Friend of Foe?" During the heat of a dog fight, you must recognize "friend or foe?"
One day, an officer came and assigned Isadore's unit the following task:
American fighter pilots were shooting down their comrades because in the heat of battle, against bright sky background, sunglare, etc. they could not easily distinguish in combat the "Star-in-Circle" marking on American planes (above and right) from the circle marking ("Rising sun", aka "Meatball") on Japanese planes (right).
Assignment: Design a new marking for American fighter planes that pilots could easily distinguish from the Japanese marking, to reduce losses to "friendly fire".

Al K & some new co-defendants must come up w/ $6 billion in damages by order of the court. Seems Al & others were named & found responsible in some way for New York buildings collapsing. Now another New York court has assessed damages at $6 billion. Al was not reached for comment.
I cannot attest to the claims made. Nor their veracity. Reader discretion advised.

That NDAA twist is one of the most powerful moments in journalism ever.
Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.
Obama has to make sure to carefully read the kill lists he's signing. If someone slips his name into one, it would still be valid through the support of Syrian rebels.
Would an ensuing investigation rule it as a suicide I wonder?
One of the ONLY news casters with the balls to tell the TRUTH!
And go figure....ready for war at any expense are John "my friends" "bomb bomb Iran" McCain and Lindsey "to much of a pussy to admit I am gay" Graham.....
To finally turn into Rothschild puppets. Those two are such windbags it defines belief, Rothschild is literally pulling the string-chord anytime either of those frauds open their mouth.
Rockefeller admitted twice that Al-Qaeda isn't real, that his organization financed the Islamic fascists to start burning down America and running all over the place causing mayhem.
Given that Al-Qaeda isn't real, and is pre-fabricated by intelligence agencies; shouldn't we be closing down Rothschild Bank Italia who according to Senate reports....armed and trained all these nuts???
great reply, tnanx

out if this an interdivisional game or interconferance.
Also remember the home team always has the advantage.
Go team GO!
that should be troubling the general public greatly.
But, alas, no one cares because the conflict is over there and we just keep on over here...

we are doing the "right thing". "Killing tyrants", "Fighting for freeom", "bringing democracy", but nobody here knows whats going on over there, we root for whoever the media tells us are the bad guys, and since a real bomb - set by a real foreign power hasn't gone off since 1898 in the mainland USA we haven't got a clue what war is all about.
The only thing the common man really hates about war is when somebody gets killed. But we are going all automation now. And the government figures it needs a few loosely defined "heroes' anyway. Besides we can never get completely rid of a MANNED military as we need something to consume the aggressive tendencies of inner city youth who grew up without proper guidance. We need to train them and really put them in harms way for thae same reason (you KNOW that is a principal reason for today's military, don't you?).
Someday our country and our generation will be cursed for its murderous war culture.
In some parts of the world, we already ARE cursed. : (
Don't I know it?
When traveling in a third world country its always best to speak the local language of course, but if you can't do that - don't let the locals or police catch you speaking English. But if you MUST speak English - NEVER speak it with a definite American accent.
Even in 2003 when people in Ukraine heard me speaking American English they were intrigued. They like to say things like "Chigago Bulls!!!". And attempt a high five.
Since that time though twice I nearly found myself in fist fights as people would say "I heard you speak English. Are you American?" The converstaion remained calm right through me saying "Yes I am American."
THEN suddenly I would hear "What the FUCK are you doing in Iraq! What the fuck are you doing killing everybody? Who the fuck do you Americans think you are?!!!!"
Its not a fun experience. Especially when there are two or three of them and they are drunk.
war is peace, ignorance is strength, freedom is slavery.

Kind of like saying: "The Cleveland Browns... are they the enemy?"
It doesn't matter (except if they happen to be specific rivals in your division). Its a football team.
These wars are not for idealogy or even winning - they are just for fighting.
We never ended the Cold War - we just chose a different opponent. And now instead of simply building weapons - we are using them too - against anybody we can get away with.
"Terrorism" is the perfect opponent because it can never be directly identified, can never be defeated and is on any given day, anything we want it to be.
So, yeah, if Al Qaeida is on the schedule this week - they are the enemies. Rah rah rah Go American Military!!!! Shoot somebody!
but there is a subtle difference to your logic, more people are murdered in the name of terrorists than in your typical football game, although I understand your analogy. ;)
I think the notion of making this idea spread in the public forums may undermine Congress' abilities and maybe put shame on their conscience (if they have any that is) for siding with bills like NDAA. Public perception can go a long way, especially on the internet.
In reality, you are probably right that "it really doesn't matter". Most people are programmed 24/7 by the media-government conglomerate which the establishment owns and can spin any controversy out to oblivion.
So that doesn't leaves us with much peaceful solutions outside of the internet to spread the truth. And in the logic of positivity, we should at all cost avoid being silent, because it will be the death of us for sure.
counter-intelligence & psychological operations programs keep the herd stupid & the uninitiated running in circles. They are far-reaching; usually within the confines of denial.
YOU ARE MORE LIKELY TO DIE FROM A BEE STING, THAN YOU AS AN AMERICAN IN AMERICA ARE TO DIE FROM ANY ACT OFTERRORISM.
WE FORMENT AND SOW THE SEEDS OF TERROR ON A DAILY BASIS AROUND THE WORLD , THEN WE USE OUR TAX MONEY TO FIGHT IT , ALL IN THE NAME OF DEMOCRACY
GIMME A BREAK DUDE
OH YEAH ONE MORE POINT
SO GLAD TO SEE THE COMMENTS AND HOW SO MANY OTHER AMERICANS ARE WAKING UP , UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT ARE TOO IGNORANT TO SEE THE PICTURE IN FULL CLARITY AND UNDERSTAND WE ARE ALL SHEEPLE BEING LED ASTRAY BY THE MEDIA AND POLITCIANS WHICH TELLS US HOW IT IS.
THIS IS WHY WE GO OVER THERE
AND THIS IS WHY NATO IS GARBAGE , THE GUY IN BLACK CLEARLY DISPLAYING A INSIGNIA HMM WONDER WHAT THAT IS
WAKE UP AMERICA!
You said "more people are murdered in the name of terrorists than in your typical football game, " No part of my argument said that people are killed in football games. In fact your argument shows you don't understand what I am saying at all.
WHAT people are killed in the name of terrorists? Bad guys are, right? And how do we define who those bad guys are? They are the people that we are fighting against this week - JUST like a football game.
If we invade a country, anyone we encounter who resists us, we define as a terrorist. A man who picks up a gun to defend against the invaders (US in this case) IS a terrorist. So if he resists and kills someone - that person he killed was killed by a "terrorist".
When we are fighting Al Qaieda - THEY are terrorists. When Al Qaeida is fighting against Assad in Syriah - then ASSAD'S forces are commiting terrorism (against their OWN PEOPLE) but Al Qaeida members are "Freedom Fighters".
It is JUST like a football game. The labels mean nothing. A Cleveland Brown guy this week can become an Arizona Cardinal next week by simply changing his uniform. Similarly a terrorist this week can become a nonterrorist next week by doing the same things, but in favor of a group we like.
If you like - lets define CARS as terrorists. Then we can add another 50,000 deaths by terrorists every year. And of course we will have to increase defense spending similarly.
Swann could have quoted about 10 different news articles that openly discuss Al Qaeda in Iraq... now in Syria.
Those articles have front line accounts, interviews, etc... its all open and in the public.
Ben Swann never holds back, and thats what we need.
When caterpillar sheds his skin, wonder who we'll find within.
He always does a great job, I just wish he'd gotten into the origins of Al Qaeda. If people in this country understood that they are a CIA creation and are still controlled and directed by the CIA we'd be in a much different place regarding all of these illegal occupations in the Middle East.
if people knew the truth, the massive amounts of hate against people of ME decent living in the US would decrease.
This probably doesn't seem important for people on this site who aren't full of hate, but it makes a difference for a whole society of people who are demonized and terrorized by this anger they see everyday on television and unfortunately in real life as well.
I am in the news business myself, and I can assure you, we are always looking for stories our listeners/viewers/followers want to hear. I would suggest we email him urging him to do a Reality Check on the origins of Al Qaeda, perhaps even a series of the origins of Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and then a 3rd explaining the difference between the two.
