Personally I think future warfare should be technologically aimed at removing the absolute top tiers of leadership instead of a mass conflict of armies, be it sanctions, or kidnapping I am sure it can be done, just imagine what it could be if Hitler was shot dead by a sniper before the invasion of Poland, or Stalin.If it was never possible to build a Star Trek type of transporter a laser from space could replace an assassins bullet.

The problem with that is that Democracy would be snuffed-out. A guy like Putin could order the elimination of the Georgian president. And keep doing it until he got somebody he could bend to his will.

Oh, I can see how Putin might do this, but I'm pretty sure folks in DC would avoid it like the plague for fear of a "turnabout is fair play" attack on DC. Only bad guys like Osama who don't have ICBMs will be targeted. And even then, folks like Clinton will do their best to miss.
