Americans should question WHY these Military Vehicles came from Maryland to St. Louis? WHY was it NOT appropriate to train the Army Reservists on the nearest military base?

Obama’s “Consequence Management Response Force”
The brigade will not change its name, but the force will be known for the next year as a CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force, or CCMRF (pronounced “sea-smurf”).
 There is a suspicious correction at the end of this article: A non-lethal crowd control package fielded to 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, described in the original version of this story, is intended for use on deployments to the war zone, not in the U.S., as previously stated.
“…this is the first time that these modules were consolidated and this package fielded…because of this mission we’re undertaking we were the first to get it.”
And, why didn’t the BCT learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package” during their 35 months in a war zone? Why now? The answer is, the Army needs lethal in a war zone. It needs non-lethal at home.
Read what the colonel said:
The colonel’s “mission” is in the United States — does Obama now consider the homeland a “war zone?”
Tasked by the FBI to provide “informational analysis” on conditions which could be construed as potentially harmful to civil order and national security, InfraGard, of the FBI’s National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC), issued an unclassified Protective Intelligence Communication report in March 2009 regarding the “crescendo” of public concern about Obama’s presidential eligibility.
Authored by Dr. Lyle J. Rapacki, Protective Intelligence Specialist and Agent, the report summarizes the substance of legal challenges to Obama on the question of his constitutional eligibility and concludes that if it “should be discovered Mr. Obama is ineligible, a constitutional crisis would ensue attempting to determine which of his executive branch orders should be valid.” It goes on to warn that “if…Mr. Obama fights revealing his documentation, there is growing concern of civil unrest, or worse, being unleashed in the streets of our nation. The economic crisis coupled with this type of a constitutional crisis could prove to be a flashpoint that would test conventional law enforcement and elements of homeland security.”
The stream of law suits, the most recent of which have been tendered by high ranking military officers and state legislators, to compel Obama to prove his eligibility have been unremitting and increasingly vocal. A request for “quo warranto” action, an apparent last-ditch legal remedy, was recently delivered to both the US Attorney for the District of Columbia and to the Attorney General.
Dovetailing with this unsettling assessment, and pretty much out of public view, are the following national security developments which, in their totality, could well signal acute domestic instability in the period ahead.
Upon the recommendation of the Army’s Strategic Studies Institute, The Army Times reported that a somewhat euphemistically dubbed “Consequence Management Response Force (CCMRF),” currently the role of the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team, but which, reportedly, might eventually comprise upwards of 80,000 troops, is being trained and readied to deal with what could be widespread civil disorder resulting from an “unforeseen economic collapse” or “loss of a functional political and legal order.”
Symptomatic of festering civil unrest are the many “tea parties” springing up around the country, growing fears of economic disintegration and of both crippling terrorist attacks and even of perceived federal overreaching. Add to this the very real threat of a rogue nuclear EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) attack on the homeland which could instantaneously reduce the country to a paralytic pre-industrial condition, plus the unrest on our southern border, and there appears to be ample and justifiable cause for concern and appropriate contingency planning at every level of government.
Clearly, a perfect storm could, indeed, be brewing. Thus, it is only prudent that we are all properly prepared.

Playing the “Devil’s Advocate HERE”:
What IF Obama activates this force at his whim of what HE considers a “National Emergency”?
The National Guard has already been deployed to places…… even the Kentucky Derby.

WHO were they supposed to be protecting? The Horses?
Or is this a test of America’s acceptance of the National Guard or National Security Forces being visual among the populace?

Additional parts from the Army Times that are worrisome:
The 1st BCT’s soldiers also will learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded,” 1st BCT commander Col. Roger Cloutier said, referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.
After 1st BCT finishes its dwell-time mission, expectations are that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that the mission will be a permanent one.
The package includes equipment to stand up a hasty road block; spike strips for slowing, stopping or controlling traffic; shields and batons; and, beanbag bullets.

CBRNE is made of three divisions, 9.1, 10.1 and 10.2; 10.1 and 10.2 are being trained to be ready by Oct. 1. Basilica heads up the 10.2 task force, which consists of reserve-component units.
The CCRMF is only used after all local, state and federal resources have been exhausted, Basilica and Collins said.
“We hope to God that there are no terrorist attacks or no major industrial accident in the U.S. where the city, state or federal government might ask for additional capabilities. We hope that does not happen, but if it does, I think it’s a great story for the nation that you have these multiple CCMRF forces that would be trained and ready to step in and assist the states if they ask for extra help,” Collins said.
