Comment: This effort is likely too little too late. Nonetheless, the scale of Obama's mistake is so enormous that every effort should be made. Comment: Criticisms of the V-22 have long been inspired more by political bickering than reasoned facts about its performance.

Comment: Grounding is probably premature, but Airbus clearly has its work cut out to correct this aircraft's disturbing flaws. Comment: A war on the Korean peninsula would likely be a scene of destruction the likes of which have not been seen since World War II. No side seems likely to desire that.

Comment: The US Air Force has said it didn't need any more C-17s years ago yet the political pork just keeps flowing. This wasteful spending could go toward much more critical defense needs such as another squadron of F-22s. Comment: These results aside, it appears the Rafale may have a huge advantage after a cozy deal negotiated by French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
