    Re-education lets see, where have I heard that before. Oh, thats right the communist used re-education in the prisions of China and the Soviet gulags.

    Come on Sergeant, there's a difference between indoctrination versus promoting understanding and eliminating ignorance. I wouldn't blame the pilot though, I'd blame the idiot passengers. Or at least the passengers deserve a greater share of the blame, even if the pilot was being an idiot as well.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Oh I have a feeling the airline will be sued.

    It was a bull**** move and anyone with sense knows it. I think Ikari pretty much sums it up.

    It depends on why he did it. If it was a security issue, good for him. If it was purely based on them being Muslim, that's a disgrace.
