Why? Because President-Elect Obama has said that he wants a “civilian domestic security force” to meet “internal security needs” that’s as large as, as powerful as, and as well funded as the military.
Rahm has seconded this, and has hinted at a three, maybe four or six month mandatory training period for all between 18 and 24 including “jumping jacks”, civil defense training, and community activist training.
Now Gates has been tasked with setting the mechanisms up, what do we need, how do we do it, where will the camps be, what will the training entail.
So that trained community activists will know how to handle themselves when their activism takes them to your neighborhood, and mine.
That’s why. Change!
