    I'm a little surprised this doesn't happen more often . Places like this many ofthe locals have never seen a "friendly" aircraft.
    Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.

          MOSCOW, December 28 (RIA Novosti) - A UN helicopter with Russian crew that was downed in South Sudan last week was probably mistaken for one of the Sudanese aircraft with UN markings that frequently violate South Sudan’s airspace, South Sudan’s ambassador to Moscow said in Friday.
