Well, hell, OK, all of them but Washington.
    Really? He got Turmp to be his bitch and give up some things without giving up anything. I would say he has done a remarkable job in making himself a powerhouse.

    Is it? Validating the existence of a dictator and legitimizing his totalitarian power by treating him as an equal head of state?

    I am not sure I would call that an accomplishment, more along the lines of a bit of the US getting buggered by a dictator to make Trump think he has accomplished something.
    Chairman Kim Jung Un is the Supreme Leader of North Korea. I don't think that anyone doubts that. He is a head of state. His country has the 4th largest standing army in the world. The country has a population of over 25 million people. President Barack H Obama recognized President Raul Castro of Cuba. Did you oppose that?

    Oh bullshit! I've been involved with aviation both military and civilian for almost 40 years. I have way more experience than you. Go try to buy fuel for you 172 and tell them you want 300 pounds forth of avgas. LOL!

    We shall see, but I tend to agree with you on this point.

    He is a head of state. So is every dictator in the world. It does not mean that they are on equal moral ground.

    the 4th largest standing army, made up of starving, ill equipped soldiers with absolutely no resources. Having a million folks standing around does not mean they are powerful.

    Your but, but, but, but Obama...defense rings pretty hollow. I am not the thread topic. Start a thread on Obama and Cuba and I may grace it with my presence.

    If you are referring to a Cessna 172, a civilian, non commercial aircraft, fuel is not measured in pounds. However, with a 777 and in the military it is measured in pounds, as it affects things such as take off, range, cruising speed, etc.

    Your claims of experience ring hollow.

    You got a link to that, because I don't remember seeing that?

    Give it a rest. Even the military and the civilian commercial aviation buys fuel, be it Jet A, Jet A-1, JP-5 and JP-8 by the gallon/barrel. These fuels are not, repeat, NOT bought by the pound.

    How much actual aviation experience do you have as a PIC? Just curious. If you have your private license, that is enough for me to grant you aviation experience.

    Why do we always have to have a "link" to prove something is the truth. Having a "link" is demonstrably NOT evidence of truth.
