I was reading an article at Truthout about "I Know How to Beat Republicans". Quite a good article, but not really much in there about that. This snippet really caught my eye:

[...] And then there was the Bosnia-Kosovo war. As Bismarck said, the risk of Europe being set aflame occurs when some damn fool starts a war in the Balkans. And then there was the way it was conducted: $200,000 US missiles were decoyed by the Serbs wiring $100 microwave ovens to operate with the door open.

The "lights on in yer head, dipshit" light came on in my head! How simple. If you're trying to get radar-seeking missiles to go off someplace else besides where you are, jam the doorlatch on a microwave oven so the oven thinks the door's closed and the signals can get out and fool the missile into thinking it's going to kamikaze something important!

Brilliant, and it doesn't get much simpler than that. Might be good to know that sometime.

Might be good to know where the electrical outlets are at somebody's house you would like to see the missile land on too.
