This is a direct unforeseen 'Part 2' to the thread created the other day with respect to this topic. I will link it for your convenience ATS Link. Those that read the previous thread already know my views and thoughts on this subject, this is not doom porn, propaganda or anything but Awareness!
There are many links in the several links I provided, a wealth of information is here, for anyone interested in what our armed forces are training to do, I suggest the pdf's a good place to start.

Future operations will neutralize groups which 'undermine the authority of the state'


The U.S. Army is preparing to fight political dissidents who challenge the power of the state as “megacities” become the battleground of the future, according to a new report in the Army Times.
The article (The Army Times) details how the Army’s Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC) worked with US Army Special Operations Command, the chief of staff’s Strategic Studies Group and the UK’s Ministry of Defence earlier this year to wargame the future of armed combat, which will revolve around the neutralization of groups “who can influence the lives of the population while undermining the authority of the state”, a chillingly vague description which could easily be applied to political dissidents.
The plan foresees an unprecedented realignment of U.S. military strategy focused around putting “boots on the ground” in megacities to deal with “politically dispossessed” populations while relying on “more lethal and more autonomous” methods.


A 2012 study by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland which was funded by the Department of Homeland Security lists Americans (InfoWars) who are “reverent of individual liberty” and “suspicious of centralized federal authority” alongside violent terrorist groups.


Earlier this year we also highlighted how the U.S. Army built a 300 acre ‘fake city’ in Virginia (InfoWars) complete with a sports stadium, bank, school, and an underground subway in order to train for unspecified future combat scenarios.
The city included a Christian chapel and subway signs in English, suggesting it was intended to double as a domestic town in addition to an overseas location.

Below are excerpts from an uncovered U.S. Army training document which details standards for “full scale riots” within the US.



The most shocking aspect of the document is the fact that it describes the deployment of a “lethal response” directed against “unarmed civilians,” including “sniper response” and “small arms direct fire.”
Under the heading “sniper response,” the document states, “Ensure that target leaders or troublemakers are targeted,” in addition to a passage which states, “Exploit the psychological effect of an attack.”
Under the heading “small arms direct fire,” the manual states, “Escalate gradually, starting with a small caliber, single round and work up to a large caliber, automatic.”
Another graphic which depicts “escalation of trauma” directs soldiers how to use “riot batons” in order to cause the necessary level of injury or death to the subject. “Deadly force final target areas” include the back of the neck, the solar plexus, the neck, the spine and the head.

The Army Times report is also disconcerting in light of a recently uncovered U.S. Army training document (InfoWars) which detailed preparations for “full scale riots” within the United States during which troops may be forced to engage in a “lethal response” to deal with crowds of demonstrators.
As with previous examples (InfoWars), the manual made it clear that such operations were being planned not just for foreign occupations but for inside the “continental United States (CONUS)” in the event of “unruly and violent crowds” where it is “necessary to quell riots and restore public order.”
The document also describes the deployment of a “lethal response” directed against “unarmed civilians,” including “sniper response” and “small arms direct fire,” while making reference to domestic political upheavals such as the 1999 demonstrations against the WTO in Seattle.
While the U.S. border remains wide open amidst reports of ISIS insurgents planning attacks (BizPacReviews), the fact that the security apparatus of the United States is more concerned with taking on political dissidents inside megacities is likely to prompt fresh outrage.

Keep learning, keep your eyes open and never stop thinking for yourself. We do not have a need for this type of intervention in the USA to the degree they are training for. I find the not only the language alarming, but especially the timing of this.

Be safe, AB

"this is not doom porn, propaganda or anything but Awareness! "

You are 100% correct, if there is anything the military knows is to practice, practice , practice, before any event, exercise, or mission. I am constantly amazed people actually believe there are no camps, and this couldn't happen. They are training, practicing, creating signage, repatriation pamphlets, and building camps. They are practicing searches on roadsides, train stations, airports, and bus stops by viper teams. They purchased bullet proof guard shacks, have cameras along the freeways, spy satellites, drones, they record all phones calls, emails, and internet communications, fusion centers, watch lists, to name a few.

What does anyone think they are preparing for a holiday? Nice job on the post we need to be vigilant in watching them as well. Right now we see preparations, when we no longer see them getting ready it's time to be nervous. If you can't eat it, drink it, or shoot it, you could be in trouble. They know something is coming and so should we.

Ante Thanx for putting this out here. I've known of 'their' preparations for a time now, but what bothers me the most I guess, is, just what do they plan to do to make us retaliate on them so they can put their tactics to use?! I mean all this planning/training is for a reason. One that evidently they know is going to happen, Right?!

Hmmm...
Okay.
Considering most of the extreme anti-government groups hole up in armed little rural survivalist enclaves, the ones who are "on the map" so to say, this might have deeper implications.

How would you keep order in a megacity when government and economics fail which is an inevitability, just how rapidly and drastically are the only unknowns.

A lot of this is linked to InfoWars. A pay for paranoia site at best. I'm still waiting for Alex Jones to sign my arm under the barcode tattoo in the FEMA camp...twenty years now?

Alex is definitely not my first choice as a reliable source, he is among the uber paranoid but as I dove into the pages of information I found myself questioning what I was reading also.
As SyxPak stated above, "Why are they planning for this?"
I was in NJ across the Hudson during 9/11 and watched the 1,000's crossing over they were not riotous mobs, instead calm, walking and helpful to anyone in need.

It bothers me that they are taking the assume the worst possible scenario direction rather then focusing on how to integrate with local civilians/politicians to help restore order in situations that become desperate. We don't need violence after a major storm, earthquake, terrorist attack we need compassion and understanding toward their fellow Americans. If they put as much effort into figuring out a way to work with communities to restore order, as they are doing to militarily restore order we would be in good shape by now. But no, they are choosing the path of, "Do as I say or die plan of action!"
I'm disgusted and increasingly losing faith with our Warlord Power Obsessed Government. And it's not just the USA folks - it's ALL of you!

That's kinda what I was wondering, too.

They aren't practicing "rural combat" like they would if they were concerned about the stereo typical "domestic terrorist". Practicing so much on large metro areas against large crowds really makes you wonder what they are expecting.

My thinking for what's it's worth is a total collapse of our financial system. Extrapolate that out and all the problems it creates and civil unrest would be putting it nicely. There are countries currently in the world working at changing the reserve currency of the world to something other than the US dollar. With our current debt that could push us over the edge.

The only other thing I can think of is a very large EMP either sun created or man made, either way no power would end up with the same result. Anything else would be pretty much localized.

One things for sure it won't be pleasant.

Which proves my point, he is in the business of profiting from the paranoia and fear of others. To NOT have something to be paranoid about would be bad for business. Whether it is credible or not doesn't matter when you profit from it. Actually, the more extreme the claim, the better for business.
The American Cancer Society would have no reason to exist if cancer were cured so very little of their money goes toward cancer research.

But Cancer is still a real threat to people and IMO so can this!

Awareness is not preached, it is presented.

Those were both very plausible scenarios I was pondering as well. Occupy spooked a lot of people who hold the reigns. The solar flare of 2012 probably made people unnerved since it missed, barely.

My money, ironically, is on economic collapse and the political fallout as people in suits point fingers at each other in Washington while the people run to the banks for their money to find no one there.

I would not take it to seriously, it's just a simple training exercise does not mean they expect this scenario to really happen.

I heard that was an elaborate party.
But you are right the Marines do have one small document that explains how to deal with the Zombie Apocalypse.
Thank god too, if they built a city or something to practice in or started compiling data and testing on how to most effectively kill one, I might start to worry!

I tend to agree the result is the same without loss of infrastructure. Anyone in the know will tell you the government pretends to make life and limb most important in something like a terror attack, but it is infrastructure they wish to protect most.

A zombie Apocalypse by any other name would be a CDC emergency viral outbreak, and I doubt it would be fast moving enough to take over a major city.

How do the people doing the training against American citizens apply the Constitution to the way they are suppressing the public's rights?

I would think people would refuse. This makes no sense. I'm once again ashamed of where America has gone.

I think it's the NDAA act that bypasses this, they can even hold you for an indefinite time without charge.

People should refuse but it's too late, in another post I talked about viper teams at truck stops, bus stops, train stations, police checkpoints, TSA airport scanners, etc. I think it's all conditioning to make it feel natural when it goes full scale. They have us in line under control to be checked out when they are ready, and we have stood by to let them do it in the name of security against terrorism.

Would you please link that? I don't talk to LEO. They are trained just terribly. If I wanted to play 20 questions with a moron I wouldn't choose an argumentative ignoramus with a gun.

NDAA Act description on Wiki Wiki Source This was the easiest to find just read the first paragraph past the contents. That pretty much covers what I was talking about.

That is my thought also what they are preparing for.

"If people understood the banking system they would revolt." ~ Henry Ford?

One day the writing will be on the wall for all to see and the people will be pissed of at the journalists, bankers and politicians for the lies. Think rage in the form of guillotine justice.
