Danger and Opportunity

      Instapundit links to an item on military applications of nanotechnology that's worth reading.

      Summary: there's a danger of pollution from nanomaterials flaking off.  Nanofilters that remove toxic substances may create point concentrations of those toxins.  Nanoweapons may become a new 'landmine problem;' receptor addiction.

      Opportunities: lighter, stronger, smoother, stealthier materials; filters; artificial blood cells that enhance human performance; small, "smart weapons"; receptors to improve human awareness and reaction time.

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
