Posted in: U.N. votes to recognize state of Palestine See in context

Awesome! So now that the UN recognizes "Palestine" as a state, anything this state does they should be held accountable for. When the next rocket that launches towards Israel is an official declaration of war, and should be dealt with with to the full extent of Israels ablility. WITH the UN's blessing and support!

If he was going to scratch cars, why in a parking lot? Go scratch the cars that punks parked on the side of the street. Ha!

basroil - There are 8mm airsoft guns (6mm is the norm), but I've only seen plastic bbs for the 8mm guns. I'm sure there may be metal ones out there, though. Either way I'm sure the police would be able to tell if this was a bullet or a metal bb.

Tom - It's possible, but the news article doesn't specify. It just said he was arrested on Sunday, not that the incident happened on Sunday. If you have some personal knowledge though, please let us know.

Very interesting. I heard about this at lunch (on Yokosuka Base) last Wednesday, but couldn't find anything on it on any news sites. When I couldn't find anything on it, I figured it was just crap from the rumor mill. I wonder if the fact that this punk was an officer had anything to do with how long it took the news to break? As far as this being some kind of setup, I don't buy it. Even if it was, do you regularly just go walking into people houses? And don't try to tell me this is some kind of cultural difference. If this drunk idiot when barging into a strangers house in the U.S. he probably would have been shot.

Posted in: Commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan dragged into Petraeus sex scandal See in context

AKBFAN has hit the nail on the head exactly! Petraeus married the daughter of the General running West Point while he was there. Marrying the Generals daughter had nothing to do with this no load being pushed up the ranks his whole career, did it? He actually made it all the way up to Brigadier General before he was ever in a combat zone in 2003. Is anybody stupid enought to believe that a General is going to be anywhere NEAR combat?

I think part of the problem is that most civillians will never understand just how much power a flag officer (or even just a unit CO) actually holds over his/her command. Hell, a straight from bootcamp E-1 is held to a higher standard that civillians, try to imagine the standard a General is supposed to uphold and enforce. Unfortunately, no load, yes men (or women!) get promoted up the ranks until they mess up big enough that it can't be covered up anymore. You want examples? Try looking up how many COs have been relieved of command in the last couple of years. Discraceful.

I don't know where the hell you people work, but where I work, maternaty leave is almost a full year. And I know two women that got knocked up twice in a row, and were out for 2 years. Yeah, that didn't cause any problems for the people left picking up two years of slack.

Everybody is assuming that the robber would actually be hit by one of these dye balls. Most of the people I've seen working at McDonalds here are young women. I don't imagine they are going to be very accurate, especially when they're scared.

fds - I'm guessing that he did have a sword, but it was most likely one of those cheap decoration swords. From what I've read, those things are very poorly made and the blade can come flying out if you swing it around a lot or actually hit something with it.

Interesting. Not that I travel with anything really valuable, but I never carried around any receipts or proof of purchase for anything (unless I just bought it at the airport). I wonder what they plan on doing with the violin if she doesn't pay up. Where are they planning on keeping the violin? Are they going to be held responsible if anything happens to the violin while it's in thier possesion?

Elbuda Mexicano - You have no idea what they hell you are talking about. Again, OPSEC is OPERATIONAL SECURITY. These guys are trying to tell secrets, they are saying that Obama is the one releasing secret information for his own political gain. You wonder why Bin Laden wasn't killed during Bush's presidency? Good question! The answer is that he spent 8 years rebuilding HUMINT. Clinton DECIMATED the intelligence community. And after Bush rebuilt it, Obama got to reap the rewards. End of story. And judging by that lame picture of Obama and Co watching the operation, Obama's invitation to the viewing was an afterthought. Look at it. He's sitting off to the side, he didn't even have a seat at the table. This was the most important operation of the War on Terror, and he's just sitting off to the side? Oh yeah, he did it all! Guess he forgot all about that we made his "you didn't build that" speech.

I do agree with you that Saudi Arabia should be considered an enemy. And there's no doubt that thier oil is the reason they are "allies." But I have no issue with going after Iraq. We KNOW Saddam had WMDs, he used them on the Kurds. What's you arguement for this? They already used them all and didn't have any left?

globalwatcher - YuriOtani is correct. Ex-military should not divulge classified information they had access to when they were active, that is what OPSEC (Operational Security) is. Ex-military giving thier opinion or speaking up about leaks is not a breach of OPSEC, that is maintaining OPSEC. General Dempsey should keep his loser mouth shut, he was APPOINTED by the president. So you honestly think he's going to agree with ANYBODY that says anything against the person that gave him is high ranking position? He doesn't think backing the person that appointed him is partisan politics?

Posted in: Okinawa governor demands tighter discipline from U.S. military personnel See in context

I've seen coverups myself at the commands I've worked at. The thing is, it's not done to protect the jackass that did whatever it was, it was to protect the command/service from "embarrassment." The sad thing is that these idiots in charge don't realize that THEY are the embarrassment to the service for trying to cover up crimes. Don't get me wrong, I love the military and support it. And the number of criminals is a very small percentage, just like in any group of people. I just wish that the people that commit the crimes were really punished, and the punishment should not involve everybody from the base.

That's pretty funny. I have an umbrella with a sword hilt for a handle. A friend got it for me for Christmas last year. But there's no way you'd confuse the umbrella sticking out of the hilt for a blade. Ha!

Frank Vaughn - You claim to be former U.S. Coast Guard. Tell us what the U.S. Coast Guard would do if some nutbob "activist" tried fouling thier props, threw jars of chemicals, buzzed them with helos, or flew UAVs at them? I didn't ask what they would do if a ship made to ram them, because we know damn well what the result would be, don't we?

Posted in: Feuding Gallagher brothers to share rock bill at Fuji Rock festival See in context

Vernie Jeffries - Last year Gallagher came to the base to do a USO show, and I saw him at one of the base clubs about to eat lunch (I was waiting for my take out order). When I recognized him, I smiled at him and started to say "hi", but he just looked away and walked by with the person talking him around the base. But I wondered if that was the "real" Gallagher or if it was his brother. Ha!

Then when I saw this headline I thought he had set up some shows while he was here last year.

Posted in: Sea Shepherd founder Watson skips bail in Germany over Japan extradition fear See in context

2020hindsight - You may have solved the problem! Your inablity to distinguish the difference between a criminal and law abiding citizen explains why you would support criminals and thier criminal actions. Once you understand that a criminal is somebody that breaks the law, you will hopefully understand that if you don't break the law you are not a criminal. Whether you agree with the law(s) has nothing to do with it.

Posted in: Sea Shepherd founder Watson skips bail in Germany over Japan extradition fear See in context

AnimuX & canadianbento - Your treehugging agenda does not dictate whether a CRIMINAL's actions are criminal. The criminal's actions that break the law are what dictates whether he/she is a criminal. And don't forget that your twisted sense of "morality" has nothing to do with standing laws. It doesn't matter if you think killing whales is wrong, the whalers are acting within the law. The fact that you don't agree with the law or "loopholes" as you see it, doesn't change the fact that the whalers are acting within the law. If you feel that strongly about it, you need to work to change the laws to what you think they should be. The reason normal people have no respect for you or the idiot sheep that support the "Sea Shepherd", is because the "Sea Shepherd" is who is breaking the law. If I followed your car on the highway and threw glass botlles at you and tried to lock your wheels up with chains, would you expect the police to arrest me? Or I would I just be causing "civil disobedience"?

Posted in: U.S. defense chief approves plan to lift F-22 limits; OKs deployment to Kadena See in context

basroil - Thanks for the link! Maybe the chemical warfare filter is where the chemicals were getting into the pilots' bloodstream. I just remember that because the article I read said that part of what started concerns was that the pilots seemed to be drunk. And after testing they found something in thier blood. And they figured that it came from some kind of leak in the oxygen system. I also read that they were talking/working with old U-2 pilots about it, because they had the same problem a long time ago. I was just shocked to see an article in the Stars & Stripes about some pilots refusing to fly the F-22 anymore, and some General saying he was going to start flying it to try to see if there really is a problem.

I had no idea that g-suits fill up under normal low g flight at high altitudes. But because they are designed to squeeze your legs to keep your blood in your upper body, I don't see how it would cause hypoxia. I guess if this new g-suit also has a vest it could be possible, but I would think the pilots would be aware of it constantly squeezing thier chests.

It will be interesting to see what kind of new equipment or safety features will be designed in the future to go along with high performance aircraft to keep pilots awake/alive.

basroil - So the official reason for the oxygen issues is that it was a g-suit problem? Interesting. I hope that is really the problem and they have fixed it. The articles I was reading said that there were pilots that didn't trust the plane anymore, and it seemed like everybody thought it was a problem with the oxygen system. Something like antifreeze was somehow getting into the oxygen system. But all new aircraft have bugs that need to be worked out.
