    The Challenges of Modern War by John Reid, MP, British Defense Secretary (excerpt) In the 20th century, the Nazis used the most modern technology available to pursue their evil—the V2 bombs, Zyklon B and Lord Haw-haw on the radio. Nowadays, al-Qaeda use the latest, 21st-century technology available to them to pursue their evil—the internet and remotely-detonated roadside bombs. And, crucially, anyone who uses planes to try to kill tens of thousands of people won't hesitate to use chemical and biological weapons to kill hundreds of thousands, or millions with ease. Without the wartime generation that made sacrifices to defeat Hitler, we wouldn't have the freedoms to fight this more modern evil. Without the courage of today's troops we wouldn't have the means to protect those freedoms. Both those groups must sometimes feel that if Lord Haw-haw was still around today, someone would be telling us that human rights demand that he be given a weekly column in our newspapers. That's why this unconstrained terrorist enemy believes their approach puts our own forces at a disadvantage, both in the battles on the ground, and in the battle for ideas in which we are also engaged.

    I'd have to go with C. In the first paragraph it does talk about the technologies they used, but only in the first paragraph. The whole thing about Hitler and the Nazis seems to be more prevalent in the passage.
