If this is what we show, it makes me wonder what we're really testing.

IMHO what they are showing is the ability of the MIC to consume every other fiat or taxpayer US $.

IKE was 'right', in more ways than one!

Yes, Yes he was.... And now we are all quite literally paying the price for it.

Ike is my favorite POSTUS yes he was right

Now we are all quite literally paying the price for blunders

We spend more that the rest of the world combined on military

And when we were cutting taxes and adding debt rates were .25 now they are 5 %

This is what happens when you cut tax and spend

Bush Tax Cuts $1.5 T
Bush War in Iraq and Afghanistan $8T
Bush 2008 Financial Crisis $2T
Trump Tax Cuts $1.5T
Trump Pandemic Spending $5.4 T

Dont blame me I did not vote for these dunces

Our nation is FAR less safe today than in an age where we had 'secrets'.

I doubt the B2 was flying combat missions to Iraq from Florida.
Eglin AFB is where the USAF does weapons integration testing. That’s more likely.
What I -heard- was they were getting munitions at Eglin, this is of course a very old rumor. I was 17 at the time and busy with other things. At any case, we did see things all the time. If you Google "Gulf Breeze UFO" there are tons of things. At that time, I lived on the water on Pensacola Beach.

Traitor? Heck. I was too young to join the, my brother (who is a Marine) Pilot had PLENTY of kills on his list of accomplishments. One of his favorite stories is talking about the CH47 full if Iraqi POW's who were told they were being brought to Isreal. To save the US Tax payors some money most of the Iraqi's opted to "Free dive" at about 4000' has choices.

Well, I am certainly pleased to know that you have such a great inside track to all the secrets especially those sold to China. Have the trigraph gov agencies hired you to generate cover stories?

Only in America would you find a kid wearing $150 shoes, drinking at $8 coffee, typing on a $1200 cell phone, complaining on social media that he is oppressed and that capitalism has failed him.

Only in America would you find a draft dodger mishandling secrets and sharing secret Submarine info with an Australian Campaign donor then get on social media and cry that he is a victim and that his Justice Department FBI CIA and Judiciary has failed him

Isn't it actually "military industrial complex"? That's the standard uninformed whiner term....

Asking for a friend.
Lance Neward 4
That's actually a term coined by a retired general as he left the most powerful position on earth--Dwight Eisenhower in his farewell speech after two terms as POTUS (The first president to be term-limited). He also warned of the scientific-technological elite, using government funding to support them.
Charles Henry 2
I'm not arguing that, but to believe that a lack of military strength and technological superiority would be anything but a disaster is horribly naive.

Drill Baby, Drill. Frack Baby Frack. Strip mine the Earth until nothing but an empty shell is left.

Not any worse than employing child laborers/slaves to mine Lithium & other rare metals just so the self righteous eco lovers can drive their EV’s that’ll have to be junked later on because it’ll cost thousands if no tens of thousands to replace the battery when finally spent

Yeah, in about 35,000 years. Please, you can not be that stupid AND be on an aviation forum where we burn fuel like kindling.
