A video that first surfaced on the John Q. Public blog showing the usefulness of the A-10 “Warthog” Thunderbolt II and the trust our warfighters on the ground place in it, appears to have the politicians and “their” generals at the Pentagon very nervous.
The Warthog is the main low-altitude, close air support aircraft of the U.S. Air Force, and the most effective at saving lives on the ground. Politicians are currently considering retiring this plane to free up budget money for the new F-35 which has gone billions of dollars over budget (no surprise there) and has had many failures and breakdowns.
Many politicians and their minions want the Warthog retired but our warfighters on the ground want it to stay, so share this video to give our men and women fighting our wars a voice in this decision!
