BAE goes big on 'green' weapons

Image Hosted by

Reduced-lead bullets and recyclable explosives are among the developments being put forward by arms manufacturer British Aerospace (BAE) as part of a major investment in ecologically-sound weaponry.

The company, one of the world's biggest arms-makers, says it has been making investments in creating products that reduce the collateral damage of warfare ...

Others include landmines that break down into manure, bombs that blow up *quietly* and, hmm let's see, fuel-efficient jet fighters. Awesome.

The idea behind the lead-free bullets, for example, is that if they get lodged in the environment, they "do not cause any additional harm".

Oh, Is That Right. "Lodged in the environment," you said?

Ms Allen said that this is partly a response to people becoming more environmentally aware.

Trying to think of a flip funny reply but every time I read that entry, I get pissed all over again. I think it's a eco-friendly landmine.

Who knows? Maybe pollution keeps our bombs from hurting fools in the next brane over ... :)
