This is NOT the place to discuss politics, it's an aviation forum. In addition, it's impossible to engage in a battle of wits when one of the combatants comes to the fray unarmed.

Everyone thinks that GPS is the great navigation system that we have and that is totally 100% in correct... Where it is very good and very accurate, must airliners (especially using FMS to Navigate) use DME-DME Navigation. GPS can tell a pilot if he is within 3 meters (10 feet), DME-DME Navigation utilizes up to 5 DME Stations changing freq very frequently to give an even more accurate location and quicker updates... Many a/c will use both in conjunction with each other. In the far north and common in Canada is "DR" displayed (different a/c have different wording) meaning "Dead Reckoning" or the plane does not know exactly where it is located with insufficient DME or GPS Data. - This will have little effect on our airlines and Military, but may inconvenience some GA a/c

GPS signals are commonly jammed during Nato military exercises, including here in the US

Russia will go out of its way to destabilize the NATO Alliance given TRUMPS proclivity of kissing Putin's rear end. Additionally Russian Frontal Aviation nips in and out violating Western Europe's airspace. This is dangerous because we cannot determine friend or foe.

I believe your assumption of Trump's kissing any one's ass' would be Trump's way of showing a BITE your ass off. If you don't believe Trump is FOR America and for the best that America can be, you're in the wrong country.

It's Putin's ring, not his ass that he's kissing.
Trump is for Trump, and America can tag along if it wants. If what America wants differs from what Trump wants, America can suck hind teat like ever other one of Trumo's 'enemies'.

Trump is definitely not for anything but himself, and if he thinks that kissing Putin’s ass (your word) will help him consolidate power, he will do it. If that isn’t painfully obvious you are beyond saving.

And if you think I don’t have the right to say that, you don’t know what this country is all about. It’s definitely not about worshipping Donald Trump, of all the stupid people...
