What Peace Dividend?

Comment by Jim Campbell

January 11th, 2020

There will be no “So-called Peace Dividend” as has been suggested when a Democrat is in the Oval Office.

Forget the F-35 and F-22: These two fighter jets almost replaced them.

The money saved by a country when it no longer needs to make or buy weapons because the threat of war has grown less.

Following in the footsteps of President Ronald Reagan, President Trump seeks peace through strength, not war.

President Trump is committed to having the best and most updated military in the world.

The F-23 included some characteristics that may eventually find themselves in a sixth-generation fighter, or perhaps in the Air Force’s “deep interceptor” intended to support B-21 Raiders on the way to their targets.

For example, the V-tail aspect has been mentioned in some of the early conceptualization for a next-generation fighter.

And Boeing will undoubtedly hearken back to its experience with the F-23 when thinking about its next fighter.

For years, one of the two YF-23 prototypes sat in the Hangar of Unwanted Planes (more formally known as the Research and Development Hangar) at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, Ohio.

The YF-23 was positioned right under the last remaining XB-70 Valkyrie, the centerpiece of the museum’s collection.

Both aircraft have now moved to the newly opened fourth building of the museum, where they continue to represent alternative visions of the (past) future of the Air Force, visions deeply grounded in the industrial and organizational realities of American airpower.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
