    I think it is great that the Iranian aircraft industry has burst forth into the 1960s. I'm looking forward to some epic swing wing designs.

    Too optimistic. Vladivostock sits behind some major swamps & a really, really big river. I'm not convinced that even a much better equipped and trained Chinese force would have much success against...

    I suspect our neighbourhoods are a bit more different than you think. It is actually a very affluent inner city neighbourhood and pretty safe. Real estate per square meter is among the top ten...

    How 'formerly' are you talking DOR? Pre-Obama I assume. The 'honour' was decreasingly evident during his Presidency. A segment of the GOP was a fair way down the hole when Trump arrived. Its near...
