Amazing. The military has to contract private firms to supply themselves for a war. This is such a surprise. After all, the military has always made its own equipment. They never had to turn to civilian infrastructure to help them wage war. No sir, this is such a shock. Gasp.
That's not the suprising part of this documentary, it's highlighting how much control the defense contractors have over our democracy. Even the most liberal Congressmen appropriate money for multi-billion dollar killing machines because they put factories up in every Congressional district in the country. We spend more money on defense than everything else in the normal budget (minus social security).
This didn't happen before WWII, the military only built itself up then to fight wars then dismantled itself, now we have to go to war periodically to keep KBR afloat. It's fucked.
unfortunately, the easy bet is on getting sucked dry. i've said it before, enjoy your time and don't have kids. this planet is fucked.

the lack of GPS in that situation makes me wonder how you mean your analogy. you mean the movie will get past me and to the people who will do more than nod and think "yep, thought so"? well then, by all means, don't let me stand in the way. i'm merely explaining that it would be alot more effective shown to people who aren't wearing blue.
or maybe it was a complement? or had nothing to do with me? who know, you kids with your GPS metaphors and your make out parties.
