yeh I know people poke fun at me and call me all sorts of things, even a "Zionist Dog" but I have never found any of them as insulting as you.

usually the types of attacks I cop on this forum are from people that well are just not all there with their clear antisemitism. My posts are always reasonable and well researched, much more than yours and far more centered than yours with better sources than you. Everyone knows that.

it's usually the ones who poke fun at me who are also the ones that can't put together anything more than a one liner of stupidity. And I know who my friends and supporters are on this forum. I have many. many who think you're an idiot but can't be bothered engaging with you like I do.

For instance, I enjoy far greater support than you do and that is because my posts are more sensible than yours because even if people disagree with my POV, they know that yours borders the incredibly deluded and insane.

yes you should ask around.

There is no one making fun of me except for a couple that call me a Jew and what have you.

You owe an apology. Your ad hominem attacks are consistent and its one page after another whereas you copped none of that from me other than the white socks and sandals joke and a picture of a hummer with its wheels falling off as a meme for all your arguments.

For someone who is constantly berated such as myself (I make myself an easy target) my posts are surely a lot more grounded than your, far more polite and decent than yours. And I am not the hardliner here. YOU ARE! YOU ARE THE FASCIST not me. I am the Liberal. And my views are mainstream. Yours ARE NOT! no one supports Pootin or Assad like you do in the real world. No One.

it's all here in black and white for everyone to see.

And no you do not communicate. Those who call me a Zionist Dog communicate much better than you.


In the poll for who posts the most crap ....... you got 5 votes ..... I got 1 (from you)...... can you not use your self proclaimed comprehensive analytical skills to work out that more people, of those that voted, were convinced YOU post more crap than ME? That is a ratio of 5:1.

I think you are too convinced that you are the only one with a valid argument? As I have said to you before you seem to think YOU are the only one in step! I am sorry to have to tell you this ..... but you are seriously disillusioned and both the content of your posts and the way you project your opinion, confirms this in every post ..... even this one! :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:


I didn't vote for you. My vote in the end went to the other old fart. Couldn't resist! But boy oh boy you were asking for it and that would have given you 2 votes. And that wasn't a personal vote because it was deemed that the creator of the poll is most deserving of my vote but you were extremely close Robin Hood and a very tantalizing prospect I must admit.

And as I told you, my 5 voters are constant (at least 3 of them are just pathetic and personal), what you don't know is all the support I have in the back ground all from what I could say are some forum friends of mine and all of whom actually think you're an idiot. Way more than 5 let me give you the tip.

I have more support than you do, and many more people find your posts ridiculous, not mine. Even people who disagree with my views about Israel, they understand my argument as I understand their's. AND, there are not that many that support your views about assad or pootin. Not many at all as is the case in the real world.

It's not that my arguments are the only valid arguments here. your's are just plain silly, warped, and agenda driven with your multiple chips on your shoulder. You have never had a valid argument at all.

now, how on earth can a man that did 3 years in the RAF, have a warped brain such as yourself? What Happened? how can you go against your own? Were you the only smart one to escape the "brain washing" and "Indoctrination"? Do you or do you not understand and respect the values and ethos that emanate from The British Armed Forces and how can you compare these values to those of the Syrian Regime and Pootin's Russia? Something isn't right here Robin Hood! Did you have these views when you joined? Or are you going to tell us you were young and dumb? how does one leave the RAF and have so much loathing?

Someone who has done time in the British Armed Forces know exactly where their country stands and they know they got NOTHING at all to be ashamed about and they stick together always supporting each other. Britain has gone through its Renaissance you know. A Western Country which grants its citizens total freedom in every aspect and some Brits would say too much freedom.

What was it? Medical grounds? Diabetes or was it that you were way too smart for them and unable to be "brain washed"? Everyone must be an idiot except for you huh? because you read Sputnik! :lol:

Aleppo has fallen !! Assad has not !!
What bloody arguments mate. You are wrong wrong again :lol:
You originally entered the War on Syria thread praising the benefits of having dictators in the ME for stability, you soon changed your mind. Now lets see thus far how consistent you have been with Donald Trump. IDIOT, A BREATH OF FRESH AIR, A BOOOOOFHEAD, UNHINGED, :lol: :lol:

Really? I am wrong am I.

And you claim to live in London. Are you sure it isn't Minsk?

You know, the place where the Minsk Agreement was penned and violated by pootin?

I don't praise War criminals and never have. I don't praise criminals who use Sarin Gas against their own populations.

As for Donald J Trump! I have a 12 month rule before deciding and taking a position, unless it becomes apparent to me that he has breached US law. And I have a sneaking suspicion that he has breached US laws and violated Security Protocols by communicating with the enemy to help him get elected. We will know soon enough.

For the Congress to set up investigation committees with the CIA, there is smoke and where there is smoke there is ...

The CIA has got stuff and just because trump was smart enough to keep at arms length and hence have his scape goat, doesn't mean he didn't know anything about it. He declared war against the media and the CIA, and let's see if that's a fight he can win.

So far, all these organisations are after him - CNN, NBC, CBS, Washington Post, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, CIA, NSA, Department of Homeland Security.

Good luck!

Paphitis;

As usual you have driven the content way off thread ... but anyway:

I didn't vote for you. My vote in the end went to the other old fart. Couldn't resist! But boy oh boy you were asking for it and that would have given you 2 votes. And that wasn't a personal vote because it was deemed that the creator of the poll is most deserving of my vote but you were extremely close Robin Hood and a very tantalizing prospect I must admit

LIAR, liar pants on fire!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

And as I told you, my 5 voters are constant (at least 3 of them are just pathetic and personal), what you don't know is all the support I have in the back ground all from what I could say are some forum friends of mine and all of whom actually think you're an idiot. Way more than 5 let me give you the tip.


If my Aunt had had balls, she would have been my uncle? If, if, if is not justification 5:1 is proof positive! So .... who are all of these friends you have that support you ‘in the background’ and agree with your every word?

I have more support than you do, and many more people find your posts ridiculous, not mine. Even people who disagree with my views about Israel, they understand my argument as I understand their's. AND, there are not that many that support your views about assad or pootin. Not many at all as is the case in the real world.


Rhetoric .... I see no evidence that is true! In The real world? ..... you wouldn’t know what that was if you fell over it. :roll:
It's not that my arguments are the only valid arguments here. your's are just plain silly, warped, and agenda driven with your multiple chips on your shoulder. You have never had a valid argument at all.


Rhetoric .... again I see nothing that supports your opinion.

now, how on earth can a man that did 3 years in the RAF, have a warped brain such as yourself? What Happened? how can you go against your own? Were you the only smart one to escape the "brain washing" and "Indoctrination"? Do you or do you not understand and respect the values and ethos that emanate from The British Armed Forces and how can you compare these values to those of the Syrian Regime and Pootin's Russia? Something isn't right here Robin Hood! Did you have these views when you joined? Or are you going to tell us you were young and dumb? how does one leave the RAF and have so much loathing


I joined because I wanted to fly as a FIGHTER PILOT.... wasn’t clever enough for Cranwell so I settled for an Apprenticeship at RAF Locking .... until there was a vacancy. :roll: So, as you can see, I have always been a down-to-earth and realist type with my feet firmly on the ground. Head in the cloud aspirations of others, were not for me! :roll: :D
Someone who has done time in the British Armed Forces know exactly where their country stands and they know they got NOTHING at all to be ashamed about and they stick together always supporting each other. Britain has gone through its Renaissance you know. A Western Country which grants its citizens total freedom in every aspect and some Brits would say too much freedom.


I didn’t know a thing about anything political in those days ..... we had won The War, beaten the Germans and I wanted to be a hero and fly Hawker Hunters !
What was it? Medical grounds? Diabetes or was it that you were way too smart for them and unable to be "brain washed"? Everyone must be an idiot except for you huh? because you read Sputnik!


Yes ..... medical grounds ....... but they wanted me to go into ‘Admin’ instead of an active RAF unit as a Ground RADAR Technician, but I had to decline their offer. Now the so called heart defect would have been considered normal. and it never stopped me from learning to fly and qualifying as PPL later in life .... so it was their loss not mine! :lol: :lol: :lol:

yes well my vote didn't go to you. 100%

it went to the instigator of the thread. it went to His Royal Highness.

And I am really sorry you washed out but still don't explain your stupid attitude.

Someone who proclaims to have served will only know, that a military requirement doesn't just cease with the defeat of Germany. NATO and a military is a deterrent to war more than anything and if you demilitarize just like in your parallel universe fantasia, you will not defeat the next Germany. You will be defeated and asking for a Hitler like pootin to come along. You see the Brits didn't just start in 1939 with their Hurricanes, Spitties and Mosquitoes.

Just for your information, I had my head in the clouds for a long time. Probably about 500 days worth total time. That's a lot. That would be nearly 2 years of radiation exposure.

And I am afraid, your heart defect would disqualify for you for anything above a PPL, so it isn't just the military that would wash you out. You were washed out from a Class 1 medical.

And just because you got a PPL, doesn't mean you know how to fly. Sorry but you got no 2D or 3D Part 61 Instrument or an ATPL. And you need a Class 1 for that, and not be a heart attack candidate.

But I did get a CAA IMC and night rating! :D

Although I have to admit a 172 or a Piper Warrior can't be anywhere near as exciting as a Gnat, a Hunter or Lightning ...... btw: I once flew in a Mosquito, from Croydon Airport ...... long before your time! A grass strip and the hangar doors still had the cur-outs in for the Handley Page Hamilton’s nose to poke out. (Croydon was The London Airport before it was re[laced by Heathrow)

What the hell is a CAA IMC?

These qualifications don't exist anymore.

Night Rating are irrelevant to. Never had a Night rating but have the Part 61 2D and 3D Approaches (IMC and night). Night Ratings and IMC are for Farmer Joe and a Kennedy licence to kill themselves. How did you slip through the cracks? Did you know about this Government conspiracy?

What the hell is a CAA IMC?


CAA = Civil Aviation Authority as opposed to a US one.

IMC = Instrument Meteorological Conditions..... which is the PPL equivalent of an Instrument Rating ....meaning I can fly and navigate an aeroplane only on instruments without seeing the ground (above the clouds) and make a blind approach and landing.


These qualifications don't exist anymore.


How do you know ..... you implied you had never heard of them?

I agree, they are for PPL's and a pilot cannot use these qualifications to make commercial flights i.e. for payment. But not qualifications to be sniffed at and certainly not a licence to kill! If you get caught out by the weather a least you know where to go and can get back on the ground without hitting anything.
:roll:

As a commercial pilot you seem to spend a lot of time on the ground? You must have more posts on this forum, than you have flying hours! :lol:

I know what CAA is.

And yes I don't know what you mean by an IMC rating. Can you execute NDB, VOR, ILS, GNSS, RNAV and VNAV Approaches with that? Or does it just let you fly in conditions below VFR? get into the specifics please. By IMC do you mean Special VFR? Or did you just learn to get yourself out of trouble?

They have never issued those things in Australia or America. They use to a long time ago, issue a PPL IR (Instrument rating) but the authorities stopped that because too many people were killing themselves.

Flying on Instruments takes a bloody long time to master and it's friggin VERY DANGEROUS for people like you to do it. Kennedy was a victim himself in his bonanza crash. So many guys just end up not knowing up from down. Like diving under water in total darkness. That is the closest analogy to it.

What they teach now in the Syllabus is Instrument flying just to get you out of trouble should you inadvertently get into zero visibility. It's not designed to allow you to fly under IMC Rules or penetrate cloud. you are suppose to maintain Visual Flight Rules or Special VFR which any PPL can declare.

I got hundreds of hours at night just staring at an AH with "The Leans" (sometimes for many hours) and that was at pitch darkness at 1000FT or 2000FT and as low as 300FT and that's way below any Lower Safe Altitude (LSALT). Lot's of Turning at slow speeds and grid searches too with all the flaps out so as to not Stall. No room for error there.

tell me what the privileges are for this IMC Rating.
