Surviving



   Once again it's poll time at LJI. I am at this time third-from-last in my poll, and the last person of course gets killed by an MQ-9 Reaper drone (pictured above, the Reaper drone is three times as fast as the more famous Predator and carries fifteen times as much ordnance. Such sauce!) dispatched by the LJI Administrator.
   Last week's topic was Icarus, and I as usual wrote an entry filled with Facts and Stuff and a Plausible Hypothetical Situation in which equipment-disabling biological agents might be used in the near future.
   Incidentally the morning after I finished it the yahoo headline was "Nuke Talks With Iran Fail: What Now?" ... it's happening ;)

   Anyway I was hoping to spark some discussion of the ethics involved. A technology that could potentially end a war with minimal loss of life due to one side's equipment being completely disabled, but on the other hand it's a biological weapon. Thoughts?
