I sort of like Reddit. I really do. There is a great deal of good stuff to be found. But, man, are some of the posters idiots.
Here’s a high-rated story for today:
Here’s the article it links to:
Security and training company Blackwater USA confirmed that it has applied for a license to acquire one Embraer Super Tucano light attack trainer.
The acquisition is on hold pending licensing approval by the US government, a Blackwater spokeswoman said.
The aircraft would launch a new pilot training programme for Blackwater, which provides a broad range of training and operational services for military and law enforcement clients.
Reading the comments by the morons is sort of funny. What are the demographics of Reddit? 14-17 year old males, or so. Here’s a sampling:
–Why would they need a trainer if they were not developing an airforce? Executive thrill-seekers?
—I wasn’t aware they did training.
–private contractors 2.0 – now with airforce(tm) !
–I bet they can’t wait to go to Iran.
Kids these days…
