HeHeHeHe “quite proper” You fuking people are a joke. Them Turks are up to no good. One of these days our evolution is going to take us to a point that we will have a world justice system that will handle you perverts and your perverted activity. Air to ground is strictly offensive. Offensive war is against international Law. Do you think that active material support of offensive war is not also illegal not to mention immoral? LOL
