Take the money for a couple of Raptors and use it to build asquadron of new A-10s. One heckuva lot more bang for the buck -- and far more useful in the wars we are now fighting.

And the Hog can do what we will have to wait until 2013 for the JSF to do. And we know the A-10 works -- very well...

I have to admit, that isn't a bad idea. At some point, missiles and robot aircraft will make the F-22 as vunerable as the next aircraft.

Put a bunch of Warthogs up, and increase our chance of getting the job done.

Got to go along with you on the Raptor/A-10 swap. I remember when the A-10 was on the block, but the first Gulf War resurected the program.

Ugly as it is, as simple and low-tech, it is one hell of an aircraft. Boots on the ground will back that up.
