Mike Chewbacca: Brick-House: This is about as no-win a situation as Obummer could get. No matter what he does, he's fuked in the eyes of the voter because he has had nearly 4 years to do something about this, but all he did was show weakness. So Iran is feeling froggy and I expect Egypt to jump into the game one the shooting starts.

And Obummer said that muslims would start to like us if he got elected. HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa. What a joke we have for a president.

Obama is so weak, he let Bin Laden hide in Pakistan for 7 years and never really thought about him. Oh wait, no, that was Bush. Yeah, Obama's really weak on terrorists. That's why they're attacking embassies in their own countries and not flying planes into buildings.


To answer this, Im going to do what Obummer usually does and Blame Bush. Because all he did was use the intel that Bush got from waterboarding those guys we caught. So, OBL being dead is all W's fault.

Girion47: My company developed a retraction crane for the minesweeper unit towed behind helicopters. I can't remember specifics, but we made the crane work on a helicopter that uses 30% of the fuel the one the Navy was using.


And why do we care, trollerio?

intelligent comment below: That's funny since they have one of the fastest growing economies in the world and the highest birth rates. Care to retract your boring accusation?


And in order to have a fast-growing economy you usually need to start from nothing. See China, India, etc. Sorry, but Israel is just a bully that feeds on insecurity.

Tyranicle: intelligent comment below: bunner: Who says we let these two theocracies, that have been fighting over the same God forsaken stinking desert since forever, just kill each other off and we use the money for bills?


Israel is a theocracy? You're comparing it to Iran? Could you be any more ignorant?

Besides, Israel would wipe the Iranian military off the map.

Jew, if 'Israel could wipe Iran off the map', where do the Americans come in? Why is it our responsibility?


Jew, if Israel couldn't, why would they have won every war they fought without the need for US personnel?

styckx: Pretty sure I've read this same exact conspiracy theory numerous times in the course of the past 3 years.

longer than that. I recall it prior to the 2008 elections. Bush was going to use the excuse to suspend the elections...
ROTFLMAO Some tinfoil wrapped r-tards at democrat underground squabbling about conspiracy theories does not make it a fact.

The ONLY party whose members have called for suspending elections is...... not bush's
N.C. Gov. Perdue: "Suspend elections"

pacified

my favorite is the right wing hate of knowledge and science,

Yup the RIGHT hates science that's why
Ombama cut nasa while conservatives called for funding.

Jews make up between two to three percent of the American population. However, there are more jews in America than Israel. Roughly six million reside here while five million reside there.

malaktaus: So I assume you're in the military, then? I only ask because I was in the Army and I got shot fighting Muslims for no good reason, and it seems like whenever I hear sentiments like yours the person expressing them is a fat, balding middle-aged dimwit, a middle manager type, who wanted to serve in the military, honest to god, but it just didn't work out for some reason, imagine that.


6 years. 4 on submarines. fark off with your generalities. We aren't fixing ANYTHING by starting a farking world nuclear war.

You sound like a lying, never did shiat but breathe my air, dimwit. I don't believe you got shot. I don't believe you did shiat but biatch and moan.

Even then, been a long time since fluid dynamics but I don't think you could output enough thrust with just 4 fans, I think you would need to have a turbojet setup with turbine after turbine increasing the thrust. I think a fan has a peak efficiency before you start to loose thrust as you increase rotation rate.

Why don't we take all the Jews out of Israel and relocate them to Florida with the rest? Totally seems like a win-win. I mean, we put them back there (the middle east) in the first place, we can take'em back out, right?

Look up what the Zionists are. Basically there is a large portion of the US population that thinks the Jews have to occupy Israel in order for Jesus to return. This is why some many in the GOP freak out when politicians don't support Israel as they see it being tantamount to not supporting Jesus.

Modern Zionism is like dominionism for Jews. It's thankfully more specific and limited to one very small region of the planet, but it still sucks.

Science_Guy_3.14159: meyerkev: jtown: talkertopc: I read it as "An armada of US and British naval power is missing in the Persian Gulf" the first time. I just finished reading the Axis of Time trilogy so that might explain it.

I thought the same thing and I have no idea what the Axis of Time trilogy is so that may not explain it.

Short version:

In an alternate 2021, a UN carrier group goes missing off Indonesia, and pops up in 1942 just prior to the Battle of Midway, and accidentally wipes out the US Pacific fleet upon arrival. Some scatter also hands Hitler, Yamamoto, and Stalin bits and pieces of "uptime" technology. Mostly deals with culture differences (racism), implications of limited tech transfer, and what happens when (among other things) Stalin gets advance word of the Cold War in 1942, when he can actually do something about it.

/Also, it was written not too long after 9/11, so there are references to the whole "War against Islam" thing getting really, really nasty.

That movie had so much potential but ultimately sucked ass. This is definitely a movie that needs a remake, but needs to be done right.
