on this thread someone asked why the army would ever be deployed nowadays.
my answer was, large scale civil unrest... perhaps this is most likely to occur when attacks on the working class become more and more explicit. specfically, i think it might be cyber based attacks. but why might that happen? in what sort of scenario would the cameron etc. have any interest in disabling the nation, or whatever?
edit sorry if this is crazy / annoying, it's just a nasent idea of mine :)
