Wow. I am sure this is not the first time US armed Forces have come across such unexplained stuff. But it is strange that they are releasing a video of it.

The US will have up to 30% unemployment. The political backlash against any kind of outsourcing would be extreme. I am waiting for the day this happens. It will be our opportunity to nationalize internet infrastructure in India and ensure that OS, app stores and data are indian owned and Indian run.
