According to Gen. Nicholson, the new policy refrains from attacking the poppy fields because, it said, farmers are often forced “to grow the illicit crop.”

The article says it is “estimated that opium production in Afghanistan had increased by 87% in 2017” – which supplies “85% of the world’s opium.”

What seat?

Voluntary compliance is not an option.

We can seat you the easy way or the hard way

Fly the Friendly Skies… take your chances!

New and improved: Frequent Flier re-accommodation service

Special packages for S&M passengers

We offer accommodation, re-accommodation, and ‘nose bleed no seats’

Philosophy – consumer beware

“United” Airlines: we’ll rip you out of your paid-for seat for a UA hommie, whenever we want. We’re tight like that.

Frequent-Flier miles don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got a seat!

Imagine if that was a woman passenger who did not comply to an order… or a black woman getting dragged out like that? Gasp.
