Santa will begin his journey at 3:00 a.m. EST. Dec 24th, there will be two CF-18 Hornet interceptors based out of Quebec, that will be on stand by to meet Santa and his air party as he is expected to cross into Canadian air space over eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, there will be another pair of war planes based out of Alberta that will see Santa across the west coast presumably en route to Asia, the statement said.
 




WINNIPEG, Canada (AFP) - Santa Claus is coming to town ... and in these uncertain times, he's being offered a jet fighter escort.


NORAD

Canadian pilots seconded to the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) who normally spend their nights scouring the skies for intruders, will scramble on Christmas Eve for a special mission.
"Santa has communicated to NORAD that he intends to begin his journey at 3.00 a.m. EST, Dec 24," the Canadian armed forces said in a tongue-in-cheek statement.
NORAD plans to use special 'SantaCams' to track the gift-laden sleigh pulled by Rudolf and his reindeer cronies across the night sky.
"At Santa's request, millions of curious children will be able to closely follow his progress and view near real-time updates through special digital photographs and technical information compiled by NORAD," the release said.
Pictures and Santa's progress will be posted on a radar map on a website (www.noradsanta.org) available in French, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese and English.

I think it s nice to see a bit of fun for the little ones of this world, NORAD has been tracking Santa and his reindeer cronies across the night skys for 50 years now, ever since a Colorado newspaper mistakenly printed a phone number for a Santa Hotline the number turned out to be the Operations Hotline for NORAD. Military personal on duty at the time where very surprised to hear small childrens voices asking to speak to Santa.

Phew am I glad he is getting an escort. Great to see the air force is not overly PC as the stores radio stations are.

Oh, gimme a break!


Listen up kiddies: Santa. Does. Not. Exist.

Why are people going out of their way to perpetuate this Santa Claus lie? Why are we LYING to our kids?

And we get on the gummint for lying.


How belief in Santa can be harmful (Link primarily for professing Christians...if you're not a Christian it's not going to mean a whole lot)

Not to be a spoilsport, but I'm getting pretty fed up with this nonsense. Someone actually told me that I was mean because I was not going to feed my 3-year-old the Santa Claus lie (we don't even observe Xmas due to pagan origins). I fired back, "Well, it's mean to LIE to your kids!" Shut that person right up!

Well I guess we know who the Grinch is now
Just kidding Amethyst, you know we love ya. Even if you deny the truth

I actually have it on rather good authority that two Raptors will also be escorting Santa, at least while over the US. Unfortunately, Santa's time differential will leave openings in the coverage. Of course, should terrorists master Santa's time methods, we'd all have more concerns than missing presents under the tree....

This thread is going to end up with Santa having the entire US military backing him for his yearly rounds

What you just saw was some light from Venus reflecting off some swamp gas... Santa is real, and he's watching you... now forget you were ever here.

Hah Escort.

People face the truth:
Santa is Karl Marx, an evil Agent of communism.

Evidence:


  1. He has a Beard like Karl Marx (www.econ.duke.edu...)
  2. He wears RED clothes
  3. He lives where it is cold
  4. He gives away presents for FREE(only commies do that)


That is no escort. They do not want him to land!

Yeah I agree with tsuribito. Santa is the newest Red threat. I may not have any SAMs, but I will do my best to shoot him down. After all who wants a perverted old Commie leaving toys (or potential mind control devices) for our children to play with?

So I ask my fellow truth seekers to join me on rooftops all across the globe. Grab a rifle or something and shoot at everything you see flying on Christmas Eve. Please remmember, It's for the good of the children.

Aren't the Hornets too slow to keep up with Santa's sleigh? My guess is that this very article is a conspiracy... the government is OBVIOUSLY going to use a hypersonic craft like the 'Aurora' to follow Santa. Perhaps even the infamous 'big black triangles'?

Yeah, I'm sure some Muslim terrorists want to hijack Santa's sleigh and run it into the workshop at the North Pole.

They're not gonna do that! They'd get coal in their stockings!


BTW those fighters would have to be going warp speed to escort Santa...when you figure how many homes he's supposed to visit in one night.

My son gets presents year-round and his birthday was 5 days ago.

I know it was my mom. Funny how Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy all liked to forge my mom's handwriting--I figured this out in kindergarten!


Seriously, we don't observe Xmas and we're a Christian family. I know it sounds weird but if you read Jeremiah 10:1-5 you have an explanation.

My son won't be deprived. As I pointed out in a previous post, he gets toys on impulse every so often, and he gets things for his birthday (he just turned 3).

We don't have a Xmas tree or anything here. Just another day for us.

LOL I don't have a stocking.


I'm not trying to be a spoilsport, I'm just sick of hearing about Santa. And I'm tired of people who think I'm mean and depriving my child just because he doesn't have a whole motherlode of toys and doesn't get another load at Xmas. My relatives send my son toys quite a bit all the time. He has too many to begin with.

This time my mother sent him clothes for his birthday.

I agree with amethyst, we should not lie to children by telling them things like "A big fat men wearing red leaves presents if your good", or "A magical fairy leaves money for teethy."
I stopped believing in the easter bunny the tooth fairy and the Tuto (Spanish boogieman) when I was 7, santa when I was 9 and almost all my life I've never believed in the Judeochristian god.
On a side note maybe santa uses a time stopping machine.
