Interesting how this thread went from delivering Pizza to the challenges of modern warfare.

That's cause while capitalism has won the war, it hasn't won in the Middle East or Africa yet. RIFFFF's are our primary threat.

Kurdish forces fighting the Islamic State in northern Iraq last week shot down a small drone the size of a model airplane. They believed it was like the dozens of drones the terrorist organization had been flying for reconnaissance in the area, and they transported it back to their outpost to examine it.
But as they were taking it apart, it blew up, killing two Kurdish fighters in what is believed to be one of the first times the Islamic State has successfully used a drone with explosives to kill troops on the battlefield.
I'm sure the drones are suitably ashamed.Earlier, the information minister had said that "several" drones loaded with explosive charges "detonated near the presidential platform".
Mr Rodriguez said that while the president and his cabinet, who was standing next to him, were not hurt, seven members of the Venezuelan National Guard were injured and are being treated.
He added: "Whoever carried out this attack, failed."
Yemen's Houthi rebels launched drone attacks on the world's largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia and a major oil field Saturday, sparking huge fires and halting about half of the supplies from the world's largest exporter of oil.
