Friday Frolic

What happens when you combine RC vehicles, video games, modern robotics and warfare? Weaponized robots, we all know about the drones and Hellfire missles but here's another cool one to kill the enemy with, the acronym is SWORD. check it out.Hattip: HotAir.

If this is on Utube,imagine how good the actual system is and no telling what those nifty Japanese are working on in secret, making their cartoons into reality...
This is so cool but an RPG would take them out pretty easy, great for unmanned pillboxes though and other guard and surveillance duty. Heck just think about the Mars rovers on steroids with rocket launchers and machineguns, and mass produceable. Warfare is changing and the US, Israel and Japan are leading the way. The way I see it, if we are hearing about a weapons system it is in use and already obsolete in the design room.
Another reason why I like Mitt, Hattip Dean Barnett.

Go Mitt Go!
My buddy the Dragon Lady as always has a fun post for Friday.

I agree, Goat. These weapon systems are top secret and we would definitely not be hearing about it unless it was already out there. Having worked for weapons programs for Martin Marietta before they merged with Lockheed, I can guarrantee it.

I still haven't made up my mind who I want in 08, but I sure have made up my mind who I don't want. I don't want any Democrat for sure and I certainly don't want Ron Paul. That would be the same as voting for a Democrat!

Thanks for the link. :)

I was on blog-talk radio as a guest yesterday. If you want to listen to it, I'll give you the link, but it will only work if you have Windows Media Player. The show is an hour long, but I only came in as the second interviewee for the last half of the show. Not even half, really. I was a little late calling in! You can fast forward the program if you don't wish to listen to the entire thing, by dragging the "seek" button a bit more than halfway across the screen. I think I done purty good. :)

Gayle, I would not have joined Mitt's team if I was not totally convinced as to his authenticity,Mitt is the man we need to lead America into a new century. This video showed his fiesty ready to fight side. I can't wait for a real debate between serious candidates, Mitt will have them for lunch. I will take a free market capitalist over a career politician any day. My record is at least consistant in support, Perot, Perot, Forbes, Bush. I am a money man and the man most willing to protect my money and me is likely to get my vote. That man is Mitt Romney and I for one is firmly entrenched in that belief.
Mitt Romney in 08!!!
