Why do people who call themselves “conservatives” and who claim to advocate “limited government” worship big military? Former Congressman Ron Paul wonders why so many dollars worth of U.S. military weapons have supposedly fallen into the hands of “enemies.” “Building weapons and seeing them end up in the hands of the enemy is almost a routine event,” says Doctor Paul.
A recent headline in Mother Jones read: “US Weapons Have A Nasty Habit of Going AWOL.” The report was about $500 million worth of military equipment that is unaccounted for in Yemen.
It is hard to believe this is attributable to incompetence alone (though all government operations tend to be incompetent).
Is there a darker plot behind these “lost weapon” stories? Will we soon be attacked by weapons we paid for?
Stay tuned. . . .
