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?
How snarky of you. The first 2sentences is a cheap shot. I did a hub with all the details on why we even lost WWII. BTW your final 2 sentences are not descriptive of winning a battle much less a war.
My pleasure to be snarky on this issue.
Once again no real content in your comments. You continue to do personal attacks instead of contributing. If I were doing the same, I would say that you & Nancy Pelosi have a lot in common. I do prefer to discuss the info rather than the per
Alright Brad. And you know that I read your hub on this as I commented there and disagreed. Where is there a personal attack? I attacked your definition of win is war. I still do. I do not do personal attacks and you know it.
"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." how is this not personal. And you really didn't comment on the content of my comment.
Brad that is totally a point on your contention not on you as a person.
Looking hard for attacks maybe? Look elsewhere. Increasing military spending in the percentages suggested is not even matching inflation.
