Shit A-10 pilots don't say
"I'm really glad the current coward-in-chief and the brass are not letting us work some ISIS columns."

I love this kind of thing and my only regret is that I'm not on that trigger.
Beautiful sound. This aircraft gives me a woody.
World wide there are approximately 1 billion of these targets.
And yet 9 out of 10 of those pieces of shit in the Pentagon will tell you that this aircraft is obsolete, tactically useless, and unsuitable for 21st Century warfare.
Oh, but let's build a hundred of those F-35s at $141M a pop.
Who with a brain doesn't love the Warthog? Certainly an infantryman's best friend.
Which begs the truth that air assets cannot create a decision in war. That is a simple truth, but completely unknown to 99.99% of civilian leaders. Sadly, the exclusive use of air power (minus ground troops with rifles and tanks) is never a good idea.
I'm completely in love with the A-10. And for these muslifucks to be killed by a 'Warthog' is beautiful - beyond appropriate. There should be a little bit of pig fat in each round.
However, drones with major lift capacity that are being developed for crowd control (tame the Ferguson savages for one) can bring the delivery of terminal justice right up front, close, and personal. They could be called 'Piglets' to keep the porcine concept going.
I recently spend a pleasant afternoon with some teenage boys, brainstorming ideas and designs on how to make completely legal drone killers using PVC pipes, compressed air, and perhaps nerf footballs or perhaps paintballs in a sabot. Projectiles that will permanently take out a nosy neighbor's drone, and that when falling back to earth, wouldn't harm a baby.
What do you think I was doing? I was stimulating and prepping their minds to be prepared to fight back when SkyNet, or all the local warlords and would-be Stalins', seizes control of Michael Richard's drones. Crowd control with drone-served weapons: those machines are an abomination in a free country with free peoples. When that day comes, those boys grown now to men will know what to do, and those damn infernal machines will be flaming wrecks.
@Fleming — when it gets to that stage a twelve gauge with goose loads will do just fine.
Thank you for that, my friend. To an Infantryman, that 30mm Gau-8 Avenger gun sounds like God farting on His enemies. Oh, Glory Hallelujah!
@Fleming - agreed re free peoples and drones - keep them offshore (government/military use) and onshore (private use only). My comment re Ferguson was not good, and you're right.
@Michael Richards, "These pretzels are making me thirsty!"
I saw someplace where a Warthog is being converted to weather duty by some college.
Made me think -- Given the conversion to storm chaser, why can't someone build a sport model? The aerobatics demonstrations would be pretty spiffy.
Never did understand why they stopped building them.
