Has our government completely forgotten the fact of almost 8% unemployment and almost $16 trillion in debt? If the Brazilians decide we can't have any planes or parts, later, we will have a bunch of worthless, unflyable planes. Duh!
Why, given our fiscal problems are we giving Afghanistan anything? They will ultimately be used against our only ally in the middle east, Israel.
We should NEVER have anything important to our troops be manufactured by a foreign country!
