Stupid.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

That explains it. bananadance


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

The average naval aviator, despite the sometimes swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy, and caring. These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

Why is the Business Insider carrying articles about modern military jet aircraft?

This "expert" Lockie...hmmm, rhymes with Lackey.

That certainly propels him into the realm of advanced aviation expertise. rolleyes

He should drop a line to Putin telling him they have it all wrong on the SU-57 with it's internal weapons bays.

Geez, don't they know anything.

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

What a goofy mess of an article.

Most regular folks I would think who aren't even military aviation experts know that if an F-22 shows up on your wing it means business and that it can take care of business.

Yes, well, you see...the Russians don't know anything about U.S. aircraft. When the F-22 pulls up next to them and says, "Turn back or we will shoot you down!" the Russian answers, laughing. "With what, you stupid Amerikanski? We can see you carry no weapons! Ha...we fart in your general direction!"

And there is more than one F-22.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.

What gets me the most about this is that a casual reader will read this and believe it as truth.
