What about they fire up some regular ammunition plants to give more ammo to the people?

And hopefully when the revolution begins, this plant will be seized by the resistance to use, or destroyed if used by the government.

backslider I have to agree with you on this i do believe something is in the works way too much going on to deny it, my only question is WHAT? im not sure but wuld like to know maybe this is a sign that we the people may need to start thinking about what to do in different situations. i am not saying oh lets all go join militias (because i know that will be some peoples first thoughts) but I do think it may be time to take notice and prepare for anything

From what i understand there is a new group of guided artillery shells in the works plus a lot of extra small guided bombs that produce a lot less collateral damage.

With the types of conflicts were are having now much of the bigger is better stockpile is unusable and they need to start producing the high accuracy small stuff.

I know that the Navy at China Lake has developed a number of these smaller is better weapons.

Reflecting on this last night gave me pause.
Why would they need more artillery and mortar rounds?
Afghanistan, Iraq? probably not.
What kind of targets are these rounds for?
Hardened targets/ urban warfare
Possibly for a war that hasn't yet begun.

That's what's got me rubbing my chinny chin chin... too...
why... why... now that were supposedly downsizing and removing troops...
why these rounds made for US manufactured weapons... meaning many other countries use other arms that use Russian Chinese or north Korean shells...

surely this is not a Shovel ready project.... there's more going on here... just I'm out of the loop but smart enough to realize there is reason behind this...

Technically all the government did to suppossedly pull troops out of iraq was change their names from "basic combat teams" to "advise and assist teams" nothing more nothing less

No Problem. I live about 80 miles southwest of the facility myself. I've been up around that area a few years back for work, but do not recall seeing anything going on there.

I was just looking at some old maps and saw that facility listed a day or so ago and wondered what happened to it. Very interesting if it was idled for BRAC and is now being brought back online. My thought is that if we aren't tidying up our own stockpiles, we're most likely sending a bunch of it to the Libyan rebels. Another possibility is that we are seeing Russia lick their chops at the Arctic and someone is thinking "I might want a few more rounds just in case..."

Either way, it doesn't smell too good. Many of the scenarios in which you would see the reopening of an ammunition plant are for engagements or soon-to-be engagements. I just hope its someone at the Pentagon thinking they need to restock the shelves for the next SecDef.

Rumors are a buzz with an impending Israeli attack on Iran. And if there is any connection to this plant reactivation, it would be curious because there is a lot of land between Israel and Iran. That would lead me to believe that NATO could be involved- as in, firing some of these new artillery munitions into Iran from Iraq. Just speculating.
