International diplomacy is how nations screw each other over. This is not the first time, and won't be the last time these things happen. France has always been a dark horse in arms sales. Sometimes you're the pigeon, sometimes you're the statue.Jump to post
I think this thread is going to be locked soon. My last comment: I think that many here are blinded by their hatred for Trump and THEREFORE condone the action of Milley. Had Milley done his deed last week under Biden, I bet that we would have had a completely different discussion. Absolutely. Movin...Jump to post
Contempt is also difficult to prove without an extensive written record or contemporaneous accounts of arguments of personal nature unrelated to work.

Lately, the ones taking potshots at minorities are liberals. Look at the lady throwing an egg at Larry Elder in LA. Where is the outrage? Crickets. Only because Elder is a conservative.

I wish Airbus would follow with a comprehensive process index like Boeing has. Airbus repair/overhaul processes are a joke, like cadmium plating for example.

For me it is tolerable, for the moment. They don't seem to realize that morale is indeed falling; they seem to think their policies on family have an effect on the employees.

They say that sometimes nepotism can be a good thing. I have not seen one good thing come out of nepotism that doesn't benefit the family/friend.

However they have won the hearts and minds of those that they would control for now. They don't win hearts and minds; they crush any opposition. You submit to their authority, and that's it.

The B-58 used welded steel honeycomb panels that must have been a cast-iron pain to maintain. The B-58 while a maintenance black hole, was a technological marvel for its time. Same goes for the XB-70. But the maintenance costs, along with its high accident rate were reasons for its removal.Jump to post
Back to the relevant issue, why are straw purchases so prevalent? Because there are so many get out holes it's impossible to enforce. I don't even know what this means. Try again.

No one in the chain of command of those guns follow gun laws--several of them thanks to the gun lobby making it near impossible to enforce existing laws.

I 100% think you should be prosecuted if your gun got stolen because you were not taking gun security seriously. And if that gun gets used in a crime, you bear some responsibility. Treading in dangerous waters? Really? Don't you think a innocent kid walking down the street in the south side of Chic...Jump to post
So here's the plan. Like I said before, if your gun gets stolen and used to commit a crime, you can be investigated for that crime too. How did that gun get stolen? Did you not have it secured properly? Was it not locked away? Maybe if you just left your gun laying around or left it on the passenge...Jump to post
Anyway, how are that many guns getting stolen? I thought the point of having a gun was that you could protect yourself from getting robbed.

Make it a requirement to register that gun with the purchaser. Then you can hold that person at least partially responsible for any crime committed with that gun. That is not the way it works. Many legally obtained guns are stolen and end up the hands of people that shouldn't have them. Here's a no...Jump to post

777 has less composites in it by percentage of weight compared to the A310/320/330/380 Using the A320 as an example, have you ever seen the leading edge section for the horizontal stabilizer?

The narrator can be a bit annoying, but recent footage which does illustrate initial damage images.
There are other factors---movement, color of skin, size of the blood puddle, where the holes are in the body, etc. Some of those can give an indication that a person MAY be dead. Heck, even if he checked vitals, that only indicates that a person is currently clinically dead. People can be revived. ...Jump to post
