The Coup of 2012

Encroachment upon Basic Freedoms, Militarized Police State in America
Frank Morales
Back in 1992 the Pentagon’s Joint Chiefs of Staff held a "Strategy Essay Competition."
The winner was a National War College student paper entitled, "The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012." Authored by Colonel Charles J. Dunlap, Jr. the paper is a well documented, "darkly imagined excursion into the future." The ostensibly fictional work is written from the perspective of an imprisoned senior military officer about to be executed for opposing the military takeover of America, a coup accomplished through "legal" means. The essay makes the point that the coup was "the outgrowth of trends visible as far back as 1992," including "the massive diversion of military forces to civilian uses," particularly law enforcement.

Go here for the essay:

I'll bet a shotgun blast to the fucking throat area with 00 would take all the fight right out of that storm trooper and his beating stick. Then shove that beating stick right up his ass.

Chilling and certainly thought provoking; especially his recommendations at the end. For some reason, the visage of Gen. Wesley Clark kept coming to my mind's eye, and Obama's call back in 2007 for a civilian corps equivalent to the military. We need to remain vigilant, and ever cautious of any knee-jerk reaction to always support our troops...

You anywhere near Pismo, Ken? ◄Dave►
