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: http://www.puav.com/intro.asp
Wonder what could be done with that 100 pound payload and 5.5 hour
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.
Never said they would or wouldn't! I'm simply stating that models could be
used if so desired. Review your English Comprehension!
As for would they use them? Hard to say. I suspect it depends on what they
intended to do, how soon and what assets they had on hand. OTOH, how much
does a tactical nuke weigh and could a 1/3 Extra pick it up?
Might be better if you learned how to follow a thread. The congress post
was dealing with who in the government said what and why with regard to WMD
and the Iraq threat. IOW that was back to the he said she said routine the
libs like to play!
... but I think you'll find it's already been (incorrectly) selectively
edited. It (looks like it) was Fred McClellan who said "I'm done with
you and the news group."
This message is not intended as support of you or your postings in any
way. I still think you're just a plain old fashioned shit disturber.
See there you go again !!! There was a post from you just the other
week that quite clearly stated that you were going to leave the
newsgroup. Someone even responded by saying that you would only pop up
under another name.
Now go on.... admit it.... you have completely lost the plot and don't
know what you have said from one day to another.
You are so stupid in fact that there is no point in further converse
with you....... certainly not before you have a memory transplant.
You have again displayed your own stupidity.
Unfortunately he never does though.
Also its a post from a guy whose record bears out the fact that he
seldom manages to know what he is on about.... senility ????
Guess he lives on a trailer park and TV reception is poor. That would
explain why he flips about trying to cause arguments on here.
