Democracy Now reports the following:
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 DivisionвЂ™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.
Note from Eric: If you see anything on the possibility of canceled elections, would you please post it to the comment section or send it to me at editorial – at – planetwaves.net? Are there any dyed-in-the-wool conspiracy nuts out there who know of the study that Nixon had done by Rand Corporation about canceled elections? I am sure this is true…and I do think that ChencyBushCo is trying to live out all the unfulfilled fantasies of Tricky Dick — and doing a good job of it, too. –efc
