In this case

Indiana Jones and several 18/19th century UK "explorers" are well overdue a day in court for a slap on the wrist by the Magistrate.I guess the British Museum needs to actually start returning artifacts instead of reputedly arguing their ownership.

Flying Buses is this an episode from Dr Who??

Yep the kit will cost more than the ship that carries it thats if it isn't all cancelled by spending cuts in the time it takes to build her and the inevitable re-estimates of final cost which will only go up.As for the both the seasoned carrier crew which we no longer have and the full complement of ships to protect the carrier which we haven't got.........

Wasn't there a notion of "sharing" the carrier deck space with out allies not so long ago?

Arachnoid

ignore Air Traffic Control telling them to land while a pair of Eurofighter Typhoons take up station

Well if it were a book/film one was writing the pilot would have a flight plan logged to overfly the area,drop off radar with "engine problems" then fly himself and the accused straight to the airport with two ready made Ecuadorian passports in pocket.

Then again he could just wear a disguise [a Burka seemed to be a certain BBC reporters favorite garb] and come out the front door too..........

You guys should know by now

In espionage and politics in particular, nothing is ever what it seems.Its akin being back the the cold war era using time tested spying and infiltration techniques to get a squint of the other players cards before he plays them.The use of puppet like pawns and feints to achieve a goal even when the poor sap doesn't know they are but a part of the bigger agenda.

As for Iraq I'm sure their were multiple scenarios discussed in regard to what would happen after the withdrawal of troops and what better way to deplete an enemies forces and reduce its effectiveness than to use internal politics and rivalry get it to fight itself
