The current government need an enemy.
And I don't mean just the Obama Regime. I mean the previous administrations and probably the future administrations.
This type/style of authoritative government can only exist if it has an enemy.
If things were peaceful, if we all could get along, this government would cease to exist.
Therefor it needs, it requires enemies. Foreign and domestic.
It requires strife. It places stresses upon the citizenry in order to justify it's existence.
It creates enemies where none existed before.
It is, oh, how do you say it? Quite progressive in its behavior.

I often try to think of how an opponent might describe and support things in a debate.
But I can't, for the life of me, find a way where I could rationally and logically support internment camps.
Perhaps that's my problem.
c) . . The disposition of a person under the law of war . . may include the following:
(1) Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force. . .

The Japanese were interned for not saying squat they were thrown in 'fema' camps of their days based on nothing but because they were 'Japanese'.
The DIFFERENCE here is that both Germany, and Japan were actual STATES. Unlike 'terrorists'.
In a revealing admission in June, 1997, the Director of Resource Management for the U.S. Army confirmed the validity of a memorandum relating to the establishment of a civilian inmate labor program under development by the Department of the Army. The document states, "Enclosed for your review and comment is the draft Army regulation on civilian inmate labor utilization" and the procedure to "establish civilian prison camps on installations."
Amid widespread rumors, Congressman Henry Gonzales clarified the question of the existence of civilian detention camps. In an interview, Gonzalez stated, "The truth is yes -- you do have these stand by provisions, and the plans are here...whereby you could, in the name of stopping terrorism...evoke the military and arrest Americans and put them in detention camps."

It seems Wesley Clark got paid off at some point in recent years.
He used to be critical on the so-called "war on terror".
In addition to the internment camp notion, Clark's statement also implies a "Minoritly Report" pre-crime style of justice. Get people before they do anything.
BTW, the term "self-radicalized lone wolf" is the biggest load of who-ha TPTB have fed the American public in quite awhile.

Careful what you say on TV, Wes. Some people might get the wrong idea...
"In World War II, if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn't say that was freedom of speech. We put them in a camp," Clark continued, "They were prisoners of war."
"If these people are radicalized, and they don't support the United States, and they're disloyal to the United States, as a matter of principle, fine, that's their right, but it's our (the government's) right and our obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict. And I think we're going to have to get increasingly get tough on this."
...although I don't know how else that could really be interpreted.
I thought some of you might find this interesting. I especially found the "lost a job/girlfriend" part interesting. Basically, if you're going through any kind of common difficulty in your life, you are at-risk for radicalization and need to be... looked at.
It's coming, folks. They grow more and more brazen by the minute, relying on our own ignorance as their cover.
