Was the Iranian pilot angered by an Anti-Islam YouTube video?

“He [the Raptor pilot] flew under their aircraft [the F-4s] to check out their weapons load without them knowing that he was there, and then pulled up on their left wing and then called them and said ‘you really ought to go home,’” Gen. Welsh said.


I bet that Iranian needed clean shorts when he landed.

Putin is wrong. Israel is hated whether they have nukes or not, whether they surrender their own land to Muzzies or not.

Straight propaganda! Very sad to say but the US is desperate for a victory. This might have happened in the spring (per the date), but the fact that they have to dig this out to get people excited. Lame beyond low expectations.

Wow, hope and change looks like crap from my house!

It’s rather pointless now because Kelly McGillis is no longer hot.

Exactly, and while I may give Putin a few points against Obama, he should keep his yap shut about Israel’s nukes.

Israel has had them for decades and has never used them for bluster. Iran would be tossing out the fact they had them every hour or two on a regular basis.

Israel/read that the joos, can do nothing right when it comes to the Arabs.

It’s pointless to even ponder concessions. To what purpose? All it will buy you is less of whatever you give up. Period.

Those old Phantoms are still flying!

After 50 years!

They are tough old birds that really do take a licking and keep on ticking.

Not bad for an aircraft designed in the 1950’s before hardly anyone knew what an integrated circuit was.

The Iranian pilot was angered by the youtube video of Danger Zone sung by Kenny Loggins.

I think I saw her in a spook movie, ‘The Innkeepers’, and when the wife pointed her out, I let out a little yelp.
