The Air Force's Smooth Talkin' isn't Foolin' Ralph Peters

New York Post Online Edition:

Whoa boy, Ralph Peters does a knock down punch on the Air Force higher ups and takes no prisoners with this article.

Morally bankrupt, the Air Force is willing to turn a blind eye to the pressing needs of soldiers and Marines at war in order to get more of its $300-million-apiece junk fighters. With newer, far more costly aircraft than the Marines possess, the Air Force pleads that it just can't defend our country without devouring the nation's defense budget.

Meanwhile, Marine aviators fly combat missions in aging jets and ancient helicopters, doing their best for America — and refusing to beg, lie, cheat or blame their gear.
