"WASHINGTON – The Senate voted Tuesday to halt production of the Air Force's missile-eluding F-22 Raptor fighter jets in a high-stakes, veto-laden showdown over 's efforts to shift defense spending to a next generation of smaller, single-engine F-35 Joint Strike Fighters." ~Associated Press
Okay, I have to say that this is about to drive me to insanity. The Raptor was the best fighter in the world, and it is now to be replaced by the inferior F-35 JSF. They dropped the Raptor because it was too much money for too much plane, but I think every drop of defense spending should be in strengthening our Navy and Air Force superiority. I believe we are spending too much time and money on "boots-on the ground" training and fighting, and not enough on first-response technology, such as the Raptor and Hornet fighter craft.
