The recent September 24 FBI/ATF raids on the residences of anti-war activists in Minneapolis and Chicago and contingent actions in Michigan and North Carolina just ahead of the October 1, 2010, Consequence Management Response Force (CCMRF) assignment to the US Army Northern Command leads to some interesting speculations as to the nature of such brazen and obviously political provocations in the run up to the critical November 4 Congressional mid-term elections. This is especially so as the Seamurf assignment has been extended from one year to two full years. The implications of such overt government attempts to harass, intimidate, and demonize these high profile anti-war activists against the backdrop of the assignment and allocation of brigade strength Army units in service to the 20th support command of the so called CBRNE (Chemical,Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, High Explosives) are ominous and disturbing portents of momentous changes in the scope and magnitude of domestic governmental "security" operations.
An American Police State was inevitable once Americans let “their” government get away with 9/11. Americans are too gullible, too uneducated, and too jingoistic to remain a free people. As another Nazi leader Herman Goering said, “ The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. Tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peace-makers for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger.”
This is precisely what the Bush and Obama regimes have done. America, as people of my generation knew it, no longer exists.
thanks to George at "Of Goats and Men" as usual for the heads up on this.
