Your Sunday Morning Rocket Noise

Tomahawk launches:


There were a number of reasons why I opted to pull the pin and get out well short of retirement. Tomahawk, especially the TLAM-N/A version, was among them.

The missile made you leave the service? This trump distraction move is brilliant! As good as bombing an aspirin factory and just as expensive to US taxpayers. Nice that Trump warned his Russian friends before cratering the tarmac so he didn't kill the night watchmen like Clinton did. From pictures it appears we were also careful to spare Vlad's expensive Su-25 Frogfoot close support aircraft. The airfield was back in operation the next day. trump cooked this up with bff Putin and the media ate it up. Bombing shit proved popular so look for trump to do lots more. Let's hope he continues to warn the bombees before bombing so no lives will be lost-only millions and millions of taxpayer dollars.

Tod, it was a factor, but not the only one.

Deadstick, I did not want to have anything to do with the strategic weapons programs. When I went in, it was easy to do that (stay the hell away from anything to do with the bubbleheads), but the Tomahawk program changed all that.

My mistake-they were old Su-22s and 4 were destroyed but none of trump's Russian comrades were harmed: https://warisboring.com/u-s-cruise-missiles-struck-syrian-base-with-impressive-precision/

Spent sixty million dollars bombing the shit out of an empty parking is good business.
