Consequence Management Response Force (CCMRF)

NORTHCOM just stationed the 3rd Airborn Division 3rd Brigade from Fort Stewart, GA here in the US (Caesar has just crossed the Rubicon). This unit is now designated Consequence Management Reaction Force (CCMRF or "C-Smurf"). The justification for assigning US Military to deploy within the US is due to the increasing threat of WMD: Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear and High-Yield Explosives (CBRNE). Traditionally, during natural disasters, State Governors would call up State National Guard to assist local and state Law Enforcement to assist in peacekeeping and disaster relief efforts.

But while CCMRF uses CBRNE as justification for their existence, CCMRF has been training to work with local law enforcement to respond to typical national disasters like hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes, and tornadoes in addition to or instead of the National Guard.

The justification for the consolidation of emergency management powers was due to the supposed expertise required to deal with WMD threats. However, by giving up the management of CRBRE to the US Military, CCMRF comes with some other problematic consequences. CCMRF bring their tanks, guns, kick-in-your door experience in Iraq, and Zero loyalty to the people. CCMRF has been trained to follow orders, regardless of whether it is gun confiscation, forced immunizations, and forced relocation. (The NRA has already sued the Federal Government over door-to-door gun confiscation during Katrina and the Greenburg, KS tornado).

While US Military occupation, law enforcement, and peacekeeping on US soil is in violation of the Pose Comitatus Act, I have heard many people in Georgia comment that if US military came for their guns, they would resist. And that is the problem right there. Is it just me or does anyone else see a potential problem here? US citizens are armed like never before, and US military are being trained and conditioned to kick down everyones door.
