    Another gaf by the Air Force, heads should roll, we sent some nuclear fuses instead of helicopter batteries to Taiwan.. WTF?? Just a small mistake, but this is getting a tad ridiculous.. even that mouthpiece of the right, the Washington Times is reporting this..

    First, the Air Force mistakenly flew armed nuclear warheads in a B-52 bomber over three states and then yesterday officials disclosed another mishap — fuses for Minuteman nuclear missiles were shipped to Taiwan instead of the batteries they ordered.

    Defense officials learned of the mix-up from the Taiwanese government. The fuses, which have since been recovered, had been in Taiwan for more than a year and a half.

    The situation prompted Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates to launch a full-scale investigation into the incident.

    Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne said at a Pentagon press briefing yesterday that the accidental delivery of four electrical fuses for intercontinental ballistic missile nose-cone assembly will be investigated. The original helicopter batteries order was part of a foreign military sale.

    .

    Yet another, "Thank you, Bill Clinton" moment. We still do not know the full extent of China's monetary "contributions" to the Clintons, but we know the Clintons went into the White House as virtual paupers, only to emerge as multi-millionaires, worth about $50 million, at least. Gee, pretty good salary as president!! Oh, Whoops!! President only makes about $400,000 per year, BEFORE taxes.

    $50+ million ain't hen scratchings.

    And, yes, I know this is about Taiwan, not PRC, but the same games the PRC played had to be played by Taiwan, just to stay relevant.

    When did Tawain become our enemy?

    And it is better than sending nuclear fuel rods to North Korea for "nuclear Power Plants", yet the country is still dark at night and they have.... aw never mind.
