Never said they did, what I said was in order to fly them off a CVTOL desk they would need to build a ramp, which would make it impossible the fly off any other type of aircraft.

Best course of action assuming this cannot be fixed, is to cancel the F-35B and buy Super Hornets which are almost as good and much cheaper.

UNLESS the rules of engagement are changed.

OR Congress "refocuses" spending limits of force deployment.

OR UNLESS the theatre of operation is deemed " Too Geopolitically Unstable" for peace loving peoples of the area of operation.

OR direct action must be taken in "sensitive steps" to aviod "ethinic upheaval of minorities" in the region.

OR bi party outcry over the use of force pressures the president to scrub the mission from the start...

But other than that, then yea I believe him.
