Maybe they can borrow some from the DHS who just purchased almost 2 billion rounds of ammo...

Oh please. This is a neo-con bs flame-bait article.

Take one F-22 offline for a couple of months. Bullet problem solved.

Patriots at home could donate some of their hoard, but they're saving them to kill Marines.

You know, I don't know which race is worse.  You don't see them farking each other over for a goddamn percentage.

born_yesterday: Only Obama would place marines on active duty in hostile territory without ammunition.


Good to know we still have a large stockpile of weapons-grade stupidity.

But that would solve the military's problem, rather than creating an artificial "crisis" caused by the sequester that Obama can capitalize on.

Notice how all these "ZOMG, sequester is makiing you lose out on XXXX" stories don't hold up to even light scrutiny and are all from departments of the government that answer directly to the President?  Come on, you really believe the Marines are suddenly faced with a bullet shortage after one week of this nonsense??  DoD has billions of rounds of ammo in supply reserves.  This is another direct order from the White House to get another media frenzy going over sequestre.  Commandant of the Marines has not choice but to parrot this drivel aftr b eing ordered to by his CiC.  Same as the aircraft carrier stuck in port, etc.  Manufactured outrage.

The military is never short on ammo.  There are millions or rounds of .223 and every other caliber we've use for the past 100 years stockpiled at weapons depots around the country.  Earle in Colts Neck has vast underground bunkers filled with the stuff.

Yeah. We can just steal from them. Not like the Coast Guard ever does anything anyway. farkin' Pussies, man. The Core is the real American Hero (GI JOE!!!!!)


lolwut?

First... 2 billion rounds of ammo is enough ammo to conduct a 20 year war based on the calculations of how many round of ammo were used between both iraq and iran... so what does the DHS need with 2B rounds of ammo that they can't spare some for other departments?

Second... the point is... the DHS purchased 2B rounds of ammo and the marines are running low... wtf...

Answer is obvious, nuke it from orbit. Only way to be sure.

You just gotta be a fan of a country that has conspiracy nuts worrying, at the same time,  that the government is buying all the ammo, and that they are not buying enough.

Here's an idea, everyone who ponied up 1.5x or more the normal price for ammo in the last three months: send a box to the Marines (assuming proper type of course). Congrats, you helped the economy AND supported the troops.
