Chilling.

That this is even being contemplated is beyond reason:

Bringing the War Back Home. “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland”: Getting the military to start preparing for the violent repression of its own citizenry. US Army “deep thinker” creates an “enemy” out of the Tea Parties & “extremist militias.” “Red Teaming” from an Ignorance-Inspired Faulty Premise.

This is not nutball tinfoil-hat speculation.  This is an article written by a retired colonel on staff at Ft. Leavenworth and a University of Kansas professor with her Ph.D. from Princeton.  The original article appears in the peer-reviewed and influential Small Wars Journal.

Read it.  All of it.

There are approximately 1.5 million active members of the military and about the same number of reserves.  It is estimated that less than 10% of those numbers are actual combat troops, with the remaining attributed to all support functions (cooks, administrative personnel, etc.).   Most of the combat-capable soldiers are currently deployed overseas around the world.  The authors have likely overestimated the numbers of soldiers who would willingly violate their oaths to protect and defend the Constitution in order to fire on their fellow citizens.

How many would have to be brought home to do the dirty work (while denuding our forces overseas in areas like Afghanistan)? How many would take up arms against their neighbors?

The number of privately-owned firearms in the U.S. is estimated at more than 270,000,000. Where do the authors think this is going to go and how do they think this would turn out?

One Response to “Chilling.”

  1. I have long observed the leftward inclination, shall we say, of the brass in the military. Back in 94, when I first made mention of it to my father-in-law, I was “mistaken”.

    When he made mention of it last month, I was vindicated. I wish I had still been mistaken.
