Anti-war war contractors

Weird. Apparently, the defense industry is increasingly uneasy about the war in Iraq. Why? Because all the money that should be going towards new B2 bombers and destroyers and tanks is going to keeping the existing equipment working and the live soldiers breathing. But just so we're clear, it's not like Lockheed is starving:
“Part of the reason the defense industry has not rebelled as much is that the defense budget has grown and there’s a lot of money to go around,” said Ellis. “The money we spend on the defense industry is enormous and they have not felt the pressure.”
