A few months ago Gates pointed to the F-35 and said we could cancel the F-22. What does he now know about the F-35 that he did not know then? Of course Russia just announce that they would start cranking out their fifth generation stealth fighter. Does Gates even understand what department he is is suppose to lead? Idiot!

The Russians aren't close to cranking out anything. That test flight was a publicity stunt to show they had wings and an airframe. A combat-capable radar-evading craft with the effectiveness of an F-22 and the requisite logistics tail supporting it isn't going to happen anytime soon.
