    •  What about maintenance & development? (0+ / 0-)

      I'm sure that just maintaining our current arsenal (and the technology behind it) is costing us a ton as well.

      Also, Iran is in the business of acquiring hardware only after some country (like ours) that has the resources ($ and people) develops and tests that hardware.  I'm sure R&D in Iran is a speck compared to the kind of R&D we do for our military.

      How does that hit the per capita?
