This is disgusting. All the money spent on supporting illegals or sent to Syrian rebels to establish a new sharia kalifate and we can't replace the aging aircraft our troops depend on. Priorities in this country have definitely gone azz backwards.

This is disgusting.

Aging doesn't mean incapable, upgrades will likely occur, and every "program manager" has his pet Jawa to try to sell the money managers and bring to fruition under his/her watch.

DOD is still flying BUFF's and UH-1's and AH-1's and CH-46's and the like, and they perform well within their mission parameters.

Meh.
