So although GMR is "certified for use," the Army doesn't actually want to use it. And the system isn’t done costing the government money. While the Army waited years for GMR, it spent $11 billion more on “legacy” radios based on technology from the Cold War. As Ward pointed out, the Army may yet pay billions more to get the radios it actually needs—just as the war in Afghanistan is winding down.

It never ceases to amaze the rest of the world how the American taxpayer continues to let themselves get fleeced by the military-industrial complex. Simply boggles the mind.

Well, maybe because here my effective tax rate for last year (for both me and my wife) was 9.84%, and when I lived back in Holland my effective tax rate was 38%.

Yeah, the government is wasting money, but they do that everywhere. At least here they have LESS of my money to waste...

How'd you manage that? My effective tax rate is 17.6% for federal income taxes, and that's not even accounting for sales tax, property tax, etc.
