If I remember right analog would still work but digital would be fried.

It depends.  A CME interacting with the earths magnetic field and atmosphere can have effects similar to an EMP.  Basically it induces high currents in wires (including micro-circuitry) that can't handle them burning them out.

Analog systems like vaccum tubes are more resiliant due to heavier wiring but they're not completly immune...

me thinks youre completely missing more than half the story, not to mention the actual history behind the stolen land that was provided to the zion-state by the west.

Meh, people been fighting over that worthless stretch of desert since time began.  Go back far enough and nearly everyone has had it "stolen" from them at one time or another.  Jews, Muslims, Persians, Greeks, Turks, Arabs and dozens more at least.

That's a big part of the reason I don't get wrapped up in the latest rounds of people playing "I Posted Imageing hate you"

Looking at it you're right, the airspace is closed and has been since 8 July.  Although it seems like it's been mostly ignored.

Word coming out it was the rebels using Russkie supplied gear.  Leader taking credit for it...

Clarification to the above, the reason the airspace closure was being ignored was that it only extended up to 32,000 feet.  Civilian airliners cruising at 33k and above just kept going...
