BitwiseShift: 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.


Sartorial conformity nothing, just try to even get an AA group to decide on a coffee distributor at a business meeting sometime. It's less like herding cats and more like trying to force the north poles of ten magnets together all at once with your hands.

Yup. If  foreign owned killbots were flying over my country's airspace blowing up civilians I'd become quite devoted to learning how to make them stop working.

There is only one drone I am interested in hacking into.

DubtodaIll: Is it harder to develop weapons technology to shoot a drone down than it is to hack one?


I imagine it's hard to do either when you live in a farking cave.

Hackings kind of hard.  They could try skydiving suicide bombers.
They wouldn't even need a parachute.

"New "Jihadi" magazine says that Muslims all over the world should devote themselves to developing software and tools to hack into US drones and take them over or disable them, and that if they could do that really really, soon that'd be super.., "

I think that would be a worthy goal for everyone, Muslim or not, to do. Seriously, do you really want some "insect" videoing you in bed with your girlfriend? It's gonna happen, and you know it.

Actually, I'm sort of in favor of drone technology --- if EVERYONE had it. Scenario: you're black and get stopped by a cop in Beverly Hills. The conversation goes something like this:

(Cop car bullhorn) "GET OUT OF THE CAR AND ASSUME THE POSITION!!!!"
"Yes, officer." (assumes position on car hood, hands & legs out).
"WAIT! What's that goddamned big insect doing circling around us?"
"That's my personal protection drone, officer. It's recording, sound and video, everything happening here."
"WELL TURN IT OFF!"
"Sorry officer, it's on automatic mode. And as you know I can't turn it off until I get home to the control panel."
(Grumbling) "OK, did you know that your tail light was out?"
"No officer, I didn't. I'll get it fixed right away."
"OK, have a good day"

Seriously, folks, that's what we need.

/Would also be useful for when I have an argument with my wife and she claims she never said I was an asshole.

Couldn't they just bribe American politicians to set up military tech labs in Muslim countries?  It seemed to work for the Chinese.

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



Grit Magazine is an unreliable source anyway because of its disbelief in Allah.

Sooner or later whether it comes from the natural progression of Moore's Law, or some bright mathematician, or some break in quantum computing... A lot of what we currently depend on is gonna all fall down.

I don't have a problem with drones. If they keep US soldiers from being out there in a war zone where you can't tell friend from foe, then fine.

The real scary thing is, that with our current technology, anything programmed can eventually be hacked. I'm rather surprised they haven't put a self destruct charge in those things because, eventually, they would get shot down. They had self destruct charges in the original Mercury space capsules and, I think in the Gemini, so if one was about to fall into foreign hands, they could blow it to bits. Every orbital rocket had a self destruct charge in it at the time to blow it up if it went off course.

I would think if we have such a sophisticated remote weapons system that we'd not want it to fall intact into enemy hands. What have we lost so far? Two or three?

German submariners had charges in their subs in WW2 to scuttle them and keep them from falling into enemy hands. Bomber pilots with the Norden Bomb sight were instructed to destroy it if they got shot down.

US ships with early top secret radar had, I read somewhere, instructions to destroy the radar shack if the ship was going to be lost. (The shack was high above the superstructure.)

So, I would assume it would be common sense to send a military, sophisticated drone out with a self destruct charge to blast at least the primary computer circuitry into dust.

BTW, the last time the Muslims went all jihad they pi$$ed off the Christians, who promptly started the Crusades and kicked their arses. We Christians are very good when it comes to killing 'non-believers'. They're even very good when it comes to killing over their own belief systems.

(The IRA was pretty good with terrorism in the battle over Catholicism and Protestants. They had no problem with blowing up stores and businesses full of men, women and children as an object lesson. Maybe we need to poke them with a stick and turn them loose on the Radical Muslims.)

I mean, Christians have no problem blowing up abortion clinics and slaughtering the staff. Plus, the Muslims are thoroughly pi$$ing off the Jews also and they have a reputation for kicking arse once stirred up.

So we take all of this force, combine it and unleash a Crusade like never before seen, made up of Christians and Jews and unleash it on the radical Muslims. No one fights with more determination than fanatics. The radical Islamic sect would vanish.

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.


I don't know how many journalists right that way, but I'm pretty sure that some do write that way.  And some of them might use parentheses IN AN egregious manner, yes.

Nice troll, by the way.

I assume it's not impossible if you have the money and time. And some of these nuts do. Chinese probably have the plans for them, as they steal tons of mil tech. If anything you can jam the communication for it. Drones hate raspberry.

Okay, I'm confused. If Allah is "All-Wise" and "All-Mighty" why doesn't He just turn those drones around, or make them crash into the nearest cumulo-granite or something like that? I mean...why allow the drones to kill His faithful believers?

meanmutton: DubtodaIll: 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.

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


MY uderstanding is there are often plenty of arms to take up off the ground after a drone attack, amoung other body parts.

so maybe it is.
