As the country continues to bumble down the road of destruction, the government has willingly and maliciously been planning on how to respond to a civil uprising. It seems that now even the UN is advertising to fill Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration specialists positions here in the United States.
Reports out of Texas have recently revealed that armored UN “peace keeping” vehicles have made their way down south and stand at the ready for the call to action. Given that America is just about fed up with the current administrations antics, it seems only a matter of time before a revolution may be sparked.
Be that as it may, the government should not be looked upon as a weak or incompetent force easily reckoned with as their resources far outweigh that of the American people. Besides that, it appears they’ve already begun preparations for such an event as a recent description in which the UN is advertising for jobs reads:
Posting Title: Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Officer, P4
Job Code Title: DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION AND REINTEGRATION OFFICER
Department/ Office: Department of Peacekeeping Operations

Think this could all just be a matter of interpretation? Here’s the job descriptions they give for the positions that are sure to send a chill down your spine:
Disarmament is the collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons from combatants and often from the civilian population.
Demobilization is the formal and controlled discharge of active combatants from armed forces and groups, including a phase of “reinsertion” which provides short-term assistance to ex-combatants.
Reintegration is the process by which ex-combatants acquire civilian status and gain sustainable employment and income. It is a political, social and economic process with an open time-frame, primarily taking place in communities at the local level.
The objective of the DDR process is to contribute to security and stability in post-conflict environments so that recovery and development can begin. DDR helps create an enabling environment for political and peace processes by dealing with security problem that arises when ex-combatants are trying to adjust to normal life, during the vital transition period from conflict to peace and development.
