Who's the enemy here?
I try not to be paranoid, I really do. Articles like this one make it hard. What's the Department of Homeland Security going to do with 2700 armored vehicles? Combined with their purchase of 1.6 billion round of ammunition, it's pretty disquieting.
Who do they expect to use this equipment on? Who's the enemy? Surely not us citizens. Maybe Canada is going to invade -or Martians.
If they are planning for massive civil unrest one has to ask why? Do they have guilty secrets they are afraid are about to become public? Is the whole thing just pork for the defense industry?
Funny how during a time of massive budget cuts that DHS is on a buying spree.
What's a citizen to do? Unlike the government, we don't have the right to bear tanks. I think it's not too much to ask what the intended use of all this ammo and hardware is for. After all, taxpayers are footing the bill.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
