U.S. Army Plans to Battle Anti-Government Dissidents in “Megacities”

The U.S. Army is preparing to fight political dissidents who challenge the power of the state as “megacities” become the battleground of the future, according to a new report in the Army Times.

The article details how the Army’s Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC) worked with US Army Special Operations Command, the chief of staff’s Strategic Studies Group and the UK’s Ministry of Defence earlier this year to wargame the future of armed combat, which will revolve around the neutralization of groups “who can influence the lives of the population while undermining the authority of the state,” a chillingly vague description which could easily be applied to political dissidents.

The plan foresees an unprecedented realignment of U.S. military strategy focused around putting “boots on the ground” in megacities to deal with “politically dispossessed” populations while relying on “more lethal and more autonomous” methods.

That is some really scary stuff, especially in view of the fact that the U.S military is PROHIBITED BY LAW (read that again, for effect) from operating against civilians within the United States. Yet they still plan.
WHO doesn't think they aren't preparing for something? They KNOW this economic façade will inevitably collapse. When it does (not "if"), no army, or armies, in the world will be able to control the chaos.
But, like history shows, that won't stop them from killing everyone they possibly can. Including YOU.
Keep cheering.

Keep your stupid heads buried in the sand ! That way when you are bowing down to your supreme leader you won't mind it at all.

Logic tells me that not all of he soldiers will go along with this. There will be a large portion of the soldiers who will join 'the other side.'
