MISSILE DEFENSE AGENCY (MDA) – After intense lobbying by the U.S. war industry, the D.C. regime pulled out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty in 2002. This paved the way for the establishment of the Missile Defense Agency, and allowed the U.S. war industry to develop, market, and sell “ballistic missile defense” weaponry. This weaponry is one of the most lucrative sectors of the U.S. war industry.

IDIQ = indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity = In an IDIQ contract, a war corporation sells a lot of goods and services within a timeframe set by the Pentagon. These goods and services are usually issued through “task orders” during the timeframe. (The Pentagon sets a minimum amount, which the war corporation fills. Then, within the timeframe, the Pentagon can place orders beyond the established minimum.) Industry officials assert IDIQ contracts benefit the Pentagon because the U.S. Armed Forces get the products they need (even when the Pentagon cannot initially determine the precise amounts required); IDIQ, officials argue, allows the corporation to be there when the Pentagon needs it.
