    Mr. TSP,

    When you crosslink images from that IMPawards.com, it puts its own stand-in graphic in place.

    You are full of fail.

    Sorry, I'm not buying any list that has us barely above Gaza/West Bank. Are you kidding me?

    That's a list of total points given by Jane's. On the complete list (if you'd checked the links), you can see that the U.S.A. has 93 points.

    Did you read it?

    We weren't barely over Gaza/West Bank, we were well clear of them. As in a one-seed against a 16-seed in the NCAA tourney type of clear. Our percentile was 93, their's was 27.
