Wow i don't know how true this is but if its real it sure is scary Basically someone has come out and said that yes the U.S government is
planning another false flag attack
This is nothing more than a form of media snake-oil, palm reading, or fortune telling.
"Something big and important just happened in your life."
- When hasn't someone experienced something big and important 'recently?'
You read into what is being said. In 3 years, when something happens, people will point back to this report and say: "see, he predicted it! He had
People do this same thing with Nostradamus.... hundreds of years later.
The article also mentions that in the past 3 years the federal government has purchased over 1.4 billion rounds of ammo
That's fairly irrelevant.
Annual ammunition sales in America number 7-10 billion rounds of ammunition.
The U.S. Treasury Department, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau reported an estimated 12 billion rounds of ammunition were purchased
between November 2008 and November 2009, compared to the average 7 to 10 billion rounds of ammunition purchased annually. In fact, tax revenue from
ammunition sales advanced 49 percent during the first half of 2009, compared to the same time frame in 2008. Ammunition manufacturers found themselves
working at full capacity in an attempt to keep up with demand, following a nationwide ammunition shortage spurred by the election of Barack Obama. Gun
owners were worried about taxes being added to ammo as well as new laws that could affect production of ammunition, and firearms and related products,
including ammunition, flew off the shelves of U.S. retailers.
So, I'm not really all that concerned.
We blew through about 35,000 rounds of ammunition of various calibers for our weapons qualifications for a relatively small unit. Shot at nothing but
targets. Mobilization work-ups chew through huge amounts of ammunition - more than what gets shot in most war zones these days.
1.4 billion rounds sounds about right for keeping up with the average usage over a 3 year period.
