Fly the friendly fire skies

This just struck me as funny.

I have a "frequent flyer" account with United Airlines. I know, I know, they are the WORST. But back when I used to work at Disney they had a deal and so all of my work travel was on United and I racked up a nice chunk. Anyway, I just received my monthly mileage update email. They tell me how many miles I have and then list a bunch of offers to increase my total.

This month included the following "enticing" destination.

Earn up to 10,000 bonus miles between the U.S. and Kuwait --
Fly one of our three weekly nonstops from Washington Dulles
to Kuwait City and earn up to 10,000 bonus miles.

So, if I fly into a war zone I can earn enough miles to get 1/4 of a free ticket? OOOOO sign me up!
