  1. surveillance? Maybe electronic maps to guide cruise missiles. The 2 sensors on the front of the drone would seem to be configured to make 3D maps. See: Coincidence rangefinder, parallax, and similar topics.

  2. LABORING MAN — VALUE SAME DEAD OR ALIVE

    When I served in the Vietnam War, as 95% of our solders in live combat were uneducated laboring men, young men with no education but some high school, 95% of the body bags sent home were filled with boys who grew up in our slum neighborhoods.

    So it is today, as it was going back to before the Civil War, law enforcement is all of the educated middle-class, they spend 95% of their time establishing a police state for young laboring men, which is why 95% of inmates in our jails and prisons are fighting age laboring men.

  3. THOSE WHO DO ALL TALKING — DO ALL RULING

    We of the uneducated laboring class, in America we being the entire lower half of society, we are of no importance as we have no ability to communicate in an interesting way that people of the upper half would care to give an ear. So, we will patiently listen and agree to it all, provided slavery is not required.

    And so, in passing take care, for otherwise the rich nobility with their jokes you just can’t stop laughing at, and their ability to hide misery with a most believable pretense of good, surely they will wrap you around their little finger.

  4. Actually, the second rounds of the Egyptian elections is today (Wed., Dec 14).

  5. The upper half of American society, the 51% most wealthy, they create an Empire that turns around and gives $3 billion a year to the upper half of Egyptian society — for weapons of crowd control and lower half civilian control.

    A repeat of bad history since the beginning of democracy. So, if I were king for a day I would create a —

    NEW CONSTITUTION
    The 25% most wealthy shall not be allowed to vote or have any involvement in government or politics. This will prevent the lower half of society from being enslaved by giving them 50% of the vote, giving them 50% of the power.

  6. losing Egypt opened the Suez Canal to Iran and Libya and Libya wanted to send oil to Asia. Had to get rid of that. it had been closed to Iran since 1979. They Israeli pipeline was the only other alternative short of sailing around africa.
