Pentagon hails Japan's F-35 order
Sure, now that we have spent all of our money on R&D for this unneeded new stealth jet fighter, let's just share it with the entire world! During FY2011, we spent
$11.4 Billion on the Joint Strike Fighter
and it still is not complete and has many problems with it.
Again, when is the next war, in which we will need such advanced technology and participate in dog fights ala World War I, going to occur? With our current technology, I am positive Snoopy will still defeat the Red Baron.
Why are we funding this program, but are considering cutting counter-IED research while troops die in Afghanistan?
