    Exactly. Stop wasting money on things like this and instead reduce the burden of the common man.

    It was supposed to be "tech failure" according to the Gota's defence team.
    How come it become now known as a missile attack by Freedom fighters.

    1. To bury the dead
    2. Training for future missions
    3. Keep people employed
    4. Have fun.
