First off, if they go picking off Americans who somehow are rebelling, they're going to need about fifty million hellfires, and that's going to be a
significant logistical problem.
The FLIR is only a tool, and like all tools, they have capabilities, just like they have limitations.
Don't pay too much attention to the UTube videos of those FLIR strikes. Those are few and far between.
Besides, with a basic wicker door mat, insulation, or thermal barriers, you can circumvent any FLIR system.
I have a FLIR system, and they have more limitations than capabliities.
Don't worry about the helicopters or Predators. They have to be stationed SOMEWHERE.
This isn't a country of backward-assed tribesmen, and those Taliban and Al-Queda fighters? You want to see some intelligent berserkers - just piss
off the typical American male.
You'll learn a whole new definition of revenge.
Sorry to burst your bubble here champ - but the Afghanistan militants you are talking about have been fighting the worlds greatest super powers on and
off for thirty odd years - and no one has beaten them. Further the US has now declared along with the US that they intend to negotiate with the
Taliban -as there are now good and bad ones ?!! Meaning - you have lost here as well. How many times as your average American citizen come up against
US tech - NEVER - so on the whole a blatantly stupid comparison.
As for your comments about Infra-red and night vision - you have no idea - please read Wired For War by Peter Singer and then come back and tell me
you have a FLIR, and that they are easily overcome - seriously ridiculous appraisal of modern US tech - very poor.
To give you an insight into what is being used RIGHT NOW there are AI (artificial intelligence) loitering craft (can stay up for months) are able to
see through CLOUD AND DUST STORMS are able to intelligently identify ground weapons ranging from tanks down to medium sized arms, are able
intelligently and autonomously TRACK these weapons including using the tracks left behind - FACT -
The robotic warfare of the US is so far advanced beyond what you have put forward in your post it is simply stunning the level of ignorance - sorry to
be harsh - try not to be so authoritative about issues you do not understand.
Heres a tip - the worlds most busiest airspace is above Baghdad - and the vast majority of these are robots.
When the second Gulf war started there were less than 15 robots engaged - today there well over 120,000 of them in the two major spheres of
It is considered that humans will be entirely "out of the loop" as it is termed by 2020 including fully autonomous infantry robots.
Again - here is a link to the work of the worlds foremost authority on this issue :
