Smile Al-Zawahri! We Can See You!

The US Marines have new toy. It's a 4-foot-long spy plane manufactured by Boeing that has a 10-foot wingspan and can fly up to 15 hours at a time on less than two gallons of fuel. The news announcement stated that...

It travels above insurgent positions and sends real-time video images to Marines on the ground. The unmanned device can relay facial expressions on enemy soldiers, and can transmit in such detail that it shows steam rising from their coffee[, or whatever that sludge is in their nasty coffee cups.]
This news comes at a good time. In a videotape aired today (Monday), Osama bin Laden's number 2 zealot, Ayman Al-Zawahri, "vowed to continue fighting the United States until Washington changes its policies."

"We are a nation of patience and we will continue fighting you (United States) until the last hour," Zawahri said in the tape, which was aired by Arab satellite television al-Jazeera. We're wondering if this is a sign of battle fatigue.

Well, we're a patient nation too, only we can see the look at their ugly faces and even see their breathing when the air temperature gets a little colder.

Now we need to start using this new aircraft in Iraq.

With thanks to Instapundit for the headsup.
