How The Military-Industrial Fraudplex Works

The Senate on Tuesday stripped $1.75 billion for an additional seven F-22 fighter jets from the fiscal year 2010 budget.

The decision was met with strong opposition in Congress. With the F-22 being manufactured in or getting supplies from 44 different states, the plane gets broad support from congressmen and senators on both sides of the aisle.

Outsource production to as many locations as possible so as many Senators as possible will support the increased production.

The Lockheed Martin jet has never been used in Afghanistan or Iraq, but supporters contend it is needed to fight more sophisticated enemies who might confront the United States in the future, such as China or Russia.

If the current war scenarios and fictitious threats do not justify your product, talk up other future, largely fictional, threats and scenarios. Remember there will always be more wars. WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AT WAR WITH EURASIA.

They also note the thousands of jobs that will be lost if the F-22 program is halted.
"We put that many jobs at risk, not because the industry is failing, not because it is a bad piece of aircraft, but because the secretary of defense and the administration have decided this program isn't worthy of our support. So explain to those 90,000 people, once they lose their jobs and get laid off," Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Connecticut, said Tuesday.

The Military Industrial Complex must perpetually be given massive amounts of money for their products or people will lose their jobs canard must be constantly repeated. The only person that should lose their job is actually you Senator Dodd, you sniveling, corrupt, shill for the bankers and military-industrial complex.

Gates said Monday he'd heard no "substantive" argument for keeping the jet for national security reasons, pointing out that China has no planes that can compete with the more than 1,000 advanced fighter jets the U.S. will have by 2020.
Gates said that the gap between the two countries' aerial arsenals will only widen.

But even if we already have air superiority, there is no national security reason to produce more, and the gap is widening, Senator Dodd says we need to produce more or people will lose their jobs. We need to be more creative here Senator Dodd, I mean what if the Klingon's attack? We wouldn't have air superiority!

As Peter Schiff once said "Even the slaves had jobs, everyone in the Soviet Union had a job."
I look forward to Peter Schiff and Senator Fraud debating this very issue.

How many fighter jets do the "Terrorists" have?
How will we ever get air superiority over the "Terrorists" if we don't build more expensive and advanced fighter jets?

At $1.75 billion for an additional seven F-22 fighter jets from the fiscal year 2010 budget, the Jets are a real bargain at only 250 million a piece!
