It would seem that the Predator drone has been very successful in locating insurgents firing mortars and I imagine it could be useful in watching for insurgent asshats setting up IEDs and other things.
The question is, how many of them do we have and how much do they cost? It would be nice if we could have them on station above all the troubled cities in Iraq 24/7, as well as along border areas. I just don't know if we have the numbers to do that, but it would be nice if we did.
BTW, I'd like to see them all carrying Hellfires as well for those "targets of opportunity" that present themselves. One of those made a bad day for those fucksticks who fired that mortar a few days ago. You folks see that video?
