What happened to all those hundreds of Billions? The Pentagon budget for last few years has topped $400B. Another $200B was spent on military operations in Iraq in the last few years. Meanwhile the troops are apparently still under equipped. Boston Globe's article about a recent Marine Corps report on the equipment shortfall: http://www.boston.com/news/world/mi...5/06/21/marine_units_found_to_lack_equipment/ Arizona Republic report of how Marines are being asked to buy their own gear before being shipped out to Iraq: http://www.azcentral.com/news/columns/articles/0618evthomason18Z10.html Where is all this money going if the military can't provide the basic gear to the troops?
