I have to wonder sometimes about the timing of everything. I don't mean the collapse / troops coming home etc as separate instances but the collective picture.

The collapse, in my opinion, is the market predicting something quite large. What if the bailouts are more like a payout before there is no physical market left?

The markets I've been playing in for the past 5 years have collapsed long before this. The funny thing is that the volume of purchases in the resource stocks now are out to lunch. I'm down a good 73% from the highs, but breaking even in a time when the stocks I hold should be 1000+% out of necessity and a rush for bullion etc. It all makes no sense.
If I put 2 & 2 together I get 3. The markets are predicting something alright.

Scary times for sure. But the troops deployed home are very good people with the best intentions and I think they are expecting unrest of the sort we can't yet understand or see right now. There could very well be a segment of society that will uprise, riot and hurt a lot of innocent people. I really do believe this. Once the craziness begins I think it will all seem clear who the perceived threat is. Think LA riots multiplied by 10 or so. All of the more oppressed segments will have nothing to lose. Especially the unprepared.

When the SHTF, lay low and fortify. Be prepared for a good month or so locked up in your own little pieces of calm. You should develop a "buddy plan" and not reside alone for a while when the SHTF. I think we will all wish the military was in our neighborhood when the mobs are out. Seriously, I do think there's an element of truth and need to all of this. With beans, noodles and water don't forget items you can use in your defense. Though I don't think residential areas are going to be the victim in all of this. Better safe than sorry I guess.

Here is a twist. Banks fail and people don't react at all in a negative way, instead love and compassion starts to show itself again.

Troops are order to patrol streets, but people show no anger or resentment. Now what?

Nothing in Columbus,Ohio yet. Somehow I think they will wait for the bill to pass or to fail and depending on the public's response, they would deploy at 3 am to be in place when most people woke up tomorrow.

If that is their intent.

The impression I have about this brigade is that it's under orders to immediately response to a crises anywhere in the US. I really don't think u will see it marching down the street in front of your house unless your street is targeted by someone, something, or whatever. please get a grip! the gov is fearmongering and this ATS site continues to fear monger. and if troops come down the street- just what the hell are you going to do about it? nothing. as it should be. but if they do barge into your house- you have a right to defend yourself- so til that time, just get a damn grip on it.--

A friend of mine was once told that he wasn't happy unless he was sad. That turned out to be true. I just think there are some people that aren't happy unless they're worried.

One day it's portable prisons, the next it's FEMA coffins, the next it's American troops being deployed to keep us all in check.

Why doesn't anyone take the Army at their word as to why this brigade is deployed here? An emergency response force. What about that is so hard to believe? They're here to HELP us, not enslave us. People whine and complain about the troops being overseas and that they need to be brought home. Now they are, and this is what comes of it.

Why is that so hard to believe?

I actually don't think it is all that hard. Some people just aren't happy believing that.

Fett, you do know that the news of the brigades coming to the US was taken right out of a US MILITARY SIGHT???

It is real. It is not made up. Having said that, i will report you now to mod for not playing "nice" and poking fun at people.

Have a good day

wow seeing the military in your homeland is a big deal?

I used to see loads of trains full of tanks etc when waiting for my train in Bielefeld. This was back in 2005/2006.

Unsuprisingly it didnt intrest anyone and I see nothing has happened here in Germany, so go figur...


I also felt no need to post about it as this is something normal in the real world outside your door.

Hi DG.

Didn't have time to read all the posts on this thread, so forgive me if this has already been posted. It's an article about the erosion of the Posse Comitatus Act, which is supposed to keep the U.S. military from being used domestically. Anyway, this information may contribute to the premise of your thread.

Posse Comitatus Act


The Posse Comitatus Act has traditionally been viewed as a major barrier to the use of U.S. military forces in planning for homeland defense.[1] In fact, many in uniform believe that the act precludes the use of U.S. military assets in domestic security operations in any but the most extraordinary situations. As is often the case, reality bears little resemblance to the myth for homeland defense planners. Through a gradual erosion of the act’s prohibitions over the past 20 years, posse comitatus today is more of a procedural formality than an actual impediment to the use of U.S. military forces in homeland defense.

Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1

3rd Infantry’s 1st BCT trains for a new dwell-time mission. Helping ‘people at home’ may become a permanent part of the active Army
By Gina Cavallaro - Staff writer
Posted : Tuesday Sep 30, 2008 16:16:12 EDT

The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys.

Now they’re training for the same mission — with a twist — at home.

Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks.

It is not the first time an active-duty unit has been tapped to help at home. In August 2005, for example, when Hurricane Katrina unleashed hell in Mississippi and Louisiana, several active-duty units were pulled from various posts and mobilized to those areas.

But this new mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom, a joint command established in 2002 to provide command and control for federal homeland defense efforts and coordinate defense support of civil authorities.

After 1st BCT finishes its dwell-time mission, expectations are that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that the mission will be a permanent one.

“Right now, the response force requirement will be an enduring mission. How the [Defense Department] chooses to source that and whether or not they continue to assign them to NorthCom, that could change in the future,” said Army Col. Louis Vogler, chief of NorthCom future operations. “Now, the plan is to assign a force every year.”

It is of CONCERN. Its never been heard of before in the United States!
Those who pretend not to be concerned are in denial. Just that. Denial.

It may not be anything, then again, it may be quite serious. Its certainly worth talking about as opposed to "My mother is an Alien"


Then it is of POSSIBLE concern...the second part of your post proves that, you just fail to see it. I was only trying to help with my post for those who don't understand that this is a threat, and people are very concerned...particularly to post by rocksarerocks.

Aparently the second line in your title proves to be true and you are so overly paranoid that you are unable to discern those that are against you and those that were trying to help.

There is a nice answer. Thank you for your civility and showing me that this may turn out to be nothing at all.
I am here to learn.
Thanks, friend!!!!!

The way I see it, I would rather they train here and be ready in an emergency than not train to prevent people from freaking out and not be ready if something catastrophic happens. Katrina anyone? No one was ready for that one and look at what happened. I see nothing wrong with them having field/ training exercises state-side in towns so long as they don't block traffic.


edit to add: Obviously I wouldn't want anyone civilian or not to be harmed during these exercises, but figured I should probably say so before the most paranoid of us tries to say otherwise.

On the contrary, I thought I was showing you the opposite - that in spite of what people may think, there is nothing really standing in the way of what you think might be going to happen.

You're welcome, anyway.


Take good care of yourself - especially if things start to get wierd, OK?

Quick question for all participants: How many of you have or are building emergency kits?

Been there done that. Not just for things like this, but any natural or man-made disaster. Prepared to defend my family, as well.

Would it be possible for someone to point me in the direction of an article source that states what this thread is talking about?
I don't seem to see where this news is coming from other than ATS.
I am very curious to see just what everyone is talking about here in this thread.
Thanks in advance...
