Default Wow, U.S. may use "E-Bomb"

U.S. forces may use a new "e-bomb" during the expected invasion of Iraq as part of a 21st century blitzkrieg designed to render Saddam Hussein's forces blind, deaf, dumb and incapable of retaliation.

Honestly, it sounds like a EMP from a nuke. The news was saying that other contries were trying to develop a "e-bomb", but my thought was that half the world already had them! Why do you think the military has "hardened" electronics?

Those of us with less than stellar computer skills have to rely on the OSO guys to provide for us...

This was their version..perhaps you would like to help the "less fortunate" ?

Sounds like a "Pinch" from the new Oceans Eleven Movie. Do you think if they use this they will try to rob the Casino's vaults as well?
