    works, but it seems to me the fundamental problem is that someone high up in the Pentagon is making money off the inferior armor.  At least that is what OHs diaries have led me to believe.
    I find it hard to believe that officers in the field wouldn't want soldiers under their command to have the best chance of living to fight another day, especially considering how short-staffed they are already.
    I really think this is a top-down issue.

    The media are only as liberal as the conservative businesses that own them.

      become just another political faction, the rank and file lose out. It is treasonous. And if Congress doesn't have the clout to do anything about it, then we really have lost whatever checks and balances we have in the government. It's just too FUBAR.
