Fuel-eating bacteria for a kinder, gentler war

The US military has developed what could be the ultimate Viridian weapon: fuel-eating bacteria, which devour oil and petroleum supplies, leaving humans unharmed. And to further realise the dream of a kinder, gentler, fluffier form of warfare, they're also experimenting with bombing enemy troops with Valium. Come to think of it, why not just bomb them with MDMA, and make everybody feel all loved-up and not at all in the mood for fighting?

Why not bomb them with tapeworms?

Fuck the US. Fuck the US. Oh, why bother? They're going to lose the next one.

Depends when it is. For the next few decades, Fort Kissinger, L5, will be able to hold the rest of the world hostage with particle beam weapons, imposing the Pax Americana, a KFC in every village and Britney on every TV. Then comes the Sino-American War, where the Chinese flatten US cities by launching really big rocks from their moon bases, and the American Empire ends.

Mind you, I'd probably rather live in the American Empire than the Chinese one; at least dissent and dissention are tolerated there (for the most part).
