Tony Stark's sophisticated robot suit may soon be more than just the subject of movies and comics.

U.S. Special Operations Command Chief Adm. William McRaven has put forward plans to develop a unique form of combat armor that would turn the tide in any battle. Referred to as the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit ( TALOS ), the armor would provide a number of benefits to the wearer.

Based on a special type of material that can switch between solid and liquid when exposed to an electrical current, the armor would provide lightweight but effective protection against bullets.

A climate control system would keep the wearer comfortable regardless of the outside temperature while tools such as night vision and an oxygen supply would enable effectiveness under a variety of circumstances.

Other features would include health and power monitoring with the ability for first aid to be administered to wounded soldiers automatically through the use of a special foam that can be sprayed in to wounds to stop bleeding.

"I'm very committed to this, I'd like that last operator that we lost to be the last operator we lose in this fight or the fight of the future, and I think we can get there," said McRaven.

This should be exciting, but it's not. It just supports more war. It has the greatest potential for more abuse on humanity. Do you think that TPTW will stop with just soldiers having this? Will cops get them, too?

I can see using something like this for planetary protection, but not against anymore citizens of Gaia.

Down with wars. It's time for peace.
