As a young man who seeks to serve and protect the Constitution of the Untied States of America, it saddens and angers me when I see a beautiful weapon laid to rest before it’s time for reasons of politics and budgets.
In Obama’s rush to bankrupt the United States of America, the world’s most advanced War Fighter, the F-22 Raptor, has been laid in the ground.
For those unfamiliar with this beautiful piece of Aeronatuics, the F-22 Raptor is the world’s first true Stealth Fighter. On top of that, the Raptor is capable of acting in all of the following roles with no modifications, save a changeout of it’s weapon load outs.
Electronic Warfare and Countermeasures
Air Superiority Fighter
Airborne Early Warning Aircraft
In short, everything that the F-117, B-2, F-16, F-15E, F/A-18E, E/A-6B Prowler, etc.
In fact, the only small aircraft I wouldn’t replace with the F-22 is the A-10, because the A-10 has that beautiful chain gun built to penetrate the armor on a TANK, and the Harrier, because that is going to be replaced with the F-35 JSF.
So why is this amazing weapons system being scrapped? Because Obama needs that 350 Million for his Healthcare Plan. That’s right, Obama is scrapping the most potent tool for Freedom in favor of making us Dependent upon the Government.
Obama, you make me sick.
