A brighter note

For those of you who have noticed that (1) even the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency has admitted Iran is on its way to building nuclear weapons and (2) the Obama Administration clearly has no plan for stopping this, the Israelis apparently want to show that they at least are working the problem.

On February 21, the Israeli air force 'unveiled' a very large drone (in fact already used during last year's Gaza conflict) that can fly for 20 hours, up as high as 40,000 feet. It can "provide surveillance, jam enemy communications and connect ground control and manned air force planes." Will the drone be armed? Palestinians have alleged that it has been, but Israel has never confirmed that capability. (Thanks to Daily Alert.)
