    Whatever the cost of borrowing, the interests we have to repay at some point are still piling up.

    According to Les Echos, "the debt price for 2014 should be revised downward to the tune of € 1.8 billion compared to the initial forecast (46.7 billion)." The low interest rates are expected to stabilize the public debt at around 45 billion euros according to the business daily.

    The very title of the article confirms my point. Debt stabilizes but the deficit increases. Considering we are borrowing (at cost) mostly to pay interests on a debt that shouldn't exist in the first place if we were a sovereign nation, I don't know how anyone can say that's good news when the cost of debt decreases a bit.

    Besides bankers have to decrease the cost of debt if they want us to continue to pay their interests at all, so there again it's rather bad news.

    Even the French speakers are writing in English to communicate with the rest of the world, this shows how irrelevant France/French are. Let alone the comparison between former British colonies (Canada, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Africa more) vs French colonies (They're even dumping French language and adopting English as their national and also secondary language).

    one in 30 adults worldwide 150 Million people who would like to permanently relocate to the U.S., large numbers are attracted to the United Kingdom (45 million), Canada (42 million), France (32 million), and Saudi Arabia (31 million). More people would like to leave India then go there and its the USA that's supposed to be messed up.

    Rafail's radar has already achieved FOC, but it currently does not have functions like a communication datalink and ECM. The Rafail had an MCT based IRST which the AdlA deemed to be inferior to foreign analogues like Pirate. They are waiting for an upgraded version made of QWIP. Actually, the latest tranches of Rafail don't have IRST. It is primarily meant for air to air engagements. The F-35 for example has an EOTS that is made of QWIP and is significantly superior to the one on Rafail. This French fighter's DDM-NG is restricted to just two sensors while the F-35 has 6. So, the F-35 has true 360 degree capability while the Rafale's DDM-NG is slightly less than 360 degrees because the wings obstruct the FoV. F-22, F35 and Typhoon have HUD in the helmet, while the Rafale has a widescreen HUD. The Rafale's datalinks are an improved Link 16 and is a lot inferior to the F-35's MADL.

    Typhoon/F-35/F-22 pilots can see what's going on in the air/ground without even checking/looking at the widescreen HUD, glass cockpits.

    Its a waste of time to mention the Rafale or Russian planes in the same article as the F22 or F35. We know how well the F22 and F35 does against other planes.

    All these capabilities have made the F-22 almost invincible . Indeed, a single Raptor during one of its first training sorties was able to kill eight F-15s in a mock air-to-air engagement, well before they could see it.

    These results were achieved also thanks to the specific training programs which put F-22 pilots against the best US fighters jocks in order to improve their abilities to use the jet’s sophisticated systems, make the most out of sensor fusion, then decide when and to execute the correct tactic.
    The Raptor has a huge advantage against its adversaries as demonstrated by the F-22’s incredible kill ratio against USAF Red Air (which play as enemy air forces during exercises) and its F-16s and F-15s, during the exercises undertaken in the last decade: for instance, during exercise Noble Edge in Alaska in June 2006, few F-22s were able to down 108 adversaries with no losses, while during the 2007 edition of the same exercise, they brought their record to 144 simulated kills.
    In its first Red Flag participation, in February 2007, the Raptor was able to establish air dominance rapidly and with no losses.
    As reported by Dave Allport and Jon Lake in a story which appeared on Air Force Monthly magazine, during an Operational Readiness Inspection (ORI) in 2008, the F-22s scored 221 simulated kills without a single loss.

    War with the USA could mean a country facing 100 F22s, 1000 F35s,, 5000 fighter and bomber air craft, carrying 200,000 precision bombs and missiles as in addition a 1000 armed drones and 10000 cruise missiles in as little ten years. All working as a unified and coordinated whole. That's just on the first day of a war.
