Exclamation Save The A-10 Warthog

Fighting the Congressional “retire the A-10” chorus

Fighting the Congressional “retire the A-10” chorus and instead keeping our A-10 Warthog attack/support aircraft fleet active and modernized provides about the best take-out-those-specific-tanks-that-are-threatening-the-good--guys capability of any country in the world. The A-10’s amazingly long loiter time and its legendary ability to take and survive hits from enemy ground fire have made this aircraft the single most feared and hated weapon in the U.S. arsenal, according to captured belligerents in the Mid-East.

If the Air Force does not want the A-10 then for God's sake give it to the Army because we need its amazingly long loiter time for the ground support of troops on the ground. The A-10 proved its worth many times over in Iraq and Afghanistan time after time! It needs updating and improving with newer models not retirement! Why must we re-invent the wheel when the one we have is one of the best in the world. Our military or should I say our civilian leaders of our military seem time after time to fail to LEARN the lessons our wars try to teach us! The A-10 as mentioned in the above paragraph is the single most feared and hated weapon in the U.S. arsenal, according to captured belligerents in the Mid-East for a good reason and that is because it is EFFECTIVE at supporting our ground troops and killing the enemy be they enemy tanks in Iraq or Taliban in Afghanistan! When it comes to maneuvering in tight mountains at slower speeds than any other American jet aircraft can while taking enemy fire from surrounding ridges to take out enemy fighters ambushing American troops there is no other sound that puts the fear of God in America's enemies than the "BRRRRRRRRRRRTTTTT” from an A-10 in close support of our men on the ground. And there is no more comforting sound for those men in harms way than to know those men in the in the "flying gun" have their backs to root out the enemy giving them "no place to hide". SAVE the A-10 Warthog!!!

Update, improve, modernize, but most of all keep the "Flying Gun" flying!!!

Help the Warthog do its job and root every Terrorist & Enemy of Freedom out from under every rock they seek to hide under!
O Israel
The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
