  1. The stealth fighter transfer sounds like a good idea to me. Realistically, we are never going to be able to recreate a stealth fighter squadron in short order. This is a very specialized bird that needs lots of love and attention. Israel would love it…I would love to tape Iran’s response.

  2. The F117 is a good one! I’m with James…………can’t wait to hear and see the hot heads reaction if it happens! LOL!

    The laser story was interesting too. If only we’d spent some of that for debt on this instead of stupid bail out packages for corporate clones. Man……..there may be hope for a Death Star after all. I’m re writing my resume to apply for Imperial Storm Trooper now! Zap! Zap! Vreeeppp! Take that! Rebel scum!!!
