Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to be the first line of defense against insurgents and terrorists. You are to keep the peace, and protect
The catch: We can provide you with the weapons and vehicles that you need to accomplish this mission, but we cannot provide you with ammunition for
those weapons, nor can we provide any fuel for those vehicles. We also can't provide you with the funding to obtain those either.

Well, that's what the Afghan National Police have to do...and we wonder why we are still in Afghanistan!

so we can bring our troops home.
Afghanistan's Broke, Ammo-Starved
Well, I suppose that is a new way of making sure that you don't wear out your welcome when occupying a foreign sovereign nation. Since the Police
have no bullets to use, they have to rely on the U.S. Military to do the shooting for them.
Sounds like a great way to control a populace. Wait a second, I wonder if that's why there's an ammo-shortage in the United States too!
