A Sky Marshall may be viable if a weapon is brandished, but would be uiseless with detonation of a passive device. We need to correlate all opportunities. For protection. If you talk with people in the UK, Tokyo or Madrid, as well as other areas, I think you'll hear a cry for more technology in security used, and not simply rely on human security (which often is minimal in results.

Of course, if you are in the business of selling the
