I can imagine the Pentagon advancing similar arguments for the Neutron
Bomb: "And, Mr President, statistics show that, in aggregate, more people
die each year from small-arms fire, hand grenades and landmines than will
ever die from this device and, what's more, they don't enjoy such quick, clean
deaths. We really recommend tripling the defence budget for this wonderful new
'one application treats all' system".
