F35: Can’t Look Back In Anger
Bill Quick

The Air Force’s Awesome Attack Plane Has a Pretty Sad Replacement — War is Boring — Medium

“Note the actions the F-35 is incapable to perform,” said Winslow Wheeler, director of the Straus Military Reform Project at the Project on Government Oversight in Washington, D.C. “Among them long time loiter, low altitude observation of the problem, multiple gun passes with extreme accuracy.” These things saved American lives. The A-10’s replacement? Perhaps not.

I don’t know which is worse: Generals who are always fighting the last war, or Generals who are only fighting what they think will be the next war.

Although maybe we wouldn’t need to deep-six the Warthog if Barack Obama wasn’t doing everything he could to destroy the US military.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
