    Well, Kubrick was a perfectionist. He even demanded they film it on location.

    Apparently so did someone in Iran, but it was hooked to the real AA system.

    Oops......

    They know that we have all the cool toys and know how to use them.
    Hell, in that Salami funeral pic they were hauling the body in a Chevy pickup !
    And the Special Forces guy was wearing a Punisher badge !
    They want to be like Mike.

    That’s a fake video. It came from the game ARMA 3.

    c-ram however is very real, though it doesn’t look quite like that.

    Just need more really.

    The THAAD and Patriot are pretty damn good, but we don’t have the numbers of them that the Russians build their AD/MD systems in.

    The Avenger is hot junk, but we sunk all our chips on it, we really need to adopt something like the SLAAMRAM or something else to fill the capability and mobility gap.
