Does "send in some pilots to get shot down and then cry victim" fit, Smitty?

Circusdog320: Drones are like WTF?


Honestly? An drone can pull as just about many Gs as the airframe is capable of pulling and much more than any squishy human. NOT TO MENTION that even at $120 mill a drone..it is LESS expensive than a F-35.

Keep kicking out the threats Vlad. That's how we know you're paying attention.

I expect this to happen until he reaches a point where escalating isn't worth the price of Ukraine. To be fair, it's a high price and might take us to threats of nuclear weaponry but they'll only be threats.

Hmm, wonder if we're going to reach mid-1990s levels of hearing the term "no fly zone" on the national news again.

No, really, I wonder how many missile silo techs in Russia are saying "you have not been paying maintenance checks for thirty years.  The plutonium was sold twenty years ago.  This is all just rat droppings, paint, and spit.  Not so much paint."

Not going to lie, I'm looking forward to the release of Top Gun 2.

I wonder how many people joined the navy because of that movie?

This year happened, 2020.
Everything changed.  Everything.

No boom today. Boom tomorrow.  There's always a boom tomorrow.  What?  Look, somebody's got to have some damn perspective around here!  Boom.  Sooner or later.  BOOM!

Well on the plus side I won't have to pay off that mortgage anymore.

Actually I am hoping for a little of the cyber from the Russians as to wipe out banking records. Then we can go all medieval on their butts.

It'll be the first war started by inverted road trip backseat rules.

Ru: You're not touching me
Ua: no, you're not touching me!
...and so on, until they start hitting each other.

At which time the other children join in and beat the sh*t out of Russia, then leave them inside a phonebooth in the middle of Ohio.

Excepting the whole part about Ru already taking a part of Ua's seat, and then claiming everyone else is sitting too close to them whilst not liking them at all.

Excuse me, replace "not liking" with "joining another team AND not liking Ru at all."

I can't remember where I saw it, but the statement was something to the effect that Top Gun was the #1 recruitment tool - to this day.

All that time in Basic Training training to fight the Russians, and I spend my career in Iraq and Afghanistan. I guess if the Army needs an old man who can probably still fumble his way into 90's era MOPP gear, they know my number.

I absolutely would. Unfortunately, after my injury in Afghanistan, the Army in its infinite wisdom decided it would be best if my fighting days were done. If it were up to me, I'd still be in, and I'd be the first one on the plane.
