My Mideast Punchlines: please don’t drone on if Brazil wins the World Cup….

Brazil’s Air Force has purchased two new $12 million drones from Israel, to patrol the skies during the FIFA World Cup. The football extravaganza begins in just over three months.

Manufactured by Elbit Systems, the drones are expected to provide crowd surveillance above Brazil’s soccer stadiums during the competition.

“The intelligence-gathering electronic and optics technologies of Elbit and our Brazilian partners are perfectly suited for the homeland security challenges at these events,” said Elbit CEO Bezhalel Machlis.

Small FistThere is a rumour that the drones will be armed with rockets, and that these rockets will be used to take out any football that is on its way into Brazil’s net. Apart, of course, from any encounters between England and Brazil, as the Brazilians already know that however many goals England score, they will score more.
