Re: British Army closes bases over Christmas! Soldiers told to 'work from home'! 2012 doom?
Not sure about this link as it is a paid-for site (The Sunday Times) - [link to www.thesundaytimes.co.uk]

But the intro (sticking to forum fair-use percentage rules) says

"THE British Army has been ordered to take an extended 25-day Christmas holiday or “work from home” in an attempt to cut its gas and electricity bills.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20393570


Occam's Razor says that the simplest solution (or answer) is usually the right one... so, the British Army is offering extended leave to save money.

Let's face it, the UK are beyond broke, and they're desperate to save any money any way they can.

If the British military were preparing for war or some other serious, large-scale event, their bases would be absolutely alive with activity, and most, if not all leaves would be cancelled.

If there was also a realistic prospect that the UK would be attacked with nuclear weapons or even invaded, troops would be ordered to report for duty, *all* leaves would be cancelled, initial orders would be given, and then orders to disperse troops and materiel would be given.

In fact, the movement of troops and equipment off bases would be impossible to hide or ignore because the scale of activity would simply be massive.

As to the Russians moving two combat brigades to the Norwegian border, this is likely just a routine rotation of troops.

No doom here.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28750606




although the wickedly-witted brit, Winston Churchill, stated: "nothing in politics or war is unplanned"

i don't know if this applies, maybe i was too eager to join the conversation, but this report and dispersal seems uncanny, at least.

Guerrilla Warfare, maybe they do know something is coming a force in which you cant take head on.

So they deploy there forces in with the general public, if and when invaded your trained troops can not only evade but train and recruit civy's. And strike an enemy who is over extending it's self now that it has to occupy.

This tactic would be much more effective than massive military strikes against a superior fighting force. You have or will have lost very few personal in the intial attack.

Or there just broke as hell.

Check back. See if this has been done before.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25503089


Apparently not "Richard Kemp, a former commander of UK ground forces in Afghanistan, said he had never come across anything similar in 25 years of military service."

Anyone who has holidays (vacation) left to take has to take them, but anyone who has no holidays is being told to 'work from home'. How exactly? Set up an assault course in their back gardens?

It applies to all military and civilian staff in the land forces as well as the Royal Navy and the RAF.

Crazy.

To me, this indicates a shift in the Earths crust, think about it.
The Brits will have their military evenly distributed in the community, some of the best trained people to have around if something amazing happened ?
And they will not be on the payroll but using their skills to do the best for their families and adding positive input to local communities, regardless of what country they happen to be stationed in, the military's of the world carry a cornucopia of skilled people, often in fields far removed from just blowing people up ?
Engineers, Electronics experts, Electricians, Machinists,Organizational skills,and a million other professions.
If you had a Military and were expecting an epic Earth shift you might want to have your assets spread out because if they,"a Regiment,Battalion , Brigade or what ever, you would want to keep them spread out if you did not fully understand what the THREAT was ? so they can not all get wiped out in mass numbers. Don't keep all your eggs in one basket!
If the Russians thought that the Arctic circle was going to be in a warmer place soon they may consider troop movements to protect whatever they consider to be their property/land/assets.
If the Arctic circle end's up being where England is and England ends up shifting south to where North Africa is,much would change, The Arctic circle is packed with oil/gold/who knows.And Antarctica would defrost and move North, to where the Indian Ocean is now?
Wow!
Clearly, billions would die.
It is a scientific fact that the Earth will pass through the
Equatorial plane of our Galaxy on 12-21-2012, how did the Mayans know that specific date ? Impossible.
Earthquakes and Tidal waves and disruptions in the Earths protective Atmosphere would be inevitable.
Get some extra supplies in, the SHTF,perhaps on 12-21-2012 ?

Amazing.

And you have the cheek to call it respectfull. You are such a brain washed laugh.

And on one more note while we are at it, assuming the paper is telling us the actual truth (which would be very very rare). About the fact that militery does not have enough funds and they are indeed on a quest to cut down millions from their bills.
Don't you think in the light of current economical situation it is more likely that army is actually trying to cut costs?
Do you have to be so childish as to read end of the world in every single piece of so called news?
Are you perhaps tired of your life and hate yourself so much with nowhere to escape that you wish the world to end and hence grap on to any shit to prove your dissability to handel life.

There is also a thread on here about the Russians moving two combat brigades to the Norwegian border - the same area the famous 'Norwegian Spiral' was seen in the sky not so long ago.

If something really is going down then there should be evidence from other countries about subtle preparations and unusual leaves etc. Any Europeans got any info (I tend to give European stories more weight because Americans are always shouting about 'unusual troop movements')?

Has anyone else noticed how as we get closer to the much anticipated date some people seem to be reacting with denial? There seem to be a lot of people now who are really trying to talk down the possibility of anything happening - completely ignoring the masses of evidence.

I'm not saying that the world will 'end'. I don't believe anything points to that. But can anyone who has seriously studied history not have at least a nagging suspicion that something is important about the end of 2012?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23992770


Call it denial if you want but makes no sense to me to believe that our current calendar can in any way be believed to coordinate exactly with the Mayan calendar. The Mayans were astronomy experts and had a long history of making observations and keeping a calendar, probably learned from their ancient ancestors who kept accurate records for thousands of years.
Our current civilization's calendar on the other hand has been through many changes and religious tinkering and is probably very inaccurate astronomically.
The Mayans were likely predicting or calculating an astronomical cycle or event. Our calendar is probably years off from correlating with that same cycle or event. Just because we call this date 12/21/12 does not mean the Mayans would call it the same date if they were still around.

Re: British Army closes bases over Christmas! Soldiers told to 'work from home'! 2012 doom?
I believe this decision is linked to the elections for Police & crime commisioners that have taken place across the UK recently.
There are now 41 commisioners that are all party hacks (Conservative, Labour etc) each one of these commisioners have the authority to fire or employ a Chief Constable for their area.
Before there were local committees.

If all these servicemen have gone home, and then an emergency occurs, individual servicemen will be told (ordered) to report to local police stations for duty.
They won't go back to their military units.
They will come under the command of the police authority - this will be accepted due to the seriousness of the 'emergency situation'.
The British Army/Royal Marines will cease to exist as a viable fighting entity in the UK.

These soldiers will have to take their new orders from a new authority, controlled by the police, which in turn is controlled by the new commissioners, who take their orders from top party bigwigs, who in turn are controlled by the secret societies/Rothschild Central Banking chumps.

So in effect.....our military has been simply neutered, and at the same time made into a new security force, which will have a bolstered, strengthened set of individuals join their ranks.
And being obedient toy soldiers they will obey the government of the day. (no matter how skewed it is)

Very crafty people these secret society types.

If you had a Military and were expecting an epic Earth shift you might want to have your assets spread out because if they,"a Regiment,Battalion , Brigade or what ever, you would want to keep them spread out if you did not fully understand what the THREAT was ? so they can not all get wiped out in mass numbers. Don't keep all your eggs in one basket!
If the Russians thought that the Arctic circle was going to be in a warmer place soon they may consider troop movements to protect whatever they consider to be their property/land/assets.
If the Arctic circle end's up being where England is and England ends up shifting south to where North Africa is,much would change, The Arctic circle is packed with oil/gold/who knows.And Antarctica would defrost and move North, to where the Indian Ocean is now?
Wow!
Clearly, billions would die.
It is a scientific fact that the Earth will pass through the
Equatorial plane of our Galaxy on 12-21-2012, how did the Mayans know that specific date ? Impossible.
Earthquakes and Tidal waves and disruptions in the Earths protective Atmosphere would be inevitable.
Get some extra supplies in, the SHTF,perhaps on 12-21-2012 ?
May you be blessed to live in dull times,but I don't think so.

Very well said but based on current pace of happenings I believe everybody will wake up on the 22nd and start posting on GLP seeking a new doom date, then move on to do last minute holiday shopping etc

Re: British Army closes bases over Christmas! Soldiers told to 'work from home'! 2012 doom?
Not sure about this link as it is a paid-for site (The Sunday Times) - [link to www.thesundaytimes.co.uk]

But the intro (sticking to forum fair-use percentage rules) says

"THE British Army has been ordered to take an extended 25-day Christmas holiday or “work from home” in an attempt to cut its gas and electricity bills.

In a move that former military commanders say is unprecedented, a leaked memo from a general says all military and civilian personnel in land forces — amounting to 110,000 men and women — are to take “block leave” for 25 days from December 14 until January 7.

The decision means all army barracks, Territorial Army buildings and other military sites in Britain will close for almost four weeks to provide “an opportunity for utility savings”."


This apples not just to the UK but Germany, Nepal and Brunei, Canada, Belize and Kenya.

So basically all British troops (at least in the UK) will be stationed at their homes around the country for December 2012.

Is this really a cost cutting measure? Or a way to get well-trained troops positioned around the UK without causing panic in preparation for something?

Very strange... Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but my first thought after reading this post was of a thread I came across recently....

Thread: Obama in Hawaii as Nation Goes Over the Cliff

From the above link:

"According to the Hawaii Reporter, residents who live in the area of Oahu where Obama and his family vacation have been told that the usual restrictions on their movements during an Obama stay will be in place for 21 days, from December 17 through January 6."


ETA: For quick reference, the OP from this thread states: "...all military and civilian personnel in land forces ... are to take “block leave” for 25 days from December 14 until January 7."
