Who flys more? But aren't your usual arguments - "The USA builds and drives gas-guzzling oversized SUV, etc. etc." I've never seen your point being we drive too much. My point was the French/German-Airbus is building the Hummer of the skies...

I guess I, also, did fail to mention that IMO the environmental impact of jet emissions is minimal. I would also point out that there are serious gaps in the research done on the issue, not to mention the heavy reliance on sketchy modeling.

For one, the fuselage of that aircraft is about 1/4 the size of the new airbus; two, the plane is 50 years old; three, the smoke you see is a byproduct of water-injection, used at takeoff for increased thrust. It may increase particulate matter (smoke), but it actually reduces NOx emissions; four, I dont think a military aircraft is applicable to this thread.

Makes my heart soar like a hawk seeing 8 jet engines belching smoke. I can only hope he's heavily burdened with kisses for Sadam or some other pi$$ ant terrorist. Maybe Yassir Arafat?

Maybe we'll find those WMD's in Syria next year

It would have to be a pi$$ ant because you only fight the weakest poeple on planet Earth

You are in the middle of a humiliating defeat in the Iraqi war (and thats at the hands of a made up, not real, B.S enemy )

You army is old and spent and your millatary tactics are well known thus out of date

so I dont think so
