Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Really, the Gripen program is one of the things that's actually relatively well managed. Under budget, before schedual. The real disasters are things like the Visby stealth corvette (in the water since 10 years, still no weapons beyond the 57 mm gun, helicopter doesn't fit in the helicopter bay), helicopter 14 (delayed 15 years, no fines payed because we forgot to specify that in the contract), this new communications systems which was just stopped by bloggers, all the NBF/RMA-shit (don't even ask - 5 years of work, 1 billion (euros) spent, total result: a few power point-slides). Of yes, and business management systems like SAP, PRIO, the new central storage depot, the total fucking up of the SSG120 armored mechanized mortar program, the AMV/SEP debacle, the list goes on and on and on. And on. I could keep on for hours really.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
