Only problem is that GPS is for poistioning. For detection you need radar.

Maybe what we need is to go old tech/new tech on them. Position several fast PT boats equiped with Predator UAV's around the area linked to an AWACs over head. Then when they try get near a ship, any ship, put a Hell Fire missle in their a**.


that seems awfully complicated.

especially when you'd think some thermal imaging and 4 or 5 mercenaries could repel pretty much any attack day or night.

:smilielol5:


seriously, he said very little about it but authorized those in the know to use whatever force necessary if the situation called for it. I don't think you can ask for more than that from a president.

I think what Obama did is similar to a rookie manager in baseball with a stud closer.
Got a lead? Bring in the closer.
He really had a no brainer on this but not overblowing it was wise.

That rocket was launched just to antagonize you, much like a thread started by zod.

Unlike his predecessor this President can multi-task.

I know Carter tried, everyone else seemed to forget. It wasn't his fault that the helicopters didn't have dust filters.

And especially to the Navy Seal snipers who did the job!
