    Default Military Drills: Is the Army Preparing for a Martial Law Scenario in the United State

    Military Drills: Is the Army Preparing for a Martial Law Scenario in the United States? (Latest Photos)

    Editor’s Note: The military is actively preparing to deploy in the United States of America if called on to do so. We can be fairly certain that the military drills described below are for domestic implementation and not for controlling civil disobedience and riots in far-off lands like Iraq or Afghanistan. The plans and training have been in place for years. As defined by the National Defense Authorization Act, the United States homeland is now a battlefield, which means the military will have jurisdiction in any situation that is deemed an event of national significance. Once activated, the entire country will fall under the control of the Commander In Chief and operate under emergency legislation that includes but is not limited to detainment and imprisonment of suspects without due process for indefinite periods of time, elimination of the right to assemble and protest freely, seizure of resources that include food, farm equipment, and skilled individuals for the purpose of conscription labor. The laws have been passed, the military has been trained, the ammo has been ordered. Make no mistake, the US government is ready to act swiftly and with impunity.

    Reprinted with permission from The Intel Hub.

    For years the alternative media has warned about the US military possibly being used against the American people in a time of economic collapse or any sort of martial law scenario.

    Drills such as Vigilant Guard 2010 have brought widespread attention to the fact that portions of our own military are training to take on crowds of American citizens demanding food and Constitutional rights in a time of crisis.

    Now, a new release by the website Public Intelligence, once again confirms that as recently as February and March of 2012, US troops at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington were conducting training scenarios for a civil disturbance domestic quick reaction force.

    A series of photos of the drills shows US troops with crowd control riot shields on the opposite side of actors portraying what can only be described as American citizens.

    “The following photos are from March and February of this year and were taken at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. The first four photos from March depict riot control training for a “domestic quick reaction force” that would aid in civil disturbances.

    The second set of photos from February depict the 67th Military Police Company that typically mans the area’s Regional Correctional Facility attempting to quell riots among “restless prison inmates” that have created a disturbance, wrote Public Intelligence in a blog post that accompanied the photos.



    Soldiers assigned to 3rd Squadron, 38th Cavalry Regiment, 201st Battlefield Surveillance Brigade, prepare to control a riot during training, March 13, at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. The unit is conducting civil disturbance training in preparation as a domestic quick reaction force.

The unit is conducting civil disturbance training in preparation as a domestic quick reaction force.

    In the second series of photos, the 67th Military Brigade is seen taking part in what was described as a prison inmate riot. (FEMA Camps inmates?)



    Soldiers with the 67th Military Police Company grab hold of a soldier playing the role of a restless prison inmate who has been injured on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., Feb. 16 while practicing riot control drills during a culmination exercise that concluded a week of training for the soldiers.



    In a post on the U.S. Army’s 5th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment’s Facebook page the drill was somewhat explained:

    JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, WASH. – The Soldiers in a closed formation bang their batons in cadence against their shields as an angry mob approaches.

    “When I initially picked up my shield, the thought of the movie 300 was the first thing that came to mind,” said Spc. Kyle Wilhelmi.

    Teams of Soldiers assigned to 3rd Squadron, 38th Cavalry Regiment, 201st Battlefield Surveillance Brigade conducted civil disturbance training here March 13. The Soldiers, though not quite Spartans, are effectively training to hold their line and successfully control crowds if called upon for a civil disturbance

    Soldiers with shields, batons and rifles pushed through and maintained a dominant stance against a mob of about 40 civilians. The riot escalated as the crowd began throwing snowballs, slurred profanity and made offensive gestures at the Soldiers. The more forceful members of the mob charged the Soldiers but were easily pushed back, as many often fell to the icy surface.

    Consider this:

    The Department of Homeland Security, the USDA, and the FBI have ALL purchased or are set to purchase over 750 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point ammo while at the same time portions of the US Army are directly training for crowd control within the United States.

    Black Blade: I suspect that this is quite possible since the last few administrations in Washington DC have shown little respect for the rule of law. Why should that change now? Posse Comitatus anyone?

    Every american should be vigiliant about their freedoms...but to suggest that there is some conspiracy to use the military to oppress the american people is a bit crazy. To believe that you have to forget that the military is entirely composed of volunteer patriots. This isn't Syria...

    Happened before, in 1932.
    Bonus Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Army intervention was led by WWII hero Douglas MacArthur, assisted by Dwight Eisenhower, and with 6 tanks commanded by George Patton vs. veterans/women/kids. (strange, but all true).

    ...And again in the Longshore riots of San Francisco in 1934:
    1934 West Coast waterfront strike - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This time the Calif. National Guard, with armored cars and tripod mounted machine guns.(not used thankfully)
    Link to page with pics of tanks on the streets of San Francisco! Just a Car Guy: 1934, the all the west coast longshoremen, teamsters, and seamen unions went on strike and the national guard was called in

    No, it is not Syria.

    But each and every service member is sworn to protect the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. And just who decides who the enemies are? The Government.

    Think hard on that. It will take a minimum of 6 months for the "Volunteer Patriots" to decide to do something. Keep thinking.

    There are a lot of people out there who swore that oath and took it seriously. And with the political antics of the last few years, some of them are deeply troubled by the "domestic" part.

    Which is probably why Homeland Security puts the names of veterans in their "terrorist risk" list.

    Cool

    Back in 85-89' I worked as a project manager/engineer on Union Station Wash. D.C.. During this Time I saw and Photo documented many Gov. "things". That I surly thought would make the nightly news.( nope )One such incedent was when I escorted a Photo jurnalist to the roof of the west wing of Union Station to Watch 250,000 prolifers march towards 200,000 prochoicers . This is when I realized the GOV. will Use force against cilivians. The Gov Had wheeled Tanks 20ish (that I saw ) fitted with twin 50"s and mortars . I saw a few 50s' fire in front of a crowd and the rubber bullets ricorshed and threw the crowd back .The mortar shot gas and kept the different sides apart . As we were watching this a helocopter flew up to us and told us to leave and attempted to block the cameras.
    All through the 90's the construction company I worked for assisted in building "Readiness Centers" .Most of these centers were built in rural areas and designed to enable 10,000"S of troops to assemble/equip /deploy very quickly if needed . These are not bases . The permanent staff at these "centers" is kept very minimal 10~ ish . The US GOV. is prepared for whatever happens and has been for a long time... makes one wonder @ the response during Hurricane Katrina
