The original Army Times report also stated that the use of non-lethal weapons against Americans would be a possibility, but a retraction has now been issued stating that the forces would not use nonlethal weaponry domestically.
However, Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman was told by Air Force Lt. Col. Jamie Goodpaster, a public affairs officer for Northern Command, that “Military forces would have weapons on-site, “containerized,” she said — that is, stored in containers — including both lethal and so-called nonlethal weapons. They would have mostly wheeled vehicles, but would also, she said, have access to tanks. She said that use of weapons would be made at a higher level, perhaps at the secretary of defense level.” >>>>>
Americans are slowly learning that the War on Terror is actually a ‘War on Freedom.’ The race is on as to how many institutions that Americans take for granted can be altered to get them to believe that true freedom comes with the responsibility of ethnic cleansing, stealing or occupying lands and altering our own ideologies and identities. “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” is being withered away.
