The US military is having trouble with soldiers, especially young married ones, refusing to kill children when ordered to in the Iraq and Afghanistan occupations. One of the research think tanks has come up with what amounts to an outsized version of the successful Tomcat Rat Killer that lets you kill rats without ever seeing them or knowing the mechanism by which they were dispatched. The child killing trap is baited with candy instead of peanut butter, almost irresistible to children living on a calorie deprived diet.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
I am pulling your leg. This is not literally true, but the military uses all manner of long range weapons, such as bombers, rockets, high powered rifles, flame throwers, napalm, white phosphorus,… that let soldiers kill their victims without ever seeing their faces.
