    Criticism is for those on the armchair. We needed those helicopters. My company uses them regular because I can't get air support as I need it.

    By the way. Great to be back.

    Oh, by the way. Great to be back after my 2nd banning. *winks* Alls well in Afghanistan despite what the peeps in media tell ya. Much more to tell, but, I ain't tellin' first. *winks*

    Wait for US Geological survey report, then wonder, "Oh, so that is why we are there."

    Ha-ha. Whoooooo-ah!

    Yes. You keep changing the subject to avoid admitting you are wrong.

    You changed the subject first to whether or not the government can stimulate the economy: http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1058814926

    Then you changed it when challenged to where the money came from:
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1058814956

    Now you are changing it to the issue of endless money:
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1058815012

    You constantly change the subject every time you get challenged.

    At least then the money would be reinvested into the U.S. economy rather than into the economy of our enemies.

    As opposed to how many UH-1 Iroquois Huey's?

    Furthermore, delays in training aren't helping
    If you can fly a helicopter you can fly a huey.

    and shipping these things would be a colossal pain.
    How much of a pain is it to put some boxes on a cargo plane?

    How does buying used American choppers create jobs in America? They're already built. There's no chopper dealership that will make a few bucks selling them. The spare parts are already stacked in warehouses, already built. Anything they need over there they'll be going from stock or building themselves.

    This thread is a great way to find the true partisans.

    edit: Unless you want the Afghanis flying brand new state of the art America hardware... at many times the price. So much for too much spending!
