a day or so to get ammo, because its all accounted for, you even have to return the brass and its weighed to ensure you returned what was used, the
army supply system can be insane.
I think your description of supply chain gives you a lot of your answer. Once this guy opened fire, it's not like a scene in a movie, where a bunch
of soldiers run into the room where the fully loaded AKs are hanging on the wall and a jump cut later they are in position on roof tops.
At the same time, the proficiency of the attack is stunning. The timing of the incident somewhat curious (unless you ignore the DC protest and focus
on the shooter's imminent deployment). The communication on this thing was a clusterfornication of the highest order. The results are certainly
My main thought against conspiracy in this case is this: when the shrink at the largest military base in the country loses his proverbial feces and
kills a bunch of people, it will absolutely shed a LOT more light on the mental stress that our soldiers are being put through in these absurd wars.
I'm not quite sure what it is that the powers that be have to gain from this. Sure they could try to spin the recent conversion to Islam angle for a
"we need to fight them there, so we don't have to fight them at home" campaign. Considering how long we've been fighting them over there, I
don't think that story will hold water.
Frankly that's the only angle I can find that would be even remotely "good" for TPTB. Ultimately, this looks like a PR nightmare.
What do you think is the conspiracy related purpose of the attack.
