While I find the above post interesting I would like to point out several things.
1. This thread was a halloween trick in honor of a massive experiment in mass hysteria carried out under the pretense that it was just a joke. (War of
2. Links and verifiable facts are an important part of convincing people that America has been invaded by the UN.
3. If in fact America were invaded/occupied against our will, there would be no keeping it secret. They would have to close highways for military
movements, there would most likely have been noticeable attacks on infrastructure: especially fuel distribution infrastructure, highways, airports,
and of course military bases.
4. If America were for some reason -allowing- UN troops into the country, I'm afraid things would look a lot like the post 9/1 situation, except for
certain key differences. The similarities include the military presence/control of airports, major transportation hubs, and financial infrastructure
centers such as NYC. The rise in oil prices and talk of opening the reserve (to fuel troop movements) would fit in. The deployment of US forces to
close contact with the occupiers (where nationalist elements in the military could be kept in check), such as the record number of carrier deployments
several months ago to training excercises would be important. There would also need to be a revamping and testing of police and intelligence systems
to serve the new arrangement (homeland security fits the bill).
So it's not inconcievable if you want to be paranoid. The difference is that America 1. Doesn't need foreign occupation for any use of its own. 2.
Isn't showing any signs of deference to UN Security Council members. 3. Isn't downsizing it's own military or cutting back on spending for the
future- an occupier would want to cut back recruitment/retainment of the military to pave the way for reduced hardware acquisitions and ultimately
balancing the US budget to make us profitable by eliminating much of our military spending.
There is only one thing that REALLY keeps me paranoid about the US Military these days. They don't close bases the way they used to. Most people in
Palm Springs, CA have no idea that Patton trained an army in this area. This is where they trained for Northern Africa- but all that's left is a
place called "Slab City" where all that's left is cement slabs and a few roads. The fences and corrugated steel buildings are gone even.
Now we leave everything in place. The airforce base here in San Bernardino was put to use: it's an airport and houses CDF airtankers now. The base
housing is still abandoned though. I know there is a demand for cheap housing in a slum like this, but for some reason they left them there to house
transients and make this area even worse to live in. It makes me wonder what the hell the USAF has in mind for that place. Do they want to open it
back up some day or what? Just why the hell do you need an hundreds of houses in a fenced in area right next to the airport for that keeps you from
