Yes, along with television & radio.

BTW, if I were to use a British newspaper to support any rational and informed argument, the News of The World would not be the one I chose!
As an example, just have a look at that article: It claims that America's arsenal includes Tornados.

The article is full of innacuracies (GBU28 "missile", a pic of a Harrier with "Tornado" written next to it etc.) I wouldn't trust the info about the super-rifle and all that other stuff.

I know nothing about "News of the World" -- but the point I was making is that lately the terrorists and some countries have been making threats against the US saying "we have fire power too, so don't try to scare us". Well, they might, but we have a lot more. And I think it is stupid to try to threaten us with weapons as that is not a threat, but an irritant to make our government more angry. Now a few of the things such a lasers on 747's will obviously not be used, but the planes, torpedoes, and missiles in the article are right on and we will use them. Just to clear up my point. Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Regardless of the inaccuracies of the article, it DOES show one thing. I don't care who you are, if you mess with the U.S., you are gonna get your ass whooped REAL GOOD. I never will understand why countries (especially middle-east ones) keep provoking the U.S. What are these morons thinking??? Iraq still hasn't learned their lesson, hopefully we will take care of them during this operation as well.

Most people in Afganistan do not speak English so you are wasting your time.

Ukair, I didn't mean for them to read this very article, come on. I am just saying the people and their goverment need to be educated about our military before they continue with their big mouths that seem to think we can't do anything.
