Bullets over Iraq
U.S. HAS USED 250,000 BULLETS FOR EACH INSURGENT KILLED“Officials” get around this obvious ridiculous figure by saying that a large number of these bullets are used for “training purposes.” I propose that many, many more civilians and others have been shot than reported.
ANDREW BUNCOMBE - US forces have fired so many bullets in Iraq and Afghanistan - an estimated 250,000 for every insurgent killed - that American ammunition-makers cannot keep up with demand. As a result the US is having to import supplies from Israel. A government report says that US forces are now using 1.8 billion rounds of small-arms ammunition a year. The total has more than doubled in five years, largely as a result of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as changes in military doctrine. . .
