Ok, even if there was no plot whatsoever to subjugate the population by force... Can we all agree that this sounds like government overspending?

Think of what is not publicly known, that's just a contract among many, we can't keep track of military assets in truth, we have just a fraction of the image, and we don't remember or care about past contracts, there will be another one in the future, will you remember this one?

My point is that we should not believe our governments to be saints because they are elected democratically, and nobody have more knowledge about how things may develop in the future than governments, and they won't tell the truth of such predictions, you're lucky if some documents get on wikileaks.

My belief Is that in somewhat 10 years, there will be widespread troubles, and there may be no other solution to control the population than using military personnel, and that may go to the extent of, yes, civil war. I see those wars in the middle east as target practice, every chances we get we send troops play there with weapons while singing democracy, which is just a coat to make capitalism pretty, but when people will revolt against Democracy-Capitalism, who will come to the rescue? You think it will react differently than all those countries? No, it will do exactly the same, defend its institutions, attack opposition, 2 clans will form, those who want to keep the current political ways, and those who want a new way of doing things.

I have chosen my side long ago, even if it is the wrong side...

I don’t remember all the details, but what they actually did was to sign a contract to buy up to X number of rounds of ammo to be delivered as needed at a set price. They aren’t having a billion rounds delivered. Just a contract signed to set a good price. Also, If I remember correctly, a lot of it is target ammo, not hollow point. That makes more sense since you use fifty times more target ammo for training.
