    There are a couple of ways that one could deter suicide-bombers, but I don't know whether or not America and Americans will go for it.

    I agree that war is not won with technology, but with warriors on the battlefield. That being said, a small group of guerilla fighters planting remote controlled bombs in populated civilian areas will always be hard (impossible?) to stop unless severe command and control rules are emplaced. Such rules would also make it almost impossible for the civilian economy to operate.

    Because our nation is very successful at keeping the ravages of war from the majority of our citizens, the average American civilian does not see or feel any impact of the wars we are currently fighting. As such, he or she will always find it easy to believe in technology over warriors and will not be too supportive of a protracted or costly war.

    As far as China--I find it ironic that we view them as a military/political enemy, yet are almost single handedly fueling their economy through our corporations. What Wal-mart and other corps are doing in their business dealings with China are the same as treason to me.

    Just my .02 on the article.
