Why do you think they have been trying to socially reform the military with gays in the military and women in combat? They know that if it comes to the thin red line between soldiers defending liberty and the constitution and killing and imprisoning fellow citizens the soldiers will stand with the citizen.
This story pops up from time to time, always a nice refreshing read.
We all STILL have too much to lose.When it comes to nothing to lose then its on like donkey kong.Just remember the french resistance and also what the soviets had to contend with.
Homosexuals have been in every military since we lived in caves. I knew several during my time in the service, both male and (many more) female. None of the services train females for combat to the degree they do males, and I don’t see that changing in the near future. Remember the young female soldier that was taken captive early in the Iraq war? She couldn’t remember how to operate her M-16 rifle during the firefight. We had plans to evacuate our female soldiers from Korea in case of attack, which would have, of course, left us short-handed in an emergency. If they think that plan is working, they’d best re-think it.
A ragtag bunch of yahoos in Iraq sure did give our military an awful lot of trouble. Of course, they wouldn’t be as nice to us, but I’m sure we could cause them some pain.
But the military would be on our side. It’s Obama’s ‘civilian military force’ that we’d have to contend with.
LMAO every time I see that myth posted.
Resistance, yeah sure, that explains that whole Petain Vichy thing when French Police and militia's rounded up Jews for their German overlords.
And more than half of air dropped supplies ended up in the hands of the communist tireurs who were turning in right wing resistance groups when they weren't murdering them outright.
The whores of Place Pigalle showed more resistance then the average frenchie
That was a great movie!
And anyone who has seen it understands how to fight against a modern army.
You have to bide your time and pick your battles.
I enjoyed reading that, thank you! In a deteriorated situation, things break down into predators, prey and warriors. A warrior is someone who will not let themselves or those they protect be the victims. A warrior arms themselves with faith, intelligence, character and the biggest honking weapon they can snag.
The Jews in the Warsaw ghetto held off the the entire mechanized Nazi machine for two weeks with paultry numbers of handguns, molotov cocktails, and whatever they could scrape together.
There are approximately 836,000 law enforcement officers in the United States (Dept. of Justice). There are approximately 1.4 million active duty military personnel. The FBI estimates the number of privately-held firearms in the United States at 200 million. That's why "your gun versus an army" is not a particularly plausible case.
I’ve heard that it was amazing how the ranks of the Resistance swelled, after the war was over.
I bet if it ever comes to the Army against private (conservative) citizens, all the rules & squeemishness regarding collateral damage will go out the window.
I don’t think that is an argument. Who knows about what was going on in caves. :-) It is one thing to know homosexuals it is another to allow the celebration of the lifestyle in the military. I know of several cases of male rape have occurred and gay activism is incompatible with the military. Also homosexuality is a disease ridden lifestyle and open homosexuality is a distraction from the goals of the military.
I do believe my basic assertion is true. The left has been trying to soften the military through forced social programs and they do want to re-educate our soldiers not just on the two issues I mentioned buy down the line.
They have been brainwashing the public for decades the military is the one place they have yet to conquer.
Huh? I think you just made this gentleman’s case, or did I misunderstand you?
When misfortune begins to befall the Praetorian Guards, eventually the emperor finds himself alone.
