I admit I'm not an expert on the Pentagon, but I am a pretty seasoned person in selling to the United States DOD. So where the decisions are made vary from Congress to the Pentagon to other agencies. Nonetheless, there are constant reviews of cost on programs driven by the Pentagon, and this is not unusual. From time to time, we have a review in Canada too of costs associated with ongoing operations as well as procurements.
In the case of the Joint Strike Fighter...well, let's say in the case of the current studies being done in the Pentagon area, what is really being taken out are the thousands and thousands and thousands of ex-military people or ex-members of DOD, civilian or whatever, who are rehired to do studies, to write reports, to do whatever. The present Secretary of Defense and his deputy have focused on that as an obvious waste of money, in their opinion, and I think a lot of people agree with them. That is taking out the fluff in the U.S. defence department, as opposed to the hard core requirements, which are the aircraft, the tanks, the ships, and so on. So they're taking, I would think, measures that we would see as being beneficial to Canada and other countries that export into the United States for defence work, and Canada is a major exporter to the U.S.
So I don't see it as being a particularly negative thing. In fact, if anything, it's maybe one of the best things they've done in decades.
