At this point they have no choice but to build the F-35 and keep trying until it's perfected. The older airplanes are too old and would be blown out of the sky by China and Russia's latest planes. We don't have enough F22s and they are Air Force only. The Navy can't fly them on carriers if they wanted to. A real conservative does not write stories complaining about the F-22, that is for Dems, progressives and statists. And there are plenty who have written the same stuff as this author who calls himself a conservative. TH has been infiltrated by too many from the enemy camp and they are clever too. It's very subtle, as I pointed out in the immigration column about Illegals supposedly going home to Mexico. What rubbish!!
