That's about the truth of it. They can dish it out, but they can't take it...

Bwhaha, sad that it's true, but still funny.

Sad indeed. Live Video feed from Gaza anyone?


http://switch3.castup.net/cunet/gm.asp? ... -%202k%20-
Here is a live feed from Gaza, some interesting stuff can be seen and heard. The small aircraft you hear are Israeli drones. I've seen & heard some major explosions, gunfire, all very close to where the camera is located. I've heard glass shattering and falling after some giant booms.

Drones
"Israel is the most experienced maker and operator of the drones, even the United States buys from it," Pukhov said.

Wow. Sometimes political cartoonists can hit it spot on. Speaking of which, I've seen quite a few good ones relating to that situation on Cagle Cartoons. About the drones, Future Weapons had a really cool episode about an Israeli UAV. After a quick Google, I think it was the "Elbit Systems Skylark." Episode 7 I believe.

I just mentioned the drones because in the live feed all you can hear in the background sounds like small engine aircraft. And since you'd have to be a complete idiot or clinically insane to fly a Cessna in a war zone occupied by Israeli aircraft the only other deduction is drones. Also the live feed appears to be down, hopefully the camera was not taken out by a bomb.

EVERYBODY is making a UAV / drone these days. It would be easier to name the defense companies that aren't than all the ones that are. AeroViroment seems to be winning though.

Yeah that is W.


The company founder made the Gossamer Albatross which was the first human propelled aircraft to cross the English Channel.
