F35—–The $1.5 Trillion Jet That Ate The Pentagon

There is no good US government defense system or equipment (SEE: The Myth of National Defense), but here is an example of how far the military-industrial complex can take things in absurd directions.

The F-35 is the most expensive weapons program in history, with a total cost of $1.5 trillion, that has turned into a total fiasco.

So here is an 8-minute documentary (with some cool footage of the thing flying, landing vertically, etc.) to give you the willies about how the system works, and what’s wrong with it.
