The Congress convinced itself to spend more than a trillion dollars in the effort to maintain the United States Defense Industrial Base and it was all for nothing. The military cannot repair submarines in anything like a timely manner leaving up to 40% of the submarine fleet welded to their piers and unusable in any conflict and it certainly cannot ramp up production of ships and submarines because that just doesn't work anymore despite the trillions of dollars and it cannot ramp up production of artillery, ammunition, missiles, air defense systems, Patriot missiles and batteries and is, in short left holding an enormous bag empty of any capability at all.
Not really a surprise. Various people have been pointing out how hollow all the real world achievements are given the amount spent on them.
More than that though is that the US military idled the Tomahawk production line a decade ago because they thought they had enough missiles for any conceivable action (they never actually figured out what a war would use in terms of missiles fired and needing replacement, they just thought about how many to subdue X number of Libyas or milk factories in Somalia.)
I just heard a chat where some LTGEN had to tell DoD and possibly Congress that multiple successive war games had the United States getting whipped and whipped badly by the Chinese if there was a war.
Heads should roll but they won't.
