Control the skies bitches!
How many passangers can an F-18 take on board ?
I wasn't a math major but I think the answer is zero. Unless you have Dr. Strangelove like ability to hold onto ordnance.
Get your references straight - Dr. Strangelove might have loved the bomb but it was Major Kong who saddled one up. What a frickin' masterpiece.
Ah, Slim Pickens. Dr. Strangelove & Treasure Island. One of the best entertainers, ever.
Zero, none, zip......
Wonder if it's planes covering civilian aircraft.
I believe the F-18 is full of 7 gram rocks and too busy winning to care.
I'm an F-18, BRO, I will destroy you in the sky and deploy my ordinance.
Computer: "Bomb #20, you're outside the bomb bay again!"
Bomb #20: "But I received a signal to deploy!"
Computer: "That signal was an error, please return to the bomb bay."
Bomb #20: "Okay, but this is the last time!" -- Dark Star
this should help extend the market rally....because...well...just because.
That is hilarious alien.
When brown people die, it's bullish for the "markets" Has always been the case.
Tragi-comic madness. Double Speak Senselessness.
But this too is as per script. Dates are important. And tomorrow or next monday is not the date. remember the Iraq war was launched on March 20th?
Ponder that for a bit.
aren't the protests in Saudi Arabia also scheduled for March 20?
yup. Days of Anger everywhere.
Also happens to be Prince Soon to be King William's birthday. I wonder what present grandma has in store for him.
everywhere except America. no anger here...we got i-pads and Charlie Sheen a plenty.
I predict a charlie sheen app on your iPad in the near future.
March 11 is what I saw.
yes, i would like to know more about important dates
Here's one: When's the zionist holiday of Purim this year? It's usually in March and the zionists tend to get agressive to celebrate evidently.
*Yawn* I'm going back to my distraction of Red Dead Redemption, wake me when thy torch the oil, or we invade...
Console weinie. ;)
The release says Obama is authorizing the use of US airplanes to move Egyptians back to Egypt (who fled to the Libyan border). I would think that the flow of people from Egypt to Libya is pretty much over by now anyway given the whole frying pan/fire thing. http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/03/03/libya-usa-obama-idUSWEN894520110303
"First of all the liquidity bombs (were) just to frighten them into buying the fucking dip," said Brian Sack, lead intern at the FRBNY, regarding POMO on www.bloomberg.gov.
U.S. operatives have been on the ground for weeks. watch as the MSM paints this as "humanitarian".
just to frighten them...
HOW WRONG WHERE WE BY NOT BELIEVING THEM!!
I HEREBY NAME KADAFI THE NEW NOBEL PRICE WINNER 2011!!
now carpet bomb every known house of that family and take over the country.
This easily tops the earlier comedy peak today when Hellenic Railways, 100% state owned wink wink, said they missed a coupon payment on a yen denominated bond because of "human error". At least it wasn't the weather...
To paraphrase George Carlin, how dare the Libyans bomb anyone/anything! Don't they know that's the US' job??
how many innocents die while mr obama fiddles
"Bring Bush! Make a no fly zone, bomb the planes," shouted soldier-turned-rebel Nasr Ali, referring to a no-fly zone imposed on Iraq in 1991 by then U.S. President George Bush."
I have to ask, who is paying for the bombs and the fuel? Certainly, it can't be the United States, they are broke, right?
Using bombs just to frighten is not unusual when you are fighting friends.
We started the war against Noriega in panama.by exploding a 1000 bomb fired from a stealth plane. Instead of hitting troop barracks the bomb was intentionally fired at a field between barracks.
Khadaffy's bomb landing in front of the university does sound more like a warning. No casualties were noted in the reports.
As far back as the mid-80s, I read an article that listed the 31 spellings of the name Gaddafi then in use in the English language media. I wonder how many spellings we are up now?
Only one spelling matters... T-O-A-S-T
Good one Sarah Cawna.
The rumor is that the jets are actually Serbian. Strange I know, but must be that the regime saw how the Egyptian army acted and decided it was prudent to outsource. There is evidence that the regime brought in ground forces from Chad as well, black Africans with hard-core urban combat experience.
If it really is the Serbs flying as mercs, then there is no way in fucking Hell they are willing to go up against US fighters, and are already on their way home. It was fun while it lasted, don't forget to pay us in gold m'kay?
The Libyan air force command is largely gone. Some went to Malta. Some defected. They probably cannot launch a credible wing of fighters once the Serbs are out of the picture.
When it comes to firepower, it really does not matter who we are up against, given the latest crap we are flying there is no real match to our Super-Hornets and dog fighting skills! Its just the usual show me yours and I'll show you mine!
Oil will go higher because it's IN right now, weather they torch the fields or not! Iraq was nice, this on is better, SA will be GREAT!
It's almost like a fixed prize fight at this point. We'll all watch, but the outcome is determined.
Including the $150/bbl oil. Though how the economy survives much of that I would really like to know.
Are you making these rumors up yourself?
Propaganda is the most tried job in the Western world. Many want to make a living off it, very few are elected.
Nope! And the Serbian leadership came out on Serb TV and denied everything, which means it's all likely true.
Yeah, you can't believe a word the Serbian leadership says but maybe it was actually the Slovenian Air Force that Gadaffi called in.
If Mr. Obama tries to engage militarily in Libya, Russia and China will be dragged into this conflict. One has to wonder why Mr. Obama does not try a diplomatic option before turning to the questionable use of force.
scare them.....to death!
Oil at $101pb and the "stock markets" are up 2%? That's the signal the markets are broken.
Obviously Gadaffi needs a new PR person, hmmm...hey Helen Thomas is available, right?
Zionist filth, I junked you.
borrow money to buy fuel for planes.
borrow money to pay the pilots..
