Il ne s'agit pas seulement de sécuriser le pays : l'armée américaine commande des équipements anti-émeutes Traduit par Dominique Muselet Il ne s'agit plus seulement d'espionner les citoyens étasuniens avec des drones de surveillance : l'armée des Etats-Unis est en train de se procurer tout un arsenal anti-émeutes au cas où les militaires seraient obligés d'aller combattre au corps à corps les civils étasuniens sur leur propre sol. Une demande d'armes postée dans la rubrique des transactions commerciales fédérales du site officiel du gouvernement a révélé que l'armée étasunienne recherchait sur le marché des équipements qui ne causent pas la mort pour les utiliser vraisemblablement à l'intérieur des Etats-Unis. Dans un autre post au début de l'été, l'armée a fait un appel d'offre pour des boucliers anti-émeutes, des masques, des bâtons en polycarbonate et des armures.
Depuis la mort d’un homme dans la banlieue sud de Los Angeles, le 21 Juillet 2012, les manifestations se multiplient et désormais, la “Police” militarisée (ou devrait-on dire l’Armée) encadre les manifestants avec des tenues de camouflage, des tenues anti-émeutes et les armes qui vont avec. Des tenues utilisées dans les zones de combats, comme en Irak ou en Afghanistan. Le journal du siècle WordPress:

Monday, July 19, 2010; 4:50 PM The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work. These are some of the findings of a two-year investigation by The Washington Post that discovered what amounts to an alternative geography of the United States, a Top Secret America hidden from public view and lacking in thorough oversight. After nine years of unprecedented spending and growth, the result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to determine. The investigation's other findings include:
Back in 1996, a group of leading neoconservatives led by Richard Perle drafted a memorandum for then (as now) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, recommending that Israel adopt a more aggressive and assertive policy towards its neighbors. They called it a "Clean Break" to suggest that it would be a major shift in policy. Today, as American foreign policy looks more like a shipwreck than a victory lap, there is perhaps a need for a Clean Break by Washington. As the relationship with Tel Aviv has an impact far beyond Israel’s size and importance it should, ironically, be the first element in the foreign policy disaster that is examined. Many Americans who indulge in the mainstream media believe that Israel is a close friend and ally to the United States and that when it is criticized the complaints are often unfair and might even in some cases be motivated by anti-Semitism.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — As Sarah Palin delivered a weekend address here , paying tribute to Ronald Reagan on the centennial of his birth, she directed a forceful line of criticism at President Obama and his administration, though she did not mention the crisis in Egypt. But in a subsequent television interview, she took Mr. Obama to task for his handling of the matter. “It’s a difficult situation,” Ms. Palin told the Christian Broadcasting Network.
Just two weeks ago, as former US President George W. Bush was preparing to make his first visit to Europe since the publication, last November, of his biography Decision Points , the Center for Constitutional Rights in New York, and the Berlin-based European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights, with support from the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), reminded the former President that he was a torturer — who, in addition, had openly bragged in his book that he had authorized the torture of “high-value detainees” in the “War on Terror” — and that, as a result, they would be filing a criminal complaint (an “indictment for torture”) in Switzerland, prior to the former President’s arrival for a meeting on February 12. According to the requirements of the UN Convention Against Torture (to which both the US and Switzerland are signatories), this might well have led to his arrest. As I explained in a recent article, George W.
The White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs US: Iran scared of the will of its people The United States pivoted from delight at Egypt’s revolt to hiking political pressure on arch-foe Iran Friday, charging that the leadership in Tehran was 'scared of the will of its people.' The White House said that Iranian leaders should give their people the same chance to express their will as Egyptians seized for themselves -- and noted that instead, Tehran had threatened to kill any protesters.
