Hyperspectral sensors could be key to the battle of Gaza—but they have their limits
This is a really good article. Super informative. On the one hand, I thought the technology was actually better than it is and on the other, as a soldier once, I cannot imagine a more scary thing than fighting in tunnels, including Vietnam and now in Gaza. I never had to do that and never wanted to, that takes a special breed.
I knew "tunnel rats" in Vietnam with the First InfantryvD
Excellent article and very timely. For three weeks the Israeli government talked of "destroying Hamas," without explaining how this might be accomplished. I for one think that no matter how needed such outcome may be, it is much easier said than done. Today we learn from an advisor close to the leadership that the objective is now "payback." Obviously, much easier to achieve, but at what cost to the hostages and the civilian population of Gaza? I fear that the price will be enormous with the priority placed on destroying the tunnels and the people above and below ground and not so much consideration given to the fate of the hostages.
Excellent work n valuable addition to the dopy mainstream coverage.
