    I found this on another forum and after watching it found this pretty amazing. In this video an Isreali pilot has a midair collision with an A 10 on a training exercise. He doesn't realize it, but one wing is torn off in the collision. He flew his plane to the closest airbase and landed his plane successfully.

    Given what's going on in the Middle East right now, Israel and her military can use all the breaks she can get.

    What do you mean? No political debate? The only thing more interesting than that is theological debate.... :biggrin :D :)

    I would love to hear Trip's take on the current middle east crisis. Are you discussing it anywhere else James?

    LOL. I was just trying to get Jak's heart rate up a little.... :twisted:

    As to your post to Trip.... Well, I'm all for Isreal on this one. No nation in the world would, nor should they, allow a neighboring nation to harbor someone shooting rockets into its cities. As far as I'm concerned Isreal has every moral and legal right in the world to protect themselves from those whose sole purpose for living is to destroy Isreal.

    Everyone wants to blame Isreal for the Palestinian's problems and for the Palestinians not having a homeland. I say, Bull puckey to that. If the Arabs really cared about their own people the Arab nations in the region could each easily give up a small amount of territory and a few of the billions of dollars from their oil income so their fellow Arabs could have a homeland, but they won't. They would much rather let their fellow Arabs suffer and play political games placing all the blame on Isreal.

    I'm not sure how deep we should go into this. I have my convictions and beliefs but I don't know if CF is really the right place to express them. There have been reports both in biblical times and since the formation of the modern state of Israel of unexplained or supernatural forces aiding Israel in war. While this incident occured during a training mission as opposed to war, we can either accept that the F-15 in question violated the laws of physics and aerodynamics or we can suggest that the One who has protected Israel for millenia is continuing to do so.

    Off my soapbox now. Good night all.

    Oh man, if you're going to bring religion into it as well, I'm definitely out. I've already got this guy at work trying to convert me to Islam.

    This thread is now heading towards grounds that are outwith the boundaries of what CF is here for, so can we gently head back towards the mainstream IT certification area here, Guys ?

    Thanks :)

    Yes it is Gav but then again it is the lounge/off topic forum and what's going on in the middle east is of paramount importance and we, as adults should be able to discuss the issues without the conversation spiraling into a slagging match. Personally I know I could learn a lot from reading peoples various slants on the situation, I have already read things in this thread that have made me stop and just think. It's a shame to call it a day when the ball had just got rolling :rolleyes:

    Baba I don't think anyone here would attempt to convert or change you in any way whatsoever. You are fine just the way you are :wink:

    James, thank you but I would like to know more. If you get the time for a PM, I am all ears.
