Just read a post on another site where the writer referred to " shooting ducks in a barrel" This strange mixture led me to a site where such "mangulations" are noted.

There's an abject refusal to concede defeat.


Talking about Red Bull team in Formula One racing. Don't think "abject" was really the word the journo wanted ....." stubborn", maybe ?

A " decimated " airliner ......... now that's different !!

QUOTE
There was no sign of survivors at the crash site, where reporters saw horrific scenes of carnage with dozens of mutilated corpses and body parts strewn through the smouldering wreck of the decimated Boeing 777 airliner.


Seems like a horrific case of mistaken identity for the poor passengers and crew, What a disaster.

Cheers
