Why not?  I know they don’t now, but why not?














>>…My conclusion: about in 2009, the military decided it wanted to have its own people doing a lot of what the aerospace biggies had been doing for decades.  And why not have the military do it?  Why not have the military people building all its own stuff?  Why do we need aerospace companies doing that?
