Al-Qaeda's Air Superiority Aircraft
Pakistan raided and destroyed 'a major al-Qaeda hideout' the other day. In this raid they seized weapons, communications equipment, and most important... a small, Chinese-made remote controlled drone.
Now I admit that I was impressed with this major bust by Pakistan. Impressed of course until I saw the picture of this captured Chinese-made remote controlled drone.
This feared piece of high-tech military machinery is exactly what I bought for my son last Christmas. I kid you not, this terrorist drone is none other than the Megatech RC Firefly.
After the tears stopped rolling down my face and my sides stopped hurting due to uncontrollable fits of laughter, I realized that Pakistan must have really really wanted to impress our government.
Turns out that President Pervez Musharraf is visiting the US this week. He's already obtained a pledge for funds to build a wall along the border with Afghanistan to "help stop drug trafficking and incursions by terrorists." Most likely it's an employment program which will bring jobs to the region, and a paycheck is always a more effective barrier to terrorism than the silly wall they're pledging to build.
So to my fellow Americans... be afraid. Be very afraid, for al-Qaeda has now obtained air superiority with their Megatech RC Firefly.
