As for the F-16s, so? They already have around 200 of them and we won't be needing them anymore. They'll be stacked against F-35s that carry their stores internally so they can stay stealthy and supercruise-y.
Tell you what, I'll pre-load the STUXNET so we can turn them off whenever we want...better?
Plus, the sophistication of the systems require American expertise to maintain them. I read that parts are not available anywhere but the U.S.. They are also getting 200 Tanks and more F-16's this year. Some people are nervous, others think it's a good idea to honor the agreement made in 2010.(Suez Canal figures strongly in the mix.) Has anybody seen Cheftell? LOL

The system doesn't allow you to unless you sign out. Is that how you do it? Hey Chef, where's your cupcake? I love frosting.

That's what I'm sayin' cuz...our word is our bond. Besides, we wouldn't export something we couldn't defeat. Know who will win an all-out tank battle? No one.

Awwww....it's nice to see you two getting along together. There's something strangely hypnotic about that avatar, I can't place it exactly but I think there's a subliminal message buried in there someplace.

Only message is Valentine's Day is coming up. You rather I be an 8-ball again? I decided the world only needs one of him. ;)

I've always had a thing for cupcake frosting. After I've had my way with it, I throw away the cake. As for the subliminal message, when you get banned as much as I do, it's appropriate.

Valentine's Day? Holy craps. Only Wimmins remember that corny day. Say it isn't so. Or are you Scot Haney?

Calm down. I'm not Scot but if you're interested, I hear he's available. It's not a corny day; apparently you're not a good lover.

Valentine's Day. Like a milestone birthday and a dentist appointment all wrapped up into one, Valentine's Day is pretty much the most evil holiday ever to go commercial. We're not surprised it's connected to a massacre. Word.

Dang it! I almost had it.

If you squint your dominant eye and cock your head to the side you'd have seen the hammer and sickle.

It's a skill. If you were a superhero, that would be your super power.

I don't talk to the Gray Man, unless they have always been gray. And, no, my tail isn't split at the stump. Sorry.

Our new member just can't seem to decide on an appropriate avatar that reflect his/her personality. I've never seen avatars changed this much since Ize Lost. Deep insecurity/identity crisis is my guess. Wanna make a wish?

You did go through a few, I just thought yours were all too cool to get stuck on just one. I tried to keep up for a while there back in '10 but I got worn out after one in a row.

Nothing beats consistency. Except in cupcake frosting. One has to experiment with angles vs output.
Anyway, back on topic. What's with all the Internet news about Bibi winning but it was close and there's trouble ahead? I know it's a different system, but Michelle's attire stole the show here and the rest, well, doesn't really matter. 51 vs 47. Woe to the 47. Is there a bias, internationally in the election results in Israel? Are the Pali's skulking around the perimeter raining on the parade? New hardware to Egypt and.........Never mind. Dumb question. Go Bibi. Go IDF. Go Israel. And the new USA, GFY.
