The United States Government spends more money on the machinery of war than Russia. China, and all of NATO put together

American Scofflaw

The Air Force's entire fleet of F-22s is grounded because the oxygen system is actually feeding carbon monoxide to the pilots! The $2 billion USS San Antonio, a 700-foot amphibious transport ship used to support shore assaults, can only operate in calm seas.

Delivered in 2005, the ship has had only one deployment, notable only for almost ramming another ship in the Suez Canal. Finally put back to sea last May after extensive and costly repairs, the ship is again in the repair ship with problems in all four of its engines!

Two other U.S. Navy ships, the USNS Bejamin Isherwood and the USNS Henry Eckford, built 25 years ago at a cost of $300 million, are headed to the scrap yard without ever serving an actual day of service. The Army's $2.7 billion Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) crashes all the time and the search engine doesn’t work very well, when it works at all.
