Police State 2009: Pentagon to Militarize USA with 20,000 Armed Troops

By Mike Adams, December 1, 2008 | Key concepts: Posse Comitatus, Police state and Pentagon

In direct violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids military troops from playing a role in domestic law enforcement, the Pentagon has announced plans to station 20,000 armed, uniformed troops inside the United States where they will walk the streets, ready to "respond to terrorism events," says the Pentagon.

It's against the law, but since when did the Bush Administration or the Pentagon pay any attention to law in the first place?

Here at NaturalNews, we've warned about the coming police state for many years. Now it is upon us, with the mass militarization of our cities and streets. It won't be long before we'll start hearing "papers please" as we try to move about our own cities in a nation many people foolishly believe to still be "free."

This recent push, of course, stems from the New York subway threat, which for all we know was entirely made up by the U.S. government for precisely this purpose -- to scare the population into accepting 20,000 troops on the streets. It's a lesson the Bush Administration learned well with the 9/11 terrorist attacks: People will gladly give up their freedoms if you scare them to death with real (or engineered) terrorist events first.

Oh, and don't forget what the terrorist hate us for. "They hate America because it's free," say the war apologists. So their plan, it seems, is to take away America's freedoms before the terrorists do!

So now, with 20,000 troops walking the streets brandishing military weapons, it is the U.S. population that will be terrorized by the aggressive military presence. Think about it: When you walk into an area with lots of military personnel sporting assault rifles, do you feel comfort, or do you feel fear? Normal people feel more fear. They intuitively think, "Gee, there must be something dangerous here, or there wouldn't be armed military personnel standing guard," and they feel a sense of apprehension.

The real reason for 20,000 troops?

It's ridiculous to think that 20,000 troops can offer any meaningful response to a terrorism event. If a dirty bomb goes off, or a chemical weapons attack takes place, the only thing left to do will be to clean up the bodies, and you don't need 20,000 military troops to do that (National Guard troops can handle it just fine).

20,000 troops also aren't going to prevent a terrorist attack. Do you think the terrorists walk around in orange jumpsuits with the word "terrorist" painted on the back? No, they blend in like everybody else. They easily got by airport security in 2001, and they can easily make their way through the streets of the USA in 2009, regardless of a military presence.

So what's the REAL reason for stationing 20,000 military troops in the U.S.?

Think about it. Historically, during what times have military troops ever been used to protect the centralization of power?

If you've read much history -- especially European history -- you probably suspect, as I do, that the real purpose of the 20,000 troops is to have a military force to prevent the breakup of the United States of America.

You see, a financial collapse in Washington is imminent. This Federal Reserve bailout is just short-term cover that accomplishes nothing. You can't save an economy from endless bad debt by creating yet more bad debt. With the derivatives market hovering somewhere beyond $500 trillion, it will be impossible for the Fed to bail out all the failures without bankrupting the U.S. taxpayers and destroying the U.S. currency first.

With a defunct currency and the inevitable riots and social unrest that always follows the massive theft of money from the people, the U.S. will be ripe for Balkanization, or the breaking up of regions that will declare their own sovereignty. One Russian analyst famously predicted several weeks ago that the United States would break into seven new nations, each with its own laws, its own military and its own political power.

What's the best way to prevent such a breakup? Show up with 20,000 troops and force the member states to back down at gunpoint.

But you might ask why wouldn't the federal government just use the National Guard to accomplish this? Why does it need Pentagon troops? The answer is simple: Because the National Guard troops are controlled by the STATES.. It is, in fact, the National Guard troops that will be fighting for the freedom of their regions, fighting to break off from the tyrannical federal government that has already engineered the greatest financial swindle in history and now wants to maintain power over all the states, too.

This is the new civil war that will be shaping up: National Guard troops vs. the Pentagon's troops. And that is why the Pentagon is calling 20,000 troops into the homeland right now: It's preparing for a civil war and the potential breakup of the nation.

There will be a time when Washington is so bankrupt (both financially and morally), so corrupt and so far beyond saving that intelligent states like California will simply declare themselves to be sovereign nations. Although there may be the threat of military force to prevent such actions in the short term, ultimately Washington will be powerless to stop it because it will be unable to fund the military effort with worthless U.S. dollars. And if just one state successfully breaks away from the union, it will set a precedent that other states will follow.

Even today, Hawaii and Vermont are already talking secession. Many regions of Oregon and Texas are also in the same discussions. If Washington becomes weak, you can expect to see the fragmentation of the nation. It will likely be a bloody event, complete with Martial Law, food shortages, money supply problems and the works.

He's been predicting this for many years, and although his radio show might be described by some as "inflammatory," he's been right on the money on issues like this one, and he has accurately predicted the mass militarization of the United States by the Pentagon.

From Msnbc.msn.com: There are critics of the change, in the military and among civil liberties groups and libertarians who express concern that the new homeland emphasis threatens to strain the military and possibly undermine the Posse Comitatus Act, a 130-year-old federal law restricting the military's role in domestic law enforcement.... more
