Boeing Leads the Way: Laser Kills A Truck

Abby Zimet

We can all rest easy now. Boeing and the U.S. Air Force have announced that their new airborne Advanced Tactical Laser "defeated"
a stationary vehicle in its first flight test Tuesday, thus making the
world safe for "directed energy weapon systems" and, presumably, any
day now, peace. Need it be said? Feed the children, please, instead.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site.
