Israel excepts gift of a trillion $ of F-35s

 http://news.antiwar.com/2010/09/16/following-fierce-debate-israel-decides-to-buy-f-35-warplanes/

 

  Yah, it says it is only a few hundred billion, but that's the final bill over what they claim- the un-needed boondoggle will cost and the cost in blowback from those who will be victims of the racist regime--endless war.

Bad idea to let the Israelis have aerial equality with the US. Sure hope we aren't giving them the top end avionics.

 

Actually, the only possible justification (other than corporate profits, jobs for certain districts etc.) in creating a new generation of fighter planes is to make sure that we can knock out the F-16s and 15s that the Israelis, Saudis etc. have if need be.

I suppose this has to do with the recent discussion about keeping the heat on Iran. With high end F-15s going to the Saudis then you probably have to keep Israel happy with a superior plane.

 

Guess we could probably take out most of the Israeli air force on the ground with cruise missles if need be.

 

The game is on but there will be blowback, sometime, somewhere just like with the Shah, Saddam, Taliban. On and on.
