Troops Deployed for Domestic PolicingPosse Comitatus be damned, the Iowa Army National Guard's 1st Battalion, 194th Field Artillery, will be ordered to federal active duty in locations within the United States for homeland security missions as part of Operation Noble Eagle II, according to a news release from the Iowa National Guard. (see The Globe Gazette)
Can we not "connect the dots" here? Is this troop deployment to guard against what few scraggly Al Qaeda are left, perhaps running around with boxcutters near some domestic airport? Was the black army of state troopers in Portland last Friday not a clear enough picture of what the fascists have in mind here?
Where are the heroes who will stand up for American government of the people?
