John Cornyn Really, Really Loves Lockheed, Ctd.


Don’t shoot the messenger, Wick. I am only passing along this e-mail. Your fight is with (former) five-star commenter Wes Mantooth, who checks in with this:

“4. No U.S. military personnel have been killed or wounded by an enemy’s air force since 1951.”

Really? Who’s drinking the kool-aid, Cornyn or Wick? Cursory research reveals Wick’s contention as, at best, sloppy, and at worst disingenuous:



It might be fair to say that the USAF has not suffered a combat air loss since the end of the Vietnam War, but that’s a significantly more restricted statement than what Wick wrote.

And I think this is why we can’t have nice things.
