#1 Yeah, bad weather you know - they hit a cloud with a rock inside.

#2 Note to IRG: prayer doesn't substitute for maintenance.

#3 Grom, better to trust prayer - maintenance crews could commit sabotage. Yeah, and probably did; I'm sure of it (are you reading this, Republican Guard?)

#4 Iran is losing helicopters that are in country faster than the U.S. is in a war zone.

If there indeed are ops going on in Iran, it will make for some interesting reading if someone writes a book someday. And one more thing, whoever is in charge of ops in Iran deserves a promotion.

#5 I wonder if some of those shoulder fired anti aircraft missle supplied to Iraqi insurgents made their way back to Iranian Kurds???

#6 We first thought of Baluchistan, but decided the Kurdish areas were "better suited" for our purposes.

#8 You're all wrong - it's my new super-duper, Top Secret ACME battle management and laser offense system. I can sit here in Colorado Springs and shoot down helicopters in Iran, blow up trains in Saudi Arabia, and sink pirate ships off the coast of Somalia - as soon as I master the game console. They're all doomed, doomed I tell ya! Thanks to Haliburton War Games division.
