The slippery slope... and Sailors at Risk at Sea!

The real reason AF fighter jocks are worried about being diverted to fly UAVs... it's just the first step on a slippery cost-saving slope as Reid and Pelosi seek ways to fund their dreams. f16.jpg

In other news, Julian Assange gets a two-fer for Wikileaks with this photograph - which clearly shows both young sailors at Risk, *and* proof positive that the US military is planning for World Domination.

Geez, even the Thunderbirds have been downsized...
 
Reminds me of NASA's "better, faster, cheaper" under Dan Goldin in the Clinton administration.  Of course, the correct ending to that was "pick any two of the three."
 
Well, the rape charge against Assange seems trumped up, because he annoyed some important people.

The latest leaks do seem  to confirm everybody's suspicions about what everybody thinks about everybody else.

  I think Mr. Assange might be a bit shy about going after the Russkies, though.  Those guys play hardball.  "A little Polonium 210 in yer coffee, Julian?"
 
If Assange didn't have anything to do with attacking or raping a woman, why is he in hiding? 
 
'Cause he pissed off Hills?
 
But Skip:

He's been in hiding since WAY before then.
 
typical squids, not one of them has seized Australia and bunkered up Indonesia!!
 
But, Bill, it's better than what happened to the Silver Eagles back in the 70s.
 
It seems to me that the gentleman in the lead...erm...plane? bears a resemblance to Bill. But that might just be me and my tequila-addled memory. :D


 
Nah. My mustache is lighter.

And I'm more intimidating...
 
I've seen a similar "plane" to those F-16's made to look like an F-111

I think they still have it at Pease in NH and pull it out for airshows.
 
Bill's mustache is also MUCH NICER :o)
 
The Baroness is *such* a groupie...
 
 ... intimidating ... intimating ... imitating ... intitulating ... just words:
