The Marines get fashionably hip

The real reason we're going to war: the Marines want to show off their new desert "pixel" camo duds (crappy jpeg here).

“Ultimately, the pixel computer-generated pattern was selected because it blended very well with a variety of surroundings under a variety of conditions.” I wonder if this says something about the digitally mediated nature of high-tech war, of which this is the next step.
