Don't hate on Bloomberg. These are simply journalists reporting the news and raising fair questions. It's a reasonable debate. $400 billion for a political-military pet project? The awesome factor won't win here. Look at this holistically and you'll understand that this is no different than a police officer standing on the corner outside of a Papa Gino's Pizzeria with an M-16 strapped to his chest and four loaded magazines on his belt, drinking coffee on a Tuesday morning. Don't get me wrong, I want our military to have the best technology readily available to defend our country, but this, to me, is political warfare, not tactical. And, no, I've never been in a war or near one, but I do have faith in our men and women — with or without a $400 billion Voltron-like Navy — we will smoke anyone if it came down to it.
