Just read this article on Darpa's work on using bugs for war effort. They are planning to make a kind of insect cyborg to use in the army.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting research proposals in the area of Hybrid Insect MEMS. Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices or systems. Specifically excluded is research, which primarily results in evolutionary improvement upon existing state-of-the-art.

It made me think of this piece by Banksy
