We come "in peace and friendship"


....Over the weekend, Iran unveiled its new Karrar drone bomber that can be armed with two 250-pound bombs or one 450-pound guided bomb. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, calling it an "ambassador of death," went on to assure all that what should be taken from this newest Iranian weapon is its "main message of peace and friendship."



Iran's Karrar will join other unmanned aerial vehicles (UEV's) such as Britain's "Taranis" (named for the Celtic god who rained down thunder upon the Earth in the accompaniment of lightning )...


...and the United States' Hellfire missile armed, peace inspiring, "Predator" and "Reaper" drones (or as Dada likes to think of them, "Democracy by Death").

************

It is Dada's only hope we can fill the skies globally with these ambassadors of "peace and friendship" before humanity blows up the whole damn Earth.

(Oh, and here's wishing one and all much "peace and friendship!")

How does the saying go?

You can bomb the world to pieces, but you can't bomb the world to Peace.

Or, as a character in the comic strip "Pogo" once put it:

"Declared peace on 'em, did we? Dint even know we was MAD at the rascals."
