The F35 is a chiwawa in a Dogfight

Failure to govern is epitomised in the F35. There is a good argument to be made for a nation, especially the USA to be armed to the teeth perpetually. There is IMHO a more compelling argument that such a policy is wasteful and ultimately a financial catastrophe for the nation. 

The F35 combines the fight or flight instinct with a huge tailwind of corruption and committee design. The main design feature of the F35 is that at least one part of it is has a lobby group in every congressional district.

Now it is alleged that a deliberately handicapped 1970's tech F16 clubbed a payload free F35 like a baby seal.

Things go on until they stop. The F35 will turn out to be the greatest weapon ever built to take down the military industrial complex.
