  1. Oh, great “May 12: Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates.” Now those who are funding those who are trying to kill us will have iPads.
    This would have been like exporting computer technology in the 1960s to the USSR, only these people are actively seeking to kill us.

    1. By the way, at the time USSR was not that lagging in computer technology, considering that they even calculated data for the first satellite and the first space flights faster. And they made the first and the only fully autonomous shuttle landing in 1988 — real-time computing and AI did the trick.

        1. No worries, we will be able to use find my iPhone app to track down their location before they can even think of using the technology in any bad way. LOL
