British Army Exercise to Put Down Insurrection
January 30, 2012
On Saturday, The Telegraph carried an article explaining how hundreds of soldiers from the third battalion of the Parachute Regiment are learning how to put down insurrection. So-called “public order training” will be critical during Britain’s upcoming version of panem et circenses – the 2012 Olympics – as the Greatest Depression deepens.
The Telegraph points out that the brutal tactics used by the British Army in Northern Ireland “have been lost” following the 2007 decision to pull back from Ulster. British troops were sent to Derry in 1969 not to keep the peace, but to put down an insurrection after Irish police invaded Catholic areas of the city and imposed a curfew, sealed off Lower Falls, and began shooting unarmed civilians. The violence culminated in Bloody Sunday on January 30, 1972, when 26 unarmed civil-rights protesters and bystanders were shot by soldiers.
Now the “Troubles” have reached Britain, thanks to the global engineered economic implosion currently underway.
According to The Telegraph, during the British Army “training package” held in Kent, soldiers were taught how to use body-length riot shields, protect themselves from missiles and how to identify and arrest “ring leaders’ using specially trained “snatch squads.”
The Greater Manchester Police used “snatch squads” during the 2011 riots. The tactic was pioneered during the anti-globalist demonstrations in Seattle (in this photograph, we see cops snatching a dangerous photographer). During the G20 in Pittsburgh, the military worked with cops and used “snatch and grab” units to kidnap activists. The tactic was also used in Toronto during the G20.
