    U.S. Marine Corps releases Al Qaeda Terrorist

    U.S. Marine Corps releases Al Qaeda Terrorist - I can't believe it!!!!!

    The U.S. Marine Corps today announced that it has released a senior Al Qaeda terrorist after questioning him extensively for 27 days while being held prisoner aboard a US Naval aircraft carrier in the Arabian Sea .

    In a humanitarian gesture, the terrorist was given $50 US and a white 1962
    Ford Fairlane automobile upon being released from custody.

    The attached photo shows the terrorist on his way home just after being
    released by the Marines...

    They could have used a daiwu or kia you know, a piece of oriental rubbish, there's not enough classic cars left to waste on terrorists.

    A Holden's good enough for him - don't waste a good Fairlane. (Either that, or use a '65.)
    Thank God we're not getting all of the government we're paying for!

    A reply to this same thread on another site:

    The car is actually an Old Jag, fitted with Nitrous and beat $100K+ Porsches, Ferraris, and other super cars in a quater mile run. The ship is actually part of the British Royal Navy, not the US Marine Corps

    Never saw a Jaguar with those proportions. European cars rarely used that width/length ratio. That's an American design, and no older than the 1960s.

    Hate to bust yer bubble steve, that's the USS Enterprise, CVN 65 ( see it on the end of the deck? ) And that is a Ford Falcon, look at the tail lights, huge round, like a jet exhaust, early 60's I'd say, back when the car companies were infatuated with anything to do with rockets and jets ( fins, tail lights, etc made to look like aircraft bits ) Tell yer buddy he's dead wrong, no jag had a tail light like that

    Here is the UK's badacre carrier compared to a US super carrier. There is no way the car is going off a Brit carrier.

    The Limeys have a Q.E. class on paper but for now this is what they got. The John C. Stennis could carry the Illustrious piggyback.





    Here is a link to the UK's planned carrier.

    A bit better than what they have now I'd say. Could you imagine what would happen if these two ships ever went at it? The Limeys would be havin supper wif Davy Jones

    BD, even at 65000 tons that new brit boat would be nearly 40000 tons lighter than a Nimitz class.
