Jamming American drones in Syria

The Russians began jamming some smaller U.S. drones several weeks ago, the officials said, after a series of suspected chemical weapons attacks on civilians in rebel-held eastern Ghouta. The Russian military was concerned the U.S. military would retaliate for the attacks and began jamming the GPS systems of drones operating in the area, the officials explained.

Jamming, which means blocking or scrambling a drone's reception of a signal from a GPS satellite, can be uncomplicated, according to Dr. Todd Humphreys, the director of the Radionavigation Laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin.

"GPS receivers in most drones can be fairly easily jammed.

Maybe they'll send them to attack the Very Great Leader Kim, who's killed many more than Trump

Source on those numbers? Trump has launched several strikes and killed at least dozens. Could you link the figures on Jong Un's killings?

That was over a year ago. He's been a busy beaver. But never to be outdone creatively here's his genius in action.

Anti-aircraft Guns – While these weapons were designed to take down enemy fighter jets, they have become a favorite method of execution for Kim. In 2015, reports surfaced from South Korean intelligence that the dictator’s Defense Minister Hyong Yong Chol was pulverized to death by an anti-aircraft gun after the young despot ordered his execution for falling asleep during an event and not carrying out instructions.

Hee Yeon Lim, a 26-year-old defector, recently told western media that she was part of a crowd of 10,000 ordered to watch the execution by anti-aircraft guns of 11 musicians who allegedly made a pornographic video.

“What I saw that day made me sick in my stomach. They were lashed to the end of anti-aircraft guns,” she said. “A gun was fired, the noise was deafening, absolutely terrifying. And the guns were fired one after the other.”

She added: “The musicians just disappeared each time the guns were fired into them. Their bodies were blown to bits, totally destroyed, blood and bits flying everywhere…and then, after that, military tanks moved in and they ran over the bits on the ground where the remains lay."

Mortar Fire – Before the dictator discovered his fondness for anti-aircraft guns, he was known to use mortars to dispense with those who crossed him.

In 2011, a vice minister of the army was sentenced to death for allegedly drinking and partying during the official mourning period after Kim Jong Il’s death. The younger Kim apparently ordered “no trace of him left behind, down to his hair” before the vice minister was placed on a spot that had been targeted for a mortar round and “obliterated”.

Flamethrower – Multiple news sources reported in 2014 that, as part of Kim’s purge of high-ranking officials, O Sang Hon, the deputy public security minister, was “executed by flamethrower.”

The purge that killed O Sang Hon also saw all 11 of the security ministry’s most senior officials either executed or sent to one of Kim’s notorious concentration camps.

Prison Camps – While Kim’s execution tactics are brutal and depraved, they can at least described as quick deaths. The same cannot be said for the poor souls sentenced to one of the dictator’s prison camps.

Similar to Nazi concentration camps during World War II, prisoners at these camps – who can be sent there for crimes as simple as stealing rice or distributing South Korean media – are subjected to harsh labor, cruel beatings, violent rapes and, many times, execution at the hands of their captors. Or a slow death by starvation.

Feeding to the dogs – Reports that Kim sent packs of hungry dogs to devour his enemies turned out to be false, but a defector recently reported many women imprisoned in North Korea are raped and, after giving birth, quickly executed. The babies are then provided as food to guard dogs.

The defector, 29-year-old Park Ju Yong, said that the guards who carried out the horrific acts were simply removed from their positions in the prison camps as punishment for their actions, while prisoners were forced to stone other prisoners to death and would be threatened with executions themselves if they didn’t participate.

Public executions – Taking the form of firing squads, hangings and even decapitations, the public killing is a favorite method of execution for Kim.

Carried out everywhere from fish markets to school yards, public executions are seen as Kim’s twisted attempt to create an "atmosphere of fear" throughout the dictatorship.

"In ordinary areas outside the prison system, our interviewees stated that public executions take place near river banks, in river beds, near bridges, in public sports stadiums, in the local marketplace, on school grounds in the fringes of the city, or on mountainsides," a recent report, released by The Transnational Justice Working Group in Seoul, noted.

Poisoning – Seemingly too subtle of a method for Kim, who obviously prefers over-the-top theatrics when it comes to killing, the North Korean strongman isn’t above treachery…especially when it comes to family.

After killing her husband, Kim Kyong Hui – the dictator’s own aunt – was allegedly poisoned to death after he grew tired of her complaints. And to make sure that nobody else would bother him, Kim ordered the rest of his aunt’s family – around seven members – killed.
For all I despise Trump I haven't seen any of this.

I don't take an Israeli foreign policy think tank's word on North Korean executions.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Institute_for_National_Security_Studies_(Israel)
Could you please find a reputable source?


By my count, including the ~40 people who have been executed in the US since Trump's inauguration, Trump has killed 100 + (including all the civilians that were murdered in Yemen and Niger).

In your flailing defense of your hero Trump you still haven't found a single reputable piece of evidence that Kim Jong Un has executed a single person. Pathetic!

So you won't trust the Jews but you trust Kim. Considering your defense of him to the point of absurdity, it's not surprising.

In late April, the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea uncovered “a ghastly sight” at a military firing range: analyzed satellite images showed six anti-aircraft gun systems being fired upon a small target at short range last October. The group assessing the bizarre scene decided it was an execution that had been watched by high-level officials who’d driven in from the capital of Pyongyang.

“Anyone who has witnessed the damage one single U.S. .50 caliber round does to the human body will shudder just trying to imagine a battery of 24 heavy machine guns being fired at human beings. Bodies would be nearly pulverized,” the report reads. “The gut-wrenching viciousness of such an act would make ‘cruel and unusual punishment’ sound like a gross understatement.”
I am not sure if the writer is a Jew. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3079172/North-Korean-defence-minister-executed-anti-aircraft-fire-disrespecting-leader-Kim-Jong-dozing-military-events-answering-back.html

Even better is when you start the "flailing defense of Trump" which has one problem. I haven't defended Trump. Look around at the Mueller and Cohen threads, and I'm all over this investigation in terms of support. It is you that attacked the investigators. We are all laughing at you, not just me. However there are people who make craptastic and bizarre fantasies about Their Dear Leader.

This is a great example.

5KM deep tunnels, eh? Man you fought to defend that.

You can stop now or repeat you mistakes as is your wont.

We shouldn't have gotten involved in the ME and associated regions. It was a stupid thing to do. If we responded in Afghanistan we should have gotten the eff out right away. We didn't. We're in Syria and Trump sucks regarding it just like those before him, but don't make shit up.

How do you know the religion of the author of that article (or infographic)? Do you simply assume that all Israelis are Jews? Seems like you have a lot of hate in you... I don't know what kind of issues a person has to have to be constantly judging people based on nationality and religion.

As for the article, I don't trust it because it makes no sense why Israelis would have any clue about how many people are dying in North korea. If you had an article written by a south korean or chinese think tank, I might take it more seriously. I mean, come on... how many Mossad do you really think there are in North Korea? What would they even do there?

What a disgusting human being you are. Why do you hate jews? What do jews have to do with North Korea?

You're triggered, I get it. But try to clear your head and come up with what I asked for: A more reliable source for your claims about Kim Jong Un's executions. So far I haven't even argued that you're wrong, I simply asked you for a good source and you went off ranting about Jews. Lol.

Someone linked a google search for you and there's a lot more than your contention that Kim is as innocent as a babe. Not one you said. Yeah. About the Jews? If it suits your agenda seem willing to toss people under the bus and there's no reason that they would be excused. Besides your embrace of killer tyrants doesn't stand in your favor.

KIm's a killer. You support to bizarre extremes Tell us about those tunnels or the formadible navy, the 50's era soviet diesel electric.

How about my support of Trump? Come on, you can surely show that. Frankly no one can believe anything you say because of your own words. Don't be a Trump.
