The United States is running out of bombs to blast ISIS terrorists because of the number of targets getting hit, one of the country's top generals has warned.

With all the money the US military is getting in the budget 600+ billion how is this possible, and how do they expect to fight a war with North Korea? There should be Court-martials over the incompetence at how the Military mismanages spending.

Actually, other anonymous, you are not too far off. If you have a lot of money and a lot of firepower, like the US military, and little evolutionary pressure over the last decades (no real competitor - the US military, despite china's advances and Russia's denial to give up its superpower status - is still #1.. only in the last ten years was China getting noticeably stronger. .it takes much longer to change an institution like the pentagon's direction) then that's what happens. If you don't be creative or innovative, you won't.

Meant to read: if you don't have to be creative or innovative, you won't. Necessity is the strongest driver of them all. Hence why the Russians are so good at keeping things afloat..because they have to...that's why the Chinese need to reclaim parts of Asia (because of their pride they have to)

War is good for Us economy and gives the US a chance to get rid of its aging stock, bring in the new advanced weapons in case of a real war

Those are the ground maintenence crews fixing, the flight instructors, the pilots. All but the tank operators. Haha
