    GPS jammers?

    It was in the news a while back, that the Russians were selling Iraq GPS
    jammers.  Does anybody know anything about these?  What sort of range do
    they have?  Can they be selective so that only your enemies receivers are
    In this "smart bomb" era, I would think a network of GPS jammers that covers
    your cities and extends well out over your coastal borders would provide a
    pretty good safety unbrella for neutralizing a lot of expensive weopons the
    U.S. now employs. Could make GPS-guided missles the next "Maginot Line" type
    boo boo.  If I was Commandant of the U.S. Naval Academy, it might make me
    re-think taking Celestial Navigation out of the cadets curriculum.
