    Every [smog] cloud has a silver lining!

    With visual vs thermal you can still make a kill at 800M if they can't see you in their own smog. I think a lot of kills in Iraq at night were a lot closer than 800 or more than a half mile.

    It's like an episode of The Office...

    • Mid-level politburo manager: Supreme leaders require a story to rebutt the negative talk about our pollution
    • (silence)
    • Flunkie #1: (looks around sheepishly) We could say it is a great defensive strategy to battle the western devils.
    • Flunkie #2, #3, #4: No... will never work... too obvious a ploy...
    • Mid-level politburo manager: Remember, Supreme leaders will deal with failure harshly
    • Flunkie #2, #3, #4: Oh good idea!... Yes yes, defensive strategy... Brilliant.

    The Chinese are producing a line of action figures and bobble-heads for the new hobbit movie, "The Desolation of Smog." What makes them really neat is that each one spews particulate matter.
