Northrup-Grumman: Efficient, Reliable Killing for more than half a century
"What do ethics have to do with building machines that blow off the body parts of Afghan children with the push of a button (the push of a button being made by some guy sitting in an office on the other side of the planet?"
"What do Values have to do with laser-guided Predator Drones, which would be considered the preferred tools of terrorists if the people we label terrorists could afford them. (Of course, if terrorists could afford them, and did use them, we'd use that use as an example of why they are terrorists.) And if the USA didn't use them?"
"What does Integrity have to do with hiring lobbyists, contributing to congressional campaigns, and buying off ex-military to serve as spokesmen against even considering touching military spending when it comes to tackling the budget deficit?"
What does a company like Northrup-Grummond have to do with ethics, values and integrity? Absolutely nothing. What importance does it place on money, power and the ability to deliver quick death to anyone the White House deems an "enemy?" Everything.
