    What the hell is going on here?

    Existing contracts should be canceled, e.g., the Presidential helicopter contract with Lockheed-Agusta-Westland. Why should US taxpayer dollars be spent to develop EU helicopter technology? Will the US Navy please explain? Why did Sikorsky not get this contract? It is the US Navy that awarded the Presidential Helicopter contract to the LAW joint venture. It is worth a staggering $6.2 billion; $3.6 billion for a fleet of 23 helicopters and the rest for research and development!! WTF? That’s $274 million per delivered helicopter!! This is outrageous and must be stopped. http://www.iht.com/articles/2005/01/30/news/copter.html Was this contract a reward for participating in the Iraq Coalition?

    France appears to be trying to create Eurasia, Eastasia, and Oceania as the three spheres of power. I just have one question...WHY???

    What the hell is your problem with Britain. The arms embargo your talking about is a European embargo that was enforced during the cold war.Times change and now the EU feel they can remove their embargo.Its not an American embargo or a world embargo so why should we ask permision to do so. You really are not from this planet are you.As for the roter blades being built in Britain ,WOW , big deal.The RAF has just replaced the Lynx attack helicopter with YOUR apache helicopters.The munitions for this is being bought from Manitoba in Canada. Our navy is kitting itself out with YOUR cruise missiles ensuring more work for American labour, Now do i have a problem with any of this? No i dont. But then you hate the Brits dont you Onedomino.I mean the last time we spoke you started telling me i was anti semitic just because im European.Started posting links to newspaper articles proclaiming all Europeans as jew haters.Well let me suprise you idiot, if you type in the same thing in your search box enquiring about America then you shall get the same rubbish appear.Does this mean all Americans are jew haters.No of course it doesnt so why do you believe it when it appears about the Brits
