Note: This is Part 1 of a two-part column.
The Development and Execution of Joint Operations (both civilian and military) to respond to dynamic threats against the United States has now reached a point of criticality. Over the course of the last several years, some Americans are gradually waking up to the fact that our “essence of being” as a nation and as individuals is under a constant state of attack, and this attack has been implemented methodically and slowly over time by enemies who despise our way of life. What is occurring to the great country is so heinous that it patronizes each one of us, who we are, our heritage and what we stand for as a nation.
During World War II, America, The Sleeping Giant, as quoted by Japanese Adm. Yamamoto, woke up; and The Greatest Generation, as noted by Tom Brokaw, stood up and went off to fight “The Total Collective Effort of Evil” in their time.
Evil has many forms, and simply stated, it is a word to describe the acts of omission or acts of commission to inflict wanton harm or destruction or, according to Wiktionary, a deliberate violation of some accepted moral code of behavior, i.e. a fiduciary obligation. Evil, as defined by The Free Dictionary, is that which causes harm, misfortune or destruction: as in a leader’s power to do both good and/or evil. In the 1940s, Americans responded by waging “total war” against evil perpetrated by German Nazism and Japanese Militaristic Imperialism, in which the goals were to subjugate free people and farm resources under a new order of fascism.
The numbers alone reflect the concentrated, focused effort by Americans: 16,596,639 served; 416,837 were killed or missing; and over 683,846 were wounded. For me, the only way to adequately explain this focused and united American effort is to quote Edmund Burke: All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. This quote by Burke, an Irish philosopher, captures “the American essence of being” for all our generations, throughout our American history, except maybe for one … the current one.
Right now, we are living in confusing and turbulent times in which the safety and security of our country is at risk. The critical event of the sabotage that occurred on 9/11 is one of many in a timeline of numerous acts of sabotage and terror by people who want to change our way of life and subjugate our citizens to their way of “order and control.” War and sabotage have been utilized as tools throughout history to effect change and to subjugate people.
Our current operating environment is one in which our critical infrastructure and citizenry have been severely weakened due to entangling alliances, which our first American president, George Washington, specifically warned against – deceptive and defective policies enacted by negligent congressional representation, and the so-called “business practices” of corporate America and Wall Street.
The citizens of America now find themselves in a borderless environment, in more ways than one, an unsafe environment down to the household level, and being “directed” by a bureaucratic entity that has evolved into something that is nothing more than just another “enterprise” that serves itself rather than the citizens that fund it. Current events reported in the news clearly show that our critical infrastructure has been severely compromised. These events, combined with the extensive loss of jobs, homes, retirement savings and the mortgaging of our future to foreign entities, have developed into a “perfect storm” of new potential threats that can be implemented and coordinated in multiple stages to take away what is left of our American identity.
We now know how we got here, and the situational environment for the United States of America is not good. Our critical infrastructure sectors have been compromised and weakened, our borders are wide open, narcoterrorism is on the rise, and law enforcement and emergency services resources are stretched thin and are impacted from curtailed funding. Furthermore, our military is stretched thin around the world. All of our enemies are aware of this and are lining up – and have been for a very long time – as the noose tightens and our options from being held hostage are consistently being reduced due to lack of commitment to the American way of life by the elitists in Washington.
It is time for us to prioritize our threats from within our own borders and at our southern border and implement flexible strategies for preparation, response, and mitigation and annihilation of threats. Based on the lack of action demonstrated by the federal government in securing our borders and allowing the drug cartels to have open highways into our country, and inadequate response to disasters such as the BP Oil incident, we believe that it is time for our military, or retired military, to assist as special advisers to train up each state’s national guard, state Defense Force, and public safety and emergency response personnel so that each state can immediately engage a well-coordinated response to any threat or critical event.
We must know our enemy and be aware that they have implemented this approach themselves as they have hired mercenaries, implemented political factions and even sent members to serve in the military to acquire special-operations training. State and local resources need to be trained in specialized counter-insurgency techniques that can adapt and complement law-enforcement investigations such as in the area of Situational Awareness Methodologies and in Command and Control of critical events. Col. John Vann, one of the early counter-insurgency experts, once stated in a briefing after the Tet Offensive, “It’s about the rice.” As far as our southern border is concerned, it’s about the drugs.
Narco-terrorism is linked as a tool for our enemies to assist in destroying us from within as part of the master plan to destroy the American way of life. Also, terrorists have numerous options for low-level operations from within our own borders. Due to our open borders, the risk is extremely high for numerous events to take place to overwhelm our resources and system much like what has already been done to our critical infrastructure and fabric.
We also must be aware that our enemies have a new economic blueprint for America: giving away our resources. It is about energy and our property, both physical and intellectual. Also, there will be a new code of law to be utilized to supervise and administer our new non-American world. It is about the United Nations, not the united states of The United States of America. We must counter each tactical goal and disrupt and demolish the master plan – The New Total Collective Effort of Evil that has been perpetrated against us over a long period of time.â€¨â€¨
So, what do we do from here?
Have a plan for “Total National Security and the Preservation and Protection of our American Identity based on the Safety First Doctrine of World War II.”
