POST-MODERN WARFARE by Steven Metz April 2000

Page 7 of The Next Twist of the RMA:
"Soon technology, particularly mini- or micro-robots, may allow military planners to select which individual or physical object in a building is to be destroyed. For the first time, it might be possible to target only the aggressor's leaders, leaving noncombatants untouched. Killer robots the size of a grain of sand might search for and kill the future Saddam Husseins of the world."
Idea by Edward Greisch, from 1999:
What if we gave a war and nobody died?
Idea 2: Nanobot repairs psychopathic dictator's brain, making him into a nice person who hands power over to a democratic government.
