#DisclosureOnTargeting Remember, no-one in the world can be harmed, can have their basic human rights, their civil rights, natural rights removed from them without a group of absolute MERCENARIES ensconced in govt. ACTIVELY CONSPIRING to make $$$ off their bodies. #HardlyAmerican
2/ That kind of hubris well-shielded by #Secrecy cd. grow only in Secrecy. Wd. anyone believe that extreme-stealth weapons cd be used on you in your own home, your neighborhood, your community by OTHER AMERICANS while your so-called "Peace Officers" looked the other way?
3/ I highly doubt that Air Force Sec. Michael Wynne said that publicly without planned, organized strategy behind him. He was the public face of that strategy, the Hiding in Plain Sight face, announcing PERFIDY by US GOV against its own citizens openly to the world. In 2006.

I've just come back from Farnborough where the Home Office and @ADSgroupUK held the Security and Policing Event 2019. Was there to speak about - and see! - counter-#drone tech.
Short thread.
Judging from the number of exhibitors - and the fact they asked me to come - there is *a lot* of interest in counter-#drone tech.
I got to see detection tech - one of the hardest parts of intercepting a #drone is to detect it first.
This system uses infrared to find a drone, and through the up- and downlink, its operator.

Today's events at #Gatwick reminded me of my own favourite story concerning a Drone. So here it is for you all

It should provide a cautionary tale of reliance on technology, as well an insight into how UK academia functions

/1
I won't be sharing any identifying details, just so you know. I shouldn't do that anyway, but luckily I can't remember the specifics in any case. I just know it was a UK university, and the source was one I trusted who worked there, so I assume this is a true story

#drones
This was many years ago, in the *early days* of #drones, so they weren't quite on the shelf items yet, but they were known about as a *thing*, if that made sense? They'd entered the mainstream as something cool and cutting edge by this point, but weren't that common yet

Retail drones with remote telemetry can’t fly near airports, they are locked out in software. DJI drones can’t get within 2.5km of #GatwickAirport , stop using photos of their drones for #GatwickDrones . This prolonged attack isn’t from a Christmas 🎁 , Hours of many #drones
2/ airports are very sensitive to this, you don’t need to hover over a runway for 15 hours, a flyby and hover for a few min twice an hour would be enough for them to cancel flights, You don’t risk lives. #BadGuys either need to recharge the drones or launch fresh and run auto fly
3/ if they custom built drones for this it’s possible to have 60min flight time at ~30kph but probably less. That means you could launch the #GatwickDrone attack from somewhere in this circle below. if you built 48 drones (£57k) you could sustain for 24h

1/ Le mythe de la déshumanisation. Les drones n'auraient pas de pilotes : des "engins qui opèrent et se meuvent (…) sans jamais qu’un pilote n’ait à en assurer les commandes". Les hommes du 1/33 Belfort apprécieront d'apprendre qu'ils n'existent pas defense.gouv.fr/air/activites/…
Les études sont pourtant nombreuses sur les pilotes (surtout américains), des problématiques RH (recrutement, formation, fidélisation) à l'effet psychologique des frappes. Et ils écrivent parfois des livres, qui sont même traduits en français.

#Chinese. #Drones. #Rhinos
The narrative is that "Africans poach" We do not. The truth is that Chinese in #Laikipia are a threat for locals, for Rhinos & Elephants. #Kenyans need to be on high Alert.

Unfortunately, Chinese are invading #Meru as well - another Rhino Sanctuary through #thebigwhitelie of 'investing in' a 5 star hotel. Can we stop this via civil suit before Gov.Kiraitu Murungi @SenKiraitu sells our Heritage?

🤔#SomaliaAndTeamTrump🤔

The curious tale of the long history of #TeamTrump & a GOP socialite operative in Somalia.

The players: Paul Manafort, Erik Prince, Roger Stone & Michelle Ballarin.
In 1989 Manafort sought to work for Siad Barre accused of presiding over “summary killings, arbitrary arrest, detention in squalid conditions, torture, rape”. In one of Africa’s many proxy conflicts during the cold war, but is a US ally against SU/RU.
theguardian.com/us-news/2016/m…
Somalia descended into anarchy, and a few years later, the intervention of US special forces led to the infamous “Black Hawk Down” incident. Barre died in exile in Nigeria in 1995.
