The Pentagon plans to destroy more than $1 billion worth of ammunition although some of those bullets and missiles could still be
used by troops, according to the Pentagon and congressional sources.
It's impossible to know what portion of the arsenal slated for
destruction — valued at $1.2 billion by the Pentagon — remains viable
because the Defense Department's inventory systems can't share data
effectively, according to a Government Accountability Office report
obtained by USA TODAY.
But the brass want to cut troops pay and benefits to 'save money'...
One of the demonstrations of idiocy:
• The services hold an annual conference to share information about
surplus ammunition and swap bullets and other munitions as needed. Data
about ammunition left over after the meeting disappears from the books,
resulting in an unknown amount of good bullets headed to the scrap heap.
Howzabout a bunch of idiots who're in charge of this being fired? And their replacements told "Get this done and end this waste, or you're going to Minot. Forever."
