Fort Wayne may lose A-10's. Oh well!

The Pentagon is considering removing the A-10's from Fort Wayne due to military spending cuts. The A-10 is a slow moving attack plane designed to withstand intense fire from the ground as it destroys enemy tanks. I would be upset by this move, except that enemy tanks have never been a problem here in the Midwest or anywhere else in North America.

Even if you're the type of person who stays up late worrying about hijacked airliners, the A-10 Warthogs won't help you sleep any better. With a top speed of 439 mph, the Warthog is actually slower than many commercial jetliners.

And even if you think government spending helps the economy, why not push for spending on projects that directly benefit taxpayers? Seriously, I can't imagine anyone of any coherent belief system thinking that A-10's in Fort Wayne are a great idea. But if you're out there, feel free to leave a comment below.
