Is it possible this is just a cronyist, pork barrel project otherwise known as a payback, payoff and a transfer of private money to the corporate sector?
Ex: the government bought metric tonnes of corn and stockpiled it to rot to prop up the farming sector. Why is this different?
Could it be that winding down wars are leaving the armaments industry with a shortfall and this is an indirect bailout?
Just looking at a different angle.
