On November 18th, U.S. Marines collected biometrics during an urban warfare training drill within the training city of Wardah-Mir at the Marine Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, California.
“The Marines conducted foot-patrols, room clearing and search operations where they collected biometric data and other evidence on citizens displaying suspicious behavior or possessing contraband,” the Marines official website reported.
The Marines practiced several TSE scenarios, including vehicle and home searches, where they also applied military operations in urban terrain techniques.
“We cordoned-off the area, provided perimeter security, and conducted room clearing before executing the TSE,” said Sgt. Joseph R. Apsey, security team leader, Company B, CLB-4.
Suspects were processed using a handheld interagency identity detection equipment system, which compared their biometric data, such as fingerprints and iris scans, to a central database, according to Apsey.
While the Marines that took part in this specific simulation were training for urban warfare in Afghanistan (According to government reports and photos from the scene), the fact remains that this type of training could be easily implemented for use within the United States and, sadly, the Pentagon has already openly planned and trained for military operations against the American people.
Using the cover of training for Afghan policing situations, these troops could easily replace the Afghan actors with real Americans. Considering the fact that the Rand Corporation openly called for such an internal military police force, this possibility doesn’t seem too far off.
Thankfully, many within the military actually support Ron Paul and will most likely NOT fire on American citizens although the higher ups within the Pentagon have clearly ordered large scale training for that very situation.
