You know. Yes well you know we talked yesterday about her friend Brian Williams and he was. Probably confused yeah. Am for twelve.

And there are they're surrounded by backup troops for three days. He won in the helicopter and he isn't one following it went safely to a neighboring country and repair them out of it and sees me and excoriated on social media. From one only in his pictorial need to do this but. Brian Williams RPG's her reminds me of the one time I was wounded in the battle of Stalingrad they have. A picture from that battle with his face superimposed over school. Yet another wanna test and patsy. Another one of him is the first when the first astronauts Apollo eleven I think it was land on the moon. And his face is superimposed over one here astronauts. Get the footprints from the moon Brian Williams quoted as saying that's my footprint. They've got his head superimposed. Over Superman and finally I'll.

Wow you have one I think we should say today is Tom Fitzmorris is birthday is well. And I should spend some time talking about Tom Fitzmorris what a good friend he has and I'm glad I am that it is very that it is very Elway came up. No ice and all I should be or should we gotta love song coming up this hour when you hear it if you called person identify it at the number I'm gonna give you when a fifty dollar gift card. The pro flowers not not be in order your flowers get it done for Valentine's Day relax enjoy -- run no. And late in the alliance to get the line where she loves coming back dynamite lines about missile crisis Jordan thing on WW. Hi Johnny Tucker it is 7181. Big weekend of money draw. And unfortunately the world doesn't realize that and and a lot of horrific things go on in one of which is that com. During alive. The album the Jordanian quietly put him in the cage doused him with that and then flammable substances and we know chorus that happened Jordan has. Launched airstrikes. And it's invented dance and tried. Eliminate racism at least lessen the threat Mike Lyons different major Mike lines India's military analysts humans is right now morning major. What kind of be nice to have you can tell me about. Jordan's responsiveness. And and does is raise the Annie for everybody in and ices does something hours of the imagine anything worse. Yeah George response has been at a fever pitch. Dave's increased military sorties. That the phone airstrikes in that block which is the center of gravity for. I didn't videos they've displayed. Their ground troops getting ready to train so they seem to be unfortunately for the now. To get revenge for their pilot that was so brutally stabbing murder earlier in the week that you can literally in the weeks. So. It will just judge Jordan him have much of an army are they ready to march in. And and engage him Dunn had Dunn can bat come that are on the ground combat abbey college. They didn't have its. Capable and very active military. And I and the question is whether it will be enough I think that other coalition forces should be involved with this they're going to meet with just tickle support. That to detail ratio combat forces it is very high and so while it might have. And with a 75200000. Active duty troops and it probably need at that. And number. You support them with regard to their logistics and operations. Played others note to undertake aside Arabia and Turkey continues to an assignment and it doesn't seem to stop Jordan I think full well into La clippers shortly. Where does the United States. Come into play in all of this. We will continue to provide really air support and additional airpower prosper. Refueling. Intelligence. And and and analysis of the situation but then we continue to really lead from behind in this regard. No ground troops I don't see it's sending in their although we did send analyst CSR combat search and rescue mission and put that in in the northern part of Iraq. We should get this the wrong time or just not sure why it's taken the thought about that the piloting murdered for that to happen. In order to decrease any kind of search and rescue mission from hours to minutes which is really have to communicate and that could American pilot in that cage. We've got to remember that it's up. Is the United States flying missions over Syria. Actually flying combat missions. And also. Refueling missions so not via craft fairs and even world and in no there's not does that mean they're accepting an offense that contest here at the controls. Back that could happen something could dent could take place can that be ready enable anybody to rescuing part of the command. Blows my collection because certainly don't want you know album did did creep ordain any thing are or not that anything we say has anything to deal with a blood. I mean given a number of of the flights that day of US aircraft over Syria is it inevitable let one of our violence has captured. Yeah that's been. It's a question only because. You know we're gonna minimize risk as much as we can it would be an accident it would have to be multiple things and have to go wrong. And I think it's fun you know captured moved. That that pilot went down and were able to get to him before before. The enemy did it's a very austere place that part of the world it's wide open and then it would be really a race that the question is. The end definitely and technology we have we got much more technology to locate these these pilots. It would have to be very fortunate situation for them once played north in the capture or process and. In terms of cruelty it seems like you know ices up the anti when when they burn this form analyze and he did does that portend ices do you do and even. Ruler or things of prisoners and releasing and on. I think so I think we've got to be prepared for and and it's cruel I've read reports on. They literally go on social media outlets and hey they ask there there's twisted following for. I'm more suggestions as to what they can do and then you've seen. Dismemberment till now and I mean you know he had insists wasn't gruesome enough for for everybody in and it just you know again this is bloodthirsty band. And that that need to be you know and you know proposes. District in an imminent threat United States and that's because about that but that you allies. They do to the region our interest in there and we've got to fight. This battle there well there. Major I appreciate your time unfortunately it and the conversation and then you'd mated understandable to 90. I am. I have a weekend major Mike lines devious military analysts haven't when he three I think when you talk organizes that is. And I don't know of any. Group that has been more evil and I don't think it comparison and Nazis. Without credit I really do you think that's close 723 timely traffic in that we units are it's.

And Jordan the you know today's birthday he's pestering me and I is kind of weird. But he asked me to tie my teacher that I am wearing is tightly as they could UN OT shared MIA had tied as tightly as I could. And then sing happy birthday to a game like Marilyn Monroe did did JFK. Which I think. Is it kinda weird request. I don't know if the idea is to make him feel like president Kennedy I don't know if the idea is. To make him feel.

DA have something about Monique drug that you hate is that the letters and and we talked about this every year in terms of you know I guess like a stadium is built with the higher seats. A sending or a movie theaters are built like that now I never did get the logic of putting the latter's in the front. It would seem like the place to put the latter uses in the back because then you can see over everybody else. He had people without letters places stand. And I still think because you're hired the people that are there. On a floats will throw the stuff to you and your kids that there are certain on top of latter. So let's talk somewhat agree here T six so money 71 big weekend. Coming up. And you plan to get involved.

Mardi Gras day end they had people had been up all night drinking and had new intention of stopping Hank in Metairie Geiger morning on DeVon WL. Yeah a little bit separate and look at about ten years subtle double you could about. Ten feet from the pretty well how old was. About eight years old real contributed crowd and all of a sudden walk upon people to try to hit the ball the Jews from the crater. Oh look look at brats we should be through the back but it seemed like you get close calls with a parade route. Get people ball and crawl it all Q1 I think there. Tom you know I thought the city hits in new regulations on and it is like tail thing I never could again who has if you bring crawfish and parade route. Barbecuing I can see like tailgating so long users setup. A safe distance from embody but I think you Vietnam one of these and that's the other thing we need to talk about tents because.

Parking and we get a response but I would like to know. Center Greg will join us at 945. He'll help us out with what you can setup wary can set up. Did you understand the the whole concept of putting the latter's in the front anything coming up with Eminem back. Now there's people root. Never nowadays that they can't sub sixty from the parade route so if you want it appropriate yet stand sixty feet back because. I think at Eilat has really put intense sort like he can ever. 120 liberty put up any barricaded all the wood tables are you really can't even walk on a praise.
