The Air Force has too few aerial refueling tankers to support a war.
I just read that on Michelle Dunlop's Aerospace Blog at the Everett Herald.
Air Force officials testified at hearings in Congress yesterday, saying their tanker forces could not sustain two out of three scenarios of major conflict.
This is bad because? Oh that's right, in the new 9-11 world, there's a boogey man under every bed in the Pentagon and the Whitehouse.
If this is what it takes to slow down our continuing trend toward perpetual war, I say, let's just keep those tankers grounded.
