Isn't this the material that Wars are made of?
Yea, and the only reason it hasn't tipped over into another really big one since ww2 is nukes. No other warfare technique or technology has ever had the effect it has.
Sure there have been "superweapons" before (only super in relation to other weapons of the time), like crossbows or gunpowder, but that was still individuals killing individuals, and the people who started big wars didn't care about the individual.
Now it's different. The people who started big wars in the past want nothing to do with them now because they're actually at threat.
