Wait, what? An F-16 capable of carrying near 18,000 lbs of weapons and flying at mach 2+ is replaced by a drone flying at 240Mph carrying 3800lbs? Well, I'll be danged if someone in the DOD should not be fired for that decision. I could see it if they replace a squadron of A-10s with hundreds of these for close air support, but F-16s?

And the true irony here is that The Boys from Syracuse used to be an A-10 unit before they went to F-16s. And what did they do with them when they went to the Gulf back in 1990? They hung gun pods underneath them.

It's stupid going both ways. In the good old days twenty years ago, you had three cars in front of you, told the nice person at the booth that you were going to the ballet, and you got waved through. Now, you get a baseline interrogation. And if you say "work", you get to talk to Immigration. C'mon Canada, I thought we were friends?
