16 Coincidental to the Hillary Clinton link up there...

So hippy dippy coworker was going on about Hillary Clinton this morning. She was saying that it just proves how misogynist the world is because Clinton is just not getting a fair shake. She worked her butt off for years and years but no one is giving her a chance, even though she had all these accomplishments.

She even said "if it were a man he'd be elected King of the world by now. But let a woman try to get ahead and all the knives come out."

This is what we are up against, folks.

One A-10A took a hit that shattered two of the three wing spars and safely regained to base. Fairchild-Republic only designed the A-10 to lose one spar and return. That A-10A was later repaired and flew again.

I think a few Joo EMP's above the appropriate Iranian cities would cause the regime to crumble like a wet falafel.

It might come to that in the next 2 years if Israel has no alternative. Getting the bomb is one thing. Weaponizing it into a warhead is another.

44 The biggest problem with Iran getting the bomb is that they'd be utterly secure because no one topples a nuclear power, and that they'd begin to carry increased weight to dominate in the region. Whether or not they would deploy them, that would be the everyday result.

Add the fact that they've operated for years with proxy forces throughout the region, delivering a bomb wouldn't necessarily require a missile.

Question for anyone in the know. Regarding a nuke blast. Lets say a the mullahs launch a medium range nuke missile at Tel Aviv. It is intercepted shortly after launch. What altitude would it have to be for the blast not to effect the launch site?

Good question, and of course the funding to operate and maintain them should be clawed out of the Air Force's budget. Of course, the personnel would have to be transferred to their new service also, and the Air Force wouldn't need the money to pay for them anymore either.

While we're taking things away, we should ask them if there's any other competencies that they don't like and would like to surrender to other services, all of whom would be happy to receive the extra funding...
