  1. It's really no different than the mountain of enlisted EPRs that support squadrons have. Some MX and security forces squadrons have 300+ individuals.
  2. Would have been great if Jill has said the “I agree” part.
  3. Probably in part because they can't fill the airtime with views of the courtroom theatrics. Courtroom sketches and transcripts don't make for exciting 24-hr news coverage.
  4. The quote was in relation to the Arbery case. Glynn County, GA is 70% white and 26% black so the proportionally there should have been 3-4 black people on the jury.
  5. Legitimate question: how many people do “we” have left? US nationals? Helped us? NGO personnel?
  6. Which won't interface at all with the bombing computer because of the nuclear certification so the navs still need to hand jam the atmospheric data.
  7. Nobody cares that the PT-6 (which powers nearly ever turboprop it seems) is from Canada. The engines are designed and built in Indy as was previously stated. I don't see how a "foreign-source" protest argument would hold water. In addition to the C-130 engines, the V-22 engines are also sole-sourced from RR.
  8. Rolls-Royce is the supplier of the C-130 engines so I think not.
  9. Then you're going to have the look-down and clutter issues against the faint IR signature of a single exhaust stack of a GA aircraft. A problem that can be worked but it will definitely decrease the Pk. Not that the 9X doesn't have those issues either (*cough FM33*).
  10. If you have the opportunity I would read some of the CJCS CCIRs for them on SIPR. There have been some intercepts that are illuminating to say the least.
  11. https://youtu.be/X1FJqkAtDcc ATC audio of a West Point C182 that violated the NYC TFR. This is why we can't have Aero Clubs...
  12. Now that the Afghanistan is over, does anybody think the 2001 and 2003 AUMFs will be repealed? AUMF reform is desperately needed so Congress can actually take some responsibility and actually vote for committing US forces to conflicts rather than abdicating all of the responsibility onto the Executive. Something that I learned from the below podcast was that the 1991 AUMF is technically still in effect and was used in part as the legal basis for committing forces to OIR in 2014. The Lawfare Podcast: AUMF Reform After Afghanistan - Lawfare (lawfareblog.com)
  13. The video of the strike is on SIPR as well for the armchair quarterbacks to made their own post-strike BDA.
  14. Initial indications from CENTCOM allude to there being large secondaries since the target was a VBIED.
  15. There has recently been a study on this Reduced Risk of Reinfection with SARS-CoV-2 After COVID-19 Vaccination — Kentucky, May–June 2021 | MMWR (cdc.gov)
  16. It'll be interesting to see what intelligence estimates assessed the crumbling of the entire ANA and Afghan government in less than 96 hours. I'm going to bet that the US and other coalition governments are going to make a deal with the Taliban to secure departure of their personnel. The issue is different than 1975 in that there isn't the threat of armored divisions bearing down on the capital. We tried to make a peace deal in 2020, let's see how much the "new" government is willing to negotiate.
  17. Or former House Speaker, John Boehner
  18. She wasn't just pre-determined she is/was. She has the most medals in international competition for any gymnast ever (male or female) on the beam, she has two floor skills named after her, and she is the first woman to win five individual all-around world championships and has not lost an individual all-around in competition in eight years.
  19. It took a while to find it because the book was buried in my HHG but maybe they're looking to bring back the glory days of the O-Club. The Minot AFB Officer's Club from Jack Broughton's Rupert Red Two:
  20. Or Grand Forks AFB. That base should have been shuttered when the tankers left. Especially now that the Global Hawk is gone.
  21. When I was at BAF they we were in the "hardened" shelters with the T-walls that were 2-3 stories tall. I was on the ground floor and thought that if any IDF came in vertical enough to hit the ground floor or collapse the whole thing, getting on the floor wouldn't help.
  22. Agree. The MC's rehearsed and test fit the MOAB drop for months before they did the thing. There already aren't enough hoses to go around in the AOR, I don't know how dynamic targeting and load planning will fit into the the MC-Js planning cycle.
  23. I'm pretty sure South Park did an episode about this 20 years ago.
  24. CF: The load master had to be woken up from his nap.
