    U.S. Military Preparing for Domestic Disturbances

    A new report from the U.S. Army War College discusses the use of American troops to quell civil unrest brought about by a worsening economic crisis.

    The report from the War College’s Strategic Studies Institute warns that the U.S. military must prepare for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States” that could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse” or “loss of functioning political and legal order.”

    Entitled “Known Unknowns: Unconventional ‘Strategic Shocks’ in Defense Strategy Development,” the report was produced by Nathan Freier, a recently retired Army lieutenant colonel who is a professor at the college — the Army’s main training institute for prospective senior officers.

    He writes: “To the extent events like this involve organized violence against local, state, and national authorities and exceed the capacity of the former two to restore public order and protect vulnerable populations, DoD [Department of Defense] would be required to fill the gap.” ..............

    All it really takes is one charge to set off the powder keg.

    Look at what has/is happening in Athens if one needs a great example.

    Excessive military spending is one of the reasons we have an economic crisis.

    That's an easy one to answer...they aren't fixed because our elected representatives (and I use the term 'representative' as a convenience ONLY) are about as useless as a screen door on a submarine.
