Knocking the wind out of em…

Or more like explode their lungs. It really is quite amazing how creative humanity has become at killing itself. Long gone are the days of sword and spear, simple weapons. Simple weapons that brought with them the knowledge of what and who you had just killed. They were up close and personal weapons that put you right in the middle of carnage. Better and better ways were derived with which to dispatch one’s enemies. Muskets, cannons, explosives. Now with 100% more killing power! Make it bigger, badder, louder. Then man reached the ultimate pinnacle of death and destruction, splitting the atom! However that is just a bit to much death, and it leaves a nasty surprise behind. So scaling back and looking for a cleaner alternative we have moved on to the topic of this blog, thermobaric ordinance. A projectile that fills an area with an aerosol fuel and then detonates that fuel causing a massive explosion of heat and pressure. Its really a 3 fold weapon. Number 1, the explosion of fire; Number 2 the pressure wave sent out from said explosion; Number 3 if you were lucky to survive 1 & 2 then most likely you were covered with the fuel and are now being melted or chemically burned to death. Pretty picture isn’t it? And I shall leave you with a quote from the article.

“The [blast] kill mechanism against living targets is unique–and unpleasant…. What kills is the pressure wave, and more importantly, the subsequent rarefaction [vacuum], which ruptures the lungs.… If the fuel deflagrates but does not detonate, victims will be severely burned and will probably also inhale the burning fuel. Since the most common FAE fuels, ethylene oxide and propylene oxide, are highly toxic, undetonated FAE should prove as lethal to personnel caught within the cloud as most chemical agents.”

    This weapon seems to want to include extreme pain and the possibility of a slow death.

    The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.
    Seems to me man is fast approaching this again.

    Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
