DHS ordering 2700 Light tanks? What do they possibly need these for?
Where? the un-employed line?
To transport senators between their office and brothel.
In the case of the female senator that would be between the office and sisthel.
Now we find they have 2,700 mine resistant armored trucks to "protect us"? I think NOT
And by the way, if the sequester is so severe, why are we giving the Muslim Brotherhood 1/4 billion dollars this year? This is AFTER the F-16's and the 200 Abraham tanks - makes you wonder.........................
obama said in 2008 that he was going to create an domestic army equal, or larger, than our present military. No one asked why it would be needed (like a lot of other things). In the next couple of weeks you will hear of more purchases like this one, the ammo buy and 1,000 drones. We are in for a take-over of some form. It ain't going to be good.
We already have a "domestic army". I'm in it, and so are you!
DHS?? Department of Homeland Security? Homeland Security---HELLO, HELLO---what is the Department of Defense for then??
It was created in 2002, not 2008, by GWB&Co. Now you know who to think. Lets give credit where credit is due!!
Does it protect our borders??? Does it protect our school children?? Then someone tell me what it is for.
It already has 240,000 employees and hiring more and has a budget of $61 BILLION dollars.
Just another false Internet rumor--one of many.

Thanks Vic for the insight.
Note: That I do not agree with a need for DHS ( at its inception or now) It is simply a duplicate or triplicate of other gov. agencies.
Rapid response teams to disaster sites? What is that? Were they present at the NJ Sandy storm? What happened to the use of buses?

I had a friend of mine tell me about this last week. Though in his version he said 10,000 and that the order was placed with a company in Texas. He also stated that they have ordered 1.? billion rounds of "hollow point" ammo.

Just the fact that he used the term billion and hollow point connected with ammo was a red flag. We all know that for the most part (not exclusively) hollow point ammo is not what would be used for military style weapons because of feeding issues.
So far I have not found anything to confirm the order of the Armored vehicles but there was minor evidence of ammo being ordered but not listing it as hollow point.
The only reason I can see for this would be... well ... since as I remember the US military is forbidden from being actively used against US civilians maybe the Govt. Feels they can use DHS to keep us in line......just a thought. Not to say I believe it, just a thought.

Its all to get rid of all of us so the new world order with Soro's in charge can take over.
vern you are all wet and way behind modern technology
every m9 pistol the mil owns will feed 'hollow points"; every m16 esp m4, config will feed "hollow points".
the hollow points CURRENTLY IN USE by the mil are reffered to as OTM..OPEN TIP MATCH....ITS IS A 77 GR LOAD bullet by sierra. along with 168 and 175's in 30 cal.
the RULES banning "hollow points" ,hague convention i think,..is about war...and does not cover shooting religious zealots in an armed conflict......the mil has used hp's in the last 5 yrs.......noT all but select use.
current airport security..tsa..shoot 357 sig with a 125 gr HOLLOW POINT.
