Canada should just be leasing these aircraft anyway. Who is Canada National Park kidding? We are completely integrated with the US in the most
important aspects of life anyway, hockey and television. Why carry on the pretense of independence in the military?
If Canada wants to play the part of America's "mini-me" and contribute billions of dollars to America's effort to bring a quick end to
civilization as we know it, we should be negotiating for a branch of the "skunkworks" up here. Tell the Americans we will build any kind of R&D
facility they want, to help bring the cost of their air operations down. That way we get something useful out of this tap dance, advanced technology
and training for engineers and technicians in the latest black magic.
We will help build the crap but we don't want to own. We'll lease some of the newest model whenever they roll off the line.
We shouldn't be buying silly toys at tens of millions a copy, especially if they don't work right.
