Thank God. Too long has the Pentagon and Defense Department not participated in any actual, real budget but have misused far beyond the Wall Street debacles, spent more money for no good reason except to make jobs for more war industry which already ripped the American people off through trillions of dollars of money given over to no contact bids and no regulation. Good for Bob Gates and good for Obama. This scam has to end - let them make new tools with their weapons of war and help to restore balance to the new world order.

They still have not worked yet (the failed missile system)...
Perhaps some day if they spend enough.

Obviously, the two of you numb-nuts who by the way are not even stationed at ft greely have no clue or conception the importance of this program. This is not about "ripping off" the american people. The american people could care less about 20 missles underground here at Greely. What matters is the defense of this state against a bonafide lunatic. Did you know that a good chunk of these jobs in the "war industry" make-up a vast majority of the employment in the country as a whole? That's right, uncle sam is the number one employer at the moment. As far as "restoring the balance" it was never tipped, thanks to us in the "war industry."
