PostSubject: Obama Pentagon To Destroy $1 Billion Worth Of Ammo    Wed Apr 30, 2014 1:50 pm

So while taking much needed and valuable ammunition from our troops and destroying it rather than have them train with it seems pretty Ludacris to me. Not only do ground troops not have enough ammo to properly train most of the time but there is also a huge ammo shortage still going on in many places around this country.

So why destroy it? Why not just disburse it evenly throughout the combat units of our military so that they can get some more training done with their weapons. Or why not sell it to the public to help the military budget out.

The most disturbing thing about this is not just that they will be destroying these munitions but while doing so the administration is building a domestic army within the DHS and other various agencies and is arming these agencies with military hardware and millions if not billions of rounds of ammunition. That just doesn't work for me. To me it seems as if this Presidents policy is to weaken the military all while providing a domestic army that is loyal to him and not the Constitution. The truth is President Obama despises the military and would like to see them fail against his new SS that he created out of the DHS. My guess is they are trying to weaken the military to a point that it would be too dysfunctional to come to the aid of civilians being tyrannized. I also believe this is not going to stop anytime soon.

This administration has purged more high ranking military officers than any other administration in history. There is a reason for it and is speculated that the purged officers would have stood in the way of Obama future plans to enact totalitarian control over American citizens.

The Pentagon plans to destroy more than $1 billion worth of ammunition although some of those bullets and missiles could still be used by troops, according to the Pentagon and congressional sources.

It’s impossible to know what portion of the arsenal slated for destruction — valued at $1.2 billion by the Pentagon — remains viable because the Defense Department’s inventory systems can’t share data effectively, according to a Government Accountability Office report obtained by USA TODAY.

The result: potential waste of unknown value.

“There is a huge opportunity to save millions, if not billions of dollars if the (Pentagon) can make some common-sense improvements to how it manages ammunition,” said Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., and chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. “Despite years of effort, the Army, Navy and Air Force still don’t have an efficient process for doing something as basic as sharing excess bullets. This Government Accountability Office (GAO) report clearly shows that our military’s antiquated systems lead to millions of dollars in wasteful ammunition purchases.”

The Army and Pentagon, in a statement, acknowledged “the need to automate the process” and will make it a priority in future budgets. In all, the Pentagon manages a stockpile of conventional ammunition worth $70 billion.

The effect of inaccurate accounting of ammunition for troops at war was outside the scope of the study. However, there were limited supplies at times of .50-caliber machine gun and 9mm handgun ammunition at the height of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a senior military officer who spoke on condition of anonymity to talk about the issue.

“We simply cannot afford this type of waste and ineffectiveness,” Carper said. “The (Pentagon) has a responsibility to efficiently manage its ammunition stocks, not only because it is important to be fiscally responsible, but also because our antiquated ammunition inventory systems can shortchange our war fighters and compromise their ability to complete their mission.”

Other key findings from the report:

• The services have inventory systems for ammunition that cannot share data directly despite working for decades to develop a single database. Only the Army uses the standard Pentagon format; “the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps operate with formats that are obsolete.”
