From warfighters to intimidatory policing units!
Will these new civilian-control shock troops be used stateside someday? I just love USMC's spox's Orwellian phraseology that these weird units
"are very comfortable with the escalation of force."

There is an urban warfare center on Ft Knox that looks more like the typical small town U.S.A. than some street in Kabul. I had a friend who was the director of the center and told me that S.E.A.L.s, Marines as well as Army/Air Force special forces train their all the time. He also told me (I kept my mouth shut) that the members of a nearby civilian gun range had accused him of training against American Civilians. He called them "nuts". Ironically he had an arsenal of automatic weapons in his home including riot shotguns and M-4's. He never confirmed or denied they were training against us.
Those of you in the Kentuckyanna area know the gun range I speak of. It holds and annual machine gun shoot.
