U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, is not finished in his fight to save future production of Lockheed Martin’s F-22 fighter jet.
A day after the U.S. Senate voted to kill funding for additional aircraft passed the 2008 fiscal year, Cornyn released a statement saying if the U.S. government does not want the jets, then permission should be granted to sell the fighters to allies abroad. ...
Cornyn added that arming countries such as Israel with the jets will intimidate bordering nations like Iran that are aggressive toward American allies.
Comment: Rather than intimidation, maybe it might cause more problems Mr. Cornyn.
At some lost point in US history we used to export machinery, farm equipment, tools, consumer goods, just to name a few, but today all we export is war and the related tools. Maybe if the States had representation in Congress we would be focusing on the economic health of our states and communities rather than furthering the international imperialism agenda.
