"Small Wars Journel" is a federal establishment "thinktank" journel, and those snots won't allow a direct link on Free Republic. Really, you need to go to the orignial article and read it all. Google "Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A Vision of the Future" by Kevin Benson and Jennifer Weber to find it.
Colonel Benson, USA (ret) is on the staff at the war college at Ft Leavenworth. This is not Prison Planet kookery. This is the real deal.
Out of all possible civil disorder scenarios COL Benson could have envisioned, he chose evil white racist "tea party terrorists" taking over a Southern city.
Naturally, the Glorious Fatherland 5th Army (NORTHCOM) must be sent to South Carolina to crush the rebellion. I kid you not. You have got to read this, even though I can't post the direct link here.
Those bitter clingers always cause the trouble. Especially the ones in the South. LOL!!
“... takes over the government of Darlington, South Carolina, occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council, and placing the mayor under house arrest. Activists remove the chief of police and either disarm local police and county sheriff departments or discourage them from interfering...”
IF it ever gets that bad, I figure the rebellion will be county-by-county.
The urban areas will be lawless “no-mans-land”.
“Support Your Local Sheriff”
Try as they might, they fall flat because to date the Tea Party's record has been:
0 confrontations with Law Enforcement
0 arrests for violence
0 arrests for property damage
0 arrests for anything
Compare that to OWS, a weekend in Chicago, or racially motivated flash mobs for lootings or beatings. Mordor-on-the-Potomac simply fears We the People, our resurrected knowledge of our founding principles, and that over 10 million firearms have been sold each year since Soetoro's election.
i wonder where this guy's loyalties really are? did HE lay out the scenario blaming the TP or was it laid out for him???
The comments at the site are interesting, are they not? What is so disturbing about the article is the mindset on display. The authors remain unapologetic.
“Congratulations to COL (Ret) Benson. You have just hit the national political scene via Free Republic. The headlines will read: “US ARMY PLANNING TO QUELL TEA PARTY INSURRECTIONS.” This article should be a thoughtful discussion on the process of suppressing potential insurrections and Military/Defense Support to Civil Authorities. However, your scenario using the TEA Party, combined with your credentials as a Seminar Leader at Ft Leavenworth, has a high potential of causing a major political firestorm on the national level. Your scenario could easily give the President, the SECDEF, the CJCS, the SECARMY, and the CoS a political black eye. You have given credibility to the conspiracy theorists who believe the President is preparing to implement martial law to stay in power, and have undermined the faith which so many of the TEA Party members place in the United States Military to support and defend the Constitution. For an author who discusses the importance of information operations your article, you have demonstrated your utter incompetence in this area.
