Are we going into planning far beyond the middle east?
What is driving the absolute rush to arms? Are they planning for expansion of the mid east conflict?

Ie China, India , Koreas etc...??
That aside, the shear quantity of this stockpile, stinks of some kind of illegality in its procurment ....
How was this company able to purchase or contract to dispose of such a vast quantity?
The Lawsuit indicating they wanted even more of the stuff?
Theres something rotten here that smells real bad to my olfactory system!
Can you say COVER UP? id bet somebody is scrambling to hide the details right now.....
If you are provoking a war, first provide the combatants with enough fire power to sufficiently degrade each other.....then neither becomes a future
I don't think you understand just how much munitions our government has in stockpiles.
If we were using Korean war era rounds in the 90's, how much do you think was produced between the time?
They don't have to have a specific threat to make munitions, they just keep making them.
Our leaders buy in bulk.
We are still using purple hearts from WW2 because in anticipation of an invasion of Japan they ordered 500,000 of them.
