US plans for militarisation of megacities

Scene from Megacities, a movie by the US Army

US Army video warns that war in the megacity will be very messy

The Pentagon is preparing US police and armed forces for a brutal and anarchic future in which the apparatus of the state is in locked in constant battle with the people.

This is the premise of a 2014 video made by the US Army called Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity currently being shown at the Pentagon Joint Special Operations University.

The five minute movie encourages various armed forces to prepare sophisticated military responses against hundreds of thousands of disposessed citizens.

Author Mike Davis describes the movie is a military fantasy. “It’s absurd to think that special ops can be used to control a mega-city,” he told web publisher, The Intercept.

That’s the scenario outlined in “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity,” a five-minute video that has been used at the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations University.
