Or maybe you have a better explanation for this insanity.
The Department of Homeland Security (through the U.S. Army Forces Command) recently retrofitted 2,717 of these ‘Mine Resistant Protected’ vehicles for service on the streets of the United States.
MRAPs for DHS, what could possibly go wrong with that? More inportantlyWTF could they need them for. Simple answer is that DHS had money in an account that was vulnerabel unless spent. So they spent it. But since they have now bought more than 1.7 BILLION rds of ammo and some armored vehicles, I wouldn't be getting too sassy up there in the Republic of Canadia.
