    Wasn't it just last week when we hollered and jeered at how lousy Libyan pilots were when they missed the bomb target by miles? At least their planes didn't get shot down.

    Well, fortunately, those US pilots ejected safely.
  2. man so much fighting all over...
  3. Why do we need combat pilots? Can't we light their skys up with unmanned bombers? Let our men sit in simulators in the hangars of Oklahoma?
  4. why is this a big deal?

    we will print more money or issue more bonds

    It is free money, USA will never bankrupt due to war expenses as long as investors all around the world believes USD has value

    That is the key point
  5. it will turn into a big deal if any pilots get captured alive...this will turn from a "no fly zone" mission to who knows.
  6. A new place everyday...

    Bukowski may have said it best...

    the crunch (2)

    "...armies running through streets of pain
    waving wine bottles
    bayoneting and fucking everyone

    or an old guy in a cheap quiet room
    with a photograph of Marilyn Monroe.

    there is a loneliness in this world so great
    that you can see it in the slow movement of
    a clock’s hands.

    there is a loneliness in this world so great
    that you can see it in blinking neon
    in Vegas, in Baltimore, in Munich.

    people are tired
    strafed by life
    mutilated either by love or no

    we don’t need new governments
    new revolutions
    we don’t need new men
    new women
    we don’t need new ways
    we just need to care.

    people are not good to each other
    one on one.
    people are just not good to each other.

    we are afraid.
    we think that hatred signifies
    that punishment is

    what we need is less false education
    what we need are fewer rules
    fewer police
    and more good teachers...."
