      Sorry, or the service is unbearable?

      I think the second ... The Rook’s flight hour is much cheaper than the F-16 (hours). Yes, and fly on a Su-25, easier (easier). How many “bears” there have interestingly flown? It seems that the Iraqis did not have losses?

            In fact, it’s incorrect to exhibit such photos, I personally feel sad for Saddam, a sad sight

            Specifically, this photo refers to the trial and execution of Hussein. And they tried him, by the way, for poisoning the Kurds with chemical weapons, including civilians. Do you feel sorry for the hanged dictator, but don't you feel sorry for the Kurdish children exposing the lungs?
