The U.S. government and the Pentagon has estimated the the long-term costs of operating
and maintaining a fleet of more than 2,000 Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 fighter jets over 55 years to just under $1 trillion.                                                                                         (Source - Reuters News, Wednesday, August 21 '13)


"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense, a theft from those
