Zero Length Launch System. An idea cooked up in the pre-guided missile era where they would protect targets by strapping rockets to a regular fighter, launching it like a SAM off of a mobile truck and having it intercept aggressors. You can see the skid guard under the F-100 and the giant rocket booster. Not pictured: Pilot's massive goddam balls

It's not like the idea died in that era. We used to have those devilboosters on our Starfighters well into the eighties. Something about the ruskies murdering our airfields and maintaining ready-fives, I forget. But not only the zero-length-launch system required balls. Stepping into an aircraft with a downward-launching ejection seat (before we adapted a different system) is a feat of courage unto itself.
The amount of pilots that thing murdered is ridiculous, we used to call it "Witwenmacher" or widowmaker.



There's a British comedy album about the attempted US sale of the F-104 to the RAF that is absolutely hysterical. http://therisingstorm.net/robert-calvert-captain-lockheed-and-the-starfighters/

Also, gently caress me, because I think I'd be out after losing my jaw.

My family owns an assload of tobacco land in Georgia, so we just sent slaves to be trained as soldiers and didn't do poo poo. Sherman didn't burn em down, and just hired our slaves as share croppers after the war and made more money that way since they didn't have to feed them or house them anymore, while still taking 80% of the poo poo they grew.

FBMS and then known as FBIS was created in 1941 and exists to this day as OSC. It's operated by the CIA. OSINT as intelligence discipline is pretty old. The data mining of social media is mostly handled by NSA (allegedly not targeted at US nationals for intel oversight reasons, yeah right) and the FBI is pretty deep into monitoring social media too, for obvious reasons.

He's talking about it as a beyond face value analysis. I met some of the Jellyfish dudes at a conference for PIs and they actually have come up with some amazingly cool metrics for observation across a large spectrum that puts previous methods to absolute shame. OSINT is a pretty old intel method, but the modern usage of it is just a solid 50/50 of SIGINT and HUMINT

To my knowledge not in recent history.

Fallujah got me thinking of old-school siege tactics, which reminded me of the crusades when a handful of cities were wiped out to a person.

Actually the Khmer Rouge did this against a few cities/larger villages in the 70s that had put up resistance. Then the Vietnamese did it to the Khmer a few years later when they had holed up in a few villages.
