Army “Revolutionary” XM25 weapon will revolutionize US people killing

The $35,000 rifle fires exploding ordnance, enabling US infantrymen to kill people behind walls or at distances of 2,300 ft. No indication that our soldiers can now SEE behind walls, or differentiate between combatants and noncombatants at such great distance. Meaning the XM25 will “revolutionize” killing, as military spokesmen say, probably the same innocents we’re massacring now, but an order of higher magnitude. If the same braggarts had a hand in naming the XM25, it means times (X) a magnitude (M) of 25, which I’ll bet is an arbitrary underestimation, where Collateral Damage approaches 100%. And get this, the Army assure us that the XM25 can be fired from the safety of distance and from cover, both of which the XM25 deprives of our adversary. “Revolutionary” pretends to reference the spirit of America’s only defensible war for our independence, but it really means another leap in the arms race, use of disproportional power, further distorting our inhuman arm’s length from war conventions, eliminating “cover” for our victims, but not for our own fighters because our opponents could never afford such a weapon. The DoD’s own words.

It’s class war after all. The haves against the have-nots. Specifically have-not the means to defend themselves from foreign oppressors. Nothing revolutionary about the wealthy keeping down the people.

And there’s nothing technologically revolutionary about the XM25 either. Laser metering, exploding bullets, timed remote detonation, none of those is a new development. Putting all that into a rifle bore is just a matter of budgeting for sky-is-the-limit weaponry. We could make guns that launched miniature yellow submarines if defense spending wanted to bear the expense.

  1. Explosive rounds used against people is a violation of the Geneva and Hague Conventions. Those who believe we should take them seriously when they bark about being strict constructional Constitutionalists, Article VI

    This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

    Treaties like the Hague and Geneva Conventions.
    Also the “states rights” argument takes a beating in that.

    Good thing they don’t require a religious test for it either, because then the supporters of dismantling constitution in the name of constitution would have the state prosecuting them for Blasphemy. Which under Old Testament Law is punished by stoning unto death.
    What’s that thing they put on bumper stickers, lawn signs and tee-shirts about their support for the Death Penalty?
    Break the commandment, keep the commandment?

    That would REQUIRE that they be taken out and stoned for blasphemy.

    For that matter Treason and in some cases Sedition are Capital Crimes too.

    Like, unilaterally breaking Constitutionally mandated treaties.
