It means people on our side need as much Thorazine as the liberals did when they were screaming about these things during the Bush administration.
The ammunition orders for example, isnt as much as people are making it out to be. If you get into the details, what has changed is they are making five year contracts versus yearly contracts. Ammunition orders under the Bush administration were around 230 million rounds per year so the increase isnt that much. (also note, many of the billions stories make it appear they are actually getting that much delivered, which isnt true, they are simply contracting a negotiated price for up to a certain amount for a period of time).
What has changed, however, is going to half-decade contracts at one time. This has created bottlenecks in the system that has impacted supply and is in part, causing the shortages you are seeing now.
Why do they need so much ammo?
Good points but it doesn’t really explain it all away, particularly the military exercises.
I think that is the goal of Barry and Napolitano: Dry up the supply of ammo — this is the most efficient way to do it - buy it all up now ostensibly under a 5-year contract. Then, do whatever you need to do with the Sheeple on your own timetable.
