The Israeli army is considering putting GPS chips in soldiers uniforms. This is supposed to cut down on friendly fire incidents.
It does not appear to me that the army has thoroughly considered all the implications of this device. If their field commander can track them at all times, so can the enemy. Do they want their enemy to have that advantage?
Notice this sentence in the article:
“NATO has made GPS indicators a standard.”
This means that soon this will be required for every soldier that is part of NATO, since standards will morph into a requirement.
If Pat Tillman had had one of these, it would have made his murder easier to accomplish.
