Hey, ISIS drives little white pickup trucks too!

LMartinpic1[1]Lockheed Martin just demonstrated a new fiber optic laser that can burn through a truck from over a mile away. The chose a white truck for the demo. Maybe that’s just a coincidence that ISIS seems to like white trucks too.

Although not mentioned in the article, I am told that this thing is now capable of killing individual man-sized jihadist, from a few miles out, or up, at an eventual projected cost of less than a .50 caliber bullet. It can even set a jihadi on fire (maybe even through a window I’m told), causing him to burst into flames, with his transcendence into a high-energy paradise following a few seconds later.

It’s still in testing phase, and not yet small enough to put on a drone, but that is coming.

When there are fragmentary reports coming in from ISIS occupied areas of Jihadists spontaneously combusting, you will know this thing has gone operational.

    I’m guessing the beam is infra-red, and so invisible. Not like Star Trek!

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Really, you wouldn’t see the beam in any event unless there was dust or fog in the air.
      Actually, it gets even weirder. They are using multiple light frequencies from all over the EM spectrum in a single laser.

      I didn’t know you could even do that with a laser. I thought it all had to be the same coherent frequency. I guess not.

      • Brett_McS

        There is always dust (except in space!). Infra-red goes through dusty air without much scattering, unlike visible light.

    • Hard Little Machine

      It’s a multimode 3 system fiber optic laser so it operates across multiple wave lengths. Cohesive fiber lasers don’t have to rely on the IR portion of the spectrum to operate. In fact it’s probably in the shorter end of the spectrum, in order to maintain coherency across that distance. Longer wavelengths would tend to disperse more.

    Awesome! A portable long-distance muslim rotisserie! How long before we see these in those “As Seen On TV” mall outlets?

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      I say three years, maybe five.

      And every time a beheader bursts into flames, thay`ll say it`s one of allah`s miracles!

      • Frau Katze

        Exactly! Win-win.

    This is the first place I got in. What are the disquis changes? I can’t just simply vote up or down which might explain lack of comments. If I cannot continue, to vote, why should I bother? Whatever this change is, I am sure you will go the way of SUN TV. Sorry to say. If I am wrong, post something at the top to tell us changes. Right now, after going to you every day, mmmm, maybe not.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      I don’t think you are “signed-on”.
      I can’t click on your profile. That’s why you can’t vote. They disabled anonymous voting.
      The ‘bots were jamming spam posts to the tops of threads at some sites.
      Thank the Chinese, or the Russians.

        …kinda a shame how Pamela G’s website comment sections are being degraded by trolls who are making extreme comments to imply her site is read and supported by ultra-wingnuts…

    • I think Drunk_by_Noon is right, Petrilla. You don’t have an account. Disqus probably changed its policy so that you need one to vote.

    • Hi Petrilla, it is not on our end.

    • Frau Katze

      You can open an account and mark it “private”. It’s the best way to go.

    Just hope this American administration does not provide access to the other side like they have too many times already.

      what? ..Barry sell out? c’mon..

      • Exile1981

        or clinton

    • Canadian

      They`ll give a few to “friendly rebels” in Syria, and voila!

  • mauser 98

    more powerful ,accurate , portable ones must be in use if we see this much

  • Ron MacDonald

    Fry a guy’s brain with a beam that has a diameter of a needle and the people around him won’t have a clue what happened.

    • Maggat

      Won’t work on the ISIS bunch, their brains are already fried.

  • WalterBannon

    we already have nuclear, biological and chemical weapons that are more than capable of doing the job needed with islam

    how about we just use them, and soon

  • Norman_In_New_York

    The navy is mounting “death ray” guns on its warships. Israel is developing Iron Beam to succeed Iron Dome. We are entering the realm of science fiction.

  • Barrington Minge

    At what range can it melt a mooslim?

    • graeme decarie

      What Brilliant, insightful responses. And very Christian. True, though. It’s disgusting when Muslims burn people alive. but inspiring when Christians do it. I mean, look at all those happy centuries of burning witches and critics of the churches. And of course, we now have nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. And using them would be good. We are entering the realm of science fiction? No. We are entering the last stages of human life.

      • Barrington Minge

        I object to being branded a christian!!

    I like the Flash Weapon, where you render the opposing chimps as blind as bats, permanently. Or the Microwave Blaster, where the other guy either turns a 180 and runs, or literally gets cooked alive.
