    Domestic Deployment: U.S. Army Chief Says Military Will Be Used To Provide “Rapid Response Options” and Address “Challenges in the United States Itself”

    As the Department of Homeland Security and local law enforcement fuse into a single militarized policing apparatus for the whole of America through the use of massive surveillance warehouses, eye-in-the-sky drones and hybrid task forces, the U.S. military will continue to expand it’s role in domestic affairs, including in the event of natural disasters and terror related crises. So says Army Chief of Staff Raymond Odierno, who recently penned an article in Foreign Affairs, a propaganda mouthpiece published by the Council of Foreign Relations, an organization well known for having its hand in the economic, financial, social, military and political policies of every developed nation on Earth.

    The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) proposes that the U.S. Army be used to plan, command, and carry out (with the help of civilian law enforcement) domestic police missions…

    …the CFR would see the Army used to address “challenges in the United States itself” in order to keep the homeland safe from domestic disasters, including terrorist attacks.

    Odierno writes:

    Where appropriate we will also dedicate active-duty forces, especially those with niche skills and equipment, to provide civilian officials with a robust set of reliable and rapid response options.

    That’s right. Should the sheriff suspect that a particular citizen in his county poses a threat to security and feels he doesn’t have the proper “skills and equipment” to deal with the situation, he can just call out the U.S. Army and bring a “rapid response” force that is robust enough to eliminate the problem.

    These are not the musings of an unknown academic written in an obscure journal of little importance. These are the black-and-white plans for “building a flexible force” as laid out by the man in charge and published for all the world to read by the people who may have put him there.

    In order to justify this new (and illegal) mission for the Army, General Odierno points to three “major changes” that have precipitated the re-tasking of the troops: First, “declining budgets due to the country’s worsened fiscal situation; second, “a shift in emphasis to the Asia-Pacific region; and third, a “broadening of focus from counterinsurgency, counter-terrorism, and training of partners to shaping the strategic environment, preventing the outbreak of dangerous regional conflicts, and improving the army’s readiness to respond in force to a range of complex contingencies worldwide.”

    Source: New American via Federal Jack

    The head of the U.S. military, in a publication for an organization that is hell bent on centralizing the activities of sovereign nations into a single global entity, has outlined the intentions of our government, military, and international community for future deployment in what’s shaping up to be America’s next theater of operations – the domestic front.

    With the passage of recent legislation that allows for the detention of American citizens without charge or trial, a stifling of freedom to protest at events of “national significance”, the expansion of terror definitions, and a new executive order that authorizes martial law and military deployment at any time the President deems necessary, it should be obvious that it is only a matter of time before tanks and soldiers are deployed on the streets of America.

      • You said it. They have every intention of controlling the population by force if and when necessary.

        We can only hope when these “forces” are deployed, those folks will have families to worry about as well and choose not to engage.

        Or they could move to the more willing resources (below).

          I personally know alot of military personnel. Many are high ranking NCOs. One was recently asked, with his platoon, if they would obey certain orders, at which point this NCO said he would order his men to stand down. His men later told him how proud they were of him. In other words, they would not obey such orders that were blatently unconstitutional. Kudos to Navy Master Chiefs and Army Master Sargeants. We have alot of allies out there. Do not discount someone because they are military. The top brass may think they are running the show, but in reality, what orders are followed are up to the everyday soldier, and alot of them are on our side. Perhaps, most of them.

            The military would function, in my opinion, to an NYPD analogue. The “white shirts” were brutal against #OWS protesters and the “blue shirts” perhaps less so, but they still followed orders of the police (the hand that feeds) administration. Many of the NYPD “blue shrts” and their families are faced with the same economic dilemmas as the protesters but…………..

            The use of US Armed Forces to conduct policing operations on US soil will occur if Barak Obama is relected. He has secured through an executive order to place key military units under the command of the Justice Department where they will be providing the FBI, and ATF&E with combat infantry, armour, and aerial attack assets to be used in case there is any sign of mass public dissent and/or protest in responce to his relection. The DHS and NSA will also have access to the same military assets.
            Does this violate the US Constitution?….Oh hell yes! But Obama will use his very broad interpretation of the Patriot Act as the only legal justification to suspend the Writ of Habeaus Corpus and to violate the Posse’ Commutatus Act.
            However, Obama knows that some high-ranking military officers and senior NCOs will more than likely order the troops directly under their command to stand down forcing Obama to fall upon his contentiency plan in case this happens and that is to call upon the United Nations to send an international military force, made up of Mexican and Latin-American troops, to the US to secure key US military installations and support domestic policing agencies. The next step will be to sign an executive order outlawing the private ownership of firearms from military-style weapons to hunting rifles, shotguns, and even pistols. By this time the government will have created mass detention centers, to hold all the American citizens who dare to stand against his tyrantical rule, throughout the western states; Montana, Wyoming, the Dakotas, etc. where detainees can be kept far away from centers of population and from prying eyes.
            This is the nightmare scenario that is awaiting us. All of the key pieces to make it happen are already in place. All it will take is an excuse to unleash it.

            Before anyone talks about their weapons, let me remind you that “they” carry M-16 semi automatic along with all their other weapons. It is like compareing a slingshot to a rifle.
            “We” had better return to our covenant with the protector of this nation right now or “we” are in big trouble.

            The British thought the same thing, hmmm that did not end well for them. I suggest reading about Kings Mountain for a little idea of what Patriots can do.

          This started long before Obama. It was George Sr. that announced a New World Order. It was Junior after 9/11 while proclaiming Islam the Religion of Peace that from now on we would have a Homeland Security dept. More trash from the Bush family and the CFR. With electronic banking and so much support structure controlled via the internet when the time comes to lower the hammer it will be very easy to make things so bad that we will be forced to comply.

            John W., If you still believe Islam is responsible for 9/11, than you are lost like the rest of the sheeple. How come it’s not okay for government to bring in military, take away your rights, and establish martial law. But it is okay for us to invade Muslim lands for money and oil and nwo and if they resist they are called terrorists. Wasn’t it we who had bases on their land? What if United Nations had bases here, wouldn’t you oppose to it? Oh wait the UN does have bases and it irritates you and everyone here doesn’t it?

            Even though Shasta lake was full they still cut off the water to the Central Valley farmers. Thirty years of investment in fruit and nut orchards gone in a Summer and the criminals who did it will not even pay them for their losses. It is later than most think as the same tactics were used under Bush against the Klamath farmers. Don’t think for a second that they will not shut off the power and water to cities. Imagine Vegas or Phoenix in August with no power or water and all the roads out blocked.

          I don’t think so. I’d say it would be a very short stand against helicopter gunships, maybe an hour or two before all 40k have perished.

          A more effective guerrilla warfare would have 40000 HEAVILY ARMED citizens ready to ambush convoys from the heights of mountain ridges, just like Afghans or Pakistani did. Now, that would have been believable.

            Some of us do have those things in one form or another. Anti-material caliber weapons are actually fairly widely owned. Every .50BMG rifle out there, and there are thousands of them can bring down a helicopter. Mountain ridges as you say are a little scarce in much of the U.S. but there other terrain features that lend themselves to ambush. Our main hope is that most members of the military will not obey orders to enforce tyranny, that will limit casualties substantially.

            We will not be massed infantry like in 1776, this will be a guerrilla war and many of us have been preparing to conduct sustained combat operations against a rogue government for years.

            Unfortunately, this bloodshed is now unavoidable in order to restore the Constitution. Remember this civil war is against the usurpers of freedom, it is against the relatively small percentage of men(and women) who would enslave the population, destroy liberty and impose themselves as a ruling class over the rest of us. They will not stop and I will not comply, therefore civil war is inevitable.

          Everyone!: Don’t you get it-they aren’t going to try and take over every city and town in America. They’re the ones affraid of “US” turning on them! The folks in D. C. are scared shitless of what they think we may do to them if things get much worse. By conservative estimates, there are 80 million gun owners in America. Now if only 10% decide to stand up to them, especially those with military training, they’re screwed. 8 million folks is more than twice the number of ALL military: active, reserve, guard, and all police: federal, state, and local combined. And most of our military is still delpoyed overseas. Besides, many of those in the military and police wouldn’t stand with the government if they gave the order to round folks up. That’s why they’ve been monitoring all communications through the NSA and FBI, and are now they are using drones to see if there is any coordinated military type movements against them. We did the same thing to the Soviets during the Cold War. We would know if they were going to attack because we would be able to detect a large mobilization through increased radio traffic and with our spy satellites. The folks in D.C. are doing the same thing, only with more sophisticated technology. TPTB are hoping for an economic miracle to save them, but it’s not comming. There is no economic fairy-godmother; so they’re SOL. When things really do go down, they just want enough warning so that they can get the hell out of Dodge and hide like the little rats they are. I don’t recommend violence against anyone currently in power. We’ll never see them again as they will be in hiding for years. We just need to be ready to take care of ourselves and rebuild our communities. Good luck everyone.

            Excellent point my friend. Had not thought of it in that context. There is a lot of Congressman and Senators retiring after this term and I have often thought they are getting out while the getting is still good. I keep saying that we are facing a repeat of the USSR. Afganastan was what broke them. The ability of the central government to administer the states declined to the point where the states broke away on thier own is very similar to what is coming here to America. If that happens here what will the geo-polital state of the America’s look like? Will our soldiers desert and go back to thier individual home states to form a military of thier own? What about states like here in California who cannot afford a military? Militias running counties and even the State governments disolving. Hmmm. Interesting.

          I have three children ranging from 6 to 15 and they all know exactly how to use a firearm. My six year old can load ammo in the magazines faster than my 15 year old.

          You have a very good point. I hope and pray that the children survive all this. They will be the ones in control some day.

        The corp can only deploy America soldiers in America if they have sufficiently brainwashed them to believe it to be right. The corp believes it has now done that, or wants you to believe it has.

        The test will be what response the soldiers make when the FIRST unlawful attack order against the People is given. If they fail to stand on their Oath, it will be tragic for those who comply with the orders.

        The next test will be what happens when units are deployed to the soldiers own home towns and they realize their families are subject to the crimes they are committing against other localities. Their family is safe from the crimes of Iraq, but will be victims of what they do here.

        The ultimate test will be the response when the people fire on them. The only acceptable option for any American soldier is to turn and run. Anything else is a declaration of war against the People and turning their back on everything they claim to be serving for.

        I will wake tomorrow with no more fear than I have today. They may kill me one day in the War on Freedom, but they will not fill me with fear which the intention of such outrageous propaganda pieces.

        Personally, I think having the systems in place to scare the hell out of you is a lot more simple than actually having the ability to use it without retaliation from the people they fear so much.

        What the criminals can do, and what they want you to believe they can do, are two totally different things.

I tell them it does not matter what you think or what I think, only what will happen. I am amazed at how people think that our fragile infrastructure is on every aspect of the delivery system of food, water, electricity, etc. I have actually gotten thru to some, who think the way I do, and are moving in the same direction. They are the ones who will team up and be the survivors, who will be the winners in the end.

        Point of clarification. The Chief of Staff of the Army is NOT in total control of the Army. He reports to the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff who reports to the President. The Army Chief of Staff briefs the Chairman his proposed actions. The Chairman either approves or disapproves the action. Before the advent of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and during the Civil War, the general in charge was called General in Chief and it was a three star position. He reported directly to the President.

        • That was an excellent article John. The only part I felt was missing is the small exhaust port just 2 meters wide. Just large enough for a small stunt fighter to bag with a proton torpedo. The part where a Luke Skywalker can use the force and send the Death Star packing.

          I guess I’m still holding on to a little optimism for the lucky shot that hit the rudder of the Bismark. I know for a fact there are many working within the belly of the beast that are not at all pleased with the demons they serve. As impossible as it may seem, could it be that a third option would be for an internal meltdown from internal sources?

          Anyway, thanks for sharing.

            @prepared soccer mom:

            You do not understand what I’m saying. If you did you wouldn’t be saying, “I’m damn proud of what my husband does.” What specifically does your husband do that you are proud of? He isn’t “serving” his country. He IS serving a corrupt murderous US.gov. This is exactly why I say you’re blind. Stop believing in the the “patriotic propaganda” that says that if you put on a .gov costume you’re serving your country. I’m sorry, but he’s being used, despite all of his and your well intentions. If you hate seeing where this country is going stop being a part of it and stop serving this gov. that is putting a noose around all of our necks.

            Being a soldier is a job. SO get an new job! Stop sucking off the gov. tit for all the welfare benefits. Nobody pays for my house. Who pays for yours? Nobody gives me free health care. Who pays for yours? Nobody gives me an extra allotment for food and gas on top of my base salary. Who gives you that? See how you like your socialized nanny state gov.?

            I do blame the soldier. Is this because I DIDN’T serve, as you say? NO it is because I did “serve”! Am I qualified to speak now, is that how someone earns their right to free speech? (I like that those who have served like to try and use their “service” as a qualifier for their right to speak out and if someone didn’t “serve” then they should shut their mouth because they didn’t earn that right to speak) And because I did serve I saw first hand how screwed up the whole military is. The military is nothing but Socialized Big Government bureaucracy at it’s finest. Open your eyes because you’re living right in the middle of it and haven’t seemed to notice yet. Or maybe you enjoy the socialism of the US Nanny State.

            So wake up! Stop serving this corrupt gov. And for anyone that may misconstrue my meaning here let me say this. I say what I say in the spirit of our Founding Fathers. Just as they wanted their corrupt gov. gone that ruled over them so do I want this corrupt gov. gone that rules over us today. The Founding Fathers shot their fellow country men that wore the gov. costumes of their day. Because the goons that wore the costumes were and are the iron fist that the gov. will use to crush the people. There is nothing noble or honorable about serving this corrupt murderous gov.

            Sir, Having served in the military in EVERY conflict from Vite Nam, Iraq and Afghanistan I speak with some knowledge about this. There will be 3 camps in the coming Second American Civil War: Those that will side with the government, with the American people against the government and those which will sit out the fight protecting the innocent who do not want to or can not fight.

            Who will win is anyone’s guess, a battle plan rarely lasts beyond the first shot. The government has the organization and the resources but not the will for an all out bloodbath. The Patriots have the will to fight, the moral high ground and the numbers. The coming war will be like NOTHING the world has ever seen, it will be brutal, when the government forces attack your family you will need to attack theirs. Everyone from newborn to the aged and infirm will be a combatant.
            In order to win the Patriots will need to organize and prepare to be as if not far more brutal then they can possibly imagine. The fight which is coming will scar the collective memory of America for many generations to come. I hope the American people are ready to wage TOTAL WAR because that is what it is going to take.

Everyone that has any intelligence and thinks and sees the truth of what is going on is actually as much as a threat to the gov’ment as as some Islamic towel head terrorist. Imagine that, the 1% of the preppers that want to preserve what the country was founded on are now equal to or more of a threat to those in power than some true enemy. Only the sheeple or common android type person that can be lead around by a nose ring will not be targeted, just made into a slave.

      Those drones are not meant to spy on people as much, they are killers that can delivery a payload to someone’s home or retreat without risking one single guv’ment crony. They are so high up that unless you have a SAM, surface to air missile, or some sort of laser or disruptor you are defenseless against them. They deem you a threat after the collapse, then you have a drone seeking you out soon afterwards. Anyone out there know how to make some Tesla style disruptor?

        It’s much more complex than just having attack drones. You probably need 100 surveillance drones for every attack drone.

        From wikipedia:

        Classification

        Although most UAVs are fixed-wing aircraft, rotorcraft designs (i.e., RUAVs) such as this MQ-8B Fire Scout are also used.

        UAVs typically fall into one of six functional categories (although multi-role airframe platforms are becoming more prevalent):

        Target and decoy – providing ground and aerial gunnery a target that simulates an enemy aircraft or missile
        Reconnaissance – providing battlefield intelligence

        Combat – providing attack capability for high-risk missions (see Unmanned combat air vehicle)

        Logistics – UAVs specifically designed for cargo and logistics operation

        Research and development – used to further develop UAV technologies to be integrated into field deployed UAV aircraft

        Civil and Commercial UAVs – UAVs specifically designed for civil and commercial applications

        Schiebel S-100 fitted with a Lightweight Multirole Missile

        They can also be categorised in terms of range/altitude and the following has been advanced as relevant at such industry events as ParcAberporth Unmanned Systems forum:

        Handheld 2,000 ft (600 m) altitude, about 2 km range

        Close 5,000 ft (1,500 m) altitude, up to 10 km range

        NATO type 10,000 ft (3,000 m) altitude, up to 50 km range

        Tactical 18,000 ft (5,500 m) altitude, about 160 km range

        MALE (medium altitude, long endurance) up to 30,000 ft (9,000 m) and range over 200 km

        HALE (high altitude, long endurance) over 30,000 ft (9,100 m) and indefinite range

        HYPERSONIC high-speed, supersonic (Mach 1–5) or

        hypersonic (Mach 5+) 50,000 ft (15,200 m) or suborbital altitude, range over 200 km

        ORBITAL low earth orbit (Mach 25+)

        CIS Lunar Earth-Moon transfer

        CACGS Computer Assisted Carrier Guidance System for UAVs
        The United States military employs a tier system for categorizing its UAVs.

        Classifications by the United States military

        The modern concept of U.S. military UAVs is to have the various aircraft systems work together in support of personnel on the ground. The integration scheme is described in terms of a “Tier” system, and is used by military planners to designate the various individual aircraft elements in an overall usage plan for integrated operations. The Tiers do not refer to specific models of aircraft, but rather roles for which various models and their manufacturers competed. The U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Marine Corps each has its own tier system, and the two systems are themselves not integrated.

        US Air Force tiers

        An MQ-9 Reaper, a hunter-killer surveillance UAV.

        Tier N/A: Small/Micro UAV. Role filled by BATMAV (Wasp
        Block III).[20]

        Tier I: Low altitude, long endurance. Role filled by the Gnat 750.[21]

        Tier II: Medium altitude, long endurance (MALE). Role currently filled by the MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper.

        Tier II+: High altitude, long endurance conventional UAV (or HALE UAV). Altitude: 60,000 to 65,000 feet (19,800 m), less than 300 knots (560 km/h) airspeed, 3,000-nautical-mile (6,000 km) radius, 24 hour time-on-station capability. Complementary to the Tier III- aircraft. Role currently filled by the RQ-4 Global Hawk.

        Tier III-: High altitude, long endurance low-observable UAV. Same parameters as, and complementary to, the Tier II+ aircraft. The RQ-3 DarkStar was originally intended to fulfill this role before it was “terminated.”[22][23] Role now filled by RQ-170 Sentinel.

      Those here should not be worried as we’re most likely prepared and will be staying in the house with our own provisions and not causing any problems. Those people are left alone(unless someone who wants your provisions comes a knocking).

      The military/police will be for those rioting and looting for food, gas and money. The military will just shut it down and ask questions later to keeopp control. and some that are just in neeed will be cuaght in the crossfire.

          it’s going to stink for about 2 years while the US and Europe painfully go through this “deleveraging era”, but thats what is happening. its not about to go to the dark ages.

            Egypt is having its government dissolved which will have a major impact on Iran Israel and others inthe area depending who gets in. Tunisia is on lockdown due to riots and Syria is ripping itself apart.

            Although the Middle East seems a long way off from over there. It is all pretty close together geographically and all these things tend to have major knock on effects. As an example Italy is sinking under the weight of middle easten refugees as they are the closest landing point.

            It is all pretty shit to be honest.

        It can’t be both ways. If we become a police state, those of us who are prepared will not be left alone. Anyone with firearms will be sought out by those in charge of the police state.

        Do you seriously think the only thing the military/police “will be for those rioting and looting for food, gas and money. The military will just shut it down and ask questions later to keeopp control.” True they will be asking questions later.

        I know several members of the military and law enforcement officers in different levels of authority. I never reveal the extent of my preps but I have tried to engage in conversations about the state of our country and its possible demise. All of these guys love their family, country, and freedom. Some even show skepticism towards the government. To merely suggest that if things go sour in this country that it will be black or white (not literally) is not accurate. All of these guys are angered and disgusted by the “takers” and parasites of society. From what I gather, the us vs. them mentality doesn’t fit the bill here. I think many in authoritative positions aren’t going to be firing on their own people just because their bosses told them so.

      The first line of defense is to do what most preppers do instinctively, keep a low profile. Unfortunately tech surveillance has put us at a disadvantage unless you’ve paid cash for every prep item on hand we’re on some list somewhere, or we’ve talked to the wrong person/friend in hopes of warning/ helping only to find out they’re lazy moochers or far more ignorant than we thought.

      Having served 24 years in the US Army (RET 6 yrs ago) we can only hope that the smart 1 / 3rd does the right thing should things ever get this far. The Military like all countries and organizations fits into the 1 / 3rd rule, 1/3rd are true professional patriots, 1/3rd are welfare cases that have found a niche but are professional posers and 1/3rd made up of people along for the ride and idiots.

      Most of us have had little personal experience with their extreme level of all consuming lust for power, that knows no moral restraints whatsoever, to both readily recognize and thwart it before it’s too late to do so.

      There is easily enough good & moral remnant remaining here to do so, if only they could awaken to the true reality of the threat, and need to do so, before their capability to do so had been too eroded.

That EO turns over to the U.S. military ALL of the nation’s water resources and supplies, with one single exception: the bottled water that was placed under the control of FEMA, along with other prepared food supplies.

      I am having a bbq this weekend for fathers day and will have 45 people over. I had to go to ten different stores and buy the same exact thing ten different times because I did not want to be seen as a hoarder by the DHS and local leos. I could just not take the chance and buy 15 cans of pork and beans and two extra packages of hot dogs and end up in a fema camp. Luckily I had been taking out $15 at the bank for the last ten weeks so I was able to pay cash and not be tracked by using debit/credit cards. I got kind of a funny look when I bought both ketchup and mustard at one store so I will have to make sure and write down what I got at each store and not purchase the same item withing the same month. I think I will ask some of my relatives for pictures of their kids so if someone in the future raises any questions of why I am buying so much I will show them the pics and say I have 11 kids and they eat a lot. You just can’t be to careful, I am sure the Obama admin is keeping records on all of us and if he wins in nov a lot of us will be in BIG trouble and have to expain why we bought more than a few days of groceries and that 24 pack of toilet paper. This will be my last post on the internet their are too many of the govt. spooks watching so from now on I wil be leaving messages behind the cedar tree at the corner across from the liquor store that sells the zero candy bars in the freezer.

      Ewww! All that high tech gadgetry, and fancy words like “Rapid Response!” Scary isn’t it? You would think that with all the prep the US government is doing that they might be afraid maybe? Look at their involvment in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan. They can’t win. They don’t know how. We are talking about stupid, brainwashed, sociopaths. They treat us like domestic terrorists. They don’t even know what domestic terrorism is. Americans, despite themselves, have always found ways to deviate or originate around the common ideologies our society suggests. Simply look at it like you’re Bugs Bunny, and the government is Elmer Fudd. Sure he’s got a gun, but he gets outsmarted every time. He’ll never get Bugs, he doesn’t have the mentality, all he does is tell you what he’s doing.
      What’s up doc?
      I’m hunting wabbit!
      Wabbit! What’s a wabbit?
      Elmer doesn’t know what he’s hunting. Bugs has to point it out to him sometimes.
      Or the Road Runner, were The Coyote invents all these contraptions to snare the Road Runner. How many times do they blow up in his face? Why? ACME? Sometimes. Other times he doesn’t know when to stop and finds himself running of a cliff. He’s hopeless. An obsessive compulsive bent on the destruction of one scrawny bird. Foghorn or Porky maybe, but the Road Runner? please!

      Of course these are cartoons, but what’s the differnce between a puppet show and a cartoon, hmm? Which one is more real? Is it possible for an individual to perhaps redirect the mentality of vicious hateful thought? Yes, its easy. And Fun.

      I get tired of reading about all the tyranny, and opression. Mac, all I see is the spread of fear, paranoia, and distrust. Big Bro is watching, No, you just make them think he is. This illusion of the world as we know it is collapsing. I am honored by god to bear witness. I am not afraid.
      The feds to me are “Fudds.” They wouldn’t know a terroist if he came up and kissed him.

All of the sudden I receive an email this week stating I am now enrolled in the July training and be willing to commit to a seven week course.

      One must wonder about that art imitating life or life imitating art phrase. Too much of this stuff has been seen in movies like Enemy’s of the State.

      If a surveillance program of great size was to be instituted and it’s reasonable to assume some of it’s details (such as location) would leak out would it be smart to in effect hide it in plain site. Why not put a lot of the details in a movie and if anything leaked it would be discredited quite easily with, “Oh you seen that on TV’ or “You seen that in the movies”. To the masses the credibility has been lost and the thought process ended.

      Think about all the glory war shows that came out just prior to Vietnam in the 1960s like Combat, 12 OClock high and others. That, “Art imitating life and life imitating art” may be no accident.

      A MARINE’S MARINE

      Every now and then, in the middle of the constant barrage of crap that’s just pissing us all off these days, you come across a story, a feat, an event that just makes us stop in our tracks.

      Cody Green was a 12-year-old kid in Indiana who was diagnosed with leukemia at 22 months. He loved the Marines, and his parents said he drew strength and courage from the Marine Corps, as he bravely fought the battle into remission three times. Although he was cancer-free at the time, the chemotherapy had lowered his immune system and he developed a fungus infection that attacked his brain. Two weeks ago, as he struggled to fend off that infection in the hospital.

      The Marines wanted to show how much they respected his will to live, his strength, honor, and courage. They presented Cody with Marine navigator wings and named him an honorary member of the United States Marine Corps. For one Marine, that wasn’t enough … so that night, before Cody Green passed away, he took it upon himself to stand guard at Cody’s hospital door all night long, 8 hours straight.

      Nowhere on the face of this planet is there a country so blessed as we to have men and women such as this. I wish I could personally tell this Marine how proud he makes me to be an American.

      God, I do so love this country.

        Actually the oath is to the Constitution, not the country directly. A fine point but relevant due to the nature of what is happening.

        “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; ”

        The enemies of the Constitution are in power and the military should be taking up arms against them to fulfill their oath, not the citizens who intend to depose those enemies. The system our enemies have put in place to limit freedom in violation of the Constitution does not legitimize their criminal acts.

      It is not really relevant that General Odierno is not by himself in charge of the US military. The very fact that a senior US military officer would propose the use of US military forces for domestic operations beyond rescue and assistance during a natural disaster is disturbing. There is nothing wrong with calling on the military in case of a wild fire, flood or earth quake, but to call on the military in case of domestic civil unrest is concerning. 9/11 and this entire Islamic terrorism issue has opened the doors for this type of thinking. One could almost say, had there not been a 9/11 or other Islamic terror attacks, they sure would have been desirable to create this mindset. While terrorism by Islamic radicals is very real, I think we are over-militarizing our response. We never had this many domestic govt. agencies which are armed, or such curtailment of freedoms in the name of national security. I think the pendulum has gone too far right. I don’t understand what these hawks are fearing? Are they so prepared to instigate a public revolt? Should it come to some sort of economic or security meltdown, do they really think that they can use the US military against US citizens? The consequences would be dire, like in our Civil War. There are many, many Americans who would simply refuse to accept Marshall Law and there would be unnecessary bloodshed on both sides. I question how many US soldiers would follow orders to arrest, detain and disarm US citizens? It would not surprise me if such an order would not ignite massive desertions. To most soldiers this is a very sensitive issue and the National Guard for one would hardly participate in any action against fellow citizens. This however does not mean that the military would not engage in domestic surveillance and other domestic intel operations.
