Traditionally, the best way to keep track of future military deployments – absent unexpected events, of course – has been to follow key procurement contracts from the U.S. Department of Defense of mission critical offensive wartime equipment such as weapons and ammo, or, less followed, core defensive components such as kevlar, body armor and other forms of core personal protective gear. These usually take place shortly prior to major “events” involving US armed forces.
Which is why we were surprised to learn that earlier today, the US Department of Defense revealed it had placed a $93 million order for 177,000 ballistic body armor plates from the US military’s traditional supplier of protective equipment, Ceradyne which several years ago was purchased by 3M. Both production and delivery are expected to be concluded over the next several months.
Very disturbing. Our military has been decimated under this administration and a major deployment would stretch us very thin. Perhaps a show of force against Russia is imminent since the globalists are salivating at the prospect of a NATO vs Russia world war 3.
However, it could be something different entirely. The customer here is not a specific branch of the military, but rather the DoD. The armor could be distributed to multiple branches, black ops, intelligence agencies or it could be used for DHS in a domestic conflict.
Regardless, something is up.
