    What a waste...it's not like it will go bad in the next fifty years !

    Hell, why not sell it on the civilian market and make back at least 1.5 billion...turning it into a profit to decrease the deficit ?

    Oh...I forgot who's in charge...my bad !!

    "We simply cannot afford this type of waste and ineffectiveness," Carper said. "The (Pentagon) has a responsibility to efficiently manage its ammunition stocks, not only because it is important to be fiscally responsible, but also because our antiquated ammunition inventory systems can shortchange our war fighters and compromise their ability to complete their mission."
