For those who cannot click the below links:
The Newsmax article title is a bit misleading once you read the article in it's entirety. Noone has given any numbers as to how much of that
ammunition is justifiably bad or unable to be used for whatever reason. However, through interviews quoted in the article, quite a large bit of the
ammunition is indeed usable and is only being destroyed because the branches of the US Armed Forces don't share excess ammo, hence, they just destroy
it....for fiscal reasons and budgets is my personal guess.
This article has far deeper meanings to those people who will wonder why the Pentagon and other Government agencies have purchased billions of
rounds of ammo in the last few years only to destroy some of it....or all of it, who knows. Is this to create a manufactured shortage of ammunition?
It amazes me how fiscally responsible the government wants it's citizens to be when it comes to paying taxes but when it comes to using those
dollars responsibly by those responsible, responsibility goes out the door.
Also connected to this story was an unrelated article on the same page about how local police departments are facing a shortage of ammunition.
This only bolsters the notion that there is indeed some nefarious government plot to suppress the availability of certain types of ammunition.
I will do a bit more digging to see if I can find any verifiable numbers when it comes to the percentage of good/usable ammunition that's due to
be destroyed along with the unusable. In the meantime, I'm curious as to what the ATS community has to add.
