Azerbaijan, Baku, May 18 / Trend (http://www.trend.az/) M.Aliyev /
Given the constant risk of natural and manmade disasters, the NATO member-countries and partners should work together to strengthen mechanisms of the international assistance, Azerbaijani Emergency Situations Minister Kamaladdin Heydarov (http://en.trend.az/search/?str=Kamaladdin%2BHeydarov&m=a) said at the plenary meeting of the NATO (http://en.trend.az/search/?str=NATO&m=a) Senior Civil Emergency Planning in Baku today.
“Hence, Azerbaijan is ready to provide additional assistance to NATO in emergency planning,” Heydarov said.” Mutual success will be the result of our cooperation.”
He said this cooperation will enable the Azerbaijani people to contribute to international aid at the right time and right place.
Baku hosts the plenary meeting of the Senior Civil Emergency Planning Committee within the NATO Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council. The Azerbaijani Emergency Situations Ministry is the organizer of the event.
Civil emergency planning system has been completely reorganized in Azerbaijan over the years, Heydarov said.
Heydarov said this cooperation is a very important step that will allow to hold joint exercises on civil emergency planning. “These exercises strengthen the practical skills and create the conditions for the exchange of experiences,” he added.
Representatives of the NATO member-countries and partners and the organization’s relevant structures, as well as NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General Maurits Jochems (http://en.trend.az/search/?str=Maurits%2BJochems&m=a), attend the event.

It may be nothing, in the end, but I stick "it" up there on the community bulletin board because I am so sensitive now to the entire subject of "civil emergency planning" as something which can be corrupted, exploited and serve as a cover for nefariousness.

We have seen the use of drills that "go live"; the use of drills that mask ops, confuse people, and occupy attention; and we have seen entire Federal bureaucracies given over to the quiet development of programs that are waiting in the wings to impose martial law, round up "bad guys", etc.

If indeed the "lessons learned" concept has spread to NATO and Europe and countries that are in flux or otherwise critical in terms of exploitable resources, then the mere fact that some part of some government is planning to improve civil response to events may mean that there is an event about to happen.

30 08 2010 [Anytime an "independent" news source openly admits ties to Rockefeller front group, Council on Foreign Relations, as well as neocon central Heritage Foundation, it should serve as a large blinking red light to anyone paying attention.
