Airships Return

The US Military is looking to deploy airships in Afghanistan which can stay at 20,000ft for 3 weeks and can watch the battlefield.

The airship, that wonderful military technology of the first world war, is now about to hover gracefully over the people who figured out how to shoot down Soviet helicopters with RPGs. It sounds and looks cool from the video but I hope they remember the other technological advancement made for airship crews during World War I, parachutes, because 3 weeks in a floating target has got to be one of the worst assignments going.
