|Sea King Madness|
|Were I a Taliban soldier crouching by the side of the road nothing would terrify me more than the approach of a Canadian Sea King helicopter, for, by now, the news that these 46 old wrecks are at risk of dropping out of the sky at any moment must surely have reached even the most remote corners of the world. |
Yet, instead of menacing road-side bombers, these time bombs fly above our head almost on a daily basis.
Thus, to whoever is in charge: what the fuck are you thinking? Surely these aircraft should only be used for emergency missions, and surely they should only be flown over water. Will it take one dropping on a school in the North end before this urgent and utterly logical decision is made? Stop flying them over our heads. Now.
