Snip from a post on "interdictor" 's blog, maintained throughout the disaster from that data center inside NOLA:
Indeed, since Xmas 1982 I have believed that there was a "back up" plan in the event of the "glickums" being preemptively eliminated (by TU26/TU22M Backfire interdictor strikes, most likely) that would have enabled the US to launch retaliatory attacks that would APPEAR to be from UK soil.
Other than the stupidly broken Titans, I think the interdictor both varietys are a terrible 'innovation' to the game, because they do seem to deprive new players of the one role they had always traditionally done well in fleet work; Tackling.
So for your daily lefty fix, I suggest reading marrael natch, twistedchick and interdictor.
Babes you might have expected to appear on the list – chowyunsmut, for example – have not been nominated, while multiple male LJ users were, including, for example, interdictor, currently renowned for an entirely different type of webcaming and most certainly not female, and popular male LJer theferrett.
Their servers are hosted by the guys behind the interdictor livejournal from New Orleans where web cams, photos and horror stories from inside the city have been keeping lots of people up to date of what is really going on down there since this horrible situation started.
We have all the discrete Pride and Determination and target specificity Squabbles that go with the a three hundred year old Regiment of Foot, or a combined Marine Corps, or with a speedy and flexible Fighter / bomber / interdictor Squadron, or the long range capability of a Naval Task Force, or the secretive operations of a SAS, but without ANY of these useful formations.
