Air Force goes European

There ought to be a law against this.  The US Air Force has announced they are going with the Airbus A330 for refueling tankers instead of the Boeing 767.  Over time, this means well over 100 billion of our tax dollars will be flooding into Europe (France, England, Germany and Spain help make the Airbus) instead of keeping Americans employed.

And is it really fair, since those European governments subsidize the Airbus and our government does not subsidize Boeing?  Is this what we'll get with McCain in charge, our defense and our jobs being let out to foreign countries?
