” Tom Cruise not only thinks he trains harder than Olympic athletes, he believes his job as a professional actor is as grueling as fighting the war in Afghanistan — this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.
As we reported, Cruise recently sat for a deposition in his $50 million libel suit against a magazine publisher that claimed he abandoned daughter Suri — and his quotes are GOLD.
First, the Middle East — Tom says his location shoots are just like serving a tour in Afghanistan, “That’s what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal.” “
Celebrity arrogance is boundless . This is what happens to people when they are provided with a life of great luxury , comfort and ease without actually doing anything of merit .
Afghan combat deaths increase nearly 5 fold during President Peace Prize’s administration , and yet the security situation in-country has deteriorated enormously .
” Clocking in at a tiny eight-inches long and 2.1 ounces light, the PD-100 Black Hornet, was previously a mere prototype back in 2009, developed by Norwegian company Prox Dynamics AS. It has already been put to work by British infantrymen in Afghanistan, scouting possible routes for enemy ambushes or secretively flying over enemy compound walls for a look inside. The pocket-sized drones, which were unveiled at the Association of the U.S. Army Expo for the first time last week, are meant for a soldier’s personal use, not unlike a walkie talkie, and is similarly easy to operate.
Since the Black Hornet isn’t equipped with infrared abilities, it’s most suited for full daytime reconnaissance missions. The U.S. Army has purchased two Black Hornets, most likely for testing, while the British military already has 324 of the tiny spies waiting in the wings. In the meantime, Prox Dynamics AS is currently working on adding additional sensors and tweaking the drone for the ultimate stealth insect.”
This is an amazing leap in technology and one that is surely a welcome addition to the combat soldier’s kit , however , it demonstrates very vividly the need for a comprehensive review of and codification of the legalities of drone use on the domestic front . The potential for abuse by law enforcement of this nearly invisible spy is huge and considering that not a day goes by without us having some story of law enforcement thuggery to report , we most definitely cannot TRUST the State to do the right thing merely because they are the State .
