This declassified document details a military training manual which discusses the use of military forces in domestic disturbances. The PDF can be downloaded here:

www.fas.org...


Under extreme circumstances, U.S. military force may be turned against American civilians. An unusually explicit 1945 U.S. military field manual (pdf) described tactics for suppressing riots or protests when State and local officials are unable to control the situation.

“Domestic disturbances are manifestations of civil unrest or tension which take the form of demonstrations or rioting. These public demonstrations or riots may reach such proportions that civil authorities cannot maintain law and order by usual methods. Such disturbances may be caused by agitators, racial strife, controversies between employees and employers concerning wages or working conditions, unemployment, lack of housing or food, or other economic or social conditions.”

“A city held by any organized rioters will be attacked generally in the same manner as one held by enemy troops.”


Visit the complete article here:
www.fas.org...

So if the local authority refuses to provide protection, or cannot otherwise provide that protection, federal troops can be used. So what happens when broke state governments cannot afford to pay local authorities? There have already been huge cuts in police forces across this country.

And worse, this was from 1945 and supposedly has been revised. Yeah, revised? In favor of who? I guess now that police forces have battle tanks, that pretty much answers the question.

Wow, I was unaware that American police had tanks. I can also hardly see a use for them in everyday situations either. However, if there are any, feel free to inform me of what and where they can be used. Spending on tanks for regular police is a good way to send the country broke and into the state it is in now.

To me it's just the "no mercy" attitude. Yeah, bring military weapons to bear against a bunch of people upset over some social circumstance. How are we any better than Saudi Arabia? Or Iran? Or....take your pick.

The "revised" rules are probably worse. It's these kinds of things I read that reinforce the rule of "no mercy" to be shown to police or military either if that situation ever arises. Even if he is my brother. Cause he is clearly trained to show no mercy to me. Even if I am his brother.

They better send in the Oathkeepers first.

Oh, this is soooo to be expected. And there are those who claim that the military "would NEVER fire on their own countrymen!"

Sure. I will believe that when I see them walking away from the commander ordering them to shoot. I suspect it won't happen much when the SHTF.

Thats crazy! but it is from 1945 I would hope they have reviewed and changed it , I'm hoping anyway.
I cant believe they classify "protest" and "riots" as even close to the same thing. IMO there is a big difference between burning cars,buildings , and beating people down opposed to a large organized "peaceful" protest.
"Sigh"
thanks for posting

This manual is precisely why the Founders were against having a standing army.

The historical precedent of military use against citizens (WWI vets at that!) has been established.

The Bonus Army

Anyone who believes that military forces won't be used against the populace is seriously deluded.

I don't need to read ANY of the article to know that
no where does it mention that:

If things are bad enough in this country that enough people are causing sooooo much of
a disturbance to warrant sending in the MILITARY, maybe we should try to figure out and fix whatever is pissing everyone off!!!!

Nahhh, much easier to just bomb the $**T out of our own cities then make the survivors foot the bill for cleaning up the mess

Anyone??
Anyone????
Helllloooooooo?

America is and has been for some time now.....D.E.A.D.!!!!

If you still believe that B.S. they taught you in grade school about the "Land of the free" or the "Home of the Brave"
You are delusional and I question your ability to tie your own shoes.

That's a great article. And they would do that to starving WWI vets, who just wanted their promised pittance after risking their very lives for the country. So what would they do to you?

There has been many more recent documents posted on ATS over the years, like NSPD-51, the Patriot Act, and other stuff that just shows these latest "revisions" are only meant to increase their power and control over the populace, by brute force.
