Morehouse's new book is called Non-Lethal Weapons: War Without Death. According to Morehouse, "...conventional weaponry is designed to kill. The new hybrid conventional weaponry is designed to maim. Non-lethal weaponry, by this definition, must be anti-materiel and not anti-personnel.

"The book takes a very philosophical approach to the concept of non-lethality. It talks about what conventional weapons have done in this century: taken 170 million innocent human beings' lives. Doctors, lawyers, professors, housewives, children, not warriors-80 million of them were summarily executed for their refusal to participate, and that number continues to grow exponentially. Less than 250,000 of those lives were taken through nuclear weapons.

"In the post-Cold War era, the military-industrial complex has spent an inordinate amount of time on the disarmament and abolition of the nuclear arsenal, unscrewing five nuclear warheads so we can pat ourselves on the back and say what a great job we did, while in the meantime we spent US$900 billion-plus last year to build and market weapons of death and destruction. So it's a shell game.

"The conclusion is that we're in a new strategic era at a crossroads of human history. We have to make a decision. Are we going to continue to build weapons on an ever-increasing scale? Or are we going to evolve to an era in which we retool the entire defence industry to outfit ourselves with weapons that preserve human life but yet destroy the war machine of a belligerent, thereby eliminating a belligerent's ability to wage war?

"We have that technology to kill the tanks themselves. This is the premise. The nature of man will never change, and therefore the nature of war will never change. Only the way in which wars are fought will change. All the so-called 'Star Wars' technology, the electromagnetic pulse weapons, are lethal, high-tech conventional weaponry. That's all it is."

Morehouse continues with his analysis, saying that the book "...takes 12 truly non-lethal technologies and it templates them over fictional scenarios that contemplate current world events-Bosnia, Somalia, etc."

So the military-industrial complex has to be called for an accounting?

"Exactly. That's what has to happen," says Morehouse. "We have to become more well-read on these issues. That's why the book creates this vision. Here's the scenario with conventional weapons, and here's what happens if we inject a non-lethal form of technology.

"I saw this tested at Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah. It's called an 'anti-tank shroud round'. Milliseconds before it impacts, it sends out a white-hot plasma jetstream which precedes the impact of the round and bores a hole through the armour faster than the speed of sound and spews molten metal into the interior of the tank which turns everything inside the tank into jello. That's how Iraqi tanks were killed in the desert.

"What the shroud round does is that milliseconds before it hits it explodes into a wire-reinforced polymer film that envelops the tank like an octopus envelops its prey. It shorts out everything. This polymer instantly wraps and shrinks down. They called it a 'shrink-wrap round'. The polymer's collective strength blew the hydraulics on an M-60 tank as it tried to traverse the turret. It seals all the lids shut. The wire shorts out the communications."

So why haven't they bragged about it?

"Because," explains Morehouse, "the US$900 billion-a-year military-industrial complex, these greedy warmongers who build and market weapons to third-world countries don't want it because it's too cheap. Plus, if you start saving lives and killing equipment, then you force diplomacy to take its rightful place as the tool of conflict resolution in the new millennium. So you start to screw up this perpetual market of death and destruction.

"We now have members of Congress who have appropriated billions of tax dollars as welfare for arms manufacturers. So, when a manufacturer makes them and sells them to some third-world tyrant who can't even afford to buy powdered milk for the babies starving in his country but buys 12 jets that he can't afford, who pays for them? The US taxpayer. We now pay the weapons manufacturers, the arms dealers. And we pay off that tyrant's bill when he defaults."

Morehouse has a point. This modus operandi has certainly worked for every military conflict in the 20th century. The Gulf War was only the latest scam to generate profit streams for the arms manufacturers and their bankers, as well as get rid of excess population, i.e., "cannon fodder" (military personnel) and "useless eaters" (non-revenue-producing, resource-depleting people).
