Re: VIF[F]ing?

However the F35 won't be usable in a future Falklands conflict.

The US company with the contract for the onboard avionics will have a significant share holding from the Argentinian teachers pension fund and so will cancel the runtime license and then Turkey will be negotiating a deal with Argentina for a new pipeline and so will refuse to do any servicing, and Boeing will be in court about bribes to Argentine officials and doesn't want any bad press...

We may have created the solution for perpetual peace
