So, you are saying the military f*cked up by not armoring the Humvees correctly & this is Clinton's fault?<quoted text>
Oh, no. I have to explain to another bufoon how government works.
Ok, listen up. Take notes if you need to.
Changes in design, such as armor for Humvees, must go through a procurement process. First, all procurements must be in response to a threat to be approved. Then, money must be appropriated for it. Then, it must go through source selection. Then it must go through concept exploration. Then it must go through design/development. Then it must be deployed.
These types of changes are usually accomodated in a FIVE YEAR DEFENSE PLAN, you fucking idiot.
Now, follow the arithmetic... naught plus naught is naught....
In Clinton's Five Yar Defense Plan, there was no thought of increasing the armor for the Humvees. The Five Year Defense Plan had to be amended to accomodate this and accelerate the process.... you fucking idiot.
And, please refrain from participating in a discussion of topics you don't know a goddam thing about.
In the Dumbwaiter world of make believe, it is the job of the White House to design all military weaponry & transportation vehicles.
