But you get 3 hots and a cot (well, sometimes) and you get to play with some really cool toys and blow shit up.

What's not to like? Wink

Am I the only one that finds the concept of using a $500,000 tomahawk missile (no joke) to blow up a mud hut in Afghanistan to be an interesting one? The hellfire is like $60k a pop. Even with a JDAM at $20k is still pretty fucking steep for something that is literally a one shot deal. I suppose that's what happens when the government only allows like 5 contractors to build munitions that all collude like fucking crazy, but nobody will ever investigate how bad Uncle Sam and the people are getting fucked on this deal.

However, the Navy is getting prepped to begin field testing the ship mounted rail gun. Putting one on a C5 Galaxy would be spectacular.

Our military industrial complex is what's destroying this country. It's what's crushing us under debt. Not welfare, food stamps, unemployment.


Cut deep I say.

I would rather have the cuts affect the Army.

We can only be invaded if they can make it across the ocean.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

I was just going to say that. My girlfriend might be working on that project for a few months in VA. She was showing me youtube test videos on it. They want to put it on the newer class of destroyers (Zumwalt class). After seeing a few videos about it, I really could care less about getting rid of the Tomahawk program.
