Don't know how many people have seen this movie, but what are your thoughts on something like it happening? If so, who would be involved? Also, how easy or hard would it be to fight them back, taking into consideration their manpower?
When this movie was made Patrick Swayze looked like a kid just out of high school, Charlie Sheen looked like a kid still in high school, Powers Boothe was believable as a USAF Colonel and a good guy, and the Soviet Union was still a major threat.
Impractical. The government has enough weapons in storage for almost every US citizen to fight back an invasion. It would also be obvious as hell that someone was to invade because of the buildup it would require, ie. movement of troops, equipment, etc.
“Isn’t the theory that millions of Chinese troops will be stacked inside container ships then grounded along the west coast to conquer us all!”
Question: How do you kill millions of Chinese troops!
Answer: see above quote
If they don’t all die of suffocation or drowning in sh** and pi**, we will always have General Pelosi to protect us.
West Germany did not allow the movie to be shown there, and the media here, hated it.
I love it.
The TV show Jericho would be a better question.
Anybody watch this grat show?
As long as MC is heading up DHS there’s really nothing to worry about.
“To keep our country we have to defend it from the jihadists AND the liberals.”
I worry more about the libs. You can kill the jihadis, but if you even argue with a lib you will get hauled before the Thought Crimes court.
Ain’t gonna happen the Red Dawn way. The folks in the Capital are going to give the country away.
A more likely scenarion is massive civil unrest from the barbarian hordes that we’ve allowed across the border.
In the course of these events the cops and NG are ordered to arrest and / or disarm anyone who DARES defend themselves, their property, their community, or their nation.
If you’re lookin’ for a foreign enemy military, the add UN troops invited in for “pacification” and “peacekeeping.”
I watched it a little at first, but it was kind of hard to get into it.
Bird Col.: "As of 30 minutes ago, there are now HALF a billion Chinese."
Ivan and the Dragon aren't really the problem. One point two billion Muslims bent on a world Caliphate are. And Pooty Poot and Who know it.
Loved this flick, but Russia is no longer in any shape to do this anymore. China isn’t yet, but they’re working to get there.
Spam In A Can. I'd love to see how that played out. Target rich environment. :0)
We have been invaded by idiots, and they’ve taken over Congress.
It is a lot better than “ Lost” And has enough action to keep you interested.
A very good story line and realistic plot..plus it it Pro Gun Owner Kinda...
I wouldn’t be too sure about your first condition (organized army), or the second.
But he just caved on "dirty dancing" and let that take over. Where was he then, huh?
Actually, many of them DO carry weapons and ARE organized - in gangs.
She’ll get elected president.
However, should Mexico fall to a leftist regime, and an independent Quebec go Marxist, there would then exist land bases from which to stage an invasion. There are several areas of instability that could be exploited to cause a high level of civil strife and maybe even a second civil war. These include many millions of unassimilated illegals who may be made "legal" in the near future; networks of radical Muslim terrorists, not all of whom are Middle Eastern, but could also be white (as with the Albanians recently charged with trying to attack Fort Dix), Asian (Indonesian and Malaysian), or black (the Beltway snipers); militant non-Muslim blacks like the New Black Panther Party; hard core Marxists like the Worker's World party or Act Up; and "faux right" white separatist militia groups, infiltrated by Muslim or Russian agents. Combine these factors with either a weak kneed liberal Administration like one under Obama or Edwards or a heavy handed Administration like one under Hillary that would try confiscating private firearms and purging the military and Federal law enforcement agencies of conservative personnel. There could then be a breakdown of civil order in this country or even a civil war that would provide cover for foreign intervention.
There are a lot of "ifs" and "maybes" in the above scenarios. However, vigilance is always necessary so that it will not happen here.
