Pentagon awards $2.6 billion to build trucks


Mine Resistant Ambush Protected
(MRAP) military vehicle

I believe most people would agree the military needs the best equipment available while in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Pentagon said on Tuesday it awarded more than $2.6 billion worth of contracts to BAE Systems Plc, Force Protection Inc and a Navistar International Corp unit to build another 3,126 mine-resistant vehicles for U.S. soldiers.

Here's a novel idea. Bring the troops home so they aren't driving over mines and you don't need any more fucking trucks. Divert the $2.6 billion to the gulf coast and help Americans rebuild.
