This ain't your daddy's war.

Can anyone seriously imagine grounding an entire aircraft type in World War II because one of them deconstructed in midair? I sure can't.

I'm not saying we shouldn't ground them. I'm saying that this is yet another example of our nation demonstrating that it's not at 'full military power' - which, to me, is what our military (especially the Air Force) is for. If you're not fighting to preserve core objectives (and by definition, if you can shut down a major component of your ground strike, you're not really as a nation doing so) then take a good hard look at why and where you're fighting.

Is this trip really necessary?
