In the News (from American Free Press): “In November 2010, CNBC’s Eamon Javers had this to say about last year’s exercise: ‘Ever since the crash of 2008, the defense-intelligence establishment has been paying a lot of attention to global markets and how they can serve as a threat to U.S. national security interests.’
“Javers went on to report: ‘The Army is having a very interesting yearlong exercise called Unified Quest 2011. In that war-gaming series, the Army is looking at the implications of a large-scale economic breakdown in the U.S. that would force the Army to keep domestic order amid civil unrest and deal with global fragmented power and drastically lower budgets.’
“Officials picked the scenario of a worldwide economic collapse because it was deemed a plausible course of events given the current global security environment. In such a future, the United States would be broke, causing a domino effect that would push economies across the globe into chaos.”
“According to Army Lt. Col. Mark Elfendahl, these were some of the conclusions drawn during a three-day session connected to that exercise: ‘The Army would have to significantly alter its ‘investment portfolio,’ focusing on light and inexpensive forces… an increased focus on domestic activities might be a way of justifying whatever Army force structure the country can still afford.’
“‘The only silver lining,’ concluded the article, is that ‘the Army would have an influx of qualified recruits as the result of an unemployment rate of 25 and 30 percent.’
“Tracing the government’s contingency plans back even further—to 2008—we find The Washington Post and Russia Today both reporting on the Pentagon’s plans to train 20,000 troops by 2011 to help as a response to threats of a possible mass terror attack or civil unrest following an economic collapse.
“In July, Shepard Ambelas wrote for the popular alternative news website The Intel Hub that the Pentagon’s 2008 announcement dovetails ‘into the current troop and equipment movements around the country reported by truckers as well as many troop sightings by citizens.’”
My Comment: Namely in order to prevent clashes between exasperated citizens and the authorities, we suggest creating a wide education and upbringing network for newly unemployed and, in general, for all citizens in advance. Only this will allow everyone to understand the new world that is being born and what exactly the new circumstances require from us. This will help us go through the birth of the new society of mutual guarantee peacefully.
