well, i guess SAM proficiency has to start somewhere...
2002-12-23 11:41:29 AM  
But if there were survivors, where would you bury them? :)

2002-12-23 11:41:45 AM  
Was it also unwomaned?
2002-12-23 11:42:21 AM  
I win!
2002-12-23 11:42:28 AM  
I saw one of these things at Farborough air show this year. Wierd looking but kinda cool.
2002-12-23 11:42:41 AM  
Good. Now we have a reason to nuke them
2002-12-23 11:42:55 AM  
I believe it was an air to air missile.

I am the only one who is at work and has absolutley nothing to do?
2002-12-23 11:45:11 AM  
For some reason this really makes me want to go skeet shooting.
2002-12-23 11:45:13 AM  
So ... what's the big deal? They've been shooting at our aircraft for the last 10 years. The only news is that they finaly managed to hit one.

Is Harmonia going to start a "drones need love too" campaign?
2002-12-23 11:45:26 AM  
Oh, the non-humanity!
2002-12-23 11:45:41 AM  
But the real question is ...
If there were not any survivors, did the crash make a sound?
2002-12-23 11:45:48 AM  

I'm at work and have lots to do. I just choose to not do it.
2002-12-23 11:45:55 AM  
Must be a slow news day.
2002-12-23 11:46:01 AM  
Great job destroying one of our toys. Maybe next time you'll actually get someone.

Keep practicing!
2002-12-23 11:46:06 AM  
Is this wwIII yet? Who's with us this time around?
2002-12-23 11:46:14 AM  
Why even bother having work this week? Should have declared the whole week a national holiday and be done with it.
2002-12-23 11:46:40 AM  

Nope. I am soo friggen bored right now... At least tomorrow is a half day since the markets close early.
2002-12-23 11:46:58 AM  
It's not like this hasn't happened before.
2002-12-23 11:47:13 AM  

Welcome to the club.
2002-12-23 11:47:27 AM  
If we can't send Unmanned spy planes over the Iraqi no fly zone then the Terrorist have already won....
2002-12-23 11:47:36 AM  
SHUT. .. .up

So did you order the Schneider WEisse? Didja? Didja? :)

/thread hijack

You know, it must be really hard to hit a stationary target with a sam. I mean they just SIT there, circling the same position for hours, how *do* you hit it? /sarcasm
2002-12-23 11:47:37 AM  
Didn't anyone tell them that the airwar starts next month and the ground war in February?

Like my old 1SG used to say, there's always someone who doesn't get the word.
2002-12-23 11:47:46 AM  
Shut........UP:- Nope. Are you working tomorrow too? I'm supposed to come in at 7am and work 'til 1pm. Yeah. That's gonna farking happen.
2002-12-23 11:48:10 AM  

Being at work with nothing to do?
2002-12-23 11:50:18 AM  
People get dumber as you get closer to the holidays, so obviously, I have plenty of work to do....
2002-12-23 11:50:22 AM  
Is this wwIII yet? Who's with us this time around?

You mean you're the US would actually be involved in a war from the beginning instead of sitting out like a bunch of nancies for a couple of years?

/laughs as another thread will be consumed by a US/EU flamewar
2002-12-23 11:50:40 AM  

Its on the way. You're my hero for that link.

Thanks Again.

I have off both tomorrow and christmas, which means today is going to be extra special super long....
2002-12-23 11:50:42 AM  

I have fark-all to do today.

And Fark throws up this boring crap.


Let's pretend "Unmanned Drone" is a military euphamism for SFW boobies pictures.

Anyone got any idea what this "unmanned drone" looks like?

2002-12-23 11:50:45 AM  
Gator8387 - I agree. Thank God lunch is in 10 minutes.

Think bush will use this as his reason for war?
2002-12-23 11:51:12 AM  
It starts like this, next Santa's only got 7 reindeer.
2002-12-23 11:51:16 AM  
This reminds me of a running joke/saying my Mom and I have that's been going on since I was about 5. Everytime we're going somewhere in the car together and one of us sees a bag/misc. piece of trash on the side of the road, we say "Oh, dead bag", like it was a bunny or something.

Yeah. I'm going home now. Happy Holidays to all you suckas that gotta stay at work!
2002-12-23 11:51:17 AM  
I predicted a Christmas invasion a couple weeks ago.

What better time to start the Crusade?
2002-12-23 11:51:53 AM  
Uh oh. This dude is PISSED.

Our thoughts and prayrs go out to the family of unmanned. droids everywhere mourn your loss.
2002-12-23 11:52:13 AM  
Agreed. This day is worthless. We're just sitting around watching the snow. Gonna be a white Christmas in Oklahoma this year (and I'm leaving for Flordia tomorow... hah!)
2002-12-23 11:52:20 AM  
That's it!! Too many bodybags coming home.
US should sue for peace at any price
2002-12-23 11:53:42 AM  
Unpersoned plane, you nazi.
2002-12-23 11:54:51 AM  
Also at work and bored as all, while the wife is asleep at home

I think she needs a wake up call.
2002-12-23 11:55:16 AM  
Material Breach?
2002-12-23 11:55:18 AM  
Folks, please read the article. It was fired upon by an Iraqi aircraft.

This is all part of our psychological warfare; when the Iraqis race to the wreckage to take prisoners, they get so confused by the absence of crew-members that they go crackers and are easily detained.

Also, let's not feed the Trolls.
2002-12-23 11:55:23 AM  
They say it was unmanned, but we all know the pilot was a USAF spider monkey. After all, there was no mention of it being unmonkeyed.

God bless you, spider monkey!
