    What's coming up in the future.

    Several of my friends in the military stated that they are now training for dealing with protesters like what is going on in Gaza. Is our military going to be a police force and get in the middle of that mess. I think this is a bad move and the soldiers have a bad feeling about it too.

    The army already does a lot of that.

    I wonder if they are preparing for protests on this side of the Atlantic...

    I trained for riot control in the late 80's when I was in the army, too. More so when I was in the national guard after I ETS'ed. I think it's more for home than abroad, though.

    I believe that the military is training for overseas incidents like that.

    I would be far more concerned if our Department of Homeland Security morphs into a militarized national police force.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    No one seems to bring this statement up for discussion lately... Combined with the large ammo orders, which I tough were restocking but was told I was incorrect.. And maybe a picture begins to develop.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Obama's response to all of the succession petition be the suspension of Habias Corpus.

    Remember this was all for our protection after 9-11. However Something changed somewhere along the way to where we are now.

    It will make you think of which law the soldiers will answer, unlawful orders or constitutional orders? Most say they will do as they are told.
    The way things are going in this country, I'm prob. a dead man or prisoner. I realy hope this is all a bad dream.

    It could be a major conspiracy about secret government military training to suppress Americans.

    More likely it's just routine training and/or a result of increased violent protests in a region where our military forces are operating.

    Much like the other week when some people were stating "Ermagerd! Marines are training for house-to-house searches and combat! Obama gon' take our guns!". Obviously that's the case, rather than Marines doing routine training as they prepare to enter urban warzones...

    No need for the tin foil hats in my opinion.
