<i>A beam is send out below the Aircraft,strikes the surface & returns,The time spent is calculated to detrmine the Height.</i> Wrong.

OK...let me get this straight. My last attempt got deleted. "Guns don't kill people, Liberals who don't own guns kill people."

I don't think it crosses the line. Its true. There are people who are out to hurt the US and its people and its healthy to stimulate discussion about why.

Although I like the fact that we won, it was the most boring game in the most boring tournement ever!
Technology has removed the navigator, flight engineer and radio operator seat from aircraft even though the operational capabilities have increased dramatically.
Its only a matter of time before we see single operator aircraft where a caretaker supervises the airplane's operation.

There are a lot of silly parallels being drawn here. First of all, it shouldn't matter what faith these people are. Why should we take ownership of something based on faith?
