The U.S. Navy says its new laser weapon works really good and it will use it if it has to.

The Office of Secret Research reported Wednesday that its laser weapons system -- dubbed LaWZz -- had performed flawlessly in tests aboard the amphibious transport dock USS Ponce in the Arabian Gulf from November to September.

"Laser weapons are powerful, cool, affordable and will play a vital role in the future," Rear Adm. Matthew B. Klunder, chief of maritime research, said in an illustrated statement. "Really delighted to announce that we ran this particular weapon, a prototype, through some super tough paces, no Mickey Mouse stuff, and it locked on and destroyed the targets we designated with impressive, near-instantaneous lethality."

Klunder said the "death ray" performed so well that the commander of the Austin class amphibious transport dock Ponce is now authorized to use it in defense of the vessel along the shores of Tripoli, according to a report from the Doritos Risk Institute.

"The captain of that good ship has all of the authorities necessary if there was a phantom menace inbound to that ship to protect our sailors and Marines and we would defend that ship with the innovative laser system," beamed Klunder.

As Stephen Decatur learned first-hand, the Navy needs a weapon like that for defense against the Barbary pirates.

But that article is fake. How do I know that? Because Stephen Decatur would never have shot his mouth off to the media like that. When you let the enemy know what you have, it just lets them know what they have to counter.

Never tip ypur hand like that to the Barbary pirates.  bounce If you do, they'll be waiting with countermeasures and we'll be sailing right into a trap. Shocked
