    “The plane may have been American, but are you sure about the bombs?”

    Hey, I flew one of them. Don’t remember seeing her, though.

    My 2nd day in RVN, less than 24 after my arrival, I saw 3 Phantoms about 3 miles away attacking with snakes and napes. It was quite a sight with their steep dives and steep climbs, different than when I had seen them train in the states. One day a couple Phantoms buzzed our mess hall at low level during noon for the sole purpose of scaring the bejesus out of us. It worked, although the pilots may have been celebrating the secondary explosions as the result of their bombing.

    I loved when they would come over slow. They have a roar that I’ll never forget. The A-4’s were great, too. As soon as they got off the ground, they would go into an almost vertical climb. Hit those afterburners.

    familiarity does not always breed contempt

    “We are the world cops. If you don’t like it- tough beans.”
    -
    And yet we didn’t sign on to be cops
    We don’t have a set of laws to enforce
    We don’t have enough cops to police the entire world
    Sometimes our cops don’t follow our own laws
    Being an unpaid cop is expensive
    Most cops don’t shoot the bystanders
    Our chief of police seems disinterested in policework
    The function of cops is not to be judge, jury and executioner, so we are definitely not cops..
    .
    CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?
    asked just fefore they shot another little girl in the head for going to school and our “allies” try to make kissy face with the shooters
    .
    Nah, let the rest of the world police itself, just protect Americans, especially the ones overseas and the ones at home and any others I may have missed

    @bawana
    I guess, you have your “police gear” packed up and are ready to head off to the Ukraine.
    Interestingly, the most effective policemen in Cambodia were the Vietnamese. They ousted the Khmer Rouge and brought to end one the great humanitarian tragedies of the 20th century.

    I bet that bawana’s military record is every bit as distinguished as is Dick Chaney’s.

    This is the problem I have with liberals. You wanted to flag him for saying something you disagree with. I thought liberals were supposed to champion free speech? I though what he said was stupid but not flag worthy. The flags should be thrown for personnel insults or “dirty” post not just because he thinks different from you.

    And of course you and your family are in the military, putting your lives on the line for your beliefs, rather than expecting others to do so. Right?
