My mom sent me pics of the “Boneyard” at Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Tuscon, AZ. The dry weather makes it a perfect place to store old aircraft.
My response to her follows:
I’ve seen Boneyard before.
Most of those planes were F4’s (vietnam era) and B-52’s (korea, vietnam).
I suppose technically, they could be returned to service (with a fair amount of help), but it’s unlikely …
these planes are technologically out of date, and would probably be much easier targets for our enemies (no radar deflection, slower turn rates, slower speeds, larger radar signature, less accurate navigation and targeting methods).
I’m not really concerned about the “millions” of dollars sitting on the ground;
in my estiamation that is one of the GOOD things our tax dollars pay for.
I wish Obama would quit funding deadbeats and bankers, and start fully funding a missile defense (which Obama has cut spending).
We’re really getting to be “sitting ducks” and we cant count on the (non-existent) goodwill of our (Islamic fundamentalist) enemies to not try to kill us; they will do it as soon as they’re ABLE (read that: as soon as we LET them).
Unfortunately, I think Obama WILL “let them.”
They think we’re suckers for letting our guard down,
and they’re right. The only thing that MIGHT wake us from our slumber is a sucker punch (a nuke in one or more of our cities).
I pray that God will deliver Obama from this type of “play nice-nice” ignorance that will certainly kill us (litterally).
