    America is running out of bombs to drop on ISIS as an official says 'missiles aren't being made fast enough and there's waiting lists for them'
    • Officials say the US is running out of bombs to fight against ISIS with
    • Air Force chief of staff Gen. Mark Welsh said the Air Force is now 'expending munitions faster than we can replenish them'
    • An official said that the bombing campaign against ISIS has left the US Air Force with munitions depot stocks 'below the desired objective'
    • Increasing the stock could take 'up to four years from time of expenditure to asset resupply'
    • State Department official said: 'There are essentially waiting lists for Hellfire. They can't make them fast enough'

    Bullshit story. The military gets trillions of dollars every year. They're not running out of anything.

    They should force the terrorists at Guantanamo to make bombs for the US. Win-win.

    I remember this same story was floated out there during the war in Kosovo. The author must have dusted it off, changed the dates and names so it appeared current. Sure beats doing actual work I guess.

    when the bombs are all technical and shit I can believe that you could have an issue keeping them on the shelves

    do what that dude in Syria is doing
    fill 55 gallon drums with gas and nails or whatever and just light a long wick and toss them outta planes

    I see 55 gallon drums, nails, and gas all the time

    i'm a problem solver

    Good to know that defending the country is "discretionary" spending.

    But entitlements (aka buying votes to get re-elected) are mandatory spending.

    The point of our endless conflicts is to keep the military-industrial complex fat and happy. Actually the conflicts don't even matter, we just need an excuse to bomb empty sand, like we've been doing for three years... it's a matter of monetary churn. We don't even need an enemy.

    Maybe we can ask the Saudi's for all the bombs we sold them last week (1.3 billion worth) back.
