  •  I'm still confused (0+ / 0-)

    If the new weapons don't cost that much money, then why does the DoD keep asking for large appropriations for them?

    And I don't think that engineers and other high-tech contractors are so inflexible that the contractors couldn't be reassigned to new jobs.  It's not like this is some guy who only knows how to mount carburetors and hasn't done anything else for 30 years and now he has to do something else he's not trained for.

    Please clarify.
