    Northcom :Brings a whole new meaning to "state side" assignment. And just in time too!
    Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1

    3rd Infantry’s 1st BCT trains for a new dwell-time mission. Helping ‘people at home’ may become a permanent part of the active Army
    The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys.
    Now they’re training for the same mission — with a twist — at home.
    Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks.

    Oh boy, this ain't good. Just got off P/P and they will hit the streets Oct 1st. They will field for the first time a new non lethal package for crowd control right here in this country. This is against Section 1385 of the Posse Comitatus act and carries a two year prison term for violators. This has been repealed in its entirety by HR 4986 The National Defense Authorozation Act back to the state to the state of the Insurrection Act of 1807.

    Funny about the timing. On a bunch of different websites they are talking about something big happening on Oct 7. Something that will make 9/11 pale in comparison. Coincidence or just luck on the timing? You decide. And good luck to everyone I think we're going to need it soon.

    Yea, timing is everything....like when we transported all those prison containers to Gitmo a year before our war on Terror...somebody is either playing with the crystal ball or playing with loaded dice.

    We're not the only ones that smell fish on this one. [shtf]


    BTW, seacowboy, I hadn't heard about the containers to Gitmo before. Interesting...but definitely not surprising.
