Riots against the corrupt government in Kyrgyzstan have resulted in more than a hundred dead people. In Bishkek, the nation’s capitol, thousands of protesters stormed the main government building, set fire to the prosecutor’s office and looted state TV headquarters. Government officials were seriously beaten and reported killed.
“Demonstrators furious over government corruption and a recent hike in power prices looted the state television and radio building and were marching toward the Interior Ministry,” reports MSNBC. “Elite police opened fire to drive crowds back from government headquarters.”
In 2009, the bankster loan shark operation IMF warned the year would be “very difficult” for the Kyrgyz economy due to the global financial crisis. “Certainly, there is a risk of further deterioration of the situation,” the IMF statement said.
Since breaking away from the Soviet Union, Kyrgyzstan has fallen prey to the engineered trap of “external debt,” most of it owed to “commercial” banksters and the IMF and the World Bank. In 2009, the nation owed $3,467,000,000.
The situation is Kyrgyzstan follows riots in response to bankster austerity measures in Greece by a few weeks.
According to trends forecaster Gerald Celente, by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation and there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches.
In 2007, the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute reported that troops may be used if needed to quell protests and bank runs during an economic crisis.
“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” the War College study states.
In 2008, IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn warned that western nations could face civil unrest during an economic depression. “[S]ocial unrest may happen in many countries – including advanced economies” if the economic crises are not properly dealt with, Strauss-Kahn said.
Law enforcement agencies around the country have methodically prepared for this inevitability.
In response to the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute report, state and local police in Arizona told the Phoenix Business Journal they have broad plans to deal with social unrest, including trouble resulting from economic distress. “The Phoenix Police Department is not expecting any civil unrest at this time, but we always train to prepare for any civil unrest issue. We have a Tactical Response Unit that trains continually and has deployed on many occasions for any potential civil unrest issue,” Phoenix Police spokesman Andy Hill told the newspaper on December 17, 2008.
In 2008, Arizona police coordinated training with the Department of Homeland Security and the Pentagon’s Northern Command.
In February, police in Louisiana’s Bossier Parish trained for an “end of the world” scenario straight out of the Book of Exodus in the Bible. Cops plan to use volunteers, supplemented with active public safety personnel, that will be dispatched to vital areas in the parish to protect them from looters and rioters, including grocery stores, gas stations, hospitals and other public meeting places. Police volunteers will have access to a .50-caliber machine gun to put down looters and rioters.
Northern Command is specifically tasked with implementing martial law under Continuity of Government. The Military Commissions Act of 2006 voided restrictions placed on the military to support civilian administration by the Posse Comitatus Act, the latter restricting the military from working with local law enforcement. In addition to the Military Commissions Act of 2006, a 1994 U.S. Defense Department Directive (DODD 3025) allows military commanders to take emergency actions in domestic situations.
Is it possible riots on the scale now occurring Kyrgyzstan will happen in the United States and Western Europe? The average wage in Kyrgyzstan is only a few hundred dollars a year, but as Celente and others note our standard of living is on the slippery slope toward the third world cesspool of poverty and misery.
Former Fed boss Paul Volcker said yesterday the government is determined to impose crippling VAT and carbon taxes and accelerate the process now underway.
There is one crucial difference between the United States and Kyrgyzstan — there are millions of firearms in this country.
That’s why the government and the corporate media are now engaged in a furious propaganda campaign against militias, the patriot movement, the constitutional Tea Party movement and is attempting to undermine the Second Amendment.
Not if but when violence erupts in the streets of America in response to the engineered unraveling of the economy, the violence will be far worse than anything we are seeing in Kyrgyzstan.
The clock is running. We have a small window of opportunity to shut down the greatest economic crime in recorded history perpetuated by a cartel of offshore bankers and their minions.
Short of stopping them in their tracks, the future, as Celente warns, indeed looks bleak.
