Shown in a news clip where the attitude of the Iraqis toward Americans was being discussed (FOX News 12:26 PM, Saturday 6/19/04) was one Iraqi waving the fuselage of a model plane (pusher configuration) as others wave standard armaments in protest.
Yep! That's it! Carry it to the extreme in an attempt to make a joke of it. Then maybe everyone will laugh and forget about it and write it all off as a stupid idea. Probably the same tactic used when the idea of flying hi-jacked airliners into buildings was first suggested.
Fact of the matter is, the potential for such a thing to be a threat is real. Consider how much bad stuff could be carried by a 1/3 scale extra which is normally capable of hovering on the prop? And while you're at it, consider what the main difference is between your toy airplane and any one of the many UAV's in the world today? The answer is the size of the budget!
Here's a link to one of the more popular ones out there and it is by no means the smallest:
what could be done with that 100 pound payload and 5.5 hour endurance?
Yep. G.W. just leaves keeping everybody shaking in their boots. Even after proven wrong by the whole world he just keeps spouting the same lies. I've stopped worrying about him. He'll be gone in November. All he has to do is just keep lieing to us and being proved to be lieing. Americans will only take so much bullshit!
Fear factor? Not hardly. Just tired of all the fools here who claim models can't be used in this manner.
And as for your comment about it maybe being one of ours, did you bother to read my comment of "Possibly the remnants of one of the many UAV's being used over there."? Of course the trick here is to understand that it is our military using so many of these things.
What lies are you claiming now? Perhaps we should get some of the left wing quotes out here too! You know the ones, where Clinton, Kennedy, Kerry, Dean and others all state that something needs to be done about Saddam and the Iraqi threat! Or are we pretending that the left has never, ever said anything like that?
The main liars are the left and their media, and terrorists trying to get GW out of office because their lifespan is being threatened. Left media lies, just look at the actual 911 commision report verses what the NYT reported for poof. The only thing I can figure is too many people aren't smart enough to read anything, or they only read the fiction that the NYT and LA Times puts out, so they listen to the the crap verbage their party leaders put out. Gee's even the Clintons agree GW was correct in attacking Iraq.
