is harrier and harrier jumpjet the same aircraft
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16914053


Yep, one and the same. They were always my favourite at airshows. Very cool planes.
Out of this ugliness may come,
Some day, so beautiful a flower,
That men will wonder at that hour,
Remembering smoke and flowerless slum,
And ask-glimpsing the agony
Of the slaves who wrestle to be free-
'But why were all the poets dumb?'
-William Montgomerie

So many gods, so many creeds,
So many paths that wind and wind,
While just the art of being kind
Is all the sad world needs.

Apologies for the daily fail link lol. It would seem the Harriers would be expendable since the US got them at such a ridiculously low price.

Within six months of Coalition's exit in 2014, the Taliban most likely will take control of Afghanistan. Perhaps Pakistan will fall in line next.

The US Marines have always had Harriers, since the 1970'S. They did buy some ex-British ones but they generally make their own in the states.

With Heroin at an all time low price, going to have to shift some more product boys!!

Heroin @ $200 per gram
1 Harrier @ $35 million

that's 175,000 grammes of stuff for a jet. (0.175 tonnes)
so 6 of them would be just over a tonne of product.damned

 Quoting: BuggedOut





CIA aircraft have repeatedly crashed with multi-ton loads of cocaine so I'd bet a ton of heroin would prove to be no challenge at all.

Hmmm, I was wondering about that too. What with all the other nonsense that is going on around the world, somebody somewhere with a vested interest in taking out certain Moslem nations is clearly trying to get us all wound up to do something really silly...and probably terminal.

Time for reasoned thinking and some unaccustomed, altruistic leadership skills from our politicians, perhaps. Yeah, right!

Still, nothing is going to happen...the GLP effect will sort it!

If you have Google Earth installed, you can copy and paste the co-ordinates for Camp Bastion from this site (first line):

[link to toolserver.org]


It looks like the satellite image shows the base while it was still under construction. There are also pictures you can click on.

I found this picture showing a fence around the the base. I don't see walls or sandbags. It would take like five seconds to get through this fence with the right equipment/explosives.

Maybe they should beef up the perimeter defenses?

Here's another image with what I guess you could call a wall:

Obviously there were no Navy SEALs there or this attack would not have been at all successful -- one SEAL is the functional equivalent of a regular company of soldiers or Marines (120 men).
