Martial Law in America coming in October

September 24, 2008

Beginning in October, the Army plans to station an active unit inside 
the United States for the first time to serve as an on-call federal 
response in times of emergency. The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st 
Brigade Combat Team has spent thirty-five of the last sixty months in 
Iraq, but now the unit is training for domestic operations. The unit 
will soon be under the day-to-day control of US Army North, the Army 
service component of Northern Command. The Army Times reports this new 
mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated 
assignment to Northern Command. The paper says the Army unit may be 
called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control. The soldiers 
are learning to use so-called nonlethal weapons designed to subdue 
unruly or dangerous individuals and crowds. 


Interview with Georgian president Saakashvili

Of course, both sides accuse each other of ethnic cleansing and other war crimes. Who would you believe? Wouldn’t there have been quieter, more effective ways for Georgia to “cleanse” Ossetians within the country’s borders then a loud, messy armed conflict? Maybe not. The fog of war is, obviously, best for obscuring your true, evil intentions. Russia espionage may have destabilized the region forcing Saakashvili to take drastic action against Separatist violence. This creates the perfect excuse for Russian troops to move in to defend its passport carrying peoples. Ultimately, you can’t trust either sides’ propaganda.



Martial Law in America

August 11, 2008

As public unrest grows in America, Martial Law is becoming an acceptable solution. 

Bush signs unconstitutional “power grab” presidential directives NSPD51 and HSPD20, giving him full-dictatorial powers in the event of a loosely defined “catastrophic emergency.”

The “National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive” NSPD-51, loosely defines “catastrophic emergency” as “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.”

 

Of course, this is all just conspiracy theory and paranoia.
