    They are. They dropped very few munitions for OIF. We wrote something on one of their bombs, and that bomb was on the Harrier for 1 week. Our jets came back empty every time. I was just suprised, when we did a training excercise, that Mongolia showed up, with aircraft no less.

    Some would argue there's not much difference between the two....or when I'm serious. Go figure.

    My take on it is that chemical weapons and biological weapons are just means of poisoning vast groups of people. That's not the same as killing them properly by blowing them into tiny bits, incinerating them, or otherwise dismembering/disemboweling them. It's a stylistic quibble, I realize, but that's just me.

    Ok, you got me there....but I've provided enough "rational" arguments on these interminable gun threads. So I decided to throw some irrational ones in for some variety.

    Basically, to be a "real" weapon, there has to be an earth-shattering KABOOM! (he said in his finest Marvin the Martian voice)

    Yeah, my time volunteering in an orphanage in Haulecesti taught me otherwise.

    Which is the key. I think that old military aircraft shows are pretty cool. But that's quite different from people flying Sukoi-37 flankers fully armed.

    If you want a Mig20 or Su-27 I know where you can get a few right here in the US that have FAA N#'s and aren't part of the US military.

    The only one I didn't think should be allowed was hand-guns, the reason is pretty obvious.

    Lawd...i really don't want to do this, I just know its going to be the same old stuff for the fifteenth time...sigh.

    Okay, what obvious reason? Other than, its the type of firearm most commonly used for self-defense? Other than, its the most convenient firearm for a law abiding citizen to carry for self-defense?

    OH, I almost forgot, I'm leaving on vacation in the morning! Woo-hoo! I'll have to leave you gents to carry on without me for a few days, try not to be too ecstatic about it.

    Did you get the question backwards by any chance?
