If you were looking around recently and noticed that something seemed slightly different, it’s because we are now living in a ‘battlefield zone’. It might be hard to tell the difference, because there’s no bombs bursting all over the place, and there is a noticeable lack of ‘enemy troops’. However, our new zoning designation (residential, commercial, industrial, battlefield) allows the United States military to arrest and detain any citizen of this country residing in the country and hold them indefinitely without either charging them with a crime or granting them any constitutional rights at all. Now, you might be wondering why, after ten years of no attacks on American soil, do we need to pass legislation that allows the military to spirit away American citizens in the night to keep them forever in black site prisons across the world? Well, fortunately, the incredible vagueness of the legislation comes in handy here, as it gives them the power to arrest anyone who they can qualify as “a participant in the course of planning or carrying out an attack or attempted attack against the United States” which, if you ask all the innocent Arabs in Guantanamo Bay, does not require a lot of, or any, evidence. Personally, I can’t wait for the military to arrest the nationwide “occupation” movement, and then legally ship them to Eastern Europe to die in one of the many CIA controlled black sites over there, since we all know that’s exactly what’s coming.
