The crime was using terrorism and 9/11 as pretext to the public when any of the factors you describe would have been taken more seriously. Would they, though?

Besides, he tried once to invade and control the Saudi and Kuwaiti oil fields. If he succeeded in a second attempt, he’d had the world by the neck. And he hadn't even come close to rebuilding his military from the first time he tried. Anyway, the alternative was pretty obvious - don't invade Iraq. ...Jump to post

A ghastly crime of opportunism and probably the greatest foreign policy blunder of my lifetime, at least as far as the United States is concerned. The evil done in my name wasn't even done competently. And then the Republicans tried to pass the buck, as they always do.Jump to post

Yes, but even if they do that, the decision to charge Trump first is sort of improper. That’s not how “prosecuting” is supposed to work. It is another sign of creeping “banana republic” status, where opposing parties jail/hospitalize each other. Isn't the president being effectively outside the rea...Jump to post
Here’s the problem with this. Real estate developers and family business owners commonly do everything Trump did. The charges against him were common tax dodging schemes.

I worry - that if you villainize a group enough, that if you scream that they are groomers wanting to hurt children loud enough - that it will eventually result in real harm being undertaken against the group. This is already happening, e.g. the Pulse nightclub shooting and other individual acts of...Jump to post

Look, it's very important that the state of South Carolina be able to prosecute 12-year-old girls raped by their fathers should they miscarry under suspicious circumstances. To protect innocent life, you see.
Not saying that they will, of course. Just that they should be able to. Just in case.
I enjoyed getting a tour of the 19th-century sailing ship on Hyde Street Pier, but I'm a bit of a grognard so YMMV. The Nike surface-to-air missile site on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge is supposed to be very cool, but limited hours, so I haven't made it there yet.Jump to post

In WWII, almost every fighter pilot and bomber crew member flew on a mask in an uncompressed cabin. If you were not doing ASW or CAS, you were at altitude using a mask. For German pilots, days per week for years. Some of them went quite high. Some Bf-109s did have pressurized cockpits I believe. Bu...Jump to post
It was always going to be Big Shot, because they already have one identical aircraft (and 2 747s). Glad they're expanding! It's an amazing reactivation after such a long time stored.

I believe Nellis does get military charters from time to time, and Southwest is a part of that program even though you don't see them quite as often as National, Atlas, and company. Last year I got a National 747 outbound from Nellis in between Red Flag sorties. There aren't nearly as many of them a...Jump to post

Airbus calls this new door arrangement the Airbus cabin flex option (ACF). IIRC there are late build ceos with ACF and possibly neos with the older door layout?
