2008 – Afghan Heroin: The Lost War is a 47-minute documentary by National Geographic about the drug trade in Afghanistan.  Since the start of the War on Terror, heroin production has increased exponentially, with Afghanistan now producing over 90% of the world’s supply.   The production of poppies keeps Afghan farmers in business and provides the Taliban, through control of smuggling operations, the money needed to continue their fight against the Western countries that invaded in 2001 – the very countries that have been ravaged by the effects of a flood of cheap Afghan heroin.

In spring of 2013, Texas-based start up TrackingPoint Solutions released the first ever precision-guided firearm, which is essentially a long-range, laser-guided robo rifle. Call it the gun of tomorrow: The technology is so advanced we’ve heard it can have beginners killing at extreme distances with single-shot accuracy in mere minutes.

The PGF’s closed-loop system is based off jetfighter lock and launch technology, something TrackingPoint CEO Jason Schauble says not only marks the next great paradigm shift in the evolution of firearms—it helps users make ethical kill shots too. But critics of the PGF platform, no doubt part and parcel of a rising tide of intelligent killer apps, say the gun, or rather its proprietary scope, marks the dawn of “skill-free killing”.
