I don't think this ones going to make the threshold for White House bandwidth. It hasn't done anything since I signed it and none of my pals are taking the hint.(puss) Time to just leave Afghanistan and let them slaughter themselves.
See the boys in the air made an Iranian jet change its mind as it was attempting to confront a drone in International airspace. He apparently wasn't about to engage anything that could shoot back. That's what I'm talkin about, Willis.

A new government was born today in Israel, leaving me very optimistic. This is not the government prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu hoped for, he was forced to leave the Ultra-Orthodox parties out of his coalition and give in to the joint demands of the YeshAtid and BayitYehudi parties, leading to the creation of a center-right government of liberal economic agendas, dedicated to strengthening the middle class and changing the relationship between religion and state.

Yair Lapid, a rising star in Israeli politics whose party won 19 seats out of 120 in the Israeli Knesset, was appointed Minister of the treasury and will manage Israel's economy in the coming years after leading a successful campaign with the slogen "Where is our money?", a huge achivement for the former news anchor and talkshow host.

I can't believe the Persians still fly the F-4. The Predator might have the advantage with Hellfire in a front aspect attack profile. Hell, with that old plane it might win a tail chase too. That would be poetic justice...a drone shooting down an Iranian plane.

You being an Officer and all, probably never had the opportunity to perform "wheels watch" at the end of the runway. At Quonset we had a wagon with red paddles to alert pilots that their wheels weren't down. Visiting A-4's used to come screaming in and were a sight to see as we were mainly prop squadrons.

That's pretty pathetic, getting dirty was never a problem for me. I ran checklists through my head so many times it was second nature, not to mention the guy in back.

For some reason they didn't trust checklists or indicators, hence the need for wheel watchers and a flare gun. Dare you question the intelligence prevelant at the time? They were, after all, OFFICERS! BwaaaaaaaaaHaaaaaa. I did abandon my cart on a couple of mishaps. No wheels up incidents, just props into the concrete and tire blowout kind of things. It was exciting. I loved it. Better than Fire Watches. What are those, you say? BwaaaaaaHaaaaaa

When did you ever get dirty, Commander? Handing somebody your barf bag? Ever scrub a commode? Mop a floor? Drop your pretentious BS. Officers always had somebody to do that for them. And, gladly. Us enlisted peepuls wuz always there to surv. Mo Fo.

You know I was an E-4 in the reserves when I got accepted to ROTC, right? Did boot camp, monthly drills, summer cruises, the whole .5 yards. Ever stand a bilge watch on a mahogany minesweeper? Got buckets?

You're damn right life was better after commissioning.

By getting dirty I meant slowing down and entering the pattern. Flaps, gear, hook...checklist stuff.

Which game is that? I quit playing the topix game a long time ago and no longer seek props but I still play the game of billiards.

Readily accepts orders from senior officers, but balks at orders from junior petty officers. Quick to complain, sharp wit. Too bad it can't be channeled towards positive leadership. A pleasure to work with, as long as things are going well. Ark Ark Ark
