Only moderately interesting - but interesting enough.

Interesting that the guy says they are making the potassium nitrate, which seems a little unlikely tho it is certainly possible.

I'm not sure I buy the video's premises actually, altho the misfire at the end seems like it could be real enough.

One would think there would be immediate radar-guided artillery counterfire on every launch site, but maybe I'm over estimating the abilities of the military techology available.

Video of what one can do:

Sorry, It's in Hebrew I think; but it has subtitles.

Deadly Grad attack on Ashdod

BTW, this was a Grad, not a Qassam or a Katyusha - not home-made and short-range, but factory-made, longer-range military-grade rockets from Iran.

Potassium Nitrate is precipitated from urine.


Because potassium nitrate readily precipitates, urine was a significant source . .http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_nitrate

As long as they are still peeing it is 'golden'*, lol.

*Adaptation from Blagojevich. Many associate him with golden AND brown. Brown must be for that mop on his head rather than what is in it?
