ha-ha-guy: The "helicopter carrier" was built in 1977 by the Royal Navy to refuel ships at sea, its design dates back to the 1960s.  At least it looks like it as a 76mm retrofitted onto it so the Somali pirates can't hijack it.

iheartscotch: studebaker hoch: September 11, 2001.

"Well, the United States doesn't consider Al Queda to be any threat, or they'd have a tighter defense. An analysis of the plans provided by a public records search has demonstrated a weakness in the Twin Towers. But the approach will not be easy. You are required to maneuver straight downtown and skim the buildings to the World Trade Center.  The target area is only two hundred feet wide. It's the upper floors of the towers.  The structural steel is vulnerable to high heat, and the fire insulation is not blast rated.  A precise hit will start a fire which should destroy the buildings. Only a precise hit will set off a chain reaction. The buildings are bomb-hardened, so you'll have to use hijacked airplanes".

200 feet? That's impossible; even for a computer!


I used to bulls-eye Federal Buildings with my C-4 back home, and they aren't much bigger than 200 feet.

America! (fark yeah!)

Seriously, thought, since World War II, the only navies that have been able to engage in blue water combat with each other and survive have been the Russians and the Americans.

The Repeated Meme: Any Farkers able to accurately pinpoint the year America became a nation of girly men?


The usurpation of states' rights and centralization of power in the hands of a cabal of decadent European bankers known as the Bavarian Illuminati through the repeal of the democratic Articles of Confederation and their replacement with the blueprint for authoritarian mind control known as the Constitution.

September 17, 1787.

Infernalist: You're quite right, naturally. The Democrats paid little attention to the Iranians in the election season and rightfully so. They're not a threat to anyone except themselves.


That's like me when I go out and get liquored up and start fights.

Ya know how the US started with Seal Team 1 and 2, and then skipped to naming the next one Team 6 to make everyone else think there were 3 other Seal Teams to worry about?  This is like that.
