“It loads up like a bomb truck.” For defense? No. The F-35 is designed to be a first strike weapon capable of carrying 2,000 lb bombs and cruise missiles. Watch this 3 minute F-35 promotion video to learn more.
For local coverage of the F-35 see the following list from CCTV: http://www.cctv.org/search/node/F-35.
CCTV began covering the issue in April, 2010. See the detailed factsheet for times in the videos cross referenced with statements made by officials.
Thanks as always to CCTV, The Center for Media and Democracy, for great consistent coverage of important local issues.
