Tyler, Tx (KETK) — I am not a conspiracy person at all. I try to stay away from the black helicopter stuff because simply, I never believe it.
Reading about it again in Forbes magazine peaked my interest again this week.
One thing which has really had me concerned is the 1.6 billion bullets the Department of Homeland Security reportedly bought.
Some of those bullets said to be hollow-points. Even the military doesn't use hollow points.
Why does Homeland Security need them? I've heard urban combat. Where?
I have gone round and round-- no pun intended-- with those who tell me the DHS and other feds need to train with hollow points because that's what they will use in an emergency situation.
I still ask why?
Hollow points are expensive and it's not going to be any different at all practicing with ball ammo.
Also reported elsewhere, at the height of the Iraq War, the Army was expending less than 6 million rounds a month. Therefore, 1.6 billion rounds would be enough to sustain a hot war for 20+ years.
Now if you just Google it, some reports say the Department of Homeland Security is buying 2700 tanks, said to be for urban warfare.
What urban warfare? We're told they were war vehicles which were spruced up to fight here.
Maybe 5 or 6, but 2700?
I could see if they were dispersing them on the border, but they're not.
Let me ask you. When was the last time Homeland Security was in a gun fight?
I'm not trying to be outrageous. I really want to know.
Do you know what's going on here?
I don't, but I am not liking what I see.
