My People -
For those of you who are up on your history, the following report will not be "blockbusting" news....As with all history.....It's happened before. Wee, who be politically astute and steeped in Knowledge, know that the wheels on the bus go round and round, as history spins in an infinite loop. The frustration comes from the fact that the masses never learn the lessons from yesteryear - or even yesterDAY - because the average mortal has the attention span of a gnat. Such is reality.
Consequently....heeeeerrrrrreeeee wee go again!
The last time this went down was around 1875. So, altho it's been awhile, this is nothing new.....(there IS no such thing - as 'new' - when it comes to what people do) The events of the late 1870's brought Posse Comitatus into existence because the U.S. military, which was called upon to quell widespread rebellion throughout the major cities, had virtually laid waste to entire towns, killing hundreds of civilians through the use of firebombing. And to be sure that art does indeed imitate life, this event was depicted in the movie, "Gangs of New York", several years ago....check it out during your next movie night. It just so happens, that one of my most favorite lines in movie history comes from that particular film......
"The good thing about the poor is, that you can always hire one half of the poor to kill the other half"
Quite unfortunately, that is very true. And the same Powers-That-Be in place NOW, are the same Powers-That-Be back THEN, and they fully understand human behavior.
It ain't rocket-science.
Like all other animals in the realm of creation, the human species, are creatures of habit. The ONLY thing that makes US different, is Free Will.
However, what will make THIS event one with an interesting twist, is that, this time, it will happen under the leadership of "democrats', even more, the leadership of a so-called, "Black President". A mass destruction and oppression - brought about by the very individuals that the masses yielded their power to bring about...."CHANGE".
To call THAT an 'interesting twist', is truly, putting it mildly.......Like I said. Nothing 'new'. But interesting all the same....Even tho the destruction of a people, led by a black man, but written, produced, and directed by white men, is itself, very old script.
"The wheels on the bus go round and round"........Full circle.....
I already know how this is gonna play out.....I've seen this 'movie' a thousand times....Wee-folks shall be first to feel the pain. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to eat popcorn and watch, as ameriKKKa comes Full Circle.....turning it's voracious appetite inward, as it inevitably eats itself.....starting with its' young.
Everyone who has been paying attention has seen this movie and will know how to respond accordingly.....
.......the rest of ya'll are in fo some shit!

U.S. Military Preparing for Domestic Disturbances

A new report from the U.S. Army War College discusses the use of American troops to quell civil unrest brought about by a worsening economic crisis.
The report from the War College’s Strategic Studies Institute warns that the U.S. military must prepare for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States” that could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse” or “loss of functioning political and legal order.”
Entitled “Known Unknowns: Unconventional ‘Strategic Shocks’ in Defense Strategy Development,” the report was produced by Nathan Freier, a recently retired Army lieutenant colonel who is a professor at the college — the Army’s main training institute for prospective senior officers.
He writes: “To the extent events like this involve organized violence against local, state, and national authorities and exceed the capacity of the former two to restore public order and protect vulnerable populations, DoD [Department of Defense] would be required to fill the gap.”
Freier continues: “Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order … An American government and defense establishment lulled into complacency by a long-secure domestic order would be forced to rapidly divest some or most external security commitments in order to address rapidly expanding human insecurity at home.”
International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn warned last week of riots and unrest in global markets if the ongoing financial crisis is not addressed and lower-income households are beset with credit constraints and rising unemployment, the Phoenix Business Journal reported.
Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma and Rep. Brad Sherman of California disclosed that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson discussed a worst-case scenario as he pushed the Wall Street bailout in September, and said that scenario might even require a declaration of martial law.
The Army College report states: “DoD might be forced by circumstances to put its broad resources at the disposal of civil authorities to contain and reverse violent threats to domestic tranquility. Under the most extreme circumstances, this might include use of military force against hostile groups inside the United States.
“Further, DoD would be, by necessity, an essential enabling hub for the continuity of political authority in a multi-state or nationwide civil conflict or disturbance.”
He concludes this section of the report by observing: “DoD is already challenged by stabilization abroad. Imagine the challenges associated with doing so on a massive scale at home."
As Newsmax reported earlier, the Defense Department has made plans to deploy 20,000 troops nationwide by 2011 to help state and local officials respond to emergencies.
The 130-year-old Posse Comitatus Act restricts the military’s role in domestic law enforcement. But a 1994 Defense Department Directive allows military commanders to take emergency actions in domestic situations to save lives, prevent suffering or mitigate great property damage, according to the Business Journal.
And Gen. Tommy Franks, who led the U.S. military operations to liberate Iraq, said in a 2003 interview that if the U.S. is attacked with a weapon of mass destruction, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government.
