As the government takeover over local and state police forces increases, the federal government seems to be ramping up their efforts to weaken the military.
This week a Pentagon report surfaced showing a federal government plan to destroy more than $1 billion worth of military ammunition. While the feds say tracking issues left them unable to determine whether almost 1.2 billion in stockpiled ammunition was still viable, with wars raging for over a decade now in the Middle East it’s highly unlikely that any of this ammo was sitting for very long.

Troubling cuts to troop levels, and the Theft of Military

Equipment

While the Federal Government pumps billions of dollars into programs aimed at militarizing local and state police forces – all through the watchful eye of the Department of Homeland Security – they are at the same time planning massive cuts to our military forces.

The current Pentagon budget proposal will purge almost 80,000 army officers from the military, creating the smallest U.S. Army force since the 1940’s. They also plan to:

Eliminate the entire fleet of A-10 “warthogs”.
Retire at least 11 Navy cruisers.
Retire the George Washington aircraft carrier.
Eliminate the KC-10 tanker fleet.
Purge over 20,000 Marines from the military.
Force roughly 90,000 servicemen and women to seek civilian jobs.
Purge as many as 50,000 people from the Army Reserves and the Army National Guard

You really have to wonder who this administration sees as the enemy.
