MSNBC Front Page - Nation-building may eclipse standard warfare


www.msnbc.msn.com

The Army on Monday will unveil an unprecedented doctrine that declares nation-building missions will probably become more important than conventional warfare and defines "fragile states" that breed crime, terrorism and religious and ethnic strife as the greatest threat to U.S. national security.

American troops are not likely to engage in major ground combat against hostile states as they did in Iraq and Afghanistan, but instead will frequently be called upon to operate in lawless areas.

Firstly, I think that this very short video is the perfect response to this article.




I don't usually do this, but this thread needs to be starred and flagged and favorited.

But that's not enough, it's time to go door to door and spread truth.

Don't be alone, form a group of people, advertise the cause, then once you have enough people then go door to door, get as many as possible to join a movement.

It must all be done in steps otherwise you are just an unorganized hippie.

If I may ask, someone with better political grammar than myself, please explain this in laymans terms. I can't make any since out of it.

Kinda obvious. The world hasn't seen two large, conventional armies move against each other in years, and as more and more nations modernize and moderate, it'll happen less and less often. What nation would want to fight a conventional war with the US or Russia or China? The answer is none, not even each other.

Since you request this of others I have to ask: Have you began doing this yet?

If not do you plan to start in the near future?

This brings to mind Benjamin Fulford. Maybe not everything he said was baloney sauce? A noble and novel idea. Still we need to build our own nation.

Doubt there will be much left when the depression is over. I wonder if we're going to even have a constitution, after the way it's been trashed recently.

I'd like to get away from being the main police force for the world. All in all it's better than being warriors first.....
