WASHINGTON, June 22 (UPI)-- The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies' Center for Emerging Threats and Opportunities will conduct a two-day strategy-policy war game on Wednesday and Thursday. The event will be the second in a series of war games called Project Lincolnia, which explores the tactical, operational, and strategic aspects of urban warfare. [red]Lincolnia II will examine weapons control issues in an urban environment,[/red] and will look at how nonlethal weapons and other new technologies might be used in humanitarian crises. [I](To disarm you)[/I] Developed by CETO -- a joint effort of the U.S. Marine Corps and PIPS dedicated to exploring innovative ways to deal with nontraditional threats to national security -- the Lincolnia series is a response to concerns raised in a 2000 GAO report that criticized the Department of Defense's approach to military operations in urban terrain (MOUT). The report found that DOD efforts are too focused on the tactical level, and have ignored strategic and operational concerns. The report also found shortfalls in intelligence collection and efforts in joint experimentation. The Lincolnia series is unique because the strategy and policy alternatives developed in next week's game will form the basis for subsequent games at the operational and tactical levels. The war game's scenario is set in the mythical nation of Nicolesia. The situation in the capital city of Lincolnia continues to deteriorate as three factions vie for control, while a U.S.-led UN multinational force attempts to preserve the factions' fragile cease-fire negotiated during Lincolnia I. As the cease-fire is implemented, it becomes evident that a weapons control process is needed to reduce civilian casualties, restore the cease-fire, and provide security for the humanitarian relief effort. The strategy-policy game will include political, military, economic, cultural and intelligence role players. A simulated interagency and coalition group will formulate policies, which will be presented to the cultural-role players for negotiation. Next week's game will be followed by an operational game and a tactical experiment involving Marines at Quantico, Va. Lincolnia II will conclude in the fall with an assessment conference that examines the recommendations and lessons learned. --

MY GOD ABN-RGR!!! Are you really so dim as to think that just because they didn't directly use the word "confiscation", that isn't what they are preparing for?? Here is an example. I'll go reeeeeeeeeeeel slow so you can keep pace. Gun confiscation bad [:(] Gun confiscation trouble for government [:(] Government need to get ready for it [:(] Government train for it [:)] Government not want to scare simpletons [:)] So government not use inflamatory words [:)] Simpletons not figure it out [?] [?] Simpletons happy [:)] Government happy [:)] Gun Owers Fucked [:(]
