There was supposedly a laser or ray gun or sorts that the army was going to test in Iraq about this time last year. It was on a few news sites. That could be it. They said it would be good for riot control because it hits you and the the first second feels like someone opened and oven, and then it gets so hot you can't handle it.

Theoretically it could be possible to have a controlled discharge of electricity hitting a pre-defined target but it would be damn expensive and damn inefficient so I'm doubting the story until I see proof.
Maybe a laser?

The story pegs my BS o meter.

What I think this guy is talking about is a minigun. I have seen actual footage from Fallujah of a minigun mounted on top of a Humvee. A minigun is definitely impressive and from the sounds of that article could be exactly what that guy is describing. Should have got the footage from my buddy who had it. It was amazing:D

My vote says: Lift your arm, save the watch. The BS is getting awfully deep.
You know, war is terrible enough without having to invent magical, unfounded stories about Demon Tanks killing hundreds of people at a time. Show some f*ckin' respect. And don't refer to terrorists as "soldiers."
Beyond that, have a look at the main page. It includes more fairy tales on a vast array of moronic crap, such as (reading down the left side of the main page): Cropcircles, Freemasonry, Mind Control, What really happened to Princess Diana, and the everpresent Antichrist.
These people aren't worth your time. Think of how many people could be using that oxygen constructively.

I'd heard somewhere that there was a rumor circulating amongst the Iraqi insurgents that the reason US Abrams tanks were so hard to kill is because of their electromagnetic force-fields.
If the other side thinks we have a Tesla cannon or a plasma weapon, I see no reason to discourage that belief.
