Israel has once again reminded us that we should thank our lucky stars that the Jewish state is on our side. In the “What Have You Done For Us Lately” Department, Israel has just completed tests of its new high-power laser system that, installed on a civilian aircraft, can shoot down drones. It promises to be what is called a game-changer. The story of this remarkable advance is here: “Israel successfully downs targets using airborne laser system,” by Anna Ahronheim, Jerusalem Post, June 21, 2021: "The Defense Ministry has successfully carried out a series of interceptions to shoot down drones with a powerful airborne laser system."

If used against ground targets, is it capable of turning Hamas terrorists into goat bacon? Or fly ash?

The U.S.A. ditched its Boeing 747 based Airborne Laser program many years ago... I guess the Israelis continued on with our tests.

Israel and the US have been working on laser defense systems for decades. Being able to knock down a drone or missile with a laser isn't new. The breakthrough is that there but it small and powerful enough to mount it on a Cessna. It takes a lot of energy to produce a beam capable of burning thru metal fast enough to destroy it. My only concern with energy weapons is that the beam keeps going after its burned thru or missed its target.

#7. Bullets keep going, too. And eventually fall down to the ground (unlike a beam of light) I work with very high powered lasers. One drawback they all have is they don’t work as well in fog, clouds, smoke, haze, rain, etc. Little drops of water (or whatever) reflect and disperse the beam, especially over a distance. Not a big deal in a desert area like Israel. But even they have foggy days.

This weapon can be stolen and used against our ground attacking aircraft. But I suppose Israel will come up with a solution for that too!

Does it even take droplets of water like clouds and fog to diffuse the cohesion of the beam over a distance? (referencing #9) Don't ordinary gas molecules also have the capability of deflecting the photons or absorbing some of their energy? This announcement sounds like a high-stakes bluff to me.

Anyone for popcorn? This is a short range air to air laser CRAM (Counter Rocket Artillery Mortar and Drone) designed to fill any gaps in the Iron Dome SAM system. Both the Israelis and the US military have been doubling the power output of these systems every 2 years. It was only a matter of time who went public first. The Israelis are putting the Jew-Jew in the pew-pew. This is the 21st century after all.

We've had this for ten plus years. At least one unit was installed on a USN ship for field tests. Dust, fog, smoke, etc degrades the effects massively, a huge limitation.

A number of years ago I bought a 1-pound container of gunpowder for reloading handgun ammunition. It was from an American company but clearly marked “made in Israel”. My first thought was”oh, good - those guys know what they’re doing.” Israelis are at the forefront of weapons design, as they are in the fields of computer security and pharmaceutical research.

Just like Obama had one of our drones "crash" in enemy territory and suddenly they have manufactured exact copies by the hundreds to put into service against us and Israel, so just wait, and sooner rather than later with the new Israeli liberal government in place, the enemy will know about everything they have.

Venezuela to Cut Six Zeroes Off Bolivar

Posted by OhioNick 7/6/2021 1:56:50 AM Post Reply
Venezuela is preparing to once again lop off zeroes from the national currency in an attempt to simplify daily transactions which sometimes barely fit on a calculator or require swiping cards multiple times to complete a purchase. The central bank is planning to slash six zeroes from the bolivar as early as August after previous attempts to issue larger-denomination bills failed to resolve problems created by endemic inflation. [SNIP] That means one dollar would fetch 3.2 bolivars instead of 3,219,000 at present. Venezuela last carried out a “redenomination” of the bolivar in 2018 and in March began printing a 1 million-bolivar note, the largest in the country’s history.

Breaking news alert: National Democrats are suddenly worried about the rise of violent crime. We know this because they’re blaming the bloodshed on Republicans. The previous strategy, meaning before Monday, was a mix of denial and excuse-making, but it wasn’t working. How could it when thousands of people are getting shot and murdered, mostly in cities run by Democrats? Something had to give, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki tipped the new strategy when she concocted the notion that it’s Republicans who actually support defunding the police. Her fatuous attempt to flip reality on its head relied on GOP resistance to another multitrillion-dollar Biden administration boondoggle.

The first issue of the new series, “The United States of Captain America,” by writer Christopher Cantwell, was published on June 30, only four days before the country traditionally celebrates its day of independence from Great Britain. As the issue begins, Steve Rogers — the original Cap — grouses about how America is built on “lies.” “I’m loyal to nothing.

The disapproval for the gesture comes despite the repeated pleas of manager Gareth Southgate and the Football Association.

No one has milked the events of January 6 more than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). She set the official narrative early and often, a storyline her scribes in the news media have dutifully repeated without question or scrutiny. “[Y]esterday, the president of the United States incited an armed insurrection against America, the gleeful desecration of the U.S. Capitol, which is the temple of our American democracy,” Pelosi lamented in a hyperdramatic press conference the day after the raucous protest. She accused President Trump of “sedition” and urged his cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him just two weeks before he officially left the White House.

The Capitol is still locked down, still closed to Americans. One has to ask why. The Democrats are going to try to use the ‘investigation’ of the three-hour Capitol riot by a select committee to continue an effort to connect Republicans to the event and bash them going into 2022. All that is troubling. But now there’s something that perhaps is even more troubling because of the clear potential for abuse. According to the New York Times, the U.S. Capitol Police have announced they are now planning to expand operations outside Washington “beginning with the opening of field offices in California and Florida” but the plan is to open “several additional regional offices.”
