These Are Your Leaders, People

Apparently, the Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne believes that our government should try out its "nonlethal weapons" on U.S. civilians (in "crowd-control settings") before using it on a battlefield. Here's a quote:

"The object is basically public relations. Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions from others about possible safety considerations. If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said Wynne. "(Because) if I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in a way that was not intended, I think that I would be vilified in the world press."

Huh? Secretary Wynne, what are you smoking?! Are you really that out of touch with the common man? Would you "try things out" if your son, your wife, or your mother were in that crowd? You can't just experiment on humans. Even in warfare, you can't experiment on humans. Remember the Nuremburg trials? Do Nazi experiments and war crimes ring a bell?

I usually don't stoop to comment on politicians and their cronies, but this one was really out in left field. What are these people thinking???
