Bring the Troops Home

Even three years ago,  the following story would be unthinkable in the U.S.

“The Five Minute Forecast,” a daily news digest put out by the same folks that produced the recent award winning documentary I.O.U.S.A., cites a report in the Phoenix Business Journal that the U.S. Army War College is testing scenarios for use of American military troops to quell unrest brought about unrest brought about by the ever worsening economic crisis. The Army believes “economic collapse, terrorism and loss of legal order,” says the Phoenix Business Journal, citing the USAWC, “are among possible domestic shocks that might require military action within the U.S.”

As The Five observes, it brings a whole new meaning to the cry, “Bring the troops home.”
