I can't understand this action. It's nonsense. Next, will it be that Oreos, Pepsi, Coke, Snickers, etc. are banned because someone is profiting? Isn't all of the military supplied, equipped, maintained and totally sustained by private enterprise? The military didn't build, grow or make anything and then have it sent to base supply.
