To paraphrase FA Hayek, nothing is more fatal than the present fashion among ‘intellectual‘ leaders of extolling security at the expense of freedom.
US Stability Police Force On The Way
(Moonbattery) Remember before the election, when Barack Hussein Obama warned us that he would create an SS-style domestic army that would be “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the US Armed Forces, the most powerful and well-funded military in the history of the world? Like his promises to make energy prices skyrocket and to bankrupt the coal industry that provides us with half our energy, this is one he will try to keep. The Rand Corporation has released a massive 213-page study entitled A Stability Police Force for the United States: Justification and Options for Creating U.S. Capabilities (PDF): HERE
This wasn’t an exercise in idle speculation. The study was prepared for the United States Army, at the top of which you will find cringing lackeys obedient to Obama.
If you’re asking yourself how they can just keep looting and wasting when it’s obvious the collapsing economy will drag the country into total chaos if they don’t stop, here’s your answer. Obama et al. want it to collapse, and they plan to be ready when it does.
Sad Hill found these gems while mining the Stability Police Force (SPF – Sun Protection Factor???) document. Just ignore the new world order, nation building, marshall law, Euro Chic-like bits…
The ‘Need’ For High-End Policing Capacity
Page 1: This work builds on recent RAND Arroyo Center analysis. Stability operations involve efforts “to maintain or reestablish a safe and secure environment, provide essential governmental services, emergency infrastructure reconstruction, and humanitarian relief.”
Page 3: High-end police fill a critical gap between military forces and civilian police. They are trained to deal with higher levels of crime and violence than regular civilian police, and are able to perform such tasks as high-end criminality identification, criminal investigation, special weapons and tactics (SWAT), crowd and riot control, and intelligence collection and analysis. Importantly, they are often the only police force able to counter organized criminal groups embedded in the emerging power structures.
Page 4: The recent U.S. experience in stability operations clearly indicates that establishing security is critical, because it is difficult to achieve other objectives—such as rebuilding political and economic systems—without it. Experts and the literature clearly indicate that both military and police forces are necessary to do this. But the United States has a mixed track record in establishing security, partly because it lacks the policing component of this force. Recent history indicates that the cost of not fixing this gap is likely to be significant.
Page 6: The most significant part of these operations is the establishment of security. George Tanham, associate director for counterinsurgency for the U.S. Agency for International Development in South Vietnam and special assistant for counterinsurgency to the U.S. ambassador in Thailand, argued in the 1960s: “Strange as it may seem, the military victory is the easiest part of the struggle. After this has been attained, the real challenge begins: the reestablishment of a secure environment opens a new opportunity for nation building.” Other objectives, such as political freedom, economic growth, and improving health conditions are important. They help set the conditions in which security can be maintained, and they contribute to a rightly ordered society. But for these objectives to be realized, a basic level of security is critical. The absence of security makes it difficult to rebuild political, economic, and other sectors.
Page 7: The cost of failing to deal with major internal security threats is high. It can undermine the stability and strength of the government; undercut efforts to reconstruct the political, social, and economic framework necessary for future stability; provide the precursors for insurgencies to gain a foothold; and ultimately undermine U.S. interests.
There is a Communist living in the White House!
