Notwithstanding the Posse Comitatus Act, the American ruling class have always had the power of the US military -- not just state militias but also federal troops -- at their disposal and frequently used it for domestic repression, crushing workers' strikes and uprisings: "Although the rate of [internal military] intervention has varied from year to year and the targets of interventions have shifted from industrial workers to urban rioters, the overall rates of intervention have remained near the average during the years [1886-95, 1921-35, and 1943-90]: about 18 interventions and 12,000 troops per year" (emphasis added, David Adams, "Internal Military Interventions in the United States," Journal of Peace Research 32.2, 1995).
Given the history of internal military interventions against rebellious American workers, JCS CONPLAN 0300-97 revealed by William M. Arkin is especially chilling:
