USAF can take control of enemy missile launchers
Now imagine if we could take control of that launched missile and re-direct it back towards the offending country. That would be so neat and so demoralizing to our enemies. Who knows, perhaps we already have that capability. Likewise, we need to make all of the enemy aircraft and tanks inoperable, or at least controlled by us, once a war is declared.
The next thing we need to work on and that's needed now is to cause the IEDs that are killing our soldiers in Iraq to explode in their faces as they're being set up.

Ballistic missiles, of course, aren't physically capable of doing that but the technique might apply handily to cruise missiles, RPVs, etc.

(Acerbic by nature, not nurture)
I wrote a scenario for a novel in which Israel did something similar to the control chips for an Iranian missile. Instead of the missile hitting the secret command bunker of the Israeli Defense Forces, it stove in the Al-Aqba Mosque.
