Thank you for your level headed response - I like the analogy walking down the street with some hotties...
No one seemed to take my previous post seriously, but I do find it ironic the NATO military is being defeated in Afghanistan by rc controllers...also, I recently read the story of the soldier who's bro sent him an RC car to help detect IED's...All our Armored Forces should replace their heavy out dated weapons with rc cars. Maybe we'd win.

It's true, the u.s. spends way too much money on war. If our tax dollars went more towards education and job creation, we would be much better off as a country and society.
But alas, the war mongers need their tanks, the oil mongers need their petrol, and the cash mongers need their central banks.
Maybe this is a show of strength? China has been rising as an economic power, and with a population of over 1.25 billion, it's understandable for the u.s. and other western countries to feel somewhat intimidated, and thus feel the need to show off their military prowess.

You can still see it visually and infrared it looks like a subaru station wagon, since you can still see it, it can be line of sight targeted. It doesn't change shape, it isn't some kind of "transformer" LOL. It just changes its heat signature shape.
I mean rather than making it look like a station wagon
you think they would have the smarts to make it look like a little old lady with a cane at least. Of course that only works at night as well, but then why the hell would said little old lady be out in the forest at 2am?
