Re: “Mailbag

I don't know how the apparently well educated Mr. Jacobson gets his unrealistic "logic". If jet fuel consumption and CO2 is the problem, should we destroy all automobiles, trucks and motorcycles operated every day in Tucson? By my calculation, if he eliminated all I-10 traffic and local traffic we would reduce the CO2 level and ambient noise many times over that which take-offs and landings of all aircraft produce or would produce when the F-16s are replaced with the F-35s. One wonders how he would feel if Metropolitan Tucson was attacked with no defenses. Tucson is one of the top 25 likely targets in the US of A because of our defense design and manufacturing facilities.

I note Mr.Jacobson says "I hear distant and meaningless war". Isn't the fact that it is distant and not here worth anything. By my definition, patriotism is love of country. One wonders if Mr. Jacobson is so much a pacifist that if armed gang members broke into his home, that he would invite them to have whatever they wanted and not defend his loved ones or property. Those of us who are patriotic love our country and will die to protect it if necessary.
