The wonders of technology

At £65,000, these newly-commercialised realisations of science fiction don’t come cheap: bionic arms, produced by a company that was an offshoot of the British NHS (National Health Service). As the narrator says, it’s a sad fact that as more limbs get blown off in the Middle East, the more these appendages will be in demand – but only accessible to government-supported US soldiers. Unlikely to be available to Iraqi citizens on the dusty streets of Baghdad.
