Western military forces turning inward in anticipation of domestic unrest

As the growing world-wide economic crisis deepens, military forces from Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom are preparing to meet angry citizens on the street. The economic crisis – and the public outrage it is causing – is at the forefront of intelligence agencies and military forces in the western world.

Prominent trends forecaster Gerald Celente has been sounding the alarm for years, warning that riots and tax revolts are coming to America. The Pentagon, U. K. Ministry of Defense, and Canadian military apparently agree. In November of 2008 the United States Army War College released the report Known Unknowns: Unconventional “Strategic Shocks” in Defense Strategy Development. The report identifies economic collapse as a reason for the defense establishment to conduct domestic operations. The report states,

“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security. Deliberate employment of weapons of mass destruction or other catastrophic capabilities, unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency…”

The CIA and MI5 are both watching the economic situation for signs of unrest and political instability. As the Washington Post reports, the CIA has added an economic situation report to its threat assessment for the White House. A further sign that the United States government is anticipating widespread unrest comes with the domestic stationing of the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry Division. The Army Times reports,

“They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.”

Canadian military forces have been given a nearly identical domestic mission in a synchronized move with the United States. Canada’s National Post reports that,

“The Canadian military has embarked on a wide-ranging plan to turn its reserve soldiers into focused units trained and equipped to respond to a nightmarish array of domestic threats, including terrorist “dirty bomb” attacks, biological agent containment, Arctic catastrophes and natural disasters.”

David Bercuson, director of the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies at the University of Calgary admits that contingencies exist that “…envisioned scenarios that might require a form of constabulary or policing function for reserves in civilian containment and security.”

Overseas, the United Kingdom’s MI5 is also anticipating widespread unrest in response to economic downturn. The Daily Express reports that the U.K. Army is “on standby” in the event of unrest during a “summer of discontent.”

The United Kingdom’s own Ministry of Defense foresaw middle class revolution two years ago in the 2007 The DCDC Global Strategic Trends report. “The middle classes could become a revolutionary class…,” the report states. “The growing gap between themselves and a small number of highly visible super-rich individuals might fuel disillusion with meritocracy, while the growing urban under-classes are likely to pose an increasing threat to social order and stability, as the burden of acquired debt and the failure of pension provision begins to bite.”

Ominously, legislation was recently introduced to Congress that would authorize “national emergency centers” on military installations that will provide “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster.” The National Emergency Centers Act can be read here.

As new taxes – like paying by mileage and carbon taxes meant to send “price signals” to consumers – are imposed and more money is demanded from debt laden citizens to save failing banks there is little doubt that resistance will grow. Just how far the bankers can go remains to be seen, but the military is ready when we’ve had enough.

    OKLAHOMA STATE SOVEREIGNTY ACT – 1995 (full text below)


    As you have now read, the 10th Amendment / State Sovereignty Resolution reasserts the state’s sovereign position and demands that the federal government comply with the terms of the Constitution. What if the Federal Government chooses to ignore the demands of the Sovereign States?

    As an example of what comes next, consider this: Field Marshall Rommel lost the African Campaign not because he was out-gunned or out-manned ; he ran out of gas! His mighty Panzer Division came to a halt for lack of fuel. The fuel line that runs to Washington is the steady stream of our tax dollars.

    Now consider this: If you rent a house or apartment and your landlord doesn’t comply with his end of the lease by fixing the plumbing or the furnace you can lawfully pay your rent to an escrow account and, therefore, force him to hold up his end of the contract.

    Since the federal government has not complied with the terms of its contract (the Constitution) with us, then perhaps we can, with the assistance and under the direction of our states’ legislatures, have any number of our taxes paid into a state administered escrow account. These types of taxes could be any combination of Federal Excise taxes, Income taxes, Social Security Taxes, etc., etc.

    Simply stated, “Until you comply with your contract with the American People, the escrowed tax dollars will be held by the various states.” Federal courts will not have jurisdiction in these matters as they are agents of the defaulting party – the Federal Government.

    The following bill passed the Oklahoma House “Revenue and Taxation Committee” unanimously on Tuesday, February 7th, 1995. Since then, it unanimously passed the House and was expected to pass the Senate with little problems. However, the act was not called for vote in the Senate before the session ended (3/30/95) so it is dead and will have to be reintroduced. The bill’s sponsor is Representative Charles Key, House of Representatives, State of Oklahoma, Room 508, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73105.
