Obama's "Change" Meant "Less Safe"
Mr President, what good does free healthcare, electric cars and the bliss of socialism do us if we are all dead?
The Airforce F-22 fighter is necessary to keep pace with Russia's current rapid development of new aircraft as well as China's buildup of new fighters...
The Heritage Foundation asks...
"So at what cost to our national security did Obama trade political momentum for his domestic initiatives?
Russia is expanding its fighter forces more than at any other time since the end of the Cold War. The Russians plan to field 300 Su-Fullback strike aircraft by 2022 and an additional 300 Sukhoi Pak fifth-generation fighters. Meanwhile, China has ordered an estimated 76 Su-30MKK Flanker-Gs and can produce an additional 250 under license, including at least 100 “knock-down kits” to be assembled in China. If China modernizes its 171 Su-27SK/UBs to the Su-27SKM standard and assembles another 105 Su-27SKMs under license, it will have roughly 626 multi-role fighters available for air superiority missions. This would place China in the same league as the U.S., which has 522 F-15A/B/C/Ds, 217 F-15Es, and a planned end strength of 186 F-22s."
Earlier this month, the Obama administration weakened our defenses on another front, agreeing to reduce the number of strategic launchers despite receiving no real concessions from the Russians on Missile Defense.
Had enough of Democrats' "hope and change" yet?
"You can join Governor Mitt Romney, Speaker Newt Gingrich, Republican Whip Eric Cantor, and Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and send the President a message that weakness invites aggression, not peace. You can join the 55,000 other Americans who have signed the 4% for Freedom petition which calls on the President and Congress to protect America by: 1) restoring missile defense funding; 2) giving our troops the equipment they need to complete their missions; and 3) not including war funding, maintain a minimum defense budget of 4% of GDP.
