One month after the US Air Force declared the F-35 combat ready (try not to giggle) it is now grounded. Shocking I know. Who could have predicted such a thing.
One month is pretty impressive for the most expensive weapon system in the history of the world. You can't really expect much more than one month.
Here Is how it works.......Tax payers pay a fortune. Private contractors pocket the fortune and provide the sh*ttiest, cheapest, low quality garbage they can produce.
Then when the defense department realizes what they have been given is a big pile a steaming dog sh*t the private contractors are given a second pile of money to redo the work a second, or third, or fourth time.
It is a great business model. In business school it is taught as fraud. Completely acceptable.
