American ingenuity is not going to be found hiding in a federal government anything.

Remember the Bradly fighting vehicle, designed by a committee, pounced upon by politicians, add in billions wasted in largess, and you get what, an M113 with a turret and ten feet taller??????

Billions on Hummveeeeeeeeeeeeeeees, to replace a standard off the shelf proven Jeep???
Just a bigger target that drinks more fuel, cost far more, and still can't do what a lowly old Jeep does.

The Army is going back to an old uniform.
They might take a long look at going back to old fashion, get close with the enemy and just kill them.

MRE's vs CRats, any arguments from anyone here???
