Most EXPENSIVE Military Mistakes

    From cleaning up big environmental blunders to decsions that lead to a big waste of money, here are most expensuve military mistakes.
    12. Blue Devil Airship
    Known for being one of the US’s recently scrapped projects, the blue devil airship was set to be a bizarre looking blimp the size of a football field for use in Afghanistan. About 7 times larger than a goodyear blimp, It was designed to steal data and spy on people from 4 miles up in the sky. It had doesn’t of video systems which would be used for scoping out targets during the day and at night. It was considered to be a wide-area airborne surveillance system and the government invested a whopping 211 million dollars into the project. Technical problems kept showing up with overweight tailfins and the expectations of the cameras that were supposed to be equipped were far below what they wanted. In June of 2011, the project was sold back to the contractor for 1/1000 of the price.

    11. Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle
    The expeditionary fighting vehicle was an unconventional amphibious assault vehicle built for the US Marine corps that would have rivaled the US abrams tank for mobility and agility. It could also equipe 17 soldiers and a 7 man crew making it a formidable transport vehicle. It was designed to also detonate underwater mines and clear the way for bigger ships that would follow their lead. It didn’t turn out to be quite so revolutionary in the end and the cost per unit would reach 22 million dollars each. Several prototypes rolled off the assembly line with reliability issues and they needed constant maintenance. For every 4 hours of operation, it would require at least one hour of maintenance which just wasn’t efficient enough. More affordable options were considered and the secretary of defense announced the cancelling of the project in January of 2011. By then, the amount spent already reached $3.3 billion making it a big money waster. .

    10. Agent Orange Vietnam
    Agent orange was used in a herbicidal warfare program Vietnam conflict by the US military and has destroyed countless acres of land and ruined lives long after it was used. It contains one of deadliest chemicals that occurs in nature but can be produced in larger quantities a production facility. Also created by Monsanto, this is one of the reasons why people don’t trust gmo’s and pesticides created by this company. The Red Cross claims the effects of this toxin has resulted in serious birth defects from Children in Central and Southern Vietnam. Agent orange was banned by the US and in 1971 the stockpile was destroyed on a remote island 700 miles south of Hawaii. Since it was sprayed in so many places, in still gets in the food of unfortunate Vietnamese people to this day. The environmental impacts are also quite unsettling when you take a look at this forest east of Saigon. It’s also hard to put a price on this mistake but lawsuits, and clean up efforts have easily cost over 100’s of millions worth in damage from around the world.


    9. Alenia C-27J Spartan
    Even though the americans have dozens of different transport planes, they decided to invest quite a bit of dough in planes that would be able to land on unpaved areas and on shorter runways the Hercules. After about 18 or so of these were originally built, but the air force basically just decided that they no longer needed or wanted them. With each one costing about 32 million dollars each, it almost just seems like too big of an investment to just give up on. Pretty much as soon as the delivery for the order of the planes arrived, they were shipped off to the arizona desert for storage meaning 600 million dollars totally went to waste. It’s believed that in an attempt to create jobs in ohio, a contractor pushed the military who didn’t really even want them. The US has made some attempts to sell them to other countries
    8. Missing Greenland Nukes
    In 1968, the USA agreed to beef up their military presence on the nearly inhospitable landmass known as greenland. We felt as though the soviets would possibly strike this location first, due to its strategic location in the northeast. B-52 commonly patrolled the sky, ready to demolish multiple cities if asked to do so. No one knows for sure why it crashed but the bomber crashed off the coast into the Baffin bay and once again, everything went missing including 4 hydrogen bombs. The USA officials had claimed to have found the weapons and demolished them however, according to declassified documents that’s not the case! While we do have proof the pilot was okay, the wmd’s not so much. Trying to look the misplaced wmd’s in the frigid and dark conditions of the arctic was certainly no easy task. While some of the wreckage was recovered in operation chrome dome, it’s still believed one complete hydrogen bomb was not recovered. Danish citizens who worked at thule were also granted compensation after many were diagnosed with cancer.

The F35 is a multi-role multi-service aircraft. It is not an air superiority fighter and will not normally engage other aircraft in a head to head dogfight. It is also equipped with technology that only those with specific clearances know and understand. Should these F35 encounter enemy fighters, it would most likey divert before the enemy knows it is there and have the F22, F16, or FA18E/F handle it. War has become more complicated then faster engines and agility. If an EA18G (EA6B replacement) is in the sky with them.... well my friend... good luck.

While you hate on the F-35 now just like you lil snowflakes like to do. I think that would change if you had done some research. Because now that pilots have got some air time; I believe most of the comments about F-35 has been positive. Also you need to realize the F-35 isn't designed to be in a dogfight it's designed to take out enemy aircraft before they know they've been toned. Also with as many countries wanting to purchase our F-35 their not going to coast the U.S. as much as you think after their sold for huge mark-up for a striped aircraft. I hope my comment didn't trigger,or offend you. HaHaHaHaHahahahaaaaa........... I apologize I couldn't hold it back any longer I don't care if I triggered you,or not. To be honest; it may do you some good. One more thing while I've got ya pissed. :) Do you realize you sound like a twelve year old with a head cold? Don't worry that will all change once you hit puberty,and your nuts drop. Hang in there sport.

Those Blimps look like tempting targets for anyone around the base where they take off from. A whale moving in the sky at about 2 miles per hours LOL. If you can't get several dozen rounds off into that thing, you shouldn't be allowed to use a weapon. You'd think the military could be a little more creative than that. Hell, take a  big transport plane up and let lose hundreds of small drones with cameras and save a few billion dollars. The Pentagon's a haven for dull thinking tacticians. They allowed themselves to get hit on 9/11. They were inside watching the Trade Towers burn on Televisions while a slow moving passenger jet was careening toward them. This is supposed to be the brain center for the military and they're caught with the pants down by amateurs. Give me a break. These people need oversight and we need to stop giving them blank checks. We will always need a good updated military system. But they should only be making Military battle decisions, not decisions on what to order for their toy box. Let them put in requests for things they want, then let experts decide, based on hard thinking evidence of viability and single prototypes. They are Militarists not engineers. And for God's sake make them keep their suggestions of foreign policy to themselves and out of the media. I'm no military leader but I would have immediately put F-22 Raptors in the air to circle the Pentagon the moment I saw the Trade Towers incident.

How people don't know that Bayer was a major contributor to the production of agent orange is a fact that needs to be spread. People also blame a company for doing what companies do, they supply a product that a client wants for money. If it wasn't Bayer or Monsanto, it would've been another chemical company. _The morals and ethics of a business decision to supply the USA government with chemicals is not relevant to these facts._

I dont think number 8 can really be summed up in a dollar value. When i was 13 i went to a village in vietnam that took care of over 100 children in the area whose parents were affected by agent orange. Every single one of them had been born with horribly debilitating deformities, alot couldnt walk or if they could it was on all fours. That was when i decided i didnt like the US foreign policy and understood why everyone there hated Americans

research and development is the most popular method of moving billions of dollars for other reasons, by those who don't care if the projects are successful or not. follow the money and you'll find the true objectives. R&D effectively allows you to print money. it happens in the military industrial development, in the pharmaceutical industry and in many others.

American war products are inferior. Russia has missals that can sink any boat in our Navy. The Swedish Navy has a small, non nuclear submarine that in war games, twice sank the aircraft carrier, Ronald Reagan. If neocon dual passport Jew John Bolton thinks he can muscle people around, he is mistaken. American will be beaten in any war. Be it with Russia, China, or Vietnam, America will lose. How about American industry developing new good products people want at reasonable prices? Then, have skillful negotiators promote the products and fairly trade them worldwide? Enough military and war- finito!

Almost every statement about the f-35 this channel has stated is not correct, it is mostly a non-aviation noob putting things he or she found on Wikipedia and plopping it into a statement that is not accurate. The f-35 does not cost 400 billion dollars, only 5 or 6 were made tops, and they are around 25 billion each. As even the average 3rd grader knows, 5 times 25 does not equal 400. Case in point, the b-2 is not pointless, I have seen them with my own eyes and they do happen to have multiple special add-ons to help them get past radar and other detection systems seeming as small as a bird or other non- aircraft object. The f-35 is still not fully developed yet, and other aircraft have cost almost as much or more than this to create. Everybody just decides to call the f-35 a crappy design or not meeting standards but if you look at the fist model of a Boeing 737 they were short, unreliable, and small. Many crashes and incidents occurred with the early designs, but if you look at them now, they have developed into a good, popular aircraft commonly seen today. Case in point, this channel, along with many others, is feeding lies to the people of America.
