Military tech

A recent report states that the military is dominating science in the UK (Guardian). Meanwhile, the US military is reloading on nanotech (Technology Review). TNTLog comments on the potential implication for a dominant global military cabal.

Why do I suddenly have the urge to watch Dr. Strangelove?

A potential dominant global military cabal, eh?

That reassures me, in an odd sort of way. Perhaps this century will look like the last half of the previous one, only with its military-industrial complexes more thorough in their ability to do violence.

Hey! It worked okay for forty-odd years, didn't it? ;-)
