F-35 in the news

Interesting to see in a report in today's StarTribune, Weapons Makers: the case for defense, noting that progress on the F-35 fighter "is years behind schedule and stratospherically over budget".  One note of good news is that global spending on weapons went from a record $1.7 trillion in 2008 down to $100 billion.  

Another interesting statistic from this article - the Pentagon's budget is as big as the next 16 defense ministries COMBINED.  Wow.  We've got the world's finest military industrial complex money can buy!
