I remember when a hostage crisis spawned a new TV show, Nightline.  Now it doesn’t even make the news, period.  Why?

What is the harm?

Story here.  Government at all levels is too big. The power we grant to government officials has gone to their head.  4 officers and 3 cars and a search warrant to take an opossum from a guy who had rescued it and was caring for it.   Do we really need a law forbidding this type of thing?

News reports indicate that Argentina is interested in buying Pakistani/Chinese JF-17s.  This would certainly be an interesting development.

And we need to be too.

Example 1

Example 2

Now, none of this is stuff the US hasn’t done, but the Chinese have already caught up technologically in a lot of areas.  There is no reason to believe that they won’t catch up in space, and quickly.

Apparently the Algerians have signed a contract to buy 14 Su-57s.  This marks the first foreign sale of these aircraft.  Algeria has a very formidable air force for its size.  I can’t wait to see the camo.
