An ominous shadow looms across America. The safety of every American is in peril. We watch our televisions at night as our leaders try to prevent international war, yet a more imminent danger lurks much closer to home the private militia. In just a few years, groups of armed citizens have mushroomed across the country, uniting together around a common cause hatred of the government using propaganda, threats, and especially violence to further their objective. Trumpeting Waco and Ruby Ridge as their rallying cry, and anti-government rhetoric to mobilize supporters, these domestic terrorists threaten the security of every American.In this eye-opening look at the militia movement, Captain Robert L. Snow, a seasoned police officer and acclaimed author of STOPPING A STALKER, provides a chilling portrayal of the turmoil brewing across the nation, in cities and rural areas alike. As a cop he takes us behind the scenes where no one else can. Captain Snow paints a detailed portrait of what many believe to be the stereotypical militiaman a disgruntled white, lower-class male, perhaps unemployed and dissatisfied with his lot in life, who blames the government for all his problems. Most shocking is when Snow exposes the truth behind who really belongs to these militias and serves as their leaders everyone from high-ranking police officials to representatives from Congress! Finding camaraderie in numbers, militia members form tight-knit groups to thwart infiltrators and informants. We discover their adamant belief in conspiracy theories, their ill-conceived motives, and their paranoia. We investigate their extreme training tactics, use of illegal weapons, and survivalist credo.Leading us down the aisles at legal gun shows, Captain Snow reveals the astounding numbers and types of weapons easily available to the public. Moreover, we learn that, fearing a takeover by the New World Order a supposed United Nations-led army conspiring with the U.S. military militiamen are holing up in hidden shelters and compounds, stockpiling food and arms in preparation for the invasion.” Certain that unmarked black helicopters patrol hidden enclaves and scour U.S. soil for militia activity, many militias and smaller cell groups similar to Timothy McVeigh and his compatriots have become openly aggressive against their perceived enemy, targeting federal buildings and well-trafficked sites.A newly propagated phenomenon of the past decade, the rise of the militia movement is poised to wreak havoc across the American landscape. FBI stand-offs, shoot-outs, collapsing buildings, and other images of death and destruction have already begun.
