So we'll chalk that down as the Reaper drone is really effective.
 
2013-05-07 12:37:33 PM
Hate to say it, but... Yeah. Can't blame 'em.

Is it harder to develop weapons technology to shoot a drone down than it is to hack one?  Of course you do get a free drone if you figure out how to hack it.  But at that point you become to monster you're fighting.

Jihadi magazine?  Sounds interesting, but I already get all of my information from Grit Magazine.

If I sell enough subscriptions, maybe I can earn a new red Schwinn bike.

If you had skills like that, you could just get a job in the West.

I thought you could hack them with a simple cell phone?
 
2013-05-07 12:39:20 PM
What really sucks with Jihadi magazine is when you call them to cancel your subscription and they keep billing your credit card anyway. I HATE that.

I'm pretty sure that it's not the mere use of drones that has caused them to take up arms.

What if we were being lied to this whole time and the drones are actually being piloted by naval trained dolphins?  So even if they hacked the drones, nothing would happen because the dolphins are inside flying the drones?

Study it out!

Do even bad journalists right this way? I'm pretty sure its common to use two separate sentences or to just not quote unreliable sources rather than use parentheses egregious manner.  Also, its written in english, which the article points out.  This couldn't smell any more fake.

And there's no way this is put out by he CIA to locate people to be taken out by drones. Pay no attention to the beeping staple.

What's really funny is I use the word *right* instead of write and left out *in an* before egregious when criticizing this paper's grammar.  Then again, I've never claimed to be a journalist.

Seems like it would be a lot less work just to quit bombing everyone you meet and go about your lives, then the drones cease to be a problem.

From worshipping a meteorite to hacking, Muslims have come a long way.

Well, not really, they're still in the first part.
At least they've set goals, unobtainable though they may be.

The Saga of Booyi Habib:

I had a friend who went to a lot of tech conferences, and I made the mistake of telling him a technique you could use to see who is selling your name to whomever... "Yeah, just make up a name when they ask you to sign up."

Years pass, and my dad rents a room to said person. More years pass and he moves out.

Years after that, Dad is STILL getting mail for "Booyi Habib." He finally gets tired of it and writes what is probably the most amusing "cancel my subscription" letter ever to a dozen senders. I shall write him and ask if he still has a copy so I can post it under the (awsome) tag. It basically said that Booyi Habib had been executed as a terrorist, and that (real name redacted) was now living under another name under the witness protection program, so stop sending your damn magazine.

I can see their desire to request such a thing. Really though we know a great deal of their operations come out of the northern area of Pakistan so instead of this Mickey Mouse targeting by drones why don't we just covertly drop in a nuke or biological and be done with it?

Back in the day, Jihad meant something like "an fearless and thorough moral inventory," but in contemporary times that sounds just too much like AA, whose members would balk at any kind of sartorial conformity like wearing vest, with or without explosives.

Would it not just be easier for them to buy a bunch of remote-control airplanes, strap IEDs to them, and just fly them around and smash them into the drones?

I mean, I'm no military genius but I came up with that in a couple seconds. I see the hobbyist RC planes around here all the time. Some of them are very tiny, and some are about half the size of the real thing. They fly easily enough. Some have cameras in them. I'm not even an RC hobbyist and I know all this.

So it would seem to me that a bunch of loonies who know how to make IEDs in their cellar would make the obvious leap of logic and use RC planes to deliver their payload  and  patrol their skies.

Not that I want to help these assholes, but I can't believe they haven't thought of this.

For that matter, I don't know why the military spends so much on the drones when they could do the same; Load up regular RC planes with a payload and have soldiers and pilots handle them from a remote location. I could cut the drone budget by millions, I'm sure, and get the same effect.

The terrorists would not believe that a 1/3 scale model of a Piper J3 Cub is going to kill them.

No.

Model jets wouldn't be able to fly fast enough, accurately enough, or high enough to even go near a drone. That would be like trying to take out a zeppelin from the ground with a lawn dart.

You know what. Even as an american, that seems fair. It's the balance of military forces that keeps the peace, and peace doesn't mean flying over and striking countries and organizations that have no recourse. Let them try to hack in, and at the worst we'll employee a few thousand people to keep up with the hacking war's evolution.
 
2013-05-07 01:31:37 PM
Yeah...great circulation numbers and all...but they just charged my software training client "Adobe, Allah and You - Photoshopping Fear" over $5k for a full page spread. I'd expect that kind of number from a less reputable cash grabby magazine, but not you Jihadi Weekly...tsk, tsk, tsk...

I imagine that a subscription to this magazine would require a prepayment in case your readers went along with your advice. Otherwise it just seems like an ever declining business model.

On the other side, the US is developing a program to let US citizens fire off a missile for $40 each.

Especially since you can't even buy lawn darts anymore. I wonder if it was for that reason? They should bring them back since we don't use zeppelins now, so they won't be dangerous any more.
