Are we headed for Martial Law in America?
Are forces being set in motion to defeat the American people from within it’s own borders?
Will ‘We the People’ have time to respond if these things happen?

I despise fear mongering so don’t take the above questions out of context. I do like to look at the facts and draw conclusions from those facts. Here I will just present the facts and leave it to you to post your conclusions as comments…

On September 30 it was announced in the Army Times that Brigade homeland tours will start Oct. 1. The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team (BCT) has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys. Now they are training for the same mission at home. Beginning October 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or man made emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks. This new mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom, a joint command established in 2002 to provide command and control for federal homeland defense efforts and coordinate defense support of civil authorities. After 1st BCT finishes its dwell-time mission, expectations are that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that the mission will be a permanent one.

Also from the article and I quote: “The 1st BCT’s soldiers also will learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded,” 1st BCT commander Col. Roger Cloutier said, referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.

The package is for use only in war-zone operations, not for any domestic purpose.”…well I feel better.

And during the infamous bailout debate we heard about Martial Law on the floor of the Congress:

How secure is our Freedom and how willing is OUR government to take it away??
