    Helicopter crash in Afghanistan could be tail roader malfunction…….choppers such as the Apache must keep forward momentum for as long as possible to keep from spinning out of control……..landing near a friendly outpost is far preferable than coming down in enemy territory…….don’t be so quick to condemn the pilot until investigation is done.

      @Superman, these jealous trolls try to craftily find a way to steal other user names and try to make outrageous posts impersonating that person. We've all had it happen to us but you just have to laugh it off.

    Obama promoyes infrastructer can be a good thing. If we need to rebuild, then we should give a majority of these jobs to minority companies, they are usually the smaller ones and could afford to hire more people to get the work done. The union companies tend to run lean crews that cause the work to be done at a slower pace, and only provide work on a temp basis. The minority companies will cost this country less money, and can provide the same quality work to spechs as the unions can . Like ive said before this country is built! Hand the cake to some one else so they can eat it to

    @@@chuck boyles,,,,,,, i dont know much about these killer, what i mean is awesome machines, but what you say makes a lot of sense! Id rather fly on military air craft than a civilian airliner anyways. The maintenance is more frequent as well.

    Asama bin laden is gone why cant we just pull our guys out of there and be done with it before any more of our men and women lose there lives ? Its just not worth one more life. Weve done every thing that we can , iraq has been heard of very little, so we did something there right, did we not? But theres never no easy solution to a war . They have suffered enough , and we are secure here in the US . More so than the 911 attacks. Its time to bring our troops home

    More to the point, what the Committee on fraud will be doing in the future!
    Get ready folks, some WILL be going to the prison camps that have been built for *terrorists*
    Why you say I think so?
    I ask why haven't those prisons been even a fourth filled? Hmmm
    Anyone knows to ask questions
    Be inquisitive
    Open your mind to whats really going on, instead of staying in your little bubble
    Side note: My mothers nick name is BUBLES! 😉
    And outside of these blogs... I am too.
