quote:
Iran has unveiled what it says is its first domestically built unmanned - or drone - bomber.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the plane could serve as a "messenger of death", but that its key message was one of friendship.

OK -- after that grim nonsequitur -- I think I begin to appreciate why Hugo Chavez compared Ahminejob to Idi Amin Dada.

I think it's what he was trying to get across. You have to remember that most people who try and talk up a new weapon's potential to keep the peace by deterring the nation's enemies from invading are given speeches that weren't written by lunatics [Smile]

Looks more like the german V-1 rocket, and not something that brings anything new to the field

There's a "rollback" joke in here somewhere, I just can't think of it...
