A retired U.S. Army colonel who now teaches modern warfare to soldiers at the University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. has co-written an article with a Civil War expert that has ignited a firestorm today among those increasingly concerned about what some say is a distinct anti-civilian tone that has infected much of the military and Homeland Security since 2009. Retired Col. Kevin Benson and Jennifer Weber, Associate Professor of History at the University of Kansas, co-wrote an article for Small Wars Journal on a 2010 Army report titled, "U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, The Army Operating Concept 2016 - 2028." The report describes how the Army will respond to threats "at home and abroad" in the coming two decades and in doing so has made clear that a monumental cultural shift has occurred in the thinking of those at the top levels of military command. This shift has some government watchdogs worried, particularly given that Benson is using the platform provided at Fort Leavenworth to educate military personnel in his vision of the nature of modern warfare in America. According to the vision articulated by Benson, future warfare will be conducted on our own soil. The military will use its full force against our own citizens. The enemy will be average citizens whose values resonate with those articulated by the tea party. http://www.examiner.com/article/arm...th-article-on-crushing-a-tea-party-insurgency Forbes: How the U.S. Military Would Crush a Tea Party Rebellion ...In fact, the Armyâs operating concept for 2016 to 2028 considers highly likely a future where the U.S. is threatened by âradical U.S. citizens operating domestically and abroadâ. The Pentagon was probably thinking of Al Qaeda sympathizers in the U.S., but radicals come in all flavors. Benson and Weber boldly argue that âif we face a period of persistent global conflict as outlined in successive National Security Strategy documents, then Army officers are professionally obligated to consider the conduct of operations on U.S. soil.â They also argue that preparations for such a scenario must begin now, including proper equipment for the U.S. military as well as liaison between federal and state authorities. Actually, the issue is really the conduct of operations against U.S. citizens on U.S. soil http://www.forbes.com/sites/michael...s-military-would-crush-a-tea-party-rebellion/ House Dem: Tea Party is the 'real enemy' http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/177927-dem-reps-target-tea-party-as-the-enemy DHS: Veterans a terrorist threat http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/apr/16/napolitano-stands-rightwing-extremism/?page=all http://www.examiner.com/article/hom...t-returning-war-veterans-are-terrorist-threat Liberty Lovers are "Extreme Right-Wing" terrorists: DHS http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/co...labels-liberty-lovers-as-potential-terrorists http://www.theblaze.com/stories/hom...ual-liberty-as-extreme-right-wing-terrorists/ Lets connect the dots: 1) Liberty lovers are terrorists 2) Veterans are terrorists 3) The Tea Party are terrorists 4) The US Army is preparing for civil war against the American People on US soil. 4) Liberals plan either a forced confiscation of guns, or turn the 2nd Amendment into a privilege.
