    No need to apologize AF, the Taliban are animals!!

  2. JacktheJarhead says:

    Why should they apologize? It’s the Freakin’ TALIBAN! I know Barry loved them, but screw those guys! I agree, Own it Air Force!

  3. CPT11A says:

    Of course the people who do things like run military Twitter accounts are over-sensitive, politically correct vaginas.

    Let them be. The killers, and those capable of such, are needed in the actual fight.

  4. The Other Whitey says:

    What needed an apology?

  5. oldgeezer says:

    The Air Force loses grenades, a machine gun and misplaces nuck war heads (all in my home sate). The most important thing they have to do though is to apologize for a funny tweet. Strange times we live in. I always wondered about the AF.

  6. OWB says:

    The only apology needed is for the apology.

    No apology is ever needed for speaking the truth. Every once in a while, an apology can be appropriate for having told the truth inartfully or in an unnecessarily hurtful way, but not for having said the truth.

  7. SgtBob says:

    What’s next? Will the AF apologize for killing the SOBs?

  8. OldManchu says:

    That tweet was so bad ass right up until the apology.

  9. SFC D says:

    But did the Taliban targets actually HEAR the BRRRRRT before their shit was in the wind?

  10. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    PC running amok.

  11. Mason says:

    Da fuk? Now we”re worried about offending people we’re trying to kill?

    Original tweet should be brought back. Mattis, where are you?

    • AW1Ed says:

      Remember in the Clinton era, Billy and staff were horrified at the “comments” Ordies were chalking on bombs being readied for use, and demanded the practice be stopped?

      Same stupid shit.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      Mattis is probably having a long, one-side “conversation” with the AF CoS that is starting with, “WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOUR BALLS?”

  12. Ex-PH2 says:

    Does this hasty apology for doing the job properly warrant a smackdown from me?

    What a bunch of ninnyhammers!!!! No wonder people call it the Air Farce.

  13. Dinotanker says:

    Completely agree with you ALL! WTF is there to apologize for?

    I seem to remember laughing my ass off when I saw the meme showing the B-52’s with the American Airlines “AA” of the tail. I think it said something like now providing direct flights to Afghanistan.

    Put the Tweet back up Air Force!

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      The B52 pic with airline markings was -awesome-.

      Someone go find the Public Affairs gelding that withdrew that tweet and hand him a floor buffer. Find the original poster and give him a couple of energy drinks and the keyboard.

    “Off we go into the wild blue yonder,

    Climbing high into the sun;

    Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,

    At ’em boys, Give ‘er the gun! (Give ‘er the gun now!)

    Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,

    Off with one helluva roar!

    We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!

    Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!”

    Tweet that along with the original tweet.

  15. Atkron says:

    What the fuck?

    It isn’t like they drew a sky penis…

    🙂

  17. Sparks says:

    If it were up to AF PC Police, A-10 attack runs would be followed by “We’re So Sorry” leaflet drops.

    Someone left his balls in his wife’s purse and his brain in the cupboard above the kitchen sink.

  19. Martinjmpr says:

    The “apology” is ridiculous but if I were a twitter type it would be difficult for me to resist making a snarky comment like “Oh, so now the AF is proud of the A-10 it’s been trying to get rid of for 20 years because it’s not ‘sexy’ enough?”

  20. RetiredDevilDoc8404 says:

    I thought the A10 was SUPPOSED to break shit and mess shit up? WTF is the Air Force worried about what the freaking goat dating Taliban and their butt buddies think (or if they’re offended) for? This PC crap is way out of control… Hey, AF PIO MAYBE instead of policing your tweets for political correctness you might want to keep better track of your machine guns, ammo and nukes – here’s a hint, losing track of them will trash your career a whole lot surer than an offended goat fucker hiding in a cave in the ‘stans. Just a little something to think about.

  21. AW1Ed says:

    The apology just gave the original tweet that much more exposure. Another misread by the Air Force- if they had just ignored it, the tweet would have faded into obscurity on its own.

  22. FatCircles0311 says:

    That was actually funny. Then they ruined it by being major pussies.

  23. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    The USAF apologized for putting the fear of God into terrorists. That is one fuqued-up approach to warring. Here’s a news item for PR Asshole who apologized. The USAF blows up people and things up or out of the sky. It’s mission is to win. It’s something no one should apologize for, even a pencil pusher whose greatest risk is a paper cut and traffic congestion to/from the Pentagon.

  24. JURRASICHM says:

    The Air Force training squadron here has “Fly, Fight, Win” on the side of its building. Maybe they should change it to Fly, Fight, Apologize.

  25. jonp says:

    Boy, it’s going to take some time to get those Obama Ass Kissers out of the Chain of Command.

    The AF should have said “Hey, Goat Fuckers. Our call to prayer sounds like BRRRRRRRT”

  26. Green Thumb says:

    Its the Air Force.

  27. 5JC says:

    The Palestinians and many of our “allies” apologize right after they kill or help our people. Seems the least we can do…

  28. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Hey. This has a few good things in it. My favorite is actually off the article’s topic of hating the Air Force It’s a quote from Curtis LeMay: “The Soviets are our adversary. Our enemy is the Navy.”

  29. ETCS (SW/AW) (Ret) says:

    This is where it all started to go wrong, when we started apologizing for being America. War machines kill people and break things. What the fuck, do they think we tickle the Taliban into submission?

  30. rgr769 says:

    Well, eight years of King Putt, and it looks like the progs have completely pussified large portions of our military. But then who knew we had military twitter-twats.
