Warm Up The Enola Gay

I’m just so disgusted by the way those poor men were butchered by the “insurgents” that my usual standards of christian restraint are being sorely tested. I basically at this point still want to turn the whole place into glass, to be quite frank.
Which led me to mention in a conversation today whether Paul Tibbets was still alive (he is, actually) and whether at 91 he could still pilot the Enola Gay and deliver the package. My google search turned up the following quote from Tibbets which gave me a good black humor laugh:

“We’ve never fought a damn war anywhere in the world where they didn’t kill innocent people. If the newspapers would just cut out the shit: ‘You’ve killed so many civilians.’ That’s their tough luck for being there.” – Paul Tibbets to Studs Terkel, 2002

    A 91-year old bomber pilot has bigger huevos than half the US Congress combined with three-quarters the journalists. As great as that quote is, it does highlight our current problem with permanent juvenalia. If he’d said that to Matt Lauer poor Matt would have wet himself.

    I would get a good chuckle if we successfully bombed our enemies with WWII technology.

    Bob Greene did some great columns on Tibbets a few years back.

    Paul Tibbets is a tribute to Marin County, a County lost to the winged moonbats a long time ago they are infuriated he still lives, and lives among them.

    We pretty much do every day. A beautiful thing, too.

    I have to write that one down. The media boohoos everytime a civilian gets whacked by us but never asks why they were there, are they actually innocent and never seems to come down on an enemy so lowlife that they use civilians as cover.
