Why not, right?



Anyway, looks like they're gearing up for a potential proxy war between Isreal (maybe Egypt) and Lebanon.

I wonder if we'll manage to slip a couple of F-22s to Isreal sometime soon.

If Iran gets any closer to having nukes Israel is going to fucking take them to the mat before they get a chance to use them, I'd hate to see what would happen if a nuke got smuggled into Israel. I realize the world hates our "world police" stance but it's the fucking right thing to do with these groups that can't settle fueds after all these years, especially when nukes become involved.

I was really pretty surprised that Tehran didn't get leveled by F-15s as soon as Iran announced that they had a nuke's worth of material.

Chinese have supposedly developed a weapon that can destroy a US Aircraft Carrier from 2000km away.
