The U.S. Army is again ready to suppression of food riots in the country

Instruction of the military police of the U.S. Army to "Operations in civil disturbances", recently became known, describes how to use military resources in the country to quell the unrest, confiscation of firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

From this document (PDF), released in 2006 and designed for self-study in the military police school of the U.S. Army at Fort Makklellane, it is clear that the operations described in this manual cover «CONUS and OCONUS», that is, the continental United States and territories beyond.

This document describes how you can use military means to "help local and national authorities to restore and maintain law and order" in the case of riots, civil unrest, or the declaration of martial law. Military means will be used mainly for the "acceleration of unauthorized meetings and patrol zone violations to prevent unlawful acts" — written in the document, and indicated that during the operation to restore order military forces may resort to a show of force, the establishment of checkpoints, the fragmentation of the crowds to apply toxic chemicals to the police action, patrolling, use of force or safety reserves, as well as the need to perform other operations. "

Guide also describes the procedure of placing prisoners in temporary internment camp on the instructions of the U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 'Operation internment / movements ", which we wrote about earlier, as well as" re-education "for the development of the internees' positive assessment of U.S. policy" at keeping camps in the United States.

On page 20, management clearly set out the rules on the use of lethal force in clashes with dissidents, with the instruction "shoot on sight".

The guide contains lists of weapons to use against the "rebels" or "demonstrators", including "police grenades." It instructs the military to bear arms "in a safe position" — a psychological tactic, "a show of force the rebels." It also provides non-lethal weapons and water cannons. The document explains how the military can engage in spying and collecting information about dissidents to "identify individuals, groups and organizations, particularly threatening or creating disturbances."

Toxic substances will also be used for purposes of the "crackdown", said the guide. It also involves the confiscation of firearms troops.

"Restrictions on the sale, transfer and storage of critical materials such as gasoline, firearms, ammunition, explosives, police forces can help minimize some form of violence" — the document says on page 40.

"Perhaps the consideration of the withdrawal of critical resources, such as arms of the stores," — said also on page 27 manual.

The paper stressed that the troops should make every effort "to not look as alien invading troops, and as restrained and disciplined force whose sole purpose is to aid in the restoration of law and order with minimum damage to life and property."

This 115-page document gives a shocking new understanding of how the U.S. military will be used for the brutal suppression of the riots after the complete collapse of the economy or other national disaster.

Preparing to use troops to quell mass civil unrest in the United States was conducted over the years.

In 2008, the troops returning from Iraq were intended for "homeland patrols" and one of their functions was to be a help to "control civil unrest and riots."

In December 2008, the "Washington Post" reported on plans to station 20,000 more U.S. troops serving in America for the purpose of "internal security" after September 2011, and the expansion of the militarization of the country by means of the Northern Command (NORTHCOM) to prepare for potential civil unrest following the total economic collapse or a mass terrorist attack.

Released in the same year, a report of the Institute of Strategic Studies, U.S. Army War College warned that as a result of a series of crises in the United States may be massive civil unrest, called "strategic shock."

"Widespread civil violence inside the United States will force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extreme situations, to protect the basic domestic order and human security," — said in a report signed by Lt. Col. Nathan Frey. He adds that the military may be required to suppress the "purposeful domestic resistance".

Program Readiness Exercise 1984 or Rex 84 (exercises for mass incarceration, approx., was established under the pretext of "mass flow" of illegal immigrants crossing the border of Mexico / USA.

However, during the hearings on the Iran-Contra affair in 1987, it was revealed that the program was a secret "script and a collection of instructions" developed by the federal government to suspend the constitution, the declaration of martial law, the transfer of military authority of state governments and state and the right to detain many American citizens determined by the government as a "threat to national security."

As many Americans now becoming "revolutionary-minded" because of their angry reaction to the actions of the Obama administration and equally unpopular lawmakers in Washington, potential civil unrest could take place only among the poor, but in a shrinking middle class.

Perhaps that is why the Department of Homeland Security aims its anti-terror apparatus on white middle-class America, portraying them as domestic terrorists in a series of public service announcements. In addition, the protesters of the movement "Occupy Wall Street" are also characterized as terrorists.
