This war can't end! It just can't! Its been too profitable for the military industrial complex. What, eight years of gigantic orders for choppers, tanks, cruise missiles, ships, guns, bullets, explosives, casings, clothing, armor, binoculars, meals-ready-to-eat, tents, maps, compasses, radios, computers, toilet paper, felt in-lines for boots, little Iraw and Afghanistan shaped air freshers for latrines, soup ladels, and lots and lots and lots of extra desks and pens for all the strategists who've been paid to do nothing in scattered offices all around the country. (Lemme know if I missed anything on this list.) Basically, its the entire people and economy of Iceland plus the weapons of World War II being paid for by... somebody in the future.
I wonder what the end of year bonuses will be like over here at United Technologies?
