U.S. Army Gives Out $500,000 Armored Trucks FOR FREE … To The Police State (Bloomberg Video)



Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) — The U.S. Army is giving away 13,000 armored trucks, worth about $500,000 each. The 20-ton MRAPs, or Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected trucks, were built specifically to save U.S. soldiers from roadside bombs in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Now the trucks are patrolling U.S. city streets. U.S. law enforcement agencies have received the lion’s share of this high-powered military surplus. (Source: Bloomberg)

  1. They are preparing for the social unrest and panic that is sure to come. Fukushima is the elephant in the room, wait until they confront food prices……the greedy gut speculators will clean up…..or they think.
    In the study of history, one thing comes through loud and clear. Lots of work on the building of a nation, quick stealing and looting on the downfall.
    We are an empire in decline, and Fukushima is simply speeding the process. Like our electronic world, speed is the undercurrent.
    If they keep outsourcing all decent jobs, like fire fighters and police people, they are liable to find those tanks can turn on them as well. But, being short sighted and greedy, they have no imagination.
    The US has become a fascist state, very much like Germany or Italy in the 1930s. A rogue nation, not respected by anyone.

  2. Amusing tip to squidgy: The ancient Romans and residents of Pompeii had wooden speedometers they would hook onto their wagons, or mode of transportation, to give the driver indication as to how many miles they covered in a day. It was crude, but it worked. Had they survived, who knows, speeding tickets might have been in their future as well.
