38. We should have known
I remember the outrage when they were dumping batteries and items like that. We should have wondered where the hell all of those weapons went, and figured it out. And think of the waste. We spend billions of dollars to make these weapons, then spend millions or billions to destroy or dump it, then turn around and spend billions more on weapons that we're just going to dump at some point in the future. Total insanity.

This has got to be one of the more stomach churning articles I've ever read in my life.
