    In 2002, the Iraqi Air Force had at most 10 flyable aircraft on any given day due to parts shortages.

    On a typical day they might have launched 3 training sorties.

    If they were really feeling frisky they would send 1 (count 'em) MiG-25 up towards the No-Fly zone just to see if we were paying attention.

    And yet I was to believe that this country was a threat to not only their neighbors but the entire world?

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
