Forum administrator, "Wow, these people are really getting angry, they might start a rally for real soon."

Forum administrator2, "nah, they're just a bunch of armchair generals, they won't do anything if it means having to get up and move around."

That one dipshit on reddit that always comments on military related threads acting like they know what they are talking about because they watched Top Gun, played Call Of Duty 4 and War Thunder. Usually bashing the F-35.
I've played war thunder and once read an article on Aviation.com about the F-35, and trust me and my advanced experience, the F-35 is the worse plane ever made and can be shot down by a biplane.

Shut the fuck up, you're an Armchair General, you stupid neckbeard.
