Only with THOUSANDS of OFFENSIVE strategic ballistic missiles. There still is NO OTHER DEFENSE. The ABM sites in Alaska can't handle but a few missiles from such as North Korea.
So again, that's a THREAT to other nations. Not a latent militia defense force from the 18th century that is no threat to anyone. Mutually Assured destruction is the policy of the USA right now, and that has worked so far, even though it tends to encourage enemies to "strike first" if they are worried about our stability.
Do you think Ron Paul has a problem with the military as present within our own borders?
He certainly has a problem with the pentagon's budget, mission and scope. Maybe he likes the soldiers though.
If and when our enemies should ever undertake to put boots on the ground over here . . . well . . let's hope to God our guns have not been confiscated by then, because by then we should have had the blessing of federal powers to assemble and train militias for just such a thing.
Actually, spot on that I should mention Killeen. Enemy boots on the ground (just two boots) INSIDE Fort Hood...where ALL these Paul-Approved defensive soldiers who would protect us are stationed...and they are not allowed to carry guns. 13 dead, 29 injured.
Hey! Let's do math!
If there were 21,000 Major Hassan's that our enemies wanted to put boots on our defensive Army bases, well you can calculate 882,000 casualties....decimating the entire active and reserve Army corps.
There's a lot more we can do than to fold our military up as Paul seems to want.
There still is NO OTHER DEFENSE.
Well then, we'd best get crackin'. Wait. We've spent all our cash building Iraq and Afghanistan for people who don't even think like us.
The ABM sites in Alaska can't handle but a few missiles from such as North Korea. So again, that's a THREAT to other nations.
A threat to other nations how? Sounds to me like an opportunity for them to attack.
