Oh, wait, those stories are interesting. Hey, some people may be interested in seeing how satellite technology has changed too. The satellites we have imaging the planet today are not that "same old shit" from the 60's and 70's. Sensors and their sensing capabilities have changed immensely over the span of 40 years.
This story is interesting in detailing how that monitoring technology can identify the sites launching the mortars and the sites being hit.
