    It is 2010. 2010 minus 2008 equals 2. 2 is a smaller number than 10. What the heck is going on? What kind of financial penalties does Kodak have to pay to the US government for not honoring their contract? Hell, I get raped by the government as an honest worker. Can you imagine how the government treats entities that break contracts with it???
    What if the government broke the contract with Kodak?

    "Hey Kodak, we don't want any more IR film!"

    Does the US Government have to pay penalties?

    Nah, it is Kodak's fault. It is always Kodak's fault, no matter what happens it is Kodak's fault. The earth quake in Haiti, Kodak. AL-Qadea, Kodak. My unbalanced front right wheel, Kodak. The bastards.

    Did you think it could be the GOVERNMENT who wanted to end the contract?
