#13 ... dude.

(That's my reaction to hearing that a UAV missile could hit a target with so small a "radar" profile.)

#14 Second deader ID'd at LGF:
Hamas charged that Israel was responsible for what it called a “dirty assassination crime” killing Wael Nassar, 38, a top Hamas commander, and his assistant, Mohammed Sarsour, 31, his assistant, and a bystander. The two Hamas leaders were on the motorcycle when it exploded, witnesses said

#19 Israeli Missiles Kill Three Hamas Men in Gaza

GAZA (Reuters) - An Israeli helicopter fired two missiles into Gaza City early on Sunday, killing three Hamas militants and wounding seven civilian bystanders, Palestinian witnesses said. Hamas sources named one of the dead men as Wael Nassar, a high-profile leader of Hamas's Izz al-Deen al-Qassam military wing who had been on Israel's most-wanted list for years.

They said Nassar was the architect of a May 11 ambush in which six Israeli soldiers were blown up when their troop carrier rolled over a mine during a raid into Zeitoun. They said the three were standing by a motorcycle in a street in Gaza City's crowded Zeitoun district, a stronghold of Islamist militants periodically targeted by Israeli forces. Palestinian medics said three of the seven civilian wounded were in critical condition. A woman and two children were among the casualties, they said.

#21 You mean they actually killed the Terrorists without civilian deaths?

A woman and two children were among the casualties, they said.

Look for them to die in their hospital beds from Zionist pillows.

#22 Phil -- if so, then I'm not surprised ... I was at Fleet Week 2004 on Friday, and I can personally testify that aboard the USS Iwo Jima, the Humvee-mounted TOW missile launcher's thermal scope had sharper imaging than 20/20 and my own glasses O_O

#23 The first time I saw infrared imaging I was amazed at how clearly people show, even in the middle of the day in the hot tropics.

#25 They managed a wheelchair swarm, so I'd credit them with the ability to adapt to any sort of roadkill martyr thingy. Too bad this seems to be one of their few demonstrable "talents."
