I've Been Thinking:
For the third time in a week Israel has launched an offensive in Gaza.
This time they may have hit their target, the leader of Hamas in Khan Yunis.
The mission was accomplished by using a drone that hit him and his associates while in their car.
Yes, a drone, an unmanned aerial vehicle (know in the biz as UAV's).
UAV's look like little model airplanes.
They are remote controlled and outfitted with one or two cameras that transmit real time photos.
Some, like the one that hit the Hamas leader, have missiles with their cameras.
Drones are hard to detect because they are the size of a bird.
They get in close and do the job.
Using UAV's is an essential and safe tool to fight terror.
The US has begun to realize this and to use them in their arsenal against terror.
