Platitudes without integrity. This is the 2018 Mattis version but this is what the good people trapped in the bad system called the Pentagon are working with. This “strategy” lacks integrity, is divorced from reality, does not do true cost economics, and is not helpful to American security.
Nearly half of all federal research and development dollars go to the Department of Defense, a new report from the Congressional Research Service observes. The Pentagon research budget is more than twice that of the next largest recipient, the Department of Health and Human Services.
The structure of the DoD research budget, which has “its own unique taxonomy,” is described in the new CRS report. See Department of Defense Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E): Appropriations Structure, December 13, 2016:
Part I: US gearing up for false flag attack blamed on Russia that enables a massive attack on Syria that can pivot against Russia. This is outright criminal insanity. “Something Big Is Underway On All Fronts“
Part II: An eye witness report on the massive build up of bombers, submarines, and warships at Diego Garcia, below the fold. More outright criminal insanity.
