Why are foreign troops being trained to provide security at U.S. events?
IT’S WORTH CONSIDERING
Last July 1 Infowars.com reported that a deal had been signed in Washington DC between the Russian
Emergency Situations Ministry and FEMA. According to the deal resulting from the June 25 meeting, Russian officials would be prepared to provide “security at mass events” in the United States. The two nations would also exchange experts to coordinate “joint rescue operations” during future major disasters. (This was actually the 17th Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations.) According to the agreement, events designated as “National Special Security Events” by the Department of Homeland Security, would include the Super Bowl, and international summits such as the G8 and presidential inaugurations.
This is not a new idea. Back in 2008 it was also reported that US and Canadian authorities had signed an agreement that would pave the way to using each other’s militaries on both sides of the border “during an emergency.” Alex Jones of Infowars.com has documented foreign troops being trained on U.S. soil to deal with “insurgents” since the late 1990s as part of urban warfare drills.
Back in July 2010, Infowar’s reporters covered the Operation Vigilant Guard exercises in Chicago which
involved Polish troops training alongside U.S. National Guard troops in drills focused around raiding terrorists and drug dealers. As Mac Slavo writes, “Rumors have circulated for years about the possibility of foreign troops being deployed on U.S. soil in the event of a widespread declaration of a national emergency. For quite some time there have been anecdotal reports to support the claim that the U.N., Russia and other nations would be used in a policing capacity should some critical event befall our nation.”
AS I SEE IT
I can see a need for cooperation between US and Canadian forces during an emergency, but all the other “joint operations” are downright scary. In fact, the use of foreign troops or other officials in a law enforcement capacity providing “security” inside the United States is illegal under a US federal Law known as Posse Comitatus. Despite this prohibition, examples of international training on US soil have occurred on numerous occasions. Some have been with the express purpose of training foreign troops on the most effective procedures for confiscating guns from American citizens.
Those who are aware of these exercises are rightly concerned about the likely possibility that foreign soldiers would act under the banner of their own flags, ignoring the fundamental protections afforded to our citizens, leaving Americans under the jurisdiction of people who don’t speak our language or respect our fundamental rights to self defense, to be secure in our homes, and to be presumed innocent in the eyes of the law.
You’ve got to wonder, however, if all the recent tensions with Russia over its recent incursions into Ukraine have dampened Obama’s enthusiasm over partnering with Russia in sharing troops. Considering what Barack Obama has done to diminish American sovereignty through backdoor deals within the UN, it’s not surprising that these (and probably other) training missions have been conducted under the radar. Who knows what’s going on behind the scenes? Here we have just one more example of the mischief the wizard behind the curtain is up to.
