This is the last of 3 diaries I wrote over at WordPress on VS-08,

Just a Reminder...

,

War Lovers...

up date, The Vigilant Shield - 08, is a drill that will revolve around staged Nukes being set-off in 5 areas of the states. Other countries involved are, Canada, England, Australia, and Guam.

Well Monday will start the VS-08 drills, and still no mention of them in the MSM. It seems that if you thought anything of the people in the country you would put this one out there. Well, that is not really true I guess? When the only things you look at are ratings and the dollar value of the things you put out there, I figure you care what they will bite on.

VS-08 is being treated the same way that SPP/North American Union was treated. No God Damn coverage at all. Of course you could find some articles on the Web, but unless you draw your information from what the Media itself tells you is credible, people call you a tin-foil hatter, or my favorite is, "Anyone can put Anything, at Anytime, they want on the Net.

Ok, The SPP/NAU, is here, VS-08 will be here in a day and a half. What are we going to do? Nothing! The very thing Americans are good at, Doing Nothing. Common when was the last time we as a nation stood up and did something to protect our Rights and Freedoms. Do not say this Iraq invasion, if did lock yourself in your bedroom, and don’t come out unless we need you! I would say maybe WWII depending on how you look at history. Korea, and Vietnam had nothing to do with the freedoms of this country, and neither did either of the Iraqi conflicts.

Oh the groups running this war are crafty, that would tell you right away it is not, "The Windshield Cowboy", G.W. Bush. Without getting side tracked, your foreign policy is being run by such think tanks as PNAC. They are running this so that for as long as possible the average American does not have to make any sacrifices. No war tax, no draft, oh yes there is one sacrifice they are asking of you, "Go shopping."

Sorry I went on that rant, But God Damn it makes me Mad that the people don’t rise up and do something. But you might be saying to yourself, "Badass, the polls show that the American People are against this War, and administration. In which I say to you "Big Freaking Deal!" What is there to saying "NO I don’t like the war." Well ok, you had to get up from the T.V. and walk to the phone, (and that’s if you don’t have wireless), you had to turn the volume down, and answer the question. Big Freaking whoop. Look where I am going with this is unless Shawn, or Rush, or Keith, or Wolf, tell us most of the country does not know.

Why should we worry about VS-08? Well let’s look at some recent history, September 11, 2001, and July 07, 2005. On both occasions drills were being run at the exact time and places that the attacks occurred. (Hum)

A very informative read on the NORAD drills of 9-11-2001 is, Military Drills on 9-11...

Look I cannot say that we will be attacked, or that the martial law drill will go completely live and people will be locked up or held in there homes. Nothing may happen at all, in fact I hope that nothing does. But you see, I feel as long as we are out here making people aware of what the government is up to, and the groups that lead them around by the nose, see we are aware, it won’t happen .

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      someone besides me to read this. It was the poll that alerted me to the true topic of this diary, since I had no isea what 'VS-08' means, even though I was already aware of Vigilant Shield exercises.

      Your tags:

      VS-08, G.W.Bush, Drill, Martial Law

      Suggested tag edit:

      Vigilant Shield, George W. Bush, Martial Law

      This set of tags would be like the ones on your Operation Falcon diary from March.

      A title change would help. Something like 'Martial Law Prep. Drills Tomorrow'

    From the provided link:

    For those of you that have not heard of the Martial Law drill, Vigilante Shield 08, it is a drill that is being run by North Com in Portland Oregon starting on the 15th of October, and running through the 20th.

    It would be helpful if this information were included in the diary.

    As to content, exercises like VS-08 are disturbing. It's not so much that I fear a tinfoil-type attack by our own government. But it does train and propagandize local authorities and first responders to a militarized, authoritarian way of thinking and reacting.
