America has been going into debt like there is no tomorrow. I wonder if we'll look back on this as the moment in history when "tomorrow" started catching up with the USA? Think about it: if this happens then the Eurofighter will become the most modern fighter in production, and THAT hasn't happened since the days of the Spitfire. Interesting, but I suspect it will pass all-but-unnoticed.
