Lone Survivor Dilemma: A Tech Solution

Lone Survivor Dilemma

In the movie Lone Survivor, based on a true story, a team of Navy Seals run into some civilians while doing surveillance on the Taliban in the mountains of Afghanistan. The civilians are presumed to be Taliban sympathizers and will give away the presence of the Seal team the first chance they get. The Navy Seals have three choices in the movie. Tie up the civilians, kill the civilians or just let them go and take advantage of the one hour or so head start the Seal team has to the extradition point. In the book that the movie is based on the narrator states that they had no ropes and even tying up the civilians was not an option. What about a technological solution to the above dilemma?

Plastic handcuffs? Well that would slow down the civilians but eventually they could use the surrounding rock to cut the handcuffs. There would be a need for legcuffs that fit around feet because a person wearing handcuffs around the hands only can still walk towards the enemy. The chain of the leg cuff could go around a tree or pole so the subject cannot walk away. I cannot imagine such kit would weigh very much and as America troops do more and more police action around the world then basic police kit makes sense. Is there another low tech solution to this problem?

How about a simple hypodermic needle that contains a sedative that knocks out the civilian for hours and hours? Should the hypodermic needle be made of metal or plastic? I think metal is more durable and better suited for field conditions but a plastic hypodermic needle in the correct container might also work. The choice of the sedative should be the subject of research. The sedative should optimally be something off the shelf, long lasting, reliable and safe. Three syringes means three civilians are out of the picture and again this sort of kit would weigh just a few ounces. The cuffs and sedative can be used in conjunction to keep a civilian out of action for hours and hours!

However, the problem is ultimately legal not technological.  The Lone Survivor Dilemma shows that the current rules of engagement simply do not work for the new war against terrorism in which the line between civilians and soldiers is deliberately blurred in order to give the terrorists a tactical advantage. The brave men and women of our armed forces do not just deserve better technology but better laws for this new type of warfare.  There is also a need to educate the citizenry of the US so they can affect this change from the bottom up.

I taught secondary school for five years and I would make the book Lone Survivor part of any English and/or history class I was teaching at the high school level.  The next generation needs to have a clear understanding of the new threat the United States is facing and this book provides valuable insight about this new type of threat!  Any concerned citizen can contact their local school district and ask that Lone Survivor be added to the recommended reading list of that district.

Predator versus Terminator

Predator vs Terminator

Weapons

Terminators are programmed to use any weapon on present day Earth expertly.  In addition, Terminator weapons from the future are far more powerful than weapons from the present. A Terminator armed with weapons from the future would have weapons that are equal if not superior to those of the Predators.   If the Predator and Terminator are fighting in gladiatorial combat in the present then Terminators are limited to weapons of the present since they cannot bring weapons from the future.  Predator weapon technology includes a plasma caster, combi-stick, smart disc, spear guns, laser nets, net gun, and wrist blades.  Predator weapons technology is far superior the current human weapons technology.  Predators win in the weapons category if fighting in the present.

Special Abilities

Terminators are made out of a super tough metal and have super strength.  Predators have super human strength compared to humans and can throw humans across a room and deliver powerful blows but probably could not hurt a Terminator in hand to hand combat.  Terminators are far, far stronger than Predators.

Predators are far more agile than your average human.  Terminators have not been shown to be especially agile and may even be less agile than your average human soldier.  Predators are excellent climbers and like to take the high ground.  In a natural environment the Predators will stay in the jungle/forest canopy and in an urban environment the Predators will favor roof tops.  Terminators are made of metal and therefore very heavy.  In many cases branches would not support their weight.  Cables connecting buildings that the Predators could use to move from rooftop to rooftop would not generally support the weight of a Terminator.  The high ground belongs to the Predators and this gives them a tactical advantage.  Furthermore, the Predators do study their prey and would avoid fighting Terminators up close and would attack the Terminators from afar and thus negate the super strength of the Terminators.

In up close combat the Terminators would literally tear a Predator to pieces but the Predators would avoid this situation and their superior agility would mean they could climb up buildings or jungle trees and avoid the Terminators while shooting at the Terminators from a distance.   A Terminator is so strong that a Terminator could pull down a medium sized tree roots and all.  A Terminator does not have Superman type strength and could not tear down a building in order to get at the Predator.  In an urban environment the Predator can easily stay out of the reach of a Terminator.

Predators use a type of camouflage that borders on invisibility.  Terminators have optics that are superior to human vision and could probably easily tell where the Predator was and aim shots at the Predator with whatever firearm the Terminator had acquired.  In Predator, Major Dutch Schaeffer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) masks his thermal signature by covering his body with mud.  Terminators, minus skin, would not emit any sort of thermal signature in the first place. A Predator would have a harder time seeing a Terminator than a human.

 

Predators do not rely on body armor to provide protection from shots but rely on agility to avoid shots instead.  Terminators are extremely skilled in the use of firearms and with their superior vision would probably be able to target a Predator much more effectively than a human and the Terminator would soon score some hits.  Predators can survive more hits from firearms than a human but are not invulnerable. The bio helmet would presumably provide some protection from a head shot but the bio helmet is not necessarily indestructible.

The Terminators are far more durable than the Predators but their metal exoskeleton does have a fatal weakness.  The Predator’s plasma caster could take down a Terminator from the high ground. The plasma caster seems to have some sort of very accurate built in targeting system so the lack of a Terminator heat signature would not be a problem for the Predator.  The T-800 is made of a titanium alloy and titanium loses strength when heated to a temperature of 430 °C (806 °F).  A plasma torch, made with present day human technology, generates a plasma arc that generates temperatures in the 25,000 °C.  The T-850 and T-888 is made of coltan not titanium and more heat resistant but still vulnerable to heat.  Predator technology is far superior to human technology so the plasma caster would probably destroy a Terminator even made from coltan.

The T-1000 is made of liquid metal but has been shown to melt.  However, the T-1000 can reform after being melted!  Melting a T-1000 is not enough to destroy a T-1000.   The temperatures have to be huge, not a problem for a Predator, and exposure to high temperatures have to be maintained over a period of time.  The Predator would have to maintain a continuous plasma burst.  There is no evidence that a plasma caster can maintain a continuous beam and given the energy needed for this task, this is doubtful.  Even if the beam was continuous then the Predator must move in and make sure the liquid metal could not reform by separating the liquid metal.  The Predator could use its wrist blades to slash the liquid metal as it tries to reform but the T-1000 probably could reform faster than the Predator can destroy it and even reform before the Predator reaches it from the high ground.

Terminators do not tire!  Terminators have a battery that can last 120 years.  A Predator presumably has greater endurance than a human but is organic and will tire eventually.  In any extended fight, the Terminator has an advantage.  However, the Predator will have studied its prey and avoid extended combat with a Terminator.  In one to one combat, a Predator would probably be able to defeat a T-800, T-850 or T-888 but not a T-1000.

Space Travel versus Time Travel

In a war between the Predators and the Terminators, as opposed to gladiatorial combat which Predators favor, the Predators could presumably bomb the surface of a planet from space although they have never done this before and it’s not their style at all.  Predators have not been shown to have missile or bombing technology.  Predators do have access to nuclear weapons that are small enough to be carried on their person.  When Predators fought Aliens on Earth, they preferred to go to the surface and fight the Aliens one on one (Alien vs. Predator).  Predators could nuke a Terminator world but would do this as a last resort and might take such a move too late.

The Terminators have time travel on their side and can go back and time and can change events key events in any war with the Predators so they would win in the end. Terminators have no compunction about using their time travel technology.  Even if the Predators nuked a Terminator planet, the Terminators could go back to an event just before the nuclear attack and stop the attack or even cause the nukes to destroy the Predators.

Cultural Considerations

Predators are lone hunters.  Terminators are soldiers.  Terminators do work as a team very effectively.  Predators are loners.  A team of Terminators would have no compunction about ganging up against a lone Predator and killing them one by one.  In Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, a team of Predators hijacks raw materials and sets up a factory in order to make even more Terminators.  Predators have in the past not asked for help from other Predators even when faced with death (Predator 2).  Lions are more powerful than baboons but lions lose against a tribe of baboons because baboons work together.  A team of Terminators would probably win against a team of Predators.

Predator technology has evolved very little over the centuries.  Predators which killed Aliens thousands of years ago on Earth more or less used the same technology as they did in the present (Alien vs. Predator).  Terminator technology is not static and evolves very, very quickly.  Skynet was able to make weapons in the future to eliminate the resistance that were far ahead of the original human technology that it used to take over Earth.  Skynet is an AI that can take apart existing technology and then create superior technology in a systematic manner.

If a Terminator was able to kill a Predator and give the body and weapons to Skynet then Skynet could probably make specialized Terminators specially designed to kill Predators.  Some Predator technology like the plasma caster might be too advanced for Skynet to reverse engineer. However, the combi-stick, smart disc, spear guns, laser nets, net gun, and wrist blades could probably be reversed engineered by Skynet.  Modified Terminators could use Predator technology against the Predators in a drawn out conflict.  Predator weapons are made of a special metal that defies human classification.  Presumably this metal is far more durable than any human made metal.  Terminators made of the Predator metal might be invulnerable to the plasma caster!  The Predators on the other hand would probably disdain making their own Terminators due to reasons of honor.

Predators can operate effectively in even Antarctic environments but seem to prefer tropical environments.  Can Predators operate in Antarctic environments for extended periods of time?  Terminators are not bothered by cold environments in the least.

Predators can breathe Earth’s atmosphere but seem to prefer using a breathing apparatus.  Predators might be more vulnerable to a gas attack than even humans.  Gas weapons would not work on Terminators at all.  Radiation has very little effect on Terminators.  Presumably radiation would be fatal to Predators even though the Predators might have more immunity than
humans.

Conclusions

1) In gladiatorial combat the Predators can defeat most Terminator models.

2) The Predator probably cannot defeat a T-1000.

3) In any sort of “war” between the Terminators and the Predators then the Terminators win.

Brazil, Mexico – The Prancing Producer

Virgo – Horse

 

The marriage of Virgo and Horse is one both lofty and elegant. Horses are self-motivated strivers, doers of grand deeds and sometimes – with all of their paradin – a mite foolish and overly passionate. The Virgo, as we all know by now, is reserved. He takes care never to go outside the lines in the coloring book of life. Virgo is tasteful and a bit of a nit-picker to boot. He or she is also a borderline social climber. You won’t find this subject hiding under any rocks or living among the homeless. His associations as well as his goals are high-minded and often intellectual. The Love life of the Virgo born Horse is never dull. He is both amiable and appealing. People literally fall at this alluring person’s feet. In bed, he will be efficient – not cuddly or cozy – but effective and eager to achieve satisfaction by any and all means available. If ever you find yourself in bed with this entrancing creature, you might be shocked. But you won’t be surprised at the skill with which…

Canada – The Diplomatic Enigma

Libra – Cat

 

Tasteful, safe and gracious living is the aim of the character born in the double sign of aesthetic appreciation. Librans born in Cat years are stay-at-home, suspicious, squeamish souls. They trust with great difficulty. Libra’s discretion about passing quick judgments becomes, in this subject, a near refusal to judge anything or anyone. Libra/Cats hesitate so long before making decisions or committing themselves that they frequently lose their prey. These subjects are, however, socially conscious. They worry endlessly about the fate of the underdog and long to improve the lot of everyone in the universe. Trouble is, they want the universe to cooperate, to see things their way and will argue vehemently if the universe doesn’t comply. The intimate life of Libra/Cats is intricate. Romantic entanglement fascinates them. Tender, generous lovemaking never fails to…

China – The Lucid Seeker

Libra – Ox

Beauty and the Beast. This subject is a veritable storm of contradiction. Every detail must be perfect, every line straight and every flaw concealed. Weakness must be routed. Sloth eradicated. Yet, under this foil of faultlessness, Libra/Ox hides a secret. On the strict surface, Libra/Ox is efficiency and power, example and security. Underneath? An anthill of conflicting emotions. Purity charms this sterling character. He claims not to want any messes about. He protests he needs calm and cannot live in turmoil, Yet, Libra/Oxen are forever getting themselves involved in emotional scrapes. Even though they seem to be above it all, they take in strays. They seek out madness. They are magnetized by complexity. The love life of Librans born in Ox year roil with complications. Nothing is simple – even in the bedroom where arcane tactics and multiple phantasies…

France ­­ – The Snappish Mediator

Libra – Dog

 

Libra/Dogs are both dignified and brilliant. They possess innate humanitarianism and are softhearted in the best possible way. You will always be able to get sympathy from a Libra/Dog. He will help you, cheer you along and applaud your courage. He’s a great friend, a super associate and a bundle of nerves. Libra is able to sort out any of life’s conflicts through diplomacy and impartiality. In fact, one of the most annoying things about Libras is their refusal to take unpopular stands. They can always see both sides and will often agree with an adversary merely to keep the peace. This is a gentle (if sometimes controlling) soul with a brusque manner and a biting tongue who basically wouldn’t hurt a flea. Love and the Libra/Dog? Loyal. True. Faithful… and mostly very naughty in bed!

Germany – The Profligate Traditionalist

Gemini – Ox

 

Ox is a boon to the Gemini’s blithe spirit. This is an almost settling down Gemini – a family sort of Gemini with eyes for the good life. A Gemini born Ox will always go forward, albeit more deliberately and ponderously than other Geminis, toward goals big and small. This Gemini is a thinker, yes. But he’s not guilty of leaping from thought number one to idea number thirty-three and back to thought number one in two seconds flat. Concentration is more than possible and great work may even be accomplished. Under the quilt, this armchair lothario will work characteristically harder than most to do the job “right”. Not a lot of time for extensive foreplay when there’s serious business ahead so get ready for….

India, Pakistan – The Sybaritic Jester

Leo – Pig

This fiery, conscientious soul will always leave you laughing. Even in the most tragic circumstances, when the chips are down and Leo/Pigs seem to have reached an emotional nadir, from out the shivering bundle of despair will shine one little quip, one last pun or smart remark to bring a smile to your lips. Leo/Pigs cannot help it. They’re funny people. It must be the Leo sun shining on the Pig’s sincerity meter. Or else it s the Pig’s honesty infused with Leo’s philanthropic side. Whatever causes it, this person’s sense of fun will be capital. As they are packed with emotion, they can also be super sad – even depressive. But they always pull out of their doldrums because these people simply adore living Life with a capital L. Experiencing natural pleasure is their most intimate aim. Food. Love. Children. Home. Countrysides etc. As they are both Leo and Pig. Sex is high on their list of priorities, I won’t go into too much detail here because the juicy parts are a mite off color, but….

Iraq – The Glib Manipulator

Libra – Monkey

The Libra side of this person’s nature will want to live life as a couple and will be attracted to early marriage. Adding Monkey traits to the jabbery Libra’s chart infuses it with an increased need for communication – and even a certain desire for healthy conflict. The Libra/Monkey combo is not restful. These people are attracted to motion for its own sake. Sometimes they need to forget what they have just seen and travel on to new territories in order to soak up some joyful or at least different vibrations. Love, for the Libra/Monkey, must sizzle and snap. No lukewarm one night stands for this highly evolved gourmet of passion. Because they remain youthful well into old age, Librans born in Monkey years are not always lifelong faithful to one partner. But while they are being held in thrall by a lover, they are skilled and tender with techniques that will…

Taureans born in Rat years benefit from a happy accident. Rats are often hyper. The Taurus influence mitigates the Rat’s piano-wire nervousness. And… to the lumbering Taurus personality, Rats adds spice, pizzazz and a hefty pinch of calculation. The Taurus/Rat is a combination of William Shakespeare and the Alexander the Great: tough, bright, with nerves of steel and natural superiority. In most life situations, their reputation for strength of purpose precedes them so (obviously) one is not surprised to discover this person’s relentless, insistent ability to seduce and conquer. The sex may be fierce but …

Might and bite come together here, giving us a powerhouse of brutal energy and excessive adroitness. Nobody will ever tell you that they “just couldn’t care less” about a Taurus/Dragon. People either adore Taurus Dragons or they detest them! On the one hand, this native exudes down-to the-ground good sense, but on the other he is tempestuously foolish and selfishly attention-getting. Taurus and Dragon form an unforgettable couple – a peripatetic love bug whose desires may suddenly shift from stuffy missionary to raunchy and rambunctious in what seems like a quest for pleasure at any cost. The sensuality quotient is exceedingly high in this fiery creature. Many sizzling sexual memories will be forged during lovemaking sessions with partners who dare to go all the way with a Taurus who…

Leo – Snake

The Snake born in Leo is always right. Even if he’s wrong. He is nonetheless absolutely certain that he knows best. And frequently, especially for himself and in order to achieve his own ends, the Leo/Snake is not far off. Wisdom and clairvoyance are part of the Snake legacy. But the addition of Leo to the cool-headed Snake character, although it lends some sunshine and warmth, also deals this character a hand loaded with vanity. Now the already extravagant and presumptuous Snake has to carry around excess baggage in the form of a swollen skull that just doesn’t quit. Love is the outlet that this person seeks – everywhere! Multiple love affairs, serial marriages and a deep longing for true love characterize this gorgeous person’s sexual history. Intense lovemaking lends closeness and intimacy to this otherwise heady person’s existence. Let’s just say the Leo/Snake is famous for bone-chilling sexual exploits and, trust me, if you ever have the good fortune to bed one, you will remember my words…

Russia – The Luxuriant Philosopher

Scorpio – Snake

 

To a Scorpio/Snake, life without beauty and luxury, tenderness, compassion, admiration and extravagance is not worth living. This person is sensitive in the extreme and, for a cool-handed Snake, remarkably warm-hearted and loving. People appreciate this character for a certain innate nobility, which is both unquestionable and very comforting. Scorpios are already very sensual people with a tendency to introspect and suspect. To add the Snake characteristics of sagacity, clairvoyance and intuition certainly doesn’t diminish the philosophical side of Scorpio’s nature. This person is deep-thinking, sometimes even tormented. The love life of a Scorpio born Snake is always compelling. They take on lovers and acquire spouses, as effortlessly as they splurge on luxury items at every airport duty free shop. Scorpios born in Snake years enter love affairs with a dense silent passion. Then. sometime later, their utterly rambunctious, noisy plate-throwing breakups go clattering about the newspapers and gossip columns of the world and we wonder whatever happened to that nice dense quiet passion. Let’s just say this person is a sexual powerhouse whose grip on his or her lovers tends to be at least ruthless, if not lethal.

The cinematic image that comes to mind when I ponder the combination of Leo and Rat is of Gene Kelly, umbrella in hand, dancing through teeming rain and singin’ his heart out. Leo/Rats have it all over everybody for conjuring sunshine. They can make a party out of a thunderstorm more lavishly and efficiently than you can imagine possible. Leo/Rats’ attributes are many, their faults serious but few. Enterprise is their strong suit. In bed as well as in the world outside, this person will undertake to manage things. He or she is a take-charge lover whose technique between the sheets is notable by it sizzling passion and direct approach. There is never a dull.

Aries and Dog both call up a spirit of naiveté. In the case of Aries there is the ever-present quality of soldierliness. Aries is a scout, a pioneer and as credulous as they come. He is so nice. Why shouldn’t everybody else be nice too? The Dog is also quite nice. But he is also nervous and skeptical. Like Aries, the Dog wants to believe in the basic goodness of mankind. But he knows better. And that very knowledge can make him or her a shaking wreck. Kindly and giving of excellent advice, this person is also world famous for his or her ultra direct approach in the bedroom…

Like all Monkeys, the Cancer/Monkey is a problem-solver. He can not only see a situation for what it is – as he is coldly objective when necessary – but he can see through cloudy dilemmas and for that reason come quickly to the end of them. The Cancer/Monkey lets very little grass grow under his feet. – especially when it come to love. Cancers born in Monkey years incessantly seek love wherever they can find it.
