Sub sneak in this case. I KNOW this guy, and know how he works. I’ll slip in, get the ONE contract (of 29) that is expiring in the near term to renew with some really great numbers, and my peronal guarantee of service (somethign that is worth a heck of a lot after many years of service with these folks) and then just start down the line renewing the other contracts.
Tony does not yet know that I am the one he is up against
The USAF and the RCAF/CFAC also had some nuclear-tipped air-to-air weapons in their inventories, such as the AIR-2 Genie. Canada had them as late as 1984; they were carried by CF-101 Voodoo interceptors. They were officially under US control, but they could be released for use by Canada as circumstances warranted.
In addition to the two big components of the nuclear triad that have already been mentioned – the land-based ballistic missiles and the manned SAC bombers – there was also the third component, the US Navy’s ballistic missile subs. At the opposite end of the scale, the US nuclear inventory includes – if I’m not mistaken – man-portable nuclear demolition charges, designed for things like special commando-type operations. I think a weapon of this type is featured in the 1977 motion picture thriller Twilight’s Last Gleaming.
I find, on average, that pacific is longer than europe. Why? Well if japan is winning its a 6 or 7 turn game. But if Japan is losing the game can last 10 turns. Europe mostly is a 7 turn game no matter who wins.
I know of the Underground Railroad Museum in Cincinnati.
I recently saw a tv news bit about a Slavery Museum…
coulda been the Cincy one, but on one wall was the quote…
"If not us, who? If not now, when?"
I do not believe it was attributed to Ronald Reagan(see my sig below.)
The book “one flew over the cuckoos nest” is from the indians point of view. Its even better than the awesome movie.
Some books -
The bear and the dragon by tom clancy Very long. again uses character jack ryan as president during a war b/w Russia and China
Ismael and My Ismael by daniel quinn Girl talks to a gorrila that can communicate through physcokenisis or something like that.
The ape “Ismael” tries to teach the girl how the world is totally F’ed up and how the world controlles people through “mother culture”. A lot of going back to tribal ways and no locking up of the food. Question work. That stuff
The story of B by daniel quinn. Same ape only about religion this time.
Banking on Baghdad by i forget. The history of foreign influence in iraq going back to around 3000 b.c.
I have not had time to check the links posted but while on the topic of best war movies, I would vote Patton. Screw all those special effects, ill take oscar winning (and refusal to accept) Georce C. Scott. That entire movie is amazing just to simply watch him portray Patton. I heard Patton in real life actually had a higher pithed voice and it would someone squeak. He was pretty embarrassed about it
