Police State Update: NATO 'invades' Tampa, Florida to the cheers of the willfully ignorant
Special Forces from 96 countries focused on "Building the Global SOF Partnership" at a conference in Tampa, Florida. The multinational cooperation of NATO Special Operations Forces serves as a good example for such a global Special Forces network.
The oligarch's whip-hand at the ready to ensure your compliance as they strip away the American social compact bit by methodically-extracted bit.

4. Because it's logical. They are paid to protect them very, very well.
Nothing new, just more open about it. Note how the phrase about the many foreign countries was repeated. Landing in a city near you. Guess the word hasn't gotten down to some of the folks that always support invading other countries, that 'what goes around, comes around' to bite people in the tail. We made this and we own it. Now we get to see how it feels up close. We'll get used to it, find our place in the hierarchy. I don't think Americans ever had a culture that wasn't endlessly advertised for them to buy. The purchase order on this was signed many years ago. Sigh.

5. not to put to fine a point on it ...
not to put to fine a point on it but methinks DU has been punk'd
this was an 'industry conference', no different than the Paris Air Show or any of the other hundred other industry conferences dealing with space, arms, science or politics
think it as TED with guns !
of course the YouTube video is making the rounds on every right-wing reactionary web site as further proof of their 'Black Helicopter' conspiracy theory but if you bother to swing by the conference website you'll find its no different than any other industry conference
yes it is about Special Forces Operations, no they are not plotting to take your guns

(You don't have to be a crazy RW'er to be concerned about their SOP and Objectives)
Building the Global SOF Partnership
The International Special Operation Forces (ISOF) 2012 conference will be the platform where the USSOCOM Commander unveils his international engagement strategy of "Building the Global SOF Partnership."
The conference objective will be that U.S. and International SOF leaders recognize USSOCOM as a Global Command and gain a better understanding on how to become active partners in that network. This conference (ISOF) occurs simultaneously with the SOF Industrial Conference (SOFIC) which SORDAC in conjunction with National Defense Industry Association sponsor.
ISOF Vision 2012
U.S. Special Operations Command hosts the International Special Operation Forces (ISOF) conference from 21-25 May 2012 in downtown Tampa. This will be the platform where the USSOCOM Commander lays out his vision for the Global SOF Partnership. Invited attendees include Special Operations Forces (SOF) Commanders and Senior Enlisted Advisors from ninety-six countries, as well as the senior leadership of USSOCOM and its Component and Theater Special Operational Commands (TSOC). Additionally, there will be senior leaders from across the whole of the United States Government and the international community. As testament to the potential of International SOF cooperation, the conference will host the first ever live capabilities demonstration of multinational forces held in a major city. SOF operators are from: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Jordan, Norway, Poland, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates.
Building the Global SOF Partnership
ISOF's theme is "Building the Global SOF Partnership." This is composed of mutually supporting partners working to identify and preemptively address problems, and helping to defeat the appeal of violent extremism. In Tampa, International SOF leaders will come together, frame current and emergent threats to regional security, share their experiences in addressing those threats, and discuss how best to build that partnership. The conference will run from Monday, 21 May through Friday, 25 May 2012. Attendees will arrive from the 20th to the 21st of May and will depart from the evening of the 24th through the 25th of May. Each day from the 22nd to 24th May will focus on: "Framing the Problem," "Finding Solutions," and "Building for the Future" respectively as detailed below.
Framing the Problem (Tuesday, 22 May 2012)
Introductory remarks and overview of the Global SOF Partnership by Admiral William H. McRaven
Overview of NATO SOF Headquarters (NSHQ) establishment by Lieutenant General Frank J. Kisner
Statesmen and academic panel discuss implications of "Interconnected Strategic Environment"
Finding Solutions (Wednesday, 23 May 2012)
Panel of SOF Commanders share experiences from real-world operations
TSOC Commanders host breakout discussions among the SOF Commanders of their regions
Building for the Future (Thursday, 24 May 2012)
Commanders' Round Table provides command perspective in establishing the Global SOF Partnership
Shifting from Talk to Action panel incorporates breakout session input for further engagement
Commander's Closing remarks end official conference, encouraging further engagement among partners
At the conference's conclusion, International SOF leaders will return to their respective countries with:
An understanding of the Global SOF Partnership and how their country can best fit into that partnership
A declaration of a shared "ISOF Vision"
An agreement to seek further engagement
The SOFIC conference promises to provide a forum for collaboration and positive, proactive networking between stakeholders from national and international industry, academia, professional organizations, and government agencies as we continue to build key global partnerships that support the special operations enterprise.
Breakout sessions by USSOCOM acquisition Program Executive Officers, Program Managers, and Science and Technology Managers will explore target issues in current and future acquisition programs. The breakout sessions will identify USSOCOMís top priorities, technology game changers, key enablers, business opportunities, and interests as they relate to current, planned, and future acquisition programs.
In addition to the general and breakout sessions, business opportunities sessions will be conducted with USSOCOMís Office of Small Business Programs, Technology Industry Liaison Office, and other acquisition experts, addressing requirements and opportunities for our industry partners supporting SOF. Attendees will be provided an opportunity to establish key partnerships, gain insight, and hear first hand from acquisition leaders about current USSOCOM and DoD changes and priorities.
