My son’s friend is in the remake! He’s a Michigan football player in an early scene. They already shot it. Can’t wait til it comes out...I loved the original.

By the time hollywood get done with a “Red Dawn” remake, the bad guys will be some militia group with backing from the tobacco companies and big oil and the “good guys” will be members of Obama’s youth corp.

They could make a boatload of money if they would just serve up a movie their audience likes.

Don’t preach to me; don’t insult me; don’t patronize me. ENTERTAIN ME.

Just make a mix of true-blue war porn and a side-line tough-guy love story with some accessible hottie for a female supporting actress ... and you are good to go.

AND for CHRISSAKE, get an ex-military guy/gal advising your director so you don’t have “Raptors launched from our sole-surviving carrier ...” only to show F-16s dropping ordinance on the California desert that’s supposed to be suburban Indianapolis.

I mean, how hard can good war porn be?

OK ... have some fun. Let’s war game this.

What major seaport is FARTHEST from a major US Army post or Marine base? i.e., what major city would have the slowest meaningful tactical response by the US Military if several ‘container’ and RORO vessels showed up and unloaded, seized a beachhead in said major city — took prominent hostages (CNN would gladly cover it) — and said comply or these thousands will die. All they’d have to do is start shutting down civilian services — water, transport, electricity, communications and people would start dying in three days or less. CNN would broadcast the total civil chaos that would ensue.

We’d HAVE to give in, especially if the ‘right type’ of populations were at risk.

Add a few tactical EMP rockets over nearby cities to add a buffer of confusion, and they’ve ‘won’ round one.

Your move. Those are my first moves.

The movie will last ten minutes. The first five will document the kids trying to get pistol permits. The second five will be spent looking for ammo. Then they just give up. The end.

I think something like:

"On the 3rd Sunday of Oct 2012, our Dear Leader was looking at poll numbers that announced he would be replaced by Sarah Palin/Joe Wilson in a route. He ordered his secretary to connect him with the UN Security Council.

Lighting a cigarette, he was put through and said 'This is the President of the United States. Commence Operation CleanUp immediately.' Having dealt away all nuclear deterrence, and purged the Armed Forces of experienced officers, a full scale invasion by elements of Russia, China, Brazil and Mexico would begin. And his seat assured for Life."

I am not concerned, YET, about another country taking us over, I am concerned about the communist government we have in power at this point in time in taking us over, then later after we have been weakened we would have to worry about other countries.

He dictated the entire Quint/USS Indianapolis story over the telephone. Probably the best dialogue in the entire movie.

They’re shooting in my area, downtown Pontiac. I was at the Blue Note Cafe while they were filming and at one point a member of the production team came in to make sure that no one went outside during the shooting of a specific scene.

“I could honestly see Pelosi and all of congress (for that matter), helping to set up detainment facilities where we could get food and shots and be kept safe until Omaba gets the talking and deal making sorted out.”

They would be the first ones shot. No way would any invader let them sit at the table of the leaders and people who would actually be running the country. If the Chinese did invade and take over, no way would they let some stupid politico wield any power; if he’s too weak to defend his own country, he is obviously too weak to lead the new regime or be part of it.

If he backstabs his own people, he’s not trustworthy, along with his cronies. Again, traitors are not trustworthy, even to the new regime. Same with Hollywood. All the actors and actresses would be herded into the studios for propaganda with their kids held in ‘daycare’ while they film. If the actors step out of line, their kids would be taken until the actor toes the line. If he doesn’t still, he gets shot.

I really do wish the Hollywood idiots would realize this and stop supporting a regime that would reduce them to sex playthings for the elite and propaganda tools. If I mysel were a dictator I would have the actresses sleep with the sons of the elite and shoot them if they try to pull anything like trying to undermine my regime.

As for the rest of the backstabbing liberals, I’d have them shot and their possessions confiscated to pay for the regime and also give them to loyalists who have ensured my position. As for the rest of the citizenry, I’d go easy on them except when they break the law. I’d also reinstate the death penalty in each state whether the stupid hippies liked it or not.

> Your move.

My fellow Americans and citizens of the Planet.

Today, the United States is at war. A major U.S. port has been attacked and is currently under control of hostile forces. I am placing the Unites States under martial law. All public communication channels are now subject to government censorship.

Our enemy has made demands on us that we categorically reject. I have ordered one of our Ohio class submarines to launch one of its Trident c4 missiles with a total of 8 MIRVed 100kt W76 nuclear warheads against targets of our choice.

While our enemy has placed the lives of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of our citizens at risk, for now, we will limit our response to enemy military facilities.

We demand that you order your forces to stand down and surrender to local authorities. Each of our Ohio class submarines has 24 missiles with a total of 192 warheads. We will continue to launch our missiles until you stop your act of war against our country.

Do you understand?.

The President of the Unites States

Nice escalation! perhaps effective. Here’s our response.

While we continue to consolidate and expand our beachhead, we have unloaded more and more fast-reaction and mobile infantry forces with robust anti-aircraft defenses.

We have established our first airbase at Houston Hobby and are setting up an additional airbase near Beaumont. We have bombed and neutralized your Army base in western Louisiana and the former SAC base in Bossier is unusable/cratered.

Since you have no missile defenses within your own borders, and I had anticipated your potential retaliation, I have now launched 6 more missiles from my expanding base along the Texas coast, with EMP warheads that will detonate above the NE, SE, central, SW, W, NW portions of your country.

The US can now no longer function as a civilized society. You cannot operate serve, supply or maintain your infrastructure or your citizenry ... or your military for that matter, since your roads and rails are now effectively impassable.

YOUR needs are now your own citizens. YOUR families.

BY the way, check San Francisco, Oakland specifically. We just started unloading there. You lost San Diego to us four hours ago. But we took HEAVY losses there, as the USMC was able to mount fierce local opposition to our attempts to establish a beachhead AND destroyed or damaged 40% of our vessels/cargo. Organized and effective military resistance by the USMC and local citizens persists in southern California.

You will lose the entire western half of the US militarily within 4 weeks on current course.

OH, since you replied with nuclear weapons, we just obliterated DC, Camp David, Langley and Norfolk. Charleston and Jacksonville were disabled by EMP.

BTW, Atlanta, Memphis, Charlotte, Raleigh, Richmond, Baltimore, Philly, Newark, NYC, Hartford, Providence and Boston are now controlled by the barbarians who lived there before, but were barely in check by the authorities. Enjoy dealing with them.

You better get your house in order or you will have none to defend.

Your move.

A few thoughts on some parts of your response...

> While we continue to consolidate and expand our beachhead, we have unloaded more and more fast-reaction and mobile infantry forces

All shipping is ordered to stay 100 miles outside U.S. territorial waters until the crisis is over. Vessels ignoring this order will be considered enemy warships and will be sunk without warning.

> with robust anti-aircraft defenses.

Which will be dealt with in short order, giving us air superiority to attack your forces.

> We have established our first airbase at Houston Hobby and are setting up an additional airbase near Beaumont. We have bombed and neutralized your Army base in western Louisiana and the former SAC base in Bossier is unusable/cratered.

OK, but your bases are just as easy to put out of commission. No airbases for you for very long, all your assets destroyed along with your bases.

> I have now launched 6 more missiles from my expanding base along the Texas coast, with EMP warheads that will detonate above the NE, SE, central, SW, W, NW portions of your country. The US can now no longer function as a civilized society.

Bad move on your part. An EMP attack of this scale, in my opinion, justifies a full scale nuclear response, however, in the interests of humanity I will limit my response to a full scale EMP attack on your country along with the destruction of ALL military bases on your territory. If we were forced to escalate by future events, I think we would be delivering several hundred warheads in the first salvo and hundreds more on followup strikes, with civilian, economic and infrastructure targets now in play.

> Organized and effective military resistance by the USMC and local citizens persists in southern California.

I dare say that you will encounter organized and effective resistance by local citizens all over the country. (I saw somewhere that U.S. civilians have more guns and ammo than the Chinese and Indian armies combined).

> You will lose the entire western half of the US militarily within 4 weeks on current course.

The entire western half of the US?. All million or so square miles of it?. I daresay you barely have enough forces to hold more than a handful of our urban areas.

> You cannot operate serve, supply or maintain your infrastructure or your citizenry ... or your military for that matter, since your roads and rails are now effectively impassable.

Which means neither can your forces. Bad move if your objective is to occupy and hold territory only for it to turn out you are subject to the same aftermath of the EMPs you set off - just where are you going to pump your gas from?.

> Atlanta, Memphis, Charlotte, Raleigh, Richmond, Baltimore, Philly, Newark, NYC, Hartford, Providence and Boston are now controlled by the barbarians who lived there before. Enjoy dealing with them.

All urban areas are under 24 hour curfew, our National Guard troops have orders to shoot to kill.

> Your move.

Where are the Type 95 rifles? That’s what the Chinese are carrying now. Some would carry Type-03 rifles

And the Russians would carry the AK-107 and the AN-94 rifles.

And where are the Russians/Soviets? They must not arrive till later.
