In another shocking blow to American liberty and the United States Constitution, the Washington Post reported today that the U.S. military has established new plans to deploy an additional 20,000 troops on American soil by September 2011. In this militarization of America, these troops would be on 48 hours notice for "domestic security", ranging from domestic terrorism responsibilities to quelling unrest in the case of a terrorist attack or major economic failure.
As Northcom has already deployed a unit of the 3rd Infantry Division for this purpose, it raises questions as to the motives of having such a heavy domestic force for use against its own people. The first deployment which began on October 1st states is purpose simple and clear. At Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado, it is the force's goal to deal with issues of “civil unrest and crowd control”.
According to the Insurrection Act of 1807, it is illegal to deploy U.S. military upon its own people, for it is the states' National Guards which legally is responsible for disaster relief missions.
The usurpation of the U.S. Constitution is heatedly underway, and for now, it appears little will be done under the new administration to quell its forward steaming train.
