Boeing Has Perfected A Missile That Wipes Out Electronics And Leaves Everything Else Intact

From Business Insider:

The Counter-Electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP), led by Boeing's Phantom works, promised to change the face of contemporary warfare, and its test was a complete success. 
CHAMP flew over the Utah Test and Training Range last Tuesday, discharging a burst of High Power Microwaves onto the test site and brought down the compound's entire spectrum of electronic systems, apparently without producing any other damage at all. Even the camera recording the test was shut down. 
Struggling to contain his enthusiasm, Boeing's Keith Coleman says, "We hit every target we wanted to. Today we made science fiction into science fact."

That is music to my ears!

However if Obama wins, then I doubt this program will go any further for the use of the US military.

Obama might sell it to the Iranians as a gesture of peace...who knows!

That's funny ...

Uh, wait, you're probably right.

It's not funny at all.
