Iraq War Causes Police Ammo Shortage! Except, Not ReallyThe Associated Press turned in yet another news tale, reporting that there is a huge shortage of ammunition available for police around the country, due to the ammo demands of the Iraq War.
Confederate Yankee actually asked the two largest ammo manufacturers in the country to verify this report and, strangely, their accounts differs massively from the AP's. Apparently, the shortages are due to increased demand among police for ammo, and increased demand for copper in China. The largest manufacturer of ammunition in the country, ATK, doesn't even manufacture military and police ammo in the same production line.
The AP: who needs editors when you're just makin' stuff up.
Update: Confederate Yankee informs us in the comments that a third manufacturer, Remington, also denies the AP's report.

Makethat three manufacturers. Remington just denied it as well.

But everyone knows that the War in Iraq has made us less safe. We're just looking for how that is, exactly. But have no fear, the AP is on the case! They will eventually discover how it is that we are less safe.
What would we do without them, eh?

The war in Iraq makes us less safe by creating Iraqi refugees who come to America.
How does this make us less safe? Because all Moslems in the West are a threat to our safety.
Why are all Moslems in the West a threat to our safety? Because even though most Moslems aren't terrorists, most terrorists are Moslems. Because a certain percentage of Moslems will, no matter what, continue to attack us--whether successful or not. Because even the Moslems that don't attack us tacitly support the ones who do. Because Islam calls for the imposition of sharia law worldwide, and devout Moslems will stop at nothing to achieve that end.
Islam is unable to peacefully coexist with any other system. Just look at its 14 centuries of war, conquest, murder, and forced conversion, and you'lll see why I say that.
We in the West used to know that Moslems are our enemies: not because we say so, but because they do. We have forgotten that, much to our detriment.
We do not have to kill them, or even try. All we have to do is stop them from coming here, and encourage the ones who are here to go back to their (ancestral) homes.
And that is why the war in Iraq has made us less safe.

Nathan, I think it would be grossly unfair to those muslims who just want to muddle through life like the rest of us to say that they are a threat to us.
