    you know what, the US staging massed strikes and a eventual invasion of Iran after Bolton getting run out of office like the fucking muppet he is would not be out of tune with how Hellworld usually works.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    I think it's funny because even in his melting-brain fugue he's at least a little skeptical of all the neocon foreign policy.

    The idea of "start a war" may pop in his brain anyway, but at least he's not psychotically laser-focused on that goal like the Bushes were

    one advantage of that is that (hopefully) he's not religiously convinced that the miliitary might of the US is unbeatable.

    on one hand, that reduces the chances of a burning carrier in the gulf and increases the chances that the actual war is going to be prosecuted by not completely insane people on the other hand, it's Trump, he might just open with nuclear strikes because the Iranian government said something mean about his real estate projects on twittter.

    Few silly drones and all sins concerning one embassy visitor few months ago are forgotten.

    But the attack has had quite high RoI... The next stage from dropping grenades into open tank hatches.

    I think thats just a super low percent shot. There is definitely video of dropping 81? mortar shells from a drone, so they are using the technique. Then again, ME tank crews and their “Us pillbox” tactical mindset.
    meh

    There have been plenty of videos around of just that, no one wants to sit in a t-series tank in the desert if they can avoid it, big unventilated steel cans...

    At least some time ago the FOTM for the jihadist drone attacks had moved to 30mm rifle grenades so the umbrella might need to be tad stronger.

    1. Why does the umbrella need to be stronger? Is it actually launched the same way from the drone?
    2. Pretty sure they generally have inertial safety so unless they do get launched with a round they aren't going to arm.
    3. Smallest rifle grenade i know of is 40mm?

    actual rifle grenades are usually 22mm jobbies ?

    underslung launchers vary from 37 to 40 mm in my experience.

    Ah, i am mixing rifle-launched with regular launched grenades. There are russian 30mm for automatic GL since we can not into high-low.

    I do remember drones dropping throwable grenades in plastic cups.

    Certainly not a 40mm HE-FRAG.


    Meanwhile in USA:
    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/16/w...saudi-oil.html

    President Trump said Monday that Iran appeared to have been responsible for the weekend attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities. But he also said he would “like to avoid” a military conflict with Tehran, emphasized his interest in diplomacy and played down the attack’s jolt to the global oil market.

    Oh so if you sell someone weapons you’re responsible for the violence they commit with them?

    This is rich, coming from America.
