Now we hear that the Boeing Dreamliner has a problem with the fire extinguishers for the engines but they have not been grounded.

I will think twice before flying in a Boeing.

United States has threatened to cancel Turkey's participation in the Lockheed F-35 fighter jet program over Ankara's purchase of a Russian radar system

For a NATO country that is a stupid thing to do.

If Russia went to war with NATO Turkey radar system would be easy to block.

Now if Turkey is thinking of going over to the Russian side, then this could be the first step in that process.

Historically Boeing is a rather an untrust-worthy company.

They are supported by the US Government for Military contracts

but Civilian work takes second place - the 737 series is not without problems - and even then, their Defense work is ... questionable too.

If you are Patriotic, then you should look closer at these "Defense" contractors and ask yourselves... are they just screwing the "Country for the ride" to inflate their profits ?
