The bunch of Biggles supposedly running this country are living in a bygone era at our expense. In a time of budget crisis when expenditure is being cut in all areas they have committed us to purchase 60 fighter aircraft at a cost so far of over $20 billion. To my recollection ‘the winners’ of the last two significant wars, The North Vietnamese and the Taliban had almost nothing in the way of navy or air forces. One thing they did have were leaders that knew what they were doing, so I guess that puts us at an even greater disadvantage.
