Agreed.  This is an interesting use of nanotechnology.  After reading "500 percent more lethal", it's difficult to stay neutral and imagine non-military applications.

This is another example of innovation in weaponry.  Just think, this could lower the military's carbon footprint. 

All kidding aside, while it would be nice if we did not have to use these things, by being more effective we limit the number of conflicts overall.  This is an interesting use of materials and the nanotechnology research should yield some interesting results.
