The Dawn Of The E-Bomb

Newsweek is now confirming that EMP weapons will be used as the first-strike weapon against Iraq. It will be interesting to see the effectiveness of these weapons in combat.

This also is a strong indication that another assumption I’m making about an invasion of Iraq is correct – this will be a smart war. The anti-war crowd seems to think that our promise of using "spectacular" offensives against the Iraqis mean that we’re going to kill a lot of people.The anti-war crowd knows next to nothing about the realities of modern warfare. The age of the dumb iron bomb has long since passed for the US military. Now, it’s about leveraging power in the most precise manner possible. That means debilitating and destroying command communication and leadership functions – essentially cutting off the head of the cobra before it even has the chance to strike.
