The Civilian Expeditionary Force: Obama Says 'Burden' Canít be All on the Military
abc news ^ | June 30, 2010 | Sunlen Miller

Posted on 07/13/2010 5:47:08 PM PDT by starczar66

...Within the administration’s National Security Strategy – released at the end of May – one of the components is a civilian expeditionary force which the White House says is “fundamental” to national security.

“Our diplomatic personnel and missions must be expanded at home and abroad to support the increasingly transnational nature of 21st century security challenges,” the NSS writes, “And we must provide the appropriate authorities and mechanisms to implement and coordinate assistance programs and grow the civilian expeditionary capacity required to assist governments on a diverse array of issues.”

A National Police Force....with all the power of the military.

Barry’s private army of SS troopers.

FUBO!

And Obama is suing AZ for doing what?

AT HOME AND ABROAD??? A civilian security force as well funded as the military? I guess this is a campaign promise that will be fulfilled.

My mother witnessed treatment of the Catholic churches by the Waffen SS. The Black Panthers would fit nicely in that ‘organization’. Same speech, different target.

The only other group that was more feared than the Waffen SS was the Russians.

This was promised during the campaign, so any fool who voted or The Usurper should feel ashamed.

This is scary stuff right out of Hitler’s playbook, which happens to be Axelrod’s playbook too! IMHO

Just what we need! An expansion of the Federal bureaucracy! That Obama’s a genius!

I don’t think these new people will be Obama brownshirts. He’s already got those in the SEIU, ACORN, and the New Black Panther Party.

I recall seeing a clip of one of Obamas speeches where he specifically talks about a National civillian force as big and as well funded as the military. I saw all the people behind him just clapping and I thought to myself they are not listening to what this man is saying I heard it loud and clear and was disgusted and frightened at the same time

Obama: “I will ask for your service and your active citizenship when I am president of the United States ... this will be a central cause of my presidency."

Obama: "People of all ages, stations, and skills will be asked to serve.... I will set a goal for all American middle and high school students to perform 50 hours of service a year, and for all college students to perform 100 hours of service a year...."

And they STILL voted for him..sigh.

July 2 2008 in Colorado Springs –

"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

Yes it does make sense. He is doing everything he has said or his mentors taught him. It is right in the mold he came from. It has all been there to see from the beginning. If they had only remembered who they were really voting for. As it turned out they have doomed us for several decades...maybe longer.

And it was all in writing, just like Hitler and the communists of Russia before Hitler. All in writing and most of the electorate ignored it all!! They just could not believe it was really what any politician would do.

:( well we should buck up and hopefully things can be truned around. I know each night when I go to bed I say a prayer that the evil does in the whitehouse will be exposed and then I pray for America, Funny how most of my life I just flew along by the seat of my pants not really paying much attention to politics unitl the end of Clintons 2nd term and then there was the Bush Gore election and I saw what dirty plitics were with the recount and the scandalous butterfly ballots. I saw how the liberals beat down Bush everyday and sure he did some things I didnt like but at least I did not think of him as evil which is how I truly feel about our current President. One good thing that has come about since the election of Obama is I think people realize how much they love America and that it really is the greatest country on earth

anybody remember the near rebellion in the State Department (during the Bush Admin) because Iraq and Afghanistan were too dangerous. They didn’t have enough volunteers so they were assigning people to those to countrys...

Where does The Dear Leader think he is going to find all these additional civilians willing to go to war zones?

I wonder how many countries he plans to invade and rebuild. If we take him at his word (for the sake of argument) why else would he create a new permanent bureaucracy for the purpose of nation building?

“The president pointed to Iraq and Afghanistan where military personnel are having to engage in work that he said really should be civilian work– like building schools and bridges — because of under-resourcing on the civilian side”

To be fair, he’s right about the folly of the military engaging in work that is not an inherent part of a military mission.

But the real answer is to not engage in “nation building” at all. We do not need to build up a deployable civilian force.

““We just got to be smart about using all the elements of American power, not just one element of American power,” he said. “

There is no other element other than military power - the other “power” that he speaks of is only relevant because of our military power.

I have a different take.

What BHOI really said is the State Department and US AID programs are failures in today's world.

So to fund this new paramilitary organization which be equipped at least as well as the Depart of Defense (his public words not mine), let us totally defund those agencies who are not effective parts in America's projection of national power. Good by State, us AID, peace Corps and others.

The unemployed personnel from those agencies can for the initial cadre for this new paramilitary force.

the end result is improved projection of American power with no increases in budget or personnel costs.

Well, actually there will be a decrease in personnel costs since i seriously doubt all ex-State/US AID/peace Corp personnel will survive their first operational employment. Once that happens the bulk of them will resign and come home thus saving us more money.

IMHO if its broke we shouldn't fund it. BHOI has clearly, and repeatedly identified several Federal agencies and programs that are no longer effect. So let's zero balance their funding lines.
