Pentagon concludes oxygen supply behind F-22 breathing problems

Jul 24, 2012 Full story: Reuters 11

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta approved plans to send a squadron of Lockheed Martin Corp F-22 fighter jets to Japan, a step toward lifting flight restrictions on the most advanced U.S. warplane after the Air Force ruled out that contaminants were causing some F-22 pilots to get dizzy at the controls.

Another failed, bloated, overpriced dog produced by the welfare bums at American Defense Industry, Inc. How many trillions must we waste on this crapola before the people rise up and say "ENOUGH!"

Time to shut down the "Defense" establishment and sharply curtail the military-industrial-security complex.

But, but, but, we can't take any money away from
"defense" spending because some one might lose their job.

It's no longer the defense establishment. It's now
the jobs establishment.

Poor Eisenhower (a fine man and the last honest Republican), must be spinning in his grave.

All new weapons systems have a few glitches at first. I am old enough to remember the old B47 and its problems. I remember the F111 and its problems. Hell, even new cars have a few problems at first but look at the results. Why do you anti-military people think these planes are going to Japan? Ever hear of that new nuclear threat called N. Korea? Where the newest and best might be needed to respond to the arms from China?

I hear of new "threats" all the time, that's how the military-industrial complex (was Eisenhower "anti-military," you pinhead?) justifies its wasteful existence.

Somebody check Obama's oxygen supply. He's been dizzy at the controls ever since taking office. Just could be Moochelle's fart gas from rich White house food that's displacing his O supply.
