The politicians are adept at cunning sophistry, guile, deception, con, lies, fabrication, dishonesty and unscrupulous exploitation of intellect for self regarding interests.
Power is a dirty word but dirty the pollies have to play, there is no other way to be a pollie.

They sound just like you! Say a bunch of generalized nothing that makes them nod their heads you are right, and they think you are smartest thing on earth. If 6 out of every 10 don't know you said nothing, you are ahead of the game. So far, more than 40% here thinks you are full of boloney, myself included. :lol:

Warfare is the art of deception.

And more numbers. That's how most wars are won.


Unless you’re the SAS then numbers means nothing. Something like 15 or 20 SAS held off 1000 Africans. I can’t remember what country that was in, I’ll look it up for you.

Well, Greeney, all of those thing help out a great deal. But deception is a really good way to ensure those conditions are met.

Steath bombers and fighers are the ultimate in deception! Just when you think its a nice quiet night out, they just launched about 25 cruise missiles, and are closing in in total darkness.

Yeah, no kidding.

They're black, quite, and invisible to radar. Definitely the ultimate in deception.

Black ninjas would be pretty good. You can see them in the dark anyway so you add the ninja part and you’ve got someone who could disappear in daylight as well. :lol: :lol: :lol:

If it an American aeroplane: …And hit a wedding or small village. ;) :lol: :lol:

Or a Canadian convoy, featuring Canadian flags on Canadian Army vehicles.

And Ninjas... Yeah, in their time they were the ultimate deceptive weapon. BUT the difference is that it takes several people a whole lifetime of hardcore dedication and extended natural selection to get well trained ninjas like the ones you see in exaggerated movies.

Whereas an AF pilot doesn't require a whole life of insanely difficult conditioning to fire ordinance.
NOT to say that AF pilots don't have difficult conditioning, which does take a long time. But it's still easier then warriors of the past had to go through in order to be the best of the best. The difference is nowadays it's not who tries harder, it's who has the best weapons.
