Miscellaneous Musing #67

Were I a minister or secretary of defense, I would probably recommend that my state either destroy all its offensive airborne weaponry or sell it to a close ally, and re-allocate for aerial defenses (e.g., surface-to-air missiles, anti-aircraft guns, and systems like Israel’s Iron Dome) all the resources previously devoted thereto; in fact, I would propose an international treaty to ban such ordnance. (Said treaty would not, sadly, be ratified by most Western powers, which like to pretend to take action against evil from time to time by launching “airstrikes”.)
