WASHINGTON — A Democratic congressman has proposed outlawing “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons” and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution, a major departure from prior gun control proposals that typically exempt existing firearms.
what context do you speak of?
Good lord, he wasn’t talking about nuking Americans because they have guns. He was being sarcastic about people who think their assault rifles will protect them from the American military. And on that he’s right. It wouldn’t even be a fight.
To take that and try to make it seem like he and the Democrats by extension want to nuke gun owners is well, stupid. If you believe things like that then I have no doubt you could probably be fooled into supporting a war against other Americans.
So your assertion is that the US military couldn't fail against a small, well armed, well organized guerrilla force.
Hahahahaha! Guess we'll just ignore everything from Vietnam on hey?
The US military would not use nukes or any other weapon of the sort on Americans. If they didn't in Iraq, Afghanistan or Vietnam why would they on home soil?
The American people constituting a guerrilla force would be the most highly trained and well armed group the US military would have ever faced outside of WW2.
And unlike the fighters in foreign wars there are plenty of Americans that would be able to operate any piece of machinery they wanted. Unlike Mustafar in Iraq, Jim Bob in Arkansas could jump right into an Apache or an Abrams.
This isnt even taking into account the vast, vast support these guerillas would have inside the American military which foreign fighters do not enjoy.
Wow. Here is some real fantasy Rambo crap here.
What I think you mean to say is...
The fattest, most out of shape, overly ego'd and completely untrained bunch of people that the military wouldn't even have to fire a single shot against. What a joke this particular excuse for the 2nd is. Vietnam was a long time ago. Things are different. Technology is different. Afghanistan is not under the overarching power and control of the US. The US controls it's utilities. It controls access to information. It controls its airspace. It controls it's transit, commerce and sustenance. At least be smart about it.
Cell phones cut. Internet cut. All utilities cut. Zero communication. Panic ensues. Gas from the air in the night. You. Have. Nothing.
They'd barely have to try.
Or hell, just cause a disturbance that forces this so-call guerilla force to run a 1/2 mile to escape and they'll be panting on the ground clutching their diabetic, heart disease ridden chests. Then just round them up.
Lol Wow its clear someone here hasnt ever spent any time in the Military.
lol Rambo, I love when armchair generals come onto threads that are full of actual combat vets, and try to tell us how things would go down
That's the very reason I have no respect for cadet bonespurs and never will.
Have you ever seen a man eat his own head?
Prove to me that you can pop a can off a fence post with a pellet gun before I even listen.
War is darker than most of these punks promoting it can even comprehend.
So much BS being spewed here. How many of you have actually been in combat? Anyone that's shot or been shot at? It's really easy to say that you're waiting or hoping for the # to hit the fan, but I guarantee when IF it does happen most of you are going to cower and not due a damn thing.
You know if would be really interesting to see it happen. I might not make it, but if I did I would love to see who else did. I gaurantee it won't be any better than today.
and foreign countries putting boots on our former land.
But who cares right? We're angry and # everyone who doesn't agree with us. Let's just keep hating one another. Let's keep listening to our choice of propaganda on the TV, radio, and streaming service.
You don’t know when she “woke up” Perhsos it is you who “just woke up” or maybe you aren’t do woken up. Sounds like you woke from your nap and said meh let the cabal do what they want since we can’t win. Some people though realize that putting your life on the line wins wars. The Founding Fathers did it. You should read the story of the mysterious stranger who appeared out of nowhere andvsaud “sign that document”!

The war to avoid globalization needed to have been fought and won centuries ago. You have lost and just don't know it because you have only now woken up to it.
The nature of the human animal to cluster into large and ever larger groupings is evident by many video representations of world population growth. Here is only one.
Does a warmonger care? Not much. They only care about their own pitiful existence and their failure to take control of their own life. They want others to feel their pain. They only care that something so great could happen that they can give themselves the excuse to create as much disaster and grief as they can.

Many of us are prepared for war. Many more are prepared to pick up the prices to build somethig great from the ruins left by the war.
