Breaking News ~ US deploys Naval Laser Guns near Iran

All fire departments should know the government can now commit arson on Americans 3 miles up. But who cares, right? The government can break all the laws it wants too.

The United States Navy announced on Monday that it will deploy laser weapons in the Persian Gulf. According to reports, the prototype weapon can burn a hole through an enemy vehicle and also send a blast of energy that will confuse an enemy's computer system without inflicting any real damage. The US plans on having the new laser cannon fully operational within the next year and many believe that the move comes as a warning to Iran regarding their nuclear activity. Alexandra Toma, nuclear nonproliferation expert and a Truman Fellow, explains how this prototype could be a game changer.
