Report: Military may have to quell domestic violence from economic
collapse

RAW STORY
Published: Monday December 29, 2008

Deepening economic strife in the US could lead to civil unrest and
violence that would require military intervention, warns a new report
from the US Army War College.

"Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the
defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend
basic domestic order and human security," writes Nathan Freier, a
20-year Army veteran and visiting professor at the college.

A copy of the 44-page report, "Known Unknowns: Unconventional
'Strategic Shocks' in Defense Strategy Development," can be downloaded
here. . Freier notes that his report expresses only his own views and
does not represent US policy, but it's certain that his
recommendations have come before at least some Defense Department
officials.

The author warns potential causes for such civil unrest could include
another terrorist attack, "unforeseen economic collapse, loss of
functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance
or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic
natural and human disasters." The situation could deteriorate to the
point where military intervention was required, he argues.

"Under these conditions and at their most violent extreme," he
concludes, "civilian authorities, on advice of the defense
establishment, would need to rapidly determine the parameters defining
the legitimate use of military force inside the United States."

While the scenario presented is "likely not an immediate prospect,"
Freier concedes, it deserves consideration. Prior to 9/11, no one in
the defense establishment would have envisioned a plot to topple
skyscrapers with airliners, and the military should not be caught so
off-guard again, he says.

To the extent events like this involve organized violence against
local, state, and national authorities and exceed the capacity of the
former two to restore public order and protect vulnerable populations,
DoD would be required to fill the gap," he writes. "This is largely
uncharted strategic territory."

Freier's report has merited some concern as it comes alongside
revelations that the Defense Department has assigned a full-time Army
unit to be on-call for domestic deployment.

An article in Monday's El Paso Times notes that military and police
officials in Texas are unaware of team-up efforts such as those
suggested in the report.

Arizona authorities told the Phoenix Business Journal they are
similarly unaware of any new plans, although the Phoenix Police
Department made clear its officers "always train to prepare for any
civil unrest issue."

The Posse Comitatus Act restricts the military's role in domestic law
enforcement, but it does not completely preclude involvement in cases
of emergency or when emergency law is declared. As of now, though,
such scenarios seem unlikely.

The bulk of Freier's report recommends refocusing Defense Department
strategy toward thinking outside the box, in general, and the unlikely
possibility of domestic deployments is just one longshot example he
uses to illustrate a worst case scenario.

While one of my personal nightmare scenarios is the development of a
permanent police state at least in the high-population areas of the
US, this sounds more like sound contingency planning. I was up close
and personal to the WTC attacks, and during all that I was more than
a little pissed off that NORAD was shown to be utterly ineffective
after billions upon billions of dollars had been poured into it.

The problem was lack of vision. Our military is a highly functional
meritocracy that learns from its mistakes. All credit to them.

Now it's possible that the "we're just planning, really" is cover for
a sinister plot to create a blatantly totalitarian social structure
over the next 10-20 years. I dunno. But I don't really think so.

Lincoln never thought that this would be "Government of the zionazis,
by the zionazis, for the zionazis=85" against the American people.
