High Tech Assumptions
Posted by The Agonist on April 11th, 2011

I read this story with interest yesterday. What it describes is our increasing reliance on high tech weapons. This we all know. But what it only implies is that the assumptions underlying the use of such weapons have not changed. For example, up to the moment when weapons were fired on the column of Afghans, the question of whether there was even a weapon was open. The question whether there were children had not been settled. Everyone involved in the process of deciding to kill these people, none of them on the ground, most as a matter of fact were in Nevada or Florida, or flying several thousand feet above in the air and the on the ground observers were five or six kilometers away.

To this day no one knows how many innocents died in the attack.
