Who cares if it ever filters down to civilian use ( and it will anyway )? I am getting sick and tired of all the "PC" pansys out there, who have no clue what it takes to stay safe and secure. the ONLY reason you are even here complaining is due to the military. And that military *requires* technology.
Its as bad as the 60s, 'lets throw flowers at tanks' nonsense. If you cant repel attackers and destroy enemies, you are eradicated instead. If you dont keep advancing military tech, you fall behind and lose.
Develop, test then deploy the damned things, as many as we need. Now.
Mod me down if you must, but you know its the truth.
