DHS bureaucrats in charge of supply/distribution will likely hand out ammo to (newly-badged and ill-trained) agents like DoE hands out tax dollars to green energy boondoggles, “Lots of Tea Party Extremists out there, better take an extra case.” Thanks in advance, Janet!

Lying in bed waiting for the sun to rise, I started thinking of every possibility that this ammunition could be used for.

The best one is that the Muslims start protesting in the USA and it has to be used on them to quell the crowds and keep them from torching our schools and theaters. I am certain that is about 720 degrees out of alignment from what is actually intended.

I’m thinking that their deep planners are thinking that a total civil breakdown will follow a financial collapse.

EBTs flashing ZERO etc.

They will need to “restore order by any means necessary,” and they may not have a chance to obtain any more ammo for several years or longer, once the factories are closed etc.

It’s an adjunct to “continuity of govt operations.”

“Continuity of ammunition.”

That’s my take. They are planning for “Taxamageddon” or some other “Amageddon” leading to a total social breakdown and explosion.

It’s not like it’s needed at our foreign embassies.

Well, at least WE will know where to go when we need more ammunition ... we can "draw" on their stash ...

There is no reason our embassies in the ME shouldn't have a cache of crew served weapons. Depending on the terrain around the compound, a complement of M60s, Mk19s and even M2s should be on site for area denial if the host nation refuses, or fails to secure the surrounding area.

We've learned nothing from Khobar Towers and the Downing Report.

“...total social breakdown and explosion.”

The globalists’ community organizer, Obama, has been working the Middle East for chaos and he wants it here, too. He wants a world collapse. World war is likely.

Out of collapse-chaos will come the “progress” of the New World Order. One world bank, one world currency, Nations made into states to carry out the orders of an unelected global government. Debt erased. New phase of hell for mankind.

They are very optimistic to believe they can grab the reins of a NWO out of total disorder that will follow the EBT cards etc flashing ERROR.

Mad Max anarchy is just as likely.

I see anarchy as the means to the end - NWO.

Wearing a light blue helmet on continental USA soil would be like being at any gun range in the target section during open fire sequence. Put it on, step out into public view and yell, “SHOOT ME FIRST!”.

I also think that wearing a TSA uniform in public view would be just as deadly.

If the excuse is “Training” why aren’t they buying less expensive range ammo for the task?
