Comment: As pointed out previously, the Air Force wanted to end the C-17 program years ago. The F-35 engine may have some benefits in long-term competition, but the benefits are probably not worth the initial cost. Ending the next-generation cruiser, on the other hand, may be a major mistake. Given the age of the Ticonderoga class, this decision likely leaves the Navy with a cruiser gap that may never be filled. Comment: The Obama White House continues its record of bad decisions, leaving NASA with no real reason to exist.

Comment: Results like these are always interesting to see compared to the predictable backlash of irate passengers once new security measures are enforced. Comment: Both planes were indeed able to meet their goals of flying before year end.

Comment: Withdrawing when the job is incomplete would be a short-sighted decision likely to result in long-term problems. This is especially true considering the likelihood of the Taliban forcing its way back into power and the nation again becoming a haven for terror. Comment: Battles between the Gripen and F-35 appear to be likely for the foreseeable future. The two planes are really meant for entirely different types of warfare, so it will be interesting to see how such competitions are decided.
