    Just last month, unilateral changes to US military laws formally granted the Pentagon extraordinary powers to intervene in a domestic “emergency” or “civil disturbance”:

    “Federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances.”

    Other documents show that the “extraordinary emergencies” the Pentagon is worried about include a range of environmental and related disasters.

      I am sorry but I just don't see the military randomly intervening like you suggest they will.

        state of denial imaginable.

        Fucking pathetic.
