Is the USA Selling Our Defense? has an article about the purchase of our Bradley Fighting Vehicle, which is being used to fight the Iraq war, to BAE Systems Plc, Europe's largest defense contractors. Does anyone remember when we promised to sell Taiwan 4 Aegis', but Germany determined they didn't like who we were selling them? (I think it was Germany. It was over 4 years ago.) They would not make the nuclear subs that we needed. Now this? Please read the article. I am too upset to read it. Please let me know if we need to worry.
