: : : Where are the big bad Mig jet fighter pilots? Excuse me? Could you speak up?
: : : Oh, yes, of course, I should've known, they don't like real competition, an even match, like a flight of pissed of F-15 Eagles just itching to splash 'em.
: : *By your own article's admission, they were "F-16's" you incredible waste of skin. So, Cuba scrambled a couple Migs, but that's not enough for you 'armchair militarists.' Had that idiot in the Cessna or US / Cuban military pilots been shot down, it's all great 'blame Fidel' fare so far as the rightwing loons are concerned. --K
: $$$$$$$$$$$$$'Waste of skin'? Hope your not thinking of lampshades, there are some on the Left who saw opportunity in the strangest places.
: I wish I knew how to respond to your drivel.
: Hey! Wait a second! I'm not the arm chair militarist! Castro's boys are the ones who shot down two unarmed aircraft, not me! Are you defending that? Is that what your saying? And while I'm at it, I also disapprove of the slaughter in Chechnya.
: (Sorry, I thought they were F-15', but if you say they were F-16's, all I can say is mea culpa)
*Wow. So you're against Russians killing Chechens but all for Americans killing Cubans? *This* is your claim to consistency? As for me... (since you seem to be singularly incapable of defending your own opinions in any other terms than to ascribe similiar odious motives to your ideological opponent du jour) once again, I'm not the one salivating over the prospect of downed aircraft, you are. When I start posting my glee over the prospect of blasting aircraft from the sky, then you may rightly criticise me for same. Until then, the title of "Vice Air Admiral of the La-Z-Boy" goes to you partner.
As for your 'lampshade' taunt... I always knew you weren't the sharpest tool in the shed. I can in all honesty say that the idea of turning human skin into lampshades never crossed my mind. Since it seems to be a morbid preoccupation with you, may I suggest psychological counseling?* --K
