"U.S. pilot scares off Iranians with ‘Top Gun’-worthy stunt
By Douglas Ernst
The Washington Times
Thursday, September 19, 2013
The U.S. Air Force has a message for Iran: Don’t mess with our drones.
In what only can be described as a scene out of Tom Cruise’s “Top Gun,” Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, Air Force chief of staff, describes how F-22 stealth jets scared off Iranian jets from a U.S. drone flying in international airspace.
The Aviationist reports that in March a U.S. MQ-1 drone came close to being intercepted by an Iranian F-4 Phantom combat plane, but the Iranian aircraft stopped short after a warning by an American pilot.
“He [the Raptor pilot] flew under their aircraft [the F-4s] to check out their weapons load without them knowing that he was there, and then pulled up on their left wing and then called them and said ‘you really ought to go home,’” Gen. Welsh said.
According to The Aviationist, the Iranians came within 16 miles of the drone.

Obama was for helping this country recover, Republican were then against it.
I vote for those who I think will best help our country. Evidently Galt votes for whoever will help his brain dead party.

I am not in need of such services. In my profession, I am a provider of such services. I know the law, I know how empolyers obtain information, and I am more familiar than I would like to be with how insurance companies share information.
Someone who is seeing a counselor because of depression, anxiety, family problems, marriage issues, etc does not have to worry about anyone "finding out". If you have proof that someone has been denied security clearnance because they were recieiving MH services (other than for a psychotic disorder), I would love to see it.
so, no clerks who work in your office or similar offices ever gossip...nobody ever sees a patient walking into or out of a psychiatric office...nobody ever runs into someone they know at your office...nobody at the pharmacy ever talks about patient medications...

if your employer finds out, its just a matter of time before they find an excuse to dump you...

BS, there is no privacy....

Why is it so hard for you to comprehend the concept of insurance?
Everything should be covered; doesn't mean you have to use or need those services. No policy is ever a la carte.
Never has been, what are you talking about? You're responding to stupidity here.
If that were the case then every single person could say: well, I don't have diabetes, so therefore I'm not paying for someone else to have it; and same could go for cancer, heart conditions, and on and on and on.
If you don't need medications; great.
drug coverage is not required under Medicare...

This happened in similar fashion to you, too, when you were 16' away from snatching the little boy at grade school and the undercover vice-squad cop stepped in.
