US troops asked if they could shoot American citizens (prisonplanet)

This is what I've been fearing for some time now. The institution of
martial law in the US.

Now we begin to realize what gun registration is really all about.
The US
state wants to know who has guns so that it can take away those guns
preceding martial law so that armed resistance will become

Now we know why many US vets, under a new bill, are being disallowed
possess guns on the phony charge of being traumatized in the war.

Now we know what the closing of guns shops in the US is all about.

Now we know why ammunition and guns are being made hard to get in the

Now we know what the centralization of US gun manufacturers under
control is all about.

Now we know what the plan to have identification methods for each
fired so that each shell can be matched with any particular gun is all

Now we know what the US training program for pastors to advise their
not to resist and to willingly give themselves over to the state when
begins to round up people for concentration camps.

Now we know what the tens of thousands of boxcars with shackles and
the many
concentration camps that are fully staffed in the US is all about.

Think it can't happen in Canada? Think we are immune? Think again.

We will follow the US in lockstep. There will be no political
from the Conservatives and the Liberals.

U.S. Troops Asked If They Would Shoot American Citizens
Iraq vet exposes how he was trained to round up Americans in martial
exercise, asked if he would kill his own friends and family

U.S. troops are being trained to conduct round-ups, confiscate guns
shoot American citizens, including their own friends and family
members, as
part of a long-standing program to prepare for the declaration of
law, according to a soldier who recently returned from Iraq.

We received an e mail from "Scott", a member of a pipefitters union
runs an apprenticeship program called Helmets To Hard Hats, which
to its website, "Is a national program that connects National Guard,
and transitioning active-duty military members with quality career
and employment opportunities within the construction industry."

Scott writes that his company hired a soldier who had recently
returned from
Iraq, who told him that U.S. troops were being quizzed on whether or
they would be prepared to shoot their own friends and family members
a national state of emergency in America.

"I have become very close to this young man and have gained his
respect and
trust," writes Scott. "I want you to know that he informed me about
particular training exercise his superiors made them perform. It was
concerning the rounding up of American citizens that disobey any type
martial law or in other words any type of infringement on our

"He was asked if he could shoot his friends or family members if
ordered to
do so. At the time he said he could," writes Scott.

Scott says that the soldier later "had time to clear his head" and
the truth, recanting his vow to kill his own countrymen if ordered to
do so.

The issue of whether U.S. troops would be prepared to round-up,
disarm and
if necessary shoot Americans who disobeyed orders during a state of
law is a question that military chiefs have been attempting to answer
for at
least 15 years.

Its known origins can be traced back to an October 1994 Marine
out of the Twentynine Palms Marine Base in California. Recruits were
46 questions, including whether they would kill U.S. citizens who
refused to
surrender their firearms.

Documentary film maker Alex Jones brought to light similar training
that were taking place across the country in the late 90's which
around U.S. Marines being trained to arrest American citizens and
take them
to internment camps.

During one such program in Oakland California, dubbed "Operation Urban
Warrior," Marines refused to answer if they would target American
for gun confiscation if ordered to do so.

During hurricane Katrina, National Guard units were ordered to
guns belonging to New Orleans residents.

As we first exposed in May 2006, Clergy Response Teams are being
trained by
the federal government and FEMA to "quell dissent" and pacify
citizens to
obey the government in the event of a declaration of martial law.

Pastors and other religious representatives are being taught to become
secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey the
government" in preparation for the implementation of martial law,
and firearm seizures, mass vaccination programs and forced relocation.

Many scoffed at our original story, which was based on the testimony
of a
whistleblower who was asked to participate in the program. Claims
that the
story was a conspiracy theory soon evaporated when a mainstream KSLA
report confirmed the existence of the program.

The experiences of U.S. troops in the worst areas of Iraq, where
are ordered to go door to door and arrest all men of military age as
well as
confiscate their weapons, is a mere portend of what is being planned
America if these training programs ever come to fruition.
