The Department of Homeland Security has issued an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, much of it,* hollow point rounds, forbidden by international law for use in war. Moreover, the Department of Homeland Security is taking delivery of an undetermined number of the recently retrofitted 2,717 ‘Mine Resistant Protected’ MaxxPro MRAP vehicles for service on the streets of the United States.
The question is, why would any government purchase billions of rounds of ammo, militarize the police (Many local police departments, even some in very small communities, are being armed to the teeth by federal grants and military hand-me-downs. This includes drones and armored personnel carriers), while tracking every thing a citizen does, etc? Perhaps it's to secure the border between the U.S. and Mexico. Perhaps it's to drive up market price for consumers, and kill supply, back-door gun control, ammo control. Perhaps it's to neutralize domestic resistance if, let's say, the economy collapses entirely.
However, the real reason I'm posting this is not for the information, because the arms build-up by the DHS is basically old news--alternative media reported on this months ago--but because it comes from a so-called legitimate media source: FORBES.
* The Hollow Point Round Is Outlawed In War By The Geneva Convention, Why?
A military round rotates as it travels through the air at about 15,000 rpm. When a hollow point round hits flesh it begins to spread open like a flower but the metal petals of this flower shaped round is razor sharp. Its a razor sharp pin wheel rotating through a body at 15,000 rpm. The hollow point creates all kinds of damage to its human target and actually whips the insides of a body like a cake mixer. It is intended to create horrible wounds that cannot be treated. Surgeons risk cutting their fingers while removing the razor sharp hollow point rounds or fragments of this bullet.Links:

“Internment and Resettlement Operations”
Page 38 clearly states that it applies to U.S. territory.
Para. 10-40 says Internment and Resettlement may be done in support of DOMESTIC operations (for natural and “man made” disasters).
Page 146 directs that social security numbers are to be placed on the second line.
