..within limits:  Crying "War!!!" under the NATO Treaty Article 5, and
allowing the UK, Denmark, France et al into his war, Sissy Boy George
bound himself and the US, fully, to the full 4 Geneva Conventions of
Aug. 12'th 1949 and their 2 Protocols Additional of June 7th 1977. 

..Israel joining in on the fun on Nov 21'st 2001 in time for Jenin 2002
and Sissy Boy George's "illegal combattant" spin on Gitmo etc, has 
The SCO Group's spin look honorable, it really _is_ just a classic
pump-'n-dump case, even if it's been gutted at http://Groklaw.net, 
it is _not_ an oil pillage scheme.  Yeah, pillage _is_ a war crime.

..general Kevin P. Byrnes, 4-Star TRADOC Commander was fired for
listening to advice on what combat proven sarges 'n GI's needs to 
win these idiot wars without committing war crimes like genocide.
And yes, Sissy Boy George's regime spun it differently.

..depends, RNoAF and RNoN, and I was _shit_ lucky, "my" war 
was _cancelled_, the Russians scrapped the Soviet Union.  :o)

..pass, but I do know Debianising http://brlcad.org/ will be useful 
to at least http://flightgear.org/ , as it would allow apt installs and
allow us taking advantage of some nice work done by the Army, 
we're talking both 3D modelling of aircraft and scenery objects, 
some of these are AI controlled.  We try to make it realistic.  ;o)

  Scenarios always come in sets of three: 
  best case, worst case, and just in case.
