    That's the good old military industrial complex doing what it can to survive. So long as they refrain from starting wars to drum up business I'll live. Starting wars we leave to the private army/security mercenary companies. All's fair in cowboy capitalism.

    The "enemy at home" is as threatening as "the enemy from abroad," keeping the defense companies awash in work (and revenues) for a long time to come.
