Putting 1.4 Billion Rounds Into Perspective, And The 1400 lbs Of High Tech Explosives DHS Just Ordered - Video's

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Why is everyone all up in arms about the recent purchase by Homeland security of 1.4 Billion rounds of ammunition?

Our undeclared Foreign War in Iraq Consumes about 70,000,000 (70 Million) Rounds of Ammunition Each Year, which would take about 20 years to consume 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition ordered by the Department of Homeland Security alone, not including all the ammunition ordered by the weather service, Social Security, etc!  20 Years To Use All 1.4 Billion Rounds Of This Ammo?

Is the Department of Homeland security to protect us from foreign terrorists, or to protect the central government from the American people?

Oddly enough ALL the bullets they bought were hollow-points, which have been banned in international warfare since 1899, but somehow our civil authorities find it appropriate?

Hollow-point rounds, which expand in human tissue after impact, causing unnecessary suffering, according to widely accepted international treaties signed following the Hague peace conventions held in the Netherlands in 1899 and 1907.

“We need to be very clear in drawing this distinction: A hollow-point round, which is not permitted!

The DHS Orders Over Half A Ton Of High Tech explosives…

To put the amount of explosives into perspective, Timothy McVeigh used 5,000 pounds of AN and motor racing fuel. RDX has a much greater explosive capacity than racing fuel, and McVeigh was a party to mass murder and destruction that would be on par with these materials being detonated.

Documents reveal that The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has ordered over 1,400 pounds of super high-powered explosives through the (TSA) Transportation Safety Administration set to be delivered on August 31st.

The news comes just after it was reported that the DHS had purchased over 1.2 billion rounds of hollow point bullets and a wide assortment of riot gear.

The new explosives purchase, as highlighted by mainstream news service Government Security News, consists of 1,400 pounds worth of high density ammonium nitrate and A-5 Flake RDX explosives.

According to an explosive materials manual, both of these items are considered ‘high powered’ explosives. High density ammonium nitrate in particular is used in certain types of dynamite.

In case you doubt the validity of the mainstream news report, you can actually locate the purchase statements on the official government website.

If you prefer to see the purchase statements specifically, you can view them here (link downloads the document to your PC). Here is an excerpt from the purchase order:

“The CES requires the 700 pounds of High Density Ammonium Nitrate and 700 pounds of A-5 Flake RDX to provide Canine Explosive Training Aids (CETAs) to NCP participants. The supplier must be able to meet the exact requirements by August 31st, 2012. Substitutions for this product are not acceptable.”

The recent bulk acquisition of bullets, explosives, and war-ready protective gear has been written off by the mainstream media as nothing more than a bare necessity for training.

Of course the amount of hollow point bullets, which happen to be military-grade and in sufficient enough quantity to allocate 4 bullets per American citizen, also happen to be several times the ‘normal’ amount of training-related orders put in by government agencies.

With regards to breaching, the information sheets state:

Demolition/BreachingPRIMASHEET® 1000 is an excellent tool for general demolition applications. It can be easily cut to any desired shape and applied with adhesive or incorporated into a charge holder. The flexible sheet can be applied as strips directly on a the target or used to improvise linear shape charges.

Demolition/BreachingPRIMASHEET® 2000 has a higher density than C-4, is unaffected by charge manipulation, and therefore offers a more consistent performance in all standard applications. It can be easily cut to a desired shape and applied with adhesive or incorporated into a charger holder.

In the face of potential martial law coming either before or after this fall’s election, knowing that this solicitation has become a black ops is frightening, to say the least.

DHS/FEMA now has the ability to carry a plastic explosive more powerful that C4 in a briefcase, that each page can be cut like strips and put around locks to gain entry into the homes of innocent Americans.

And not word will be uttered in opposition by our Congressmen or our other elected voices until it’s too late. As long as they receive a paycheck, they will stay silent.

And the American people will suffer tyranny yet again under the boot of a spineless puppet.

      While I don’t doubt for an instant the purpose of the DHS purchase of ammunition and explosives, and I laud you for writing about it, don’t do yourself a disservice by printing erroneous or wrong information. I am referring to your comment regarding the amount of explosives used by Tim McVeigh to bring down the Murrah building in OKC. I hate to keep beating a dead horse so to speak, but this did not happen, at least not this way!

      McVeigh was arrested and executed “allegedly,” for the crime, but: Ammonium nitrate did not bring down the building for the following reasons:

      (1) It does not have enough detonation velocity, even at contact distance, to cut or destroy concrete reinforced steel.

      (2) Mixing AN with fuel oil(nitro) will increase velocity somewhat, still way below the thresh hold needed. And for proper absorption, the AN has to be ground.

      (3) The AN and fuel were allegedly mixed in Kansas, I believe, and then driven to OKC in the back of a truck, in rainy weather. AN is extremely hygroscopic(water seeking/retentive) and water decreases the effectiveness markedly.

      (4) What was used to detonate the AN? Normally a high explosive booster is required, such as C-4 or dynamite, there was no evidence of this. (5) No prill, none! Prill is pellets of AN that are not detonated, but which are blown out from the blast. II have seen this, complete detonation of prill is almost impossible even with commercial stuff. Homegrown AN would be very “dirty,” but not this time. Perfect detonation by a rank amateur! Right…

      (5) What type of timers, directing the explosion, etc? Way too many holes..

      (6) I can provide you with irrefutable proof that that OKC was much deeper and involved that publicly known… Please don’t parrot the party line!
