Fury is a childish name for an emotion best expressed as a 4 year old having a tantrum. Given our current status in the World's Eye, it is hardly an
apt name to be giving unto our latest war chariot.
It is also British and while the U.S. is currently already bent over a barrel selling what our 'special friends' need rather than what we do, the
fact remains that the Fury in both biplane and monoplane formats was a dated aerodynamic designs long before they ever fought a war-
Which of course makes it (ironically) an entirely appropriate but rather uninspiring sobriquet for a jet that is itself nothing more or less than
Lunchmeats excuse to 'no matter what!' suck the exchequer dry so as not to end up dead-and-red themselves.
'Vampire' being another great British-farce aviation blunder.
Of course there is at least the wondrous notion that, with an ATL turret fitted, the jet might be called...(drum beat please!) 'Star Fury' as the
representation of yet another British owned 'scifighter' marketing over sense concept.
The Star-Telegram reports Air Force chief of staff Gen. Mosley will release the name of the F-35 (Joint Strike Fighter) by end of June, according to
Whoopy. We all await with baited breath. As opposed to the blase` indifference with which we will wave off notification that the JSF is not a 191,
not a 219, not a 257, nor even a 276 but a 300 billion dollar program. After all 'a billion here and there', matters hardly not so long as it's
the Ami Taxpayers who pony up to guarantee foreign sales prices. Eh Whot? DEWS you say? Bollocks my good man!
Ideas for the F-35s name are ample, but for now it's top secret
Am I supposed to feel 'part of the club' by sending in my vote or something? Industrial Fraud is as Deficiecy Act Governmental Fraud purchases. In
any case, it wouldn't hurt to publish the list and thus give us something like a "The dummies shoulda picked the other one!" satisfaction when they
inevitabely call it the Fighting Chickenhawk instead of the short and brutally truthful: "Armed Robbery".
Five years after the Pentagon embarked on the joint strike fighter program, the Lockheed Martin F-35 is just weeks away from getting a name, and the
final recommendations are as closely guarded as plans for an Air Force bombing strike.
Tap-tap-tap is this thing on? (Cricket Noises). You guys need to fire your marketing director. Right Now. Real Bad.
Overseeing the naming process is Gen. T. Michael "Buzz" Moseley, the Air Force chief of staff who grew up in Grand Prairie.
Say what you mean then explain what you mean then emphasize what you mean. Even when it's purely meaningless. Given that all men are from Mars, why
should Steve Canyon's point of droppage in BFE Lone Star matter to me? We all KNOW it's a GDFW:London conspiracy to make the rich richer folks.
The POTUS grew up in the People's Republic Of Houston too, 'member?
After soliciting recommendations from the military services and eight partner nations helping develop the plane, top Air Force officials have narrowed
the list to a handful of finalists and are moving toward a decision by the end of June, Moseley's spokesman said Saturday.
Golly Wally, you mean the old man was too busy making a list and checking it twice to come to the phone in person? What will his fan club think of
him nose thumbing them? Oh the humanity of it all.
"We're down to a few," said Maj. Glen Roberts. "We're in the finals."
Which is the same as gloating that SDD is in the bag 'no matter how badly the jet screws up' because the Air Farce has effectively killed off all
the other competitors by smothering them with cold dead hands in their cribs. Never mind that they were better. Never mind that this thing is a
piece of trash. It's off to the races!
I wasn't even aware they were looking for a name for the plane, I thought they would keep it "Joint Strike Fighter".
Yeah, we're so innovative like that. Thunderdolt II. F-111 Blank. Fighting Fallacy. F-15 Beagle (till the pooch howls!). 'AMRAAM'.
Given the location and the justification, I can only think of one man who can summatively define this phase of the RICO crime now in progress. Yes,
sirree bob, it was indeed Larry Hagman who once said of pure evil: "You may love to hate me, but I will be laughing at you all, all the way to the
And the peanut gallery roared.
