Lieutenant colonel Brian Christmas should lighten up. He says that blasting Taliban with Metal is “inappropriate”.
On the contrary Sir. Heavy Metal IS a weapon and should be used as such. It aggregates the seething frustrations of disaffected youth (see Kill ’em All by Metallica, 1983) and concentrates it in a beam of sound so fierce and disturbing to medieval ears that “insurgents lay down their arms”.
I suppose liquifying Taliban into pink mist with 30mm cannons from the comfort of a gunship would be more appropriate?
The U.S. Military is spending billions developping invisibility suits, long range stun guns, ground based lasers, everything and anything to neutralize the enemy from a distance and yet they turn their backs on the most pottent weapon of all: Teen Angst!
