3. I'm confused too

Not only did I hear him SAY F-35 JSF several times - there was a photo of one as well. I didn't see or hear about any Sukhoi or Migs of any Russkie aircraft.

7. That may be. But he talks on RT

the same way he does on FSTV. I don't see a conflict. IF it just so happens that what Thom details is good for Russia, so be it. NINETY MILLION a copy and counting? That's just plane lunacy.

5. Our Jets (F-35) are "killing" us...

Right in the bottom line, y'know a TRILLION $$$$ for a cold war obsolete group of war toys, not making us safer, but broker and of course a few fat cats keep getting much more fat. Ike had no idea of how absurd and obscene the Military-Industrial Complex would become...it ain't right!
