I know nothing about "News of the World" -- but the point I was making is that lately the terrorists and some countries have been making threats against the US saying "we have fire power too, so don't try to scare us". Well, they might, but we have a lot more. And I think it is stupid to try to threaten us with weapons as that is not a threat, but an irritant to make our government more angry. Now a few of the things such a lasers on 747's will obviously not be used, but the planes, torpedoes, and missiles in the article are right on and we will use them. Just to clear up my point.
