Superheroes to be integrated with U.S. military

Conservatives were in an outrage after the budget cuts were announced, slashing the defense budget so drastically that it only equals the next ten countries' military expenditures combined rather than the next thirteen like a fearful nation is more comfortable with. Fear not, though, Obama has made an announcement that will help relieve our fears of a smaller ground force.

"Basically, I'm here to announce that we're building Iron Man. I'm going to blast off in a second," he said Tuesday. "This has been a secret project we've been working on for a long time. Not really. Maybe. It's classified."

This actually makes a lot of sense. We have great technologies available with new breakthroughs every day. There's no reason to keep sending people off to die in primitive warfare when we have the capabilities to act with more regard to human life. All humans, not just the ones who were born within the same imaginary lines we were.

Drones keep our own out of harms way, but at what cost? Innocent civilians that happen to live where a terrorist may or may not be hiding face far more danger when their deaths become as easy as playing a video game. A person on the ground in a nearly-invincible suit would put far fewer people at risk as they walk in and snatch up the bad guy.

The U.S. might actually start being seen in a better light. As long as the drones are carrying out "assassinations" the civilians in war-torn, middle-eastern countries will always see the U.S. as a danger as great as the terrorists themselves. When death comes suddenly from above, you don't much care what the bomber's intentions were.

Perhaps leading the world in technology once again to create a squad of special forces superheroes is what the United States needs to restore its global reputation.
