The Mideasti blog covers a great little story of a young air force cadet asking a horribly tricky question of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

‘Since Iraqi airspace is a US declared no fly zone’ he began ‘would the US therefore shoot down any Israeli aircraft over flying Iraq?’

The Commander obfuscated about not answering hypotheticals and the great US-Israeli relationship but overall I wholly agree with Michael Collins Dunn commenting that

…I hope the AFROTC cadet enjoys doing his active duty at a radar station in northern Greenland or the South Pole, but it was a good question, wasn’t it?
