54. I'm afraid you missed the point...

...about the training. I was speaking of their behavior in front of their controls, not martial arts. But you're right. Most retirees look like Harley Davidson ballast in a Toys For Tots ride within a year or two.

But your assumptions go too far when you say that 8 pilots in 4 different situations all had their throats slit while buckled in at the controls. And the tapes from Flt 93 show us that pilots were alive outside the cabin.

You don't have to be Chuck Norris. A carpet knife is not a problem until it's at your throat. It's not even really a stabbing or throwing threat. So imagine you're five feet inside the front door of your home facing an intruder who you've got a three-inch reach on and you're on your turf-you know the space around you intimately. You could instantly grab something in that area for defense. Good grief, even the back of a clipboard is effective against a carpet knife. No martial arts required.
