It makes me believe that the miltary has been cut enough, at least for the next few years. Let's reorganize, determine our priorities, and go from there. My own thought is that the Defense Department is still reeling from cuts, and they don't know where up is anymore. Let's not mess with their budget for a bit.
This is very sad to me, it seems that cost cutting led directly to the problem being ignored.

Sadly, that is what you get when you award a company contracts and create a monopoly. Even the Soviets/Russians were smart enough to have Sukhoi and Mikoyan-Gurevich pseudo competing against each other.
