    A pretty accurate view. I never got the straight scoop on POTUS negotiating with Boeing. But the indications are he has at least made progress with AF 1 and fighter jets. Perhaps an increase is not so needed. Efficiency is.

    Brad as long as you are the only one defining wins and losses, you are right on the wars -- a long view and you are very wrong. Did we stop the Domino effect in north and south Pacific? Is the Caliphate larger or smaller?
