    I saw this article.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10805240/?GT1=7538

    I had a good laugh at this possible weapon..."Beason said he has a blue-sky idea of his own, which he tags "the voice from heaven." By tuning the resonance of a laser onto Earth’s ionosphere, you can create audible frequencies. Like some boom box in the sky, the laser-produced voice could bellow from above down to the target below: "Put down your weapons."

    :lol:

    I can imagine someone directing it over a beach and telling the woman "god commands you to remove your tops"

    :lol:

    First Airborne Laser Aircraft progressing toward Flight-Worthiness Testing
    The first Airborne Laser (ABL) missile-defense system aircraft is making progress toward flight-worthiness testing at Boeing facilities in Wichita, Kan. The modified Boeing 747-400 Freighter aircraft has been transitioned to the flight ramp in preparation for flight testing later this summer. The Boeing Maintenance Modification Center effort was the most comprehensive ever performed by Boeing. The company previously has modified two 747 aircraft for the presidential Air Force One fleet, as well as for other large-scale military systems.

    The next major ABL program milestone is flight-worthiness testing in Wichita. The ABL aircraft is to undergo a complete systems functional check and flight tests to verify aerodynamic performance, and surveillance system checkout. Once those tests are completed, the aircraft will be delivered later this summer to Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., for laser and optics integration and tests.

    Boeing is leading the team selected by the U.S. Air Force to develop and demonstrate the ABL. Team ABL includes Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, working closely with the Air Force and Missile Defense Agency.

    Ive known about directed energy weapons for quite a few decades, starting with the TRW MIRCL laser.

    What was funny was modulating the ionosphere with audio messages.

    hussars, u got a better chance of seeing Saddam knock on ur door and offer u a free anal bleaching than seeing me EVER consider u anything other than a meatball, not that u care anyways...

    And for the record, u have shown ur true feelings about the USA before several times, so ur apology is worth about the same as the shit paper I just flushed down the toilet...

    Oh Boo Hoo! Man, God forbid any1 should have a negative opinion of the States.

    Guess what there are great things about, Ive been all over the Northern States theyre awesome, Ive been to Chicago Its a beautiful City, Ive been to Detroit a bit run down but nevertheless alot of the people are really nice, Ive been to Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone, Seattle alot of places there its a f*cking great place, but I have hard feelings about how your government wont cough up the money it owes us for the softwood lumber dispute, Im bitter that I had to attend the ceremonies of 4 men who fell at the hand of an F-16, Im bitter that Canada is gradually losing its own soviernty to American buisinesses.

    But guess what? I dont hate America. Just you

    Actually its not that you have a problem with the United States. There is nothing wrong with not like everything about the United States or necessarily not even liking the US period. However you take it to a personal level that based off of facts that are either A. Not true or B. You blame the United States for every proplem that Canada has, and frankley it is getting really fucking old.
