Editorial comment – This article was originally published a few months back but has a significant impact on tying the military/police-state occupation we are seeing in America. With the recent exposure to the Ohio National Guard Training Envisions Right-Wing Terrorism, it is important to understand how the US ARMY is also training for so-called extremism and preparing for a civil war. Who are the bad guys? When the military thinks one way and the Citizens think another… who will rise above and clarify the ‘Change’ we can believe in….?
(TheLastGreatStand) – Wow – this article back on February 8th titled: 160 Armed Citizens Confront Town Council and Say: “Stand Down!” sounds like its exactly what the military is training for… so the U.S. Army could be ordered in to “take care of them” if needed. My God the country is becoming a scary place. This isn’t some fringe paper this article was in. This comes right out of the Washington Times and talks about the U.S. Army killing Tee Party folks. Make no mistake – all those articles I’ve been posting for a year and a half, they are now making their way into mainstream media, and no one will say a word about it, mark my words. People should read this and scream bloody murder. ThereSHOULD be a run a depends diapers Instead, Americans will watch American Idol and be able to recite what each Kardashian wore today. Most, even if they read this article will gloss over it. Pretend for e minute i am SCREAMING IN YOUR EAR! This article talks about he U.S. military exterminating Americans. Judge, Jury, and Executioners…. that really ought to make you begin to pay attention to all I’ve been telling you. Revisit the following links:

Imagine Tea Party extremists seizing control of a South Carolina town and the Army being sent in to crush the rebellion. This farcical vision is now part of the discussion in professional military circles. At issue is an article in the respected Small Wars Journal titled “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A ‘Vision’ of the Future.” It was written by retired Army Col. Kevin Benson of the Army’s University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and Jennifer Weber, a Civil War expert at the University of Kansas. It posits an “extremist militia motivated by the goals of the ‘tea party’ movement” seizing control of Darlington, S.C., in 2016, “occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council and placing the mayor under house arrest.” The rebels set up checkpoints on Interstate 95 and Interstate 20 looking for illegal aliens. It’s a cartoonish and needlessly provocative scenario. The article is a choppy patchwork of doctrinal jargon and liberal nightmare. The authors make a quasi-legal case for military action and then apply the Army’s Operating Concept 2016-2028 to the situation. They write bloodlessly that “once it is put into play, Americans will expect the military to execute without pause and as professionally as if it were acting overseas.” They claim that “the Army cannot disappoint the American people, especially in such a moment,” not pausing to consider that using such efficient, deadly force against U.S. citizens would create a monumental political backlash and severely erode government legitimacy. The vision is hard to take seriously. As retired ArmyBrig. Gen. Russell D. Howard, a former professor at West Point, observed earlier in his career, “I am a colonel, colonels write a lot of crazy stuff, but no one listens to colonels, so I don’t see the problem.” Twenty years ago, then-Air Force Lt. Col. Charles J. Dunlap Jr. created a stir with an article in Parameters titled “The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012.” It carried a disclaimer that the coup scenario was “purely a literary device intended to dramatize my concern over certain contemporary developments affecting the armed forces, and is emphatically not a prediction.” The scenario presented in Small Wars Journal isn’t a literary device but an operational lay-down intended to present the rationale and mechanisms for Americans to fight Americans. Col. Benson and Ms. Weber contend, “Army officers are professionally obligated to consider the conduct of operations on U.S. soil.” This is a dark, pessimistic and wrongheaded view of what military leaders should spend their time studying. A professor at the Joint Forces Staff College was relieved of duty in June for uttering the heresy that the United States is at war with Islam. The Obama administration contended the professor had to be relieved because what he was teaching was not U.S. policy. Because there is no disclaimer attached to the Small Wars piece, it is fair to ask, at least in Col. Benson’s case, whether his views reflect official policy regarding the use of U.S. military force against American citizens.
