With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

VIEW OF EARTH FROM SPY PLANE


See the Lockheed Martin U-2 spy plane promo video.

The U-2 was built to go higher than any other aircraft. In fact today, more than 50 years since it went into production, the U-2 flies higher than any aircraft in the world with the exception of the space shuttle.

It is flying more missions and longer missions than ever before, nearly 70 missions a month over Iraq and Afghanistan.

I must acknowledge though that the pictures are beautiful of the sky and Earth below and remind me that we live on this tiny satellite zooming through space that has no real boundaries, borders, or walls to keep people away from one another.

It's just a damn shame that we have to get these pictures from a source like Lockheed Martin who makes a mint developing ways to kill one another.

Peace now!
