    It’s well and good that there were no losses on our side. But I heart would have gladdened somehow if there was news that a computerized gunshot locator device, hooked up to a high caliber, well calibrated response machine gun, killed the sniper and the spotter. Such devices are available, and cheaper than human life. Forget monitors. Just make it so a life is lost for every shot fired, and the shooting will stop. And you don’t need one everywhere. You need one and move it from spot to spot. Hook it up to a recording camera too. Publicize in real color on Youtube how short a snipers life can be. Who’s going to take that chance.

    The best defense is a strong offense. We need to take the fight to them and cause massive casualties on them. Record the attack to counter their lies later on. It would also be great to capture a few of them alive, or dead even, and teach them a lesson a decapitation.
