Lockheed Threatens Reprisals Against  Canada

Lockheed Martin threatens to pull all of their Canadian operations, nearly 10,000 good paying jobs, over Canadian prime minister’s refusal to purchase the faulty F-35 without first staging a competition, Sputnik reported. Lockheed Martin renewed threats to engage in economic reprisals against Canada if the country refuses to purchase the much maligned F-35 Lightning at a time when the country seems to be leaning towards Boeing’s Super Hornet on grounds of both capabilities and costs. The F-35 has become a headache for western leaders in recent months facing a new round of delays after failing to meet a critical testing deadline due to a software glitch that causes the plane to sporadically shutdown midflight and recent revelations that the plane’s Martin Baker ejection seat will immediately snap the neck of and potentially decapitate all pilots under 135 pounds with a heightened risk to pilots between 135 and 160 pounds.
