U.S. Troops Asked If They Would Shoot American Citizens

U.S. troops are being trained to conduct round-ups, confiscate guns and shoot 
American citizens, including their own friends and family members, as part of a 
long-standing program to prepare for the declaration of martial law, according 
to a soldier who recently returned from Iraq.

We received an e mail from "Scott", a member of a pipefitters union that runs an
apprenticeship program called Helmets To Hard Hats, which according to its 
website, "Is a national program that connects National Guard, Reserve and 
transitioning active-duty military members with quality career training and 
employment opportunities within the construction industry."

Scott writes that his company hired a soldier who had recently returned from 
Iraq, who told him that U.S. troops were being quizzed on whether or not they 
would be prepared to shoot their own friends and family members during a 
national state of emergency in America.

"I have become very close to this young man and have gained his respect and 
trust," writes Scott. "I want you to know that he informed me about one 
particular training exercise his superiors made them perform. It was concerning 
the rounding up of American citizens that disobey any type of martial law or in 
other words any type of infringement on our freedoms."

"He was asked if he could shoot his friends or family members if ordered to do 
so. At the time he said he could," writes Scott.

Scott says that the soldier later "had time to clear his head" and realize the 
truth, recanting his vow to kill his own countrymen if ordered to do so.

The issue of whether U.S. troops would be prepared to round-up, disarm and if 
necessary shoot Americans who disobeyed orders during a state of martial law is 
a question that military chiefs have been attempting to answer for at least 15 

Its known origins can be traced back to an October 1994 Marine questionnaire out
of the Twentynine Palms Marine Base in California. Recruits were asked 46 
questions, including whether they would kill U.S. citizens who refused to 
surrender their firearms.

Documentary film maker Alex Jones brought to light similar training programs 
that were taking place across the country in the late 90's which revolved around
U.S. Marines being trained to arrest American citizens and take them to 
internment camps.

During one such program in Oakland California, dubbed "Operation Urban Warrior,"
Marines refused to answer if they would target American citizens for gun 
confiscation if ordered to do so.

During hurricane Katrina, National Guard units were ordered to confiscate guns 
belonging to New Orleans residents.

As we first exposed in May 2006, Clergy Response Teams are being trained by the 
federal government and FEMA to "quell dissent" and pacify citizens to obey the 
government in the event of a declaration of martial law.

Pastors and other religious representatives are being taught to become secret 
police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey the government" in 
preparation for the implementation of martial law, property and firearm 
seizures, mass vaccination programs and forced relocation.

Many scoffed at our original story, which was based on the testimony of a 
whistleblower who was asked to participate in the program. Claims that the story
was a conspiracy theory soon evaporated when a mainstream KSLA news report 
confirmed the existence of the program.

The experiences of U.S. troops in the worst areas of Iraq, where soldiers are 
ordered to go door to door and arrest all men of military age as well as 
confiscate their weapons, is a mere portend of what is being planned for America
if these training programs ever come to fruition.
