Re: US aircraft carrier breaks record for number

1118 bombs dropped in 1407 sorties? Sounds like a lot of wasted sorties even if you assume each plane carried only one bomb. Assuming no change in the rules of engagement, ISIS may outlast Obama's successor.

Re: Interesting interview on drones

Re: Speaking of Lasers...

I wouldn't worry about it. There are so many challenges to weaponizing lasers. You won't see this in the field for quite some time. And even then, they'll be "magic bullets", i.e. only good for one or a few shots.
