Plus the English long bow was described by the Pope of the time as a "weapon of mass destruction," but the long bow alone didn't save the day. Nor did the speech, even if it was delivered by Kenneth Branagh! Technology can help turn the tide, but it can't win the war.

I agree that I would rather have 3.1 million dollar bomb sniffers than people, but as long as the general perception is that war is painless (in terms of actual human life and economically) and technology will fix it all, nothing will meaningfully improve.
