OK all you GLP high tech wizz kids and armchair warriors out there whats your take on this.

You remember the old newspaper storys along the lines of "flock of seagulls trigger nuclear alert" that we used to hear about. Do you think that Israels high tech radar and other gear can handle this? Strange this should be happening at the same time that Yassar Arafats on his deathbed.

Israel on alert for invasion – by locusts
Officials worried about swarms making way across northern Africa

Israel is on high alert for a possible mass invasion – by locusts.

Israelīs Agriculture Ministry issued a "locust alert" yesterday after residents along the nationīs coast reported seeing the creatures eating at area vegetation. The ministry has been worried about desert locust swarms making their way across northern Africa, and said that if the critters do arrive, they are well-prepared.

The ministry briefly toured the Palmahim, Tel Aviv and Holon areas last night and said they believe there are currently only tens or hundreds of locusts in the area, but teams of experts will be sent to the areas to examine the situation more thoroughly.

Chief entomologist and head of the Department for Protection of Plants Service at the Agriculture Ministry Zvi Klein said yesterday swarms of locusts are currently berating Morocco are probably wonīt reach the Holy Land.

"If there are no drastic changes we are not in danger. ... We have, of course, prepared for the eventuality anyway and are ready with teams of experts," said Klein.

Swarms of the suspected desert locust landed recently in Lebanon and western Cyprus, where extensive crop damage has been reported. The movement of the locusts is mostly dictated by the direction and force of winds in the region.

The last major invasion by locusts into Israel was in 1959, when swarms from Africa crossed the Red Sea and spread up the Saudi coast toward Jordan and Israel.

Geez.

Iīll be polite.

No.

By the way, when did half a dozen contentious, sovereign nations whose hatred and distrust of each other is only exceeded by their hatred and distrust of the West suddenly become īthe Arabs?ī

Oversimplification is a pitiable thing. Go back to babbling nosense about your holy book, sweetie. You arenīt cut out for serious tactical or political discussion.
