Letter to the Editor:
A former owner of an ice cream company is waging a campaign questioning the necessity of the Pentagon’s large scale weapons systems, including the F-35 fighter bomber which has been plagued with problems to be resolved.

We have a need for the development and implementation of strategic weapons systems to counter the systems of Russia, China, North Korea and Iran. Our large scale weapons systems have kept potential adversaries at bay since World War II, and will continue to perform this vital function. The previously mentioned countries have extensive strategic weapons systems and continue to improve them and develop new, more lethal weapons.

I agree with the ice cream guy that we have to assign resources to address the threat of terrorism. In particular, Islamic terrorism is a major threat to world peace as evidenced by the attacks in this country, Europe, Russia and the Middle East.

If the former ice cream guy can guarantee the strategic weapons systems of potential adversaries will melt away, maybe we can convert some of our military manufacturing facilities to the production of ice cream whoopie pies he can use as ammunition against our enemies.
