Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

This concept plunges into depths of stupidity that Bayformers only barely peered into.

War Machine's design in IM2 is already patriotic, because it's treated like any other USAF aircraft. It's not just painted grey and black, but it includes the USAF heritage and modern logos PLUS the tail code for the 445th Fight Test Squadron, which operates out of Edwards Air Force Base (i.e. the base seen and ID'ed as such in the film).

When the POTUS or anyone from the State Department require AF escort, do they bother to repaint their fighters like Starscream's original toy first? This is a bigger fuck you to the Armed services than what the GOP's imagines are Michael Moores wet dreams.
Ignorance is forgivable,
Arrogance is reprehensible,
Narcissism is intolerable.
