Typical Military Provoking/playing Around ..

Tue Mar 11, 2003 8:33 pm

Incidents we see now happening around Korea & the Gulf have been happening for decades.

IMO it's part of the military macho culture.

"Four days [after the flyovers], the Russian intelligence agency e-mailed the CO of the Kitty Hawk and enclosed pictures they had taken of dudes scrambling around the flight deck, trying to get airborne," the witness explained.


Pls read about this amusing incident ...

Are there more known articles/pictures of these incidents ?
