An IP address for every bullet.

No, seriously

Quote from: article
For defense strategists, IPv6 is science fiction come to life. John Stenbit, former CIO of the Department of Defense, says that every soldier, spy plane and even every bullet will eventually have its own IP address, giving the military an incredible level of real-time visibility into combat zones.

What about shotgun pellets?

Surely they're talking about missiles and not about individual rifle bullets here?

So the general can sit and look at the mini-map? Cool. Now all we need is a way for them to click on individual units to give orders.

I'm more concerned about the end of internet anonymity.  While it will be more secure that security will have lethal consequences for dissidents in China and similar places.  No wonder they're so interested in it.

Indeed.
Though I have big hopes for technology always progressing faster than control does.
At worse, we'll have camouflaged people stalking trough the woods with wireless radio modems, then coming back home with whatever illegal information they managed to poach.;)
