I can explain his trend of thought very very easily...

1. If its not european and doesn't have canards... it sucks
2. if its a product of the United States... it sucks

I would hesitate to say that. Some European countries are buying the f-35, so it doesn't make sense to say they all think alike. I do notice that the f-35(and others) don't exactly have many fans among the cheese-eating surrender monkeys, though....

I probably should have included: "some" Euros think that way.


I think the French were always jealous of the F-4 Phantom's multi-role abilities; One wing of the Phantom could basically tote the entire load of the Mirage III. :D

And later by the time they perfected the Mirage F1, the F-16A stole their thunder. It basically took them 15-20 years to finally construct a jet that could beat most versions of it.
