  • How two Mi-24 gunships ended up in a rubbish tip in Australia.

    Darwin's waste dump seems an inglorious full stop to an exciting story involving Russian helicopters, mercenary special forces soldiers and the fall of a prime minister at the brink of a military revolt.

    But the events that led to two Mi-24 gunship choppers being secretly buried in the hazardous waste section of the Shoal Bay landfill have largely been a mystery — until now.

    I read an attached story in the above article that claimed Australians and Americans had similar views on gun control. The sample taken in the poll was 8000 people. That is not a large sample in America and can skew the poll by selective sampling the 300 plus million population in America. In Texas and other Southern states people like owning guns. That does not mean you can't find a few counties that are far out liberals. I am thinking of Austin, say. If the poll was taken in areas of Australia with similar Liberal bias, would the results be different?

          They'd be in a museum but both are riddle with asbestos. Standard Soviet practice apparently.

              Useless. I saw some dude shoot one down with an arrow. However, if you really want one, go to eBay.

                  I hear that passenger cars are banned from downtown Amsterdam. If you can't drive into the city, then how will the authorities there view a big-ass whirlybird? Where will you park the thing? And how much will they clip you for insurance especially the armed model?

                    It was a mistake. I swear it. I was distracted by the Alien Mothership attacking us....
