I don't want to shoot or kill people...

I meant, running these scenarios is a good thing to learn about things 
before they run out of hand.

Reading the analysis, I got the impression that the military 
intelligence has gotten in the situation where the fears of unrest 
become bigger every year but they choose to create a army division to 
fight the unrest. But that doesn't take away the cause of unrest, 
leading to a vicious circle. That I find unwise.

Imagine what can be done with a small portion of the US-army budget 
towards environmental research, energy efficiency, water management to 
avoid flood disasters. We could have had affordable holiday trips to the 
moon if we didn't waste the money on surveillance and attempts to 

To avert problems by creating solutions, that earns my respect.

I'd better stay out of politics....

Apologies for my wrong choice of words.
