Haha. yawn. give me a break. seriously, give us all a break. if you are against a war machine expanding 'foreign' territories, this should be a good thing.

my tax dollars buy their tanks. personally, i would rather see them here than anywhere else. last time i checked humanitarian priorities rank higher than attack priorities in the armed forces. you can sit here an quote all day about a stray bomb that hurt innocent lives, but most intelligent beings tend to migrate away from war zones once they have been established.

the one thing that all soldiers have in common is the plain and simple fact that they are all AMERICANS.

I believe it was 2001 that the G-8 convention was held in my area on Sea Island, Ga.

The words martial law were never uttered but I can assure you we were under complete control of the United States military. Not only military but every available state and county trooper were here in force for several days.

My friend and I Were both single at the time and we are both very curious. We felt it the perfect opportunity to see how close we could get to the actual area where the convention was held. Also an added bonus was the chance to ogle all those men in the military.

Hundreds of our residents left town out of fear that there would be an attack on our town.

My friend and I made a point of going out every evening and riding all over the county and the surrounding islands. We went through many check points. We were one of the few civilian automobiles on the streets.

We went to the closest point on St. Simon's Island that we could get to Sea Island. To our surprise there were about 20 other civilians standing on the beach watching the fun and games. We saw a sky filled with jets and helicopters. Coast guard boats and subs were all over the water.

Finally, after several fake landings, the presidents helicopter landed. A loud roar went up in the crowd. We were touched to see our great military machine in action.

I know what martial law looks like. Please, take some pictures of the troops on our streets. A picture is worth a thousand words.

By the way, we enjoyed our military lock down immensely.

I think most of what gets discussed here is ridiculous. The government may very well be preparing to declare marshal law if the economy collapses.

It would be better than the alternative of complete chaos and social breakdown.

I'm no Bush supporter, but all of this NWO talk is retarded. Entire countries can't agree on how to handle issues, why would the entire world get together behind the scenes. Does the NWO include Africa?

Americans are some of the most corrupt scumbags on the Earth. Why? Because we're AMERICANS, and we can do anything because we're holy. well let me give you a wake up call. You're not American anymore than you are whatever brand name label you're wearing on your t-shirt. People can be led so easily. You don't think the most corrupt Armed Forces in the world, bought out by multinational Corporations and banking cartels, will hesitate to shoot Americans if they become percieved as a threat to their well being?

This is a joke. If I see armed forces on my street, I will get really pissed and maybe wish to choke the living # out of their dumb asses. Therefore, I am a threat... and I will be dealt with. And you will do nothing but cheer them on, because their *jazz hands* AMERICANNNS. America can shove it. I'm tired of it. I'm tired of hearing the word. It makes me want to puke. There's nothing "good" about it. It's just a sterile corporate brainwashed zombified nightmare that I've been unfortunate to snap out of and wake up from only to find that there's nowhere to go and noone to support my relatively new understandings, because everybody is still dancing and singing about *jazz hands* AMERICAAAA yay woohoo we're the best because we are and we say so and we have a cool flag and 1000 channels of teevee and a computerboombox camera spaceship phone with built in microwave your head technology and a temperpedic and a pool filled with potentially harmful chemicals and drinking water filled with harmful chemicals and food filled with harmful chemicals and air filled with harmful cchemicals and streets filled with junkies murderers prostitutes rapists psychopaths dealers muggers
and charlatans of all sorts... all caused by policies and laws and social structure based on what our corporately owned government decides is convenient for the wealthy.

So is it MY military? Would they fight for MY beliefs? Would they stand up for what I think is right. No, because they are just as corrupt and brainwashed as everybody else, if even more so.

The military... another institution that must be wiped off the face of this Earth, along with any society or organization that is not run equally by all people that it affects and is completely transparent and non-confrontational.

I am a free-willed being, and any of those other labels that you could give me and anybody else would be doing everyone a big mentally manipulative disservice.

I will support our troops only when they lay down their weapons forever and step down from their duty to uphold some figment of our collective imagination gone horribly wrong.

We are not in Thailand. We're in America. We're talking about American citizens on American soil.
Americans are wearing the uniforms.

This is fear-mongering.

The scary part is knowing that this all happening, whatever used to be in movies, books, science 'fiction' has now become the latest reality. When will it stop I wonder? Is that not the issue, who is it that needs to stand up to the world to say no were NOT going to take it? [[Personally I think we All do.]]

But most people, like you said, don't even realize exactly what their letting happen. Allowing the government to take this control because of unreasonable fear and anxiety - of which most don't even mourn it every day. Blowing away our freedom for no reason. I can understand going to war, I can't understand going to war and not batting an eye...

[And for the record your right, I CANT point Iraq on a map.. it just goes to show...]

As an American citizen who has ties to the military, I want you to state your proof of this.

You are making FALSE claims with no evidence to back up your claims.

Please stop spreading FALSE FEAR.

Interview with military official regarding this matter:

I'm leaning towards actual civil unrest due to possible events with the upcoming election.

The answers are usually right in front of you.

I'm interested to hear how Naomi Wolf has responded to the Army Times going back on what they said about troops intended for American streets. I live in UK, but found her pretty convincing in the video she made. Has anyone heard anything new from her?

The doom and gloom exhibited by some on this site is getting exhausting. Yes, I know, it's a conspiracy site, but still. The shear magnitude of morons on this place has really caused me to question what the hell I'm doing here!

DG, You can't be serious? Do you really think our sons, daughters, brothers and sisters would take up arms against us? In todays society? Let me guess, the implants the government has been putting in them will re-program their thought process and we'll all be marched into the FEMA camps?

And while I'm on the subject of FEMA camps, please... Do you think there is enough manpower to march three hundred million people into FEMA camps? Oh yeah I forgot, they're going to kill a bunch of us first, then march the rest into the FEMA camps. I really got to get my crazy, stupid, insane, conspiracy theories straight.

I know it's the nature of the beast with this place, but the crap that has not been moved over to skunk works is amazing.

I live near multiple bases and nothing has changed here in Washington. They still let me on the bases for airshows.

If and when something like that happens we probably won't be posting about it here. Half my neighbors (& family) are military or ex and I don't see them turning on their own neighbors who's kids play together.

I suppose it wouldn't hurt to know how to make an IED out of readily available materials, but that would be for foreign troops - not our own.

When I read this thread this morning I will admit it really upset me so I printed out some of the posts for my husband to read.

He told me in no uncertain terms that if I continue to be upset about the things that I read on this website he will personally unplug my computer.

After awhile of cussing him out I began to remember alot of the subjects that I read and told him about.

I realize now, how much fear I have allowed myself to believe on some of these threads.

So, I decided to never tell him about anything I read on this website.
Thats the only way I can stop him from unplugging my computer.

I'll never give up ATS !

You have to agree, this is not business as usual, bold added below.

3rd Infantry’s 1st Brigade 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 Army Times / originally posted : Monday Sep 8, 2008

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.

Yes troops were deployed during Katrina but that was on a temporary basis.

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....

They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.

And they have all kinds of cool toys they are getting...

The package includes equipment to stand up a hasty road block; spike strips for slowing, stopping or controlling traffic; shields and batons; and, beanbag bullets.

“I was the first guy in the brigade to get Tasered,” said Cloutier, describing the experience as “your worst muscle cramp ever - times 10 throughout your whole body.

“I’m not a small guy, I weigh 230 pounds … it put me on my knees in seconds.”

And of course they get the cutest, most harmless name you could think of..

The brigade will not change its name, but the force will be known for the next year as a CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force, or CCMRF (pronounced “sea-smurf”).

And before you go dismissing the Army Times report and think this is one small brigade, you should first know,

The active Army’s new dwell-time mission is part of a NorthCom and DOD response package.

Active-duty soldiers will be part of a force that includes elements from other military branches and dedicated National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Teams.

In addition to 1st BCT, other Army units will take part in the two-week training exercise, including elements of the 1st Medical Brigade out of Fort Hood, Texas, and the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade from Fort Bragg, N.C.

There also will be Air Force engineer and medical units, the Marine Corps Chemical, Biological Initial Reaction Force, a Navy weather team and members of the Defense Logistics Agency and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

Our troops - our sons and daughters, husbands and wives - have all been used by this administration to further an agenda in the sandbox which was not about Homeland Security or even security for Iraq. Now they are placing them here at home, where, if they were ordered to put down their own citizens, I see them taking an about face, and putting down the leaders whom they are tired of following.

It would be wonderful to have troops helping in natural disasters, my fear is for the man-made variety disaster or even civil unrest that may naturally occur as the depth of fraud and greed that took our economy to this juncture is revealed.

The role of the troops must remain to protect America from disaster, not to protect rulers from the unruly masses their actions have awakened.

These troops are not coming home for R&R, they will be on active duty assignment in the North American theater of operations. There is a difference. It is hard to have blind faith in this administration's ability to make good judgment decisions when ordering mission and tactics for this operational force. And even harder to fathom the position they will put our troops in if they are not very careful about what functions they order them to carry out.


Edit: there is a difference between being panic stricken - and being vigilant. When a change of this magnitude in military operations happens, and an entire country - the United States - becomes an active theater of operations - someone ought to notice AND ask questions.

The Secret Government is real. It is formed from secret organizations which have been around for centuries, and has been very powerful. Those secret orgs were started by the Pyramid-builders, the Orion aliens, who came from that constellation to take over the Earth. The reason we still have freedom to a degree is because of interplanetary laws protecting the inhabitants of planets from being conquered. Otherwise we would all have been slaves a long time ago. Recap: Big bang, gas, stars, planets, life,civilisations, they communicate, form agreements and the Interplanetary Council was created. I personally have met insiders who have mentioned it to me. The Earth's govs have had dealings with it, but because the Secret Gov controls them it has not been very fruitful. The IC sent a delegation here in the 1930s to open up communications with the interplanetary community but could not overrule the govs who wanted to keep it secret from the public. The Secret Gov in fact decided to put on the Orson Welles alien invasion scare afterwards.There is a legal battle going on between the Orion aliens who want to reinforce their control of the Earth and the IC.

You are exactly right!
I would like to ask all you panic stricken people who post this crap, in exactly what way has our government interfered with your personal life so far? And have you awoke to see any troops in the streets? And is martial law in effect currently in any city in the us? I didn't think so.
I have read conspiracy crap about martial law happening for years, and to this day it is still nonsense.
I swear the very people who post that their soooo worried about this stuff truly want it to happen because they are all drama freaks, and cant live without drama in every corner of their boring lives. No Dr Deagle crap has come to pass, there will be no massive UFO sighting on the 14th, the US will not fall as so many predict, and Martial Law will never happen. Yes our economy sucks right now, but it will rebound like it always does. And before you say it YES I know how bad the current state of the financial crisis is. This country even during all were currently experiencing is still far ahead of so many other countries in ways you dont even understand, and as far as I am concerned, you are all falling for their fear tactics just as you have been in so many other fear driven circumstances. I bet it has all been planned this way just to freak out the OP.

Keep in mind that if people become unruly there will most likely be a domino effect where nearly everyone is revolting. What exactly can our military do against 300 million + people?

It's very simple really: People screamed out, "Take our liberties, just please make us safe!" after 9-11. People demanded the President to take action. In a united voice we screamed for blood. For justice.

Whats even worse, is they knew the public would do that to begin with, hence why it happened.

We're at a huge disadvantage, they had ~200 years to plan this, they control almost every single part of our lifes and most of all.....

The GIANT SCARE tactic of 9/11 was staged to force people to to so AFRAID that they would stand by whilst the patriot act was set in place.....
I honestly BELIEVE that if 'homeland security'...and securing our boarders were REAL issue they would most certainly have built a BIG WALL on the Mexican and Canadian borders..........they didnt though, so its just not true, its just smoke and mirrors....I have always been one who thinks actions speak louder than words.....and this 'securing the boarders' rap is only so much noise.

To the OP.............I have not seen one single military vehicle this month. So I am thinking this is just noise as well.
Scare tactics to keep us on our toes......
While we all look for troupe movements close to home something else is going on I am in a 'watch the puppet on my left hand so you don't see what my right hand is doing' scenario.
