The Swarm

Last week in Iraq, special forces conducted an offensive they called a "swarm," as in a swarm of locusts. Now we know that this may have been an act of inoculation, or at least foreshadowing, because, according to the BBC, the Pentagon brass is at this very moment considering the deployment of an army of cyber insects to carry out certain vital missions too dangerous and "small in scale" for regular army reservists. This is where our Rumsfeld proves himself to be a WAY outside the box thinker. Remember the dolphins that were supposed to be able to blow up Osama when he's aboard his yacht? Or that super-small army that was all that would be needed in Iraq? The best thing about this article, however, are the info-graphics, done without the slightest bit of irony or subversion. That would be a tough assignment.
