** There are is no such persons - you stinking LIAR.
** " swanny " the * LIAR * deliberately omitted the rest of the story:
" Terrorists have used mobile phones to detonate remote-controlled bombs in Iraq and in the second Bali bomb attacks. It is expected mobile phone calls will drop out in an area THE SIZE OF A FOOTBALL FIELD as the helicopter passes overhead.
The technology was first used by the US President when Mr Bush attended the APEC summit in Pusan, South Korea, in 2005. "
Or simply use a different trigger now that it's been widely publicised a mobile phone won't work. Are they just going to block mobile phones, or will it be a wideband blackout affecting a lot of other stuff too I wonder?
A blackout "the size of a football field" is a pretty narrow area when the chopper has to fly at a decent height to avoid all the high-rise buildings. I suspect it will be a somewhat larger area than a football field for a lot of the time.
Why don't they just mount the transmitter on Dubya's car, he can wear a tin foil hat to protect himself. Couldn't look any more stupid than he already does :->
I guess the terrorists will just have to rustle up a bomb with a lethal blast radius greater than a football field.
Given the multitude of frequencies that could be used to trigger something like that, I'm guessing it'll wipe out just about everything.
Sydey residents should be grateful for just having to bear the chopper - when he came to Canberra last time for his last pointless visit - as "reward" for "Man of Steel" John's support of the decisive victory that is Iraq, they had F/A18's criss-crossing the city all night. God knows what they were actually meant to do if anything happened...
Then again, I don't quite see why any terrorist would want to blow him up - he's done more for furthering their cause and growth than they ever could have achieved without his assistance.
It still doesnt alter the fact that jammers are illegal in this country. I dont recall hearing of the same courtesy being given to John Howard when he was in the US. John Howard has repeadly stated that when Aussies break a law in another country, they should face that other countries penalties, therefore, I expect him to penalise Bush under our laws.
