The Pentagon has a budget of over 1/2 trillion and they can only manage to equip two brigades.

I'm sure that Fox's point is that they need more tax money. Right!

When you've been at war constantly for the past 13 years and operating under a "use it or lose it" mentality for the last 60 years this is what you get. There is more fraud, waste, and abuse in the military as a whole than the rest of the government combined.
