General Dynamics, (they make the Fighting Falcons) and Boeing's Osprey's and it's Stratotanker.
I am no authority on economics, but it seems to me we have lived in a war driven economy for a long time, long enough for us to have learned a lesson, but it seems not. We are arming a country that brought us the 9-11 terrorists. Now why are we doing that? Because they have oil.
Just a thought.
Instead of saying that, we are instead saying "we're sending a clear signal to Iran". How creative. Lets not forget these companies lobbies contributed heavily to President Obama's campaign and Romney's. (just in case)
These are the "job creators" our leaders are willing to invest in.
You would think after destabilizing the Middle East, we would have learned our lesson.
Our country can't agree on gun control except that we can still act like we are living in the wild west so lets just spread more violence world wide.
I can't wrap my head around the fact that we can't create a peace time jobs program for the unemployed in our own country. When are we going to invest in our own country other than making weapons?
Can we agree that there are enough weapons of mass destruction all over the world?
Does Prince Bandar need more war toys to play with? Remember, this was one of "W"'s besties.
The Boston Marathon bombers we have found out, are from a war torn country called Chechnya. I wonder how much of what they witnessed in that country contributed to the violence they inflicted on Boston?
When are we going to understand the that violence and war should not be a way of life?
Maybe when we get the money out of politics?
Here's some Forrest Gump for you.
