Law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the United States and abroad are preparing to go on high alert as part of a massive terrorism prevention exercise -- the first of its kind here.
The National Level Exercise 2009 "will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery," the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said in a statement.
This is simply for domestic consumption, to demonstrate to We the People that we shouldn't get "uppity" if there are any National issues which concern us, because there will be hell to pay.
And that bit about "terrorism prevention"?!?! There's a really simple answer to that; if the US stops mucking about in other countries, there will be no reason for any of those people to get upset with the US!
Of course, that would be logical.
