(RT, Feb. 22, 2011) The turbulence in the Arab world has drawn the full attention of the American media. Riots and demonstrations in Libya and Bahrain are dominating the news channels' at primetime and newspaper headlines.

"Non-lethal" weapons turn out to be quite lethal!
There were biological and chemical weapons used. No mind control weapons but there are new "non-lethal" weapon systems that turn out to be quite lethal. Sometimes I watch television programs that show SWAT teams using new non-lethal weapons. They usually start out with, "In the future, the army and police will fight its enemies with new weapons systems." When they use the word "enemy," they're talking about YOU! You don't really think the Marines are going to jump out of helicopters overseas with sticky goop, pepper spray, and seizure lights, do you?
