This Space for Rent

Dance, puppets! Dance for your masters now!

Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before being used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday.

Umm, er, okay. I'm just delighted to realize that my citizenship has been seamlessly transferred from the United States of America over to a comic-book version of the Soviet Union.

In case you're wondering, testing weapons on citizens of your own country is the sort of evil stunt that dictators and tyrants do, and not the sort of thing that you'd expect out of (what used to be) a representative democracy. This is not acceptable behavior, and the thuggish creeps who thought up this idea need to be removed from their positions and flung into prison for the rest of their miserable lives.

Note the distinct lack of a response from the thugs who occupy the White House. Impeach them. Impeach them now, then purge the senior ranks of the Air Force.
