The Confederate supply system rides again

The good people of SFTT noticed the same Financial Times article I did, the one about the Army running out of ammo in Iraq:

As of today, the Army is considering using a consortium of suppliers to fill the gap under the umbrella of mega contractor General Dynamics. These include Winchester, Israel Military Industries and SNC Technologies of Canada. We apparently have now outstripped the domestic capacity to supply our own ammunition needs and have to outsource that critical need to other countries. This is not a very good position to be in for our national defense.

This is like the Lincoln and Davis arms purchasing missions going abroad in '61. Read the whole thing.
