Lot’s of memories!
Check out this video on YouTube:
Hello ISIS…I am here to assist your trip to meet Allah
The Global Hawk
Note the mission paintings on the fuselage, It’s actually over 250 missions.
(And I would suppose 25 air medals.)
That’s a long way for a remotely piloted aircraft.
Think of the technology as well as the required quality of the data link to fly it remotely from a source thousands of miles away.
Not only that, but the pilot controls it from a nice warm control panel at Edwards AFB, CA.
It can stay up for almost 2 days at altitudes above 60k feet.
The Global Hawk is controlled via satellite. It flew missions that went from Edwards AFB, CA. and back nonstop.
Basically, they come into the fight at a high mach # using military thrust power, fire their AMRAAMS, and no one ever sees them or paints with radar. There is practically no radio chatter because all the guys in the flight are tied together electronically and can see who is targeting who, and they have AWACS (Airborne Early Warning and Control Systems) direct input, as well as 360° situational awareness from that and other sensors.
The enemy had a definite morale problem before it was all over.
It is to air superiority what the jet engine was to aviation.
It can taxi out, take off, fly a mission, return, land and taxi back on its own. There are no blackouts, pilot fatigue, relief tubes, ejection seats,
and best of all, no dead pilots, and no POWs.
Coming to your neighborhood, soon … Unless we change our laws NOW!!! and make it difficult for them to continue on this FREE RIDE!!!!
The Video Link below takes place in Brussels where NATO headquarters is
located. It *was* a very European wonderful place. Don’t say We haven’t
been warned! If you don’t think this is real…wait a few more years!! Many other Europeans as well as US cities are facing the same situation!
What are we doing about it?? Giving them more visas to immigrate!!
Some pretty sound and realistic thinking here….
As long as we insist on maintaining the “moral high ground” we will NEVER win the war on terrorism. We’re in a conflict in which we absolutely insist in playing by the rules against a maniacal group who has no rules…Rattlesnake Logic
After the Boston bombing, the news media spent days and weeks trying to determine why these men did what they did. They want to know what America did to make these brothers so angry with us. They want to know why these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible. The media is in a tizzy about this new era of homegrown radicals, and about why they could live among us and still hate us.
A friend of mine from Texas explained it all to me:
Here in west Texas, I have rattlesnakes on my place, living among us. I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch. I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch. I have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the driveway. In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I encounter.
I kill rattlesnakes because I know a rattlesnake will bite me and inject me with poison. I don’t stop to wonder why a rattlesnake will bite me; I know it will bite me because it’s a rattlesnake and that’s what rattlesnakes do. I don’t try to reason with a rattlesnake – I just kill it.
I don t try to get to know the rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me. I just kill them. I don’t quiz a rattlesnake to see if I can find out where the other snakes are, because (a) it won’t tell me, and (b) I already know they live on my place. So, I just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one.
I don’t look for ways I might be able to change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake… I just kill it. Oh, and on occasion, I accidentally kill a rat snake because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the time. Also, I know, for every rattlesnake I kill, two more are lurking out there in the brush. In my lifetime I will never be able to rid my place of rattlesnakes. Do I fear them? No!
Do I respect what they can do to me? Yes! And because of that respect, I give them the fair justice they deserve…. I kill them…
Maybe as a country we should start giving more thought to the fact that these jihadists are just like rattlesnakes and act accordingly!
I love this country; it’s the Government I’m afraid of!
