Cannibalizing the arsenal of democracy in turbulent times | Military Times

Must Read

The “arsenal of democracy” has been cannibalized by the Pentagon for the past 30 years, with significant portions of our nation’s industrial capability being eliminated and the remainder being allowed to decay.


 The Department of Defense is well aware of the problem and has even gone so far as to research and compile it, most recently in a report on the defense industrial base published in February 2022. There is rarely a single cause for a tragedy or disaster, but the multitude of causes can be reduced to the statement that a poor strategy has resulted in insufficient resources. The result is a national security bureaucracy that lacks faith in its own capacity to wage and win a lengthy conflict with great power, whether directly or indirectly.  Pentagon officials ultimately have only one clear option. For the remainder of this decade, they have two options: change to a more procurement-focused approach, or keep trying to defund the democratic arsenal.
