If true it looks like the shoe has dropped. The camps are real.
"The Camps" are and aren't real. There are locations in the U.S. that have been identified as strategically viable to place internment facilities.
Some of these are old military bases - others are currently privately owned farm land or otherwise unassuming locations.
It should not come as any kind of surprise that the military has put thought into what they would do if they suddenly needed to relocate large numbers
of people in the event of an invasion or other contingency operation.
And that they are for detention of people.
Actually - I have a Secret security clearance (a fact that is classified in and of itself, interestingly enough... someone arrest me). I'll let you
in on a little secret.... they're not for people.
They're for aliens.
(Note: A Secret clearance is standard in the military service... I'm nothing special - and the above was stated just for comical relief. Please do
not take it too seriously).
I've had the nagging suspicion that they will be more like the japanese camps used in the 40's in case we go to war with iran or another
Like Libya... Iraq... Afghanistan....?
But who knows the real use.
Well, obviously, an internment camp is for the internment of people.
Exactly why can vary.
I was part of a command a couple years ago with the mission to mobilize to South Korea in the event a war broke out and set up camps. Some of the
camps would be used to hold POWs, others would be used to hold our own miscreants; and the majority would be set up to hold and protect ROK citizens
as they awaited evacuation from the AO.
Razor and C-wire isn't polarized - it resists pedestrian traffic equally in both directions.
It's not always as menacing as you would like to think. Trust me... I don't want to come to your house in an attempt to force you into a camp -
regardless of that camp's purpose. Chances are that I'm not going to do much more than let you know that a whole lot of bad things are coming your
way... and we're helping people get the hell out of Dodge... if you come along - yay. If not... whatever - I would probably be glad for the extra
gun barrel levied at the threat (which I should hope to all things Holy you will do if you insist on hanging around).
Of course - if the reason for bringing you in is because you're killing my friends and family.... well, to be honest, I'm not too inclined to put
forth the effort in bringing you there in a living status. Fewer people I have to deal with throwing poo at me.
But I really don't expect you'll be causing problems.
