US Army vs. US Citizens?????



December 28, 2008 – Comments (1)

A new report by the U.S. Army War College talks about the possibility of Pentagon resources and troops being used should the economic crisis lead to civil unrest, such as protests against businesses and government or runs on beleaguered banks.

“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” said the War College report.

The study says economic collapse, terrorism and loss of legal order are among possible domestic shocks that might require military action within the U.S.

International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn warned Wednesday of economy-related riots and unrest in various global markets if the financial crisis is not addressed and lower-income households are hurt by credit constraints and rising unemployment.

This likely has been posted before.....sorry if you are reading it again.  But with this being the Holidays and all, with some of us busy lighting candles, or partying with Santa, or whatever.....a few may have missed it.

I am not saying any of the above will happen.....simply the Pentagon now thinks it is a possiblity and is making preparations for civil unrest.  If the Pentagon thinks economic collapse is a relevant issue....should we at CAPs?????

Should we red thumb or green thumb in the event of an economic collapse???  Which symbols would you red and which would you green???  Just like the Pentagon, Alstry plays to win....regardless what comes our way.

CAUTION!!!!!!....for those of you that actually like the Constitution and its implications....contemplating the above can have serious adverse consequences on your mental well being and potentially your physical health.  For immediate relief of emotional symptoms, my suggestion is try some prosecco with fresh pomegranete sprinkled thoughout....the bubbles causing the seeds to dance will make you smile.....drinking them will make you feel more moderation of don't want the cure to be worse than the disease.....otherwise you might be just like the Fed:)

It's the Pentagon's job to plan for any viable scenario.  The most dire predictions for the next year speak of massive impoverishment and shortages of all kinds, a breakdown of the social safety net, no go areas in some cities, roving predatory mobs, etc.  Local law enforcement may need some help to keep the thugs from taking over.  My main concern is if Dear Leader and his acolytes create this huge civilian defense force The One has talked about.  I see Chavista Red Caps and Nazi brown shirts run amuck.  In that case you may want to invest in shotguns, semi-autos and AR15s.  The Blue Shirts will be answering the phone at 911.  The Armed Forces are sworn to uphold the Constitution and some units may rebel if Dear Leader goes too far.  Then we have a civil war.   On the other hand this might be necessary to fulfil Dear Leader's dream of a socialist utopia where we are all equally poor, except for those farm animals that are more equal.  I don't think all this will happen but it can't be totally ruled out.
