Your tax dollars super sonically flying out of your pocket
While ‘Cans are losing their jobs, houses, and struggling to make ends meet, US government gang bangs middle class, giving kosher DP via expropriation of federal reserve notes and offering free international shipping for orders sent to the apartheid state of Israel.
Golly, I sure do hope and pray those million dollar flying machines from Lockgreed War Startin’ can take the punishment of baseball sized obsidian projectiles fired from the sinewy flappers of pre-pubescent Palestinians!
Typically, Israhell military merchants blanch at the free price, insisting on lifetime oil changes and desert-side assistance.
Despite US Paying for Them, Cost Sparked Debate Among Israeli Defense Officials
Israeli government officials confirmed today that they will go ahead with plans to “buy” a number of F-35 stealth fighter jets from US military contractor Lockheed Martin. Reports suggest the deal will be worth $2.75 billion, making it one of the largest single arms purchases ever.
The high cost of the F-35s made the deal controversial among Israeli defense officials, which is perhaps surprising inasmuch as the Israeli government won’t actually be paying a dime for the warplanes.
Rather the entire cost will be covered by the US government in the form of military aid, meaning the US will be pasying Lockheed directly and delivering the warplnes to Israel for free.
The F-35′s enormous costs have made it hugely controversial in the US as well, though the question of giving Israel a number of the planes does not appear to have been questioned at all. The planes are expected to be delivered in 2015, assuming development goes according to plans.
