The big thing that doesn't make sense here for a purported war the American people is all the .40 ammo. It's a short-range handgun cartridge for relatively closeup work. If there were really such a "war", citizens with normal hunting rifles would pick them off before they were close enough to use their handguns effectively. On top of that, DHS law enforcement agencies don't have the manpower to take on 315 million people. I doubt DHS itself has enough LEO's to manage an occupation of Wyoming (especially given that the locals probably have more guns & ammo than DHS). At the height of the last major round of "they're going to seize our guns" paranoia (early Clinton years), people did surveys of military personnel and concluded that they would not be turned against us. We currently have about 2.3M in the service (1.45M active duty, 0.85M) reserve, and many are in specialties not useful for domestic suppression, e.g. Air Force missile/bomber/fighter crews & support squadrons and most naval units. At worst they would be outnumbered 130:1, and given that most military won't turn on Americans or wouldn't be useful for that purpose, the ratio will be a lot higher. Another thing to factor in here is that if Washington tries to attack its own, there's good chance that many governors will intervene and not allow national guard units to be federalized. Local law enforcement will probably take their cues from the state level. My own personal theory is that DHS is wasting money while have it. Big budget cuts are looming, and as things are presently structured there are at least three groups of Federal law enforcement (FBI, border patrol, park rangers) that will be seeing serious staff reductions. What we see here is the last big gasp of a corrupt, inept bureaucracy. Has anyone though to ask Suzie what she's missing out on by being on ICE? Law enforcement officers run by a bimbo who makes drunken wisecracks about oral sex are going to take over America? Just color me skeptical, very skeptical!
