I don't know what you're talking about - I previously pointed out to not put too much faith in those FLIR videos you see on YouTube, and you start
talking about some crap about guerilla fighting success for 30 years?
Sooooo, FLIR hasn't completely wiped them out? You just validated my point by arguing for me while arguing against me.
One point you're entirely incorrect on. The Afghani's HAVE been defeated - by a Westerner. Alexander depopulated entire regions, but he certainly
defeated them. You were saying . . .
You ask how often has a typical American come up against US tech? I'm assuming you have a point to make - but failed to?
While most Americans don't have experience milking or humping goats, surely you aren't suggesting that the millions of veterans, including decorated
combat veterans - who live here in the US - the very ones who actually use/used such equipment - and they never learned a damned thing about American
Who better to know American military equipment than those American civilians who design, construct, train, and use that same equipment? Who happen to
There goes your blatantly stupid supposition.
And no, don't tell me I don't have any idea. You spout AI drones, and technologies able to see through dust and water clouds from miles high, able
to locate and monitor vehicles, ground weapons systems, tanks, small arms and personnel -
well, Slick - I have a question for you -
IF these detection systems are so great, then why in hell are we STILL in Afghanistan? After all, according to your bloated, pretentious, and
erroneous claims of the enormous capabilities of these detection and weapons systems - every Taliban and guerilla should be dead by now - killed by
your super drone and impossible to defeat detection system.
NOT a FACT.
Robotic warfare? This isn't a Predator movie, and you'll need to stop confusing science fiction with reality. There's a difference. Your
authoritative stance is much akin to a veterinary chute for bulls. Yep. Right there on the ground.
Baghdad has the most aerial robots? What? An RC Model flying club? Because if they were any damned good at detection, there wouldn't be all the
militants and militia groups able to traverse long distances while armed. So what's wrong with this picture?
Let me explain something sonny. If you'll go back to the early and mid sixties and read the Popular Mechanics or Popular Science periodicals,
you'll find that we're all supposed to be driving flying cars, enjoying transatlantic ground effect flights, have vacation colonies on Mars and the
moons of Saturn, have cured cancer and most degenerative diseases, be using free energy, and autobots are supposed to be driving our cars, keeping a
sharp silicone chip lookout for nearsubsonic trains, and will take us to the undersea transatlantic tunnel from the US to Europe where you travel with
pulsed air pressure.
Do you already have your personal deep water submarine that runs on resonant plasma? Yeah. I didn't think so.
Wiredforwar is just another dreambook. Geez.
So why don't you read up, and come back to the thread.
One other thing - never trust a single "authority" on anything.
A lot fewer disappointments that way.
We're supposed to have ray guns, and not even need helicopters right now. My God, this is the twenty-first Century.
