Dear Editor,

I was recently introduced to your service and thought it was quite good - until I read your pathetic comment on how the pilot of the Chinese plane involved in the recent incident did something the "Wang Wei".

What the fuck? That guy held his e-mail address up to other american pilots in past confrontations and was a pure quality bloke. No matter your political leanings.

The pilots involved in this type of activity know exactly what they are doing. You know that, and if you don't you're a fucking amateur. And if you do know that, then you are, quite simply, sucking ameriKan cock.

The Chinese shot down an un-manned ameriKan spy plane in the same area in Feb.1971, I suppose you were aware of that? Of course you weren't. I hate ameriKa as you can probably tell, but I am no communist. I thought you guys were above this politiKal shit, but obviously not.

"Biting the hand that feeds IT"? Nibbling at ameriKa's heel sounds more like it

(I would normally just tell you that you're a bunch of arseholes, but I reckon you'd just pick up on that feature alone.)

And I promise you, the apparent aggression/anger that you may infer from this mail is matched by my ability to reply, so I challenge you to publish this -
