The Secretary of the Air Force wants to send F-16's to Ukraine

And of course, Luckup will be more than happy to do a support contract for those jets... paid for by American taxpayers, of course.

Despite previous reports to the contrary, the United States is indeed considering sending fighter jets to Ukraine and training their pilots how to fly them, Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall says.

Kendall, speaking Wednesday at the Aspen Security Forum, noted that Ukraine is having to deal with its "right now problem" of ground-based fighting in the Donbas region, but he added that aircraft may also be needed, the Daily Mail reported.

"We'll be open to discussions with them about what their requirements are and how we might be able to satisfy them," Kendall said, adding that it is "largely up to Ukraine" to decide what type of aircraft it wants.

Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelenskyy has said he needs advanced fighter jets such as F-15s and F-16s.

Just last week, the House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act. The House's version of the legislation would provide $100 million to train Ukrainian pilots to fly U.S. aircraft.

In the past, Kendall has downplayed any idea that the United States would send A-10s to Ukraine, but he did not completely shut down such a plan at the Aspen conference, the Daily Mail reported.

Why don’t we continue to send all of our equipment over there just like Afghanistan so then when China and Russia invade the US we have nothing left.

No problem. Get them out of the Arizona desert, polish them up and send them over.

but what color dress was he wearing and did his purse match?

they already declared the war is over and resumed farming and moving shipments of grain between and throughout both countries. but lets not let any of that get in the way of more MIC money laundering
