RAND Corporation Blueprint for Militarized “Stability Police Force”

The RAND Corporation, one of the most fecund research arms of the Military-Industrial-Homeland Security Complex, has released a study entitled A Stability Police Force for the United States: Justification and Creating U.S. Capabilities.

The SPFOR (to use the inevitable acronym) would be a “hybrid” military/law enforcement unit created within the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) for use “in a range of tasks such as crowd and riot control, special weapons and tactics (SWAT), and investigations of organized criminal groups” — both abroad, in UN-directed multilateral military operations, and at home, as dictated by the needs of the Regime.

Initially as small as 2–6,000 personnel, the SPFOR’s size “could be increased by augmenting it with additional federal, state, or local police from the United States” as necessary.

The RAND study, which was conducted for the U.S. Army’s Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, recommended using the Marshals Service rather than the US Army’s Military Police  as host for the SPFOR in order to avoid conflicts with the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids (albeit in principle more than in practice) the domestic use of the military as a law enforcement body.

“The USMS hybrid option … provides an important nondeployed mission for the force: augmenting state and local agencies, many of which currently suffer from severe personnel shortages,” states the report without explaining how the SPFOR could at once “augment” those under-manned agencies while at the same time being “augmented” by them if necessary.

That little lapse in logic is one of several indications that the report’s authors weren’t so much addressing a “problem” as making a case for a preordained “solution” — in this case, creating the vanguard of a militarized internal security force.

Building the SPFOR within the Marshals Service “would place it where its members can develop the needed skills under the hybrid staffing option,” summarizes the document. “Furthermore, the USMS has the broadest law enforcement mandate of any U.S. law enforcement agency…. [This model] provides significant domestic policing and homeland security benefits by providing thousands of additional police officers across the United States.” (Emphasis added.)

Back in 1961, the U.S. Government produced a document entitled “Freedom From War” that envisioned the creation of a globe-spanning United Nations “Peace Force” that would work in collaboration with a militarized “internal security” force in each country. Since that time, critics of the UN have anticipated the day when foreign “peacekeepers” would be assigned to police American streets and, if necessary, confiscate privately owned firearms.

While the monstrosity headquartered on the East River  is a proper target of our scorn and hostility, the new RAND study underscores the fact that if “peacekeepers” end up patrolling American streets, they probably won’t be foreigners in blue berets, but homegrown jackboots commanded by Washington.

(My thanks to Jack Slater for tipping me about the RAND report.)

    Its not too late to form a counter to this type of group. Get some names of their leadership and personell and basically do what they would do to you! This group is going to with the help of the media disarm the general public one at a time. They will lie about the people they are taking the guns from so that a large portion of americans will think its a terrorist or some person with mental health issues.. We have to be viligant and find creative ways of stopping them. If its possible we need to infiltrate such a group as well.
    Hey the Government infiltrates militas, teaparties and other citizen groups. The government needs to fear the people not the other way around.The fight we have with the forces of evil is not to be taken lightly. We must commit ourselves to do things we would not otherwise do. There is alot more that can be discussed about this but to do so would tip the hand of Patriots so these matters must be discussed in private and amongst only the most trusted patriots!

    Well, if it gets to the point where they really do this, life in the United States won’t be worth living anymore anyway. So bring it on… as the saying goes, it is better die on your feet, than live on your knees!!

    2,000 to 6,000 New Waffen SS to protect the Usurper might work. But If they think they can disarm America with so few, I think they will be sadly disappointed. But the Militias will get some fine new weapons and equipment.
