the black hole in the budget

...that no one talks about, because if they told you, they'd have to kill you.

...Welcome to the world of the real U.S. national security budget. Normally, in media accounts, you hear about the Pentagon budget and the war-fighting supplementary funds passed by Congress for our conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. That already gets you into a startling price range -- close to $700 billion for 2012 -- but that’s barely more than half of it. If Americans were ever presented with the real bill for the total U.S. national security budget, it would actually add up to more than $1.2 trillion a year...

The Austerians preach Austerity because it fits in their scheme of creating a feudal world with the Austerians on top.

So they don't worry at all about spending as much as possible on the biggest, bestest, mostest guns.
