All together now...

"...Puff the Magic Dragon..."

Pakistani security officials say at least eight people have been killed in a suspected U.S. missile strike in northwest Pakistan.

Officials say the latest missile attack targeted militants in the volatile South Waziristan tribal region.

The pre-dawn strikes by suspected U.S drones hit two vehicles at different locations and killed most of those onboard the vehicles.

Puff the magic dragon i the designation of the AC130U Spooky gunship which is manned. It looks like this mission was succesfully accomplished by unmanned silent death.

You can see the 130 in action during a clip from "The Green Berets" with John Wayne.

The gun ship came with 3 G.E. Power motors driving the 6-barrel gattlon gun to fire 6000 round per Minute per gun.
These babies could fire a Grid pattern to hit one bullet within a square foot , it didn't matter where you stood or how fast you ran because it would be like running in the rain to beat the water drops.
The Night attack with Tracers was like a Laser Light show and it begged the enemy to fire back to reveal their position .
The new Predator is quiet and had to see with that sky-colour belly and dove-grey top and sides to blend in with the overall haze from a side view.
