Defense and offense

Reading on the walk home from work:

A very interesting article on the recently tabled US defense budget.

Whenever I read stuff like this, I have a tiny inner struggle. My rather obvious political position is that we should spend this money far smarter than we do. And that a lot of it gets spent idiotically.

At the same time, there's still the adolescent boy in me that just thinks some of the toys are too damn cool. I love military airshows, and I spent all my pocket money, for a good portion of my childhood, on airplane models.

Ah, well.

This is the F-22A mentioned in the article linked above.
