F.E.A.R. AND LOATHING in the US Army.
http://chronicle.augusta.com/...

Prosecutors said the group called itself F.E.A.R., short for Forever Enduring Always Ready. Pauley said authorities don’t know how many members the militia had.
Burnett, 26, said he knew the group’s leaders from serving with them at Fort Stewart. He agreed to testify against Pvt. Isaac Aguigui, identified by prosecutors as the militia’s founder and leader, Sgt. Anthony Peden and Pvt. Christopher Salmon.

from the Atlanticwire article:

The prosecutor said the militia group had big plans. It plotted to take over Fort Stewart by seizing its ammunition control point and talked of bombing the Forsyth Park fountain in nearby Savannah, she said. In Washington state, she added, the group plotted to bomb a dam and poison the state’s apple crop. Ultimately, prosecutors said, the militia’s goal was to overthrow the government and assassinate the president.
All are charged by state authorities with malice murder, felony murder, criminal gang activity, aggravated assault and using a firearm while committing a felony. A hearing for the three soldiers was scheduled Thursday.
Is this the product of all the agitprop from the "Right" that is continually looped on "Armed Forces Radio? or are these traitors simply, oh, I don't know pawns of something else? According to the article, they had $87,000 worth of armaments stockpiled.

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.

    during the #FlushRush petition signature quest.

    Been trying to formulate a rebuttal to AFN's decision against the petition request -- get Rush off AFN -- by using the thoughts from those posts. Toward the end of the quest, I wondered if there was a debriefing of the troops including what they regularly listened to, and compare that among other factors to measurable anger levels. IANAPsychologist, but I thought it would be interesting to know if the Hour of Hate has an effect.

    Since the Rush Comedy Hour is free to AFN, they could give a shit less. "They don't censor," they say. It's my understanding 1 hr of the 3-hr show is broadcast. They allow this extremely controversial, does-more-harm-than-good mouth to squat on our air for decades. Your description of it as being continually looped is chilling. I have to locate a program guide.

  •  I have a lot of reservations re this 'plot'. (0+ / 0-)

    The ringleader was a Pvt (?) with no leadership experience.
    The arrest took place nine months ago, 12/11/2011.

    My spidey sense tells me there's much more to the story than what we've been given.

    And, for your title coup-coup-kah-coup I can only think of the McKenzie Brothers in the Great White North.

    I don't mean to belittle your diary. I just don't get the coup-coup-kah-coup reference. What am I missing?
