#2 I guess the thinking is that the three VIP aircraft will absorb three Russian missiles. I'm not sure I have a problem with that.

#3 They’re Airbuses, right? Thus it is that Germany is supporting local production so that they will have a supplier when the Americans cut them off. And as everyone knows, it is logistics that allows wars to be won.

QED.

#5 related to the Airbus/Germany thing: Right now Germany and Airbus are in an argument about the roughly 600 million euro loan given to AB to finance the soon to be dead A 380. AB contends they have already 'repaid' the loan by giving people jobs and all the spin off jobs that the work created (fast food, other services, etc). Germany says not so fast; so maybe this a/c buy is an attempt to give AB some money to 'repay' the loan....
