Troops To Stay National/Local

A new report from the U.S. Army War College discusses the use of
American troops to quell civil unrest brought about by a worsening
economic crisis.

The report from the War College’s Strategic Studies Institute warns
that the U.S. military must prepare for a “violent, strategic
dislocation inside the United States” that could be provoked by
“unforeseen economic collapse” or “loss of functioning political and
legal order.”

Entitled “Known Unknowns: Unconventional ‘Strategic Shocks’ in
Defense Strategy Development,” the report was produced by
Nathan Freier, a recently retired Army lieutenant colonel who is a
professor at the college — the Army’s main training institute for
prospective senior officers. - Global Research
