US Technology to Win War Against Islamofascists

Z Backscatter Van - Hat Tip Belmont Club Friday, August 12, 2005

How about inventing weapons in the middle of a war? The US has done before:
"the proximity fuze enabled an AAA shell to detonate when it passed near enough to its target to damage it. The improvement was dramatic: whereas it used to take an average of 1,162 5-inch rounds to bring down an aircraft with a mechanical fuze, VT-fuzed shells were achieving one kill per 310 rounds expended."

Instead of searching bags and automobiles at checkpoints, how this for an idea?
"Z-Backscatter Van, now being deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, allows any van, equipped with the right equipment, to surreptitiously look right through the skins of cars, vans and trucks to find contraband and car bombs."

"Z Backscatter technology, which offers photo-like images that reveal contraband that transmission X-rays miss - such as explosives (including car bombs), people and plastic weapons - and provides photo-like imaging for rapid analysis."

"vans ‘drive by’ whole streets at normal speed and examine each and every vehicle it passes"

"the Z-Backscatter Van can also find those pesky dirty bombs and nuclear weapons that every well-managed city wants to be rid of, all at a low price"

The Islamofascists should fear US Technology, and new weapons that we can deploy against them. As Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said repeatedly, the enemy is a thinking adversary who adapts and changes its tactics. The US and its allies need to employ all resources at our disposal and our technological strength is a key.
