    just curious, whats the point of the smoke/ flare things? are they really counter-measures or are they supposed to just look like leaving a pair of angel`s wings behind?

    Yofuzzy, I was always under the impression that the flares were to confuse the guidance systems on incoming missiles launched from enemy planes. Whether it be by heat or something.

    yofuzzy - the flairs are for if a heat seeking missile is coming at you, it follows the flairs instead of the plane.

    "just curious, whats the point of the smoke/ flare things? are they really counter-measures or are they supposed to just look like leaving a pair of angel`s wings behind?"

    That photo is somewhat famous. It comes from the Marine C-130 Squadron VMGR-234 out of Ft. Worth Texas. (Any C-130 can make this effect and there are plenty of photos of other sqaudrons doing the same) I spent three years with them and saw around 30 different countries. They are chaffe and flares and of course the draft from the wind and wings is what causes the angel effect. Also, of course, aside from looking cool they are used as counter-measures from anti-aircraft (ground to air or air to air) missiles.

    The last one was taken during sea trials for the USN Nimitz. It was taking hard turns to port and starboard to evaluate stability, Notice that no planes were on board and no one was on the deck.

    LOL "Defense" implies you are defending your own soil, not attacking more than 250 foreign countries. It`s not a "defence" budget.

    @Gozirra, Butcher and Paco
    If I had to make an estimated guess, that`s not an AT-AT but a rangefinding scope of some sort and in stead of a tripod they used one with 4 legs.

    "But the best defene is a good offene."

    Having a good offense would imply attacking every country that /might/ be a threat before they can possibly do any harm to us. If you don`t understand why this is a bad thing, then I hope that you aren`t placed into a diplomatic position.

    Hell, even the 1 dollar bill has what should be the best defense printed on the back, where the eagle is holding arrows in one claw and an olive branch in the other. That is, you show that you can be ready for war at a moment`s notice, but to display your preparedness only with a show of peace.


    Sorry if this turns into a flame war in advance.

    I hate uneducated nimrods who say the citation is wrong even though every entry there is verifiable elsewhere, who have such a poor knowledge of world events and international customs that they think something is spelled wrong when it isn`t, and who change tense from future speculative to present in mid-sentence. By the way, I have an IQ of 148, a B.Ed., B.Sci. and B.Psych.(Hons). Very uneducated.

    "Silversoul46: sometimes it the army isn`t killing people who hurt others, sometimes they kill other innocent people, like in Hiroshima, those were little families and kids. Anyway, those pictures were awing."

    Hiroshima did take innocent lives but guess what? The very reason WWII came about was due to Germany`s taking innocent lives to begin with. Dropping the bomb on Hiroshima was the lesser of two evils as well as putting an absolute end to the war. See, it was a matter of math. To put it simply: If you had your choice of sacrificing 1 innocent life for every 15 innocent lives your enemy was taking by dropping the bomb or allowing your enemy to continue their rate of genocide on innocent lives and prolonging the war?

    The bomb on Hiroshima killed innocents but not NEARLY as many innocents- "little families and kids" as the enemy, Germany, in their genocide against any person who didn`t fit their perfect race.Given the choice of killing 10,000 in an effort to

    Yes, you`re right. I stand corrected. My apologies to Lion.

    I still stand by what I say however about the ignorance, the flippancy and the assumed ill-informed references towards U.S. military initutives as per attacks vs. counter-attacks in it`s history.

    All of us have opinions, but that doesn`t lend any of us the right to spread half-truths or complete falsehoods. There`s a responsibility to truth. We`d all be better off if we did our homework before spouting off. Myself included. I admit it when I`m wrong. Thanks for your post Djer. :)

    Thanks Bored, accepted. And yes, I agree with you that no matter how the rest of us see US military policy, it`s government has its own reasons for that policy which we ordinary mortals will never have to know or understand. It`s easy to criticise (Australian spelling :-) ) governments when you don`t know everything they do.

    "Lionheart2: > Bored2Run> `I hate it when uneducated nimrods use Wiki as a citation as if it were valid..`. I hate uneducated nimrods who say the citation is wrong even though every entry there is verifiable elsewhere, who have such a poor knowledge of world events and international customs that they think something is spelled wrong when it isn`t, and who change tense from future speculative to present in mid-sentence. By the way, I have an IQ of 148, a B.Ed., B.Sci. and B.Psych.(Hons). Very uneducated." Whoa, I missed this one. Frankly, I don`t feel the need to advertise my resume` on an entertainment forum. Having an education myself,I already know Wiki`s unreliability and the hyperbole it carries due to it`s lack of screening of the membership that`s at liberty to add text on whims.
    Being so educated yourself and admitting other citations can list references with higher standards, I`m left confused why you didn`t cite them initially.

    Also Lionheart2, as far as Queenspeak vs. Amer-speak, I lived in the U.K. for a few years off the North Sea (Hull). Never been to Australia though and the Aussies I am in contact with on other sites don`t spell with "c" instead of "s".

    I think you`re a good guy, don`t get me wrong. But stop assuming I or anyone else is an idiot.

    I`ll do the same, Mate.

    I agree Bored that wikis are, by their very method, unreliable, but I think people tend to over-exaggerate their unreliability. I give an example I think you`ll find amusing:

    In late 2005, I created an entry on wikipedia about Petrogale godmani which was completely BS, and not only BS, but wildly unbelievable in places. Initial entry here.

    If you look at it`s History page, you see a long list of revisions by eminent, learned and sensible people - tentative at first, but soon snowballing. The final version of the page is complet

    Talk about half truths! While it is true that the bomb ended what would have been a much longer, bloodier war, Hiroshima is in Japan. Germany surrendered in May of 45 and japan surrendered more than three months later in August. Read a book.

    "Yep. US military is still the most badass.

    100% agree. As the largest military presence, we`re also the largest target. One could argue that since we`re also one of the world`s most advanced and economically prosperous (not so much as of late, but still, quite prosperous comparatively) countries, we need the huge military force to keep us protected.


    But I don`t think so. I think our "world police" position makes us inherently more prone to getting f*cked by other nations/terrorist groups. Bullpoo you say? Best example there is: 9/11. What was the motive? Think about that

    Memorex, Not everything has to be blood and genocide, jesus... Just appreciate decent photography instead of reading into every freaking political detail. It makes you look like a prick.

    Anyway, Effing nice high-speed shots. I love the emissions from that large planes flares. Totally sweet effect.
