#6 Indeed. As with the F-35s and Israel, why are foreign nations getting better versions of our hardware than our own armed forces?

#7 ....where's the graft in that?

Foreign governments expect quality American equipment for the money. Can you name anyone fired on the American procurement team for delivering something less than expected?

#8 Sigh. #7, no, I cannot. Graft is a very generous word at this point for our procurement procedure. Graft as recently as the 90s still regularly resulted in stuff getting done. It has gotten to be like the famous kleptocracies of Detroit and California.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
