Get on this! Get out the word!

Truth teller extraordinaire Harry Reid has some ‘splainin’ to do.

Well, if you read this, it sure sounds like the assholes at the Pentagon and Fort Leavenworth are planning on a Tea Party rebellion. Seeing as how those associated with the Tea Party are “racist, militant, domestic terrorists,” as described by our very own Department of Homeland Stupidity, or DHS to me and you.

They are right about one thing though, if they continue to scoff at the Constitution, then there will be a reckoning.

I have bad news for the colonel, there are a hell of a lot more civilians that have military experience and are armed than there are professional soldiers. Oh, and don’t forget, the ranks are filled with right wing nut jobs too. Oh, and they know their oath. I’ll be putting you on my “enemies foreign and DOMESTIC” list if the shit hits the fan colonel. Fwiiiing! (the sound of shit hitting the fan).

Army colonel ignites firestorm with article on crushing a ‘tea party insurgency’

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 indoctrinate soldiers 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.
