Movie review: Above and Beyond (2014)

Above and Beyond is a documentary of the origins of the Israeli Air Force and its operation in the 1948-49 war.  While some footage uses CASA 2111 to recreate the Avia CS-199s, it still has plenty of archival footage and great interviews and stories.  It definitely has an pro-Israeli gloss to the story, but it still presents the history pretty down the middle.  I highly recommend it.

See here.  The US has a similar system as an anti mortar system that I believe is just about ready for deployment to Afghanistan.

I’ve heard little about this Israeli attack.

The UK just keeps getting a little crazier each day.  Seems to me one obvious problem with this is that there are numerous drugs that interact with pharmaceutical birth control and if the parents don’t know, how can they advise doctors in emergencies.
