Imagine those same people all in possesion of automatic rifles, bombs, grenades, shotguns, and etc.
Do you think a military could stand up to the likes of this?
:shk: Really now, you think that mob could stand tow to toe no matter how it is armed with a regular army formation practicing combined arms tactics etc?
At any rate you are making an assumption that every armed citizen will rise up and oppose an NWO style take over.

Any other views you have on them, I’d really be interested on what people have to say about Militia as it’s very important on something I plan on writing.
- Would this be a good way to fight a large Government force or would all members of these Militia be easily tracked down in this new high-tech age?
yes. militia can and has overthrown larger forces before
- When has a militia in History managed to overcome a large government?
sparta vs. persia. the battle of Thermopylae, our founding fathers vs. the redcoats in the first american revolution, the battle of osaka castle
- If so were they able to do it without outside help?
yup unless you count procuring enemy weapons and ammunition as outside help
- Are there examples of Militia in other parts of the World, like Europe or Asia?
sparta, the iga ninja clan, vlad tsepis
- What’s the difference between a ‘Militia’ and the ‘Terrorist Cells’ in Iraq?
likemindedeness with the american constitution, human rights, woman and animal rights, the iraq terrorist cells mindlessly obey with no regards towards human or animal life
go to their websites, ask youself would i trade my personal freedom for safety?
Thank you all,
with all respect, yes - a civilian population, including members of a militia can meet an organized regular military force and beat them.
We have hundreds of thousands - literally - hundreds of thousands of former military personnel. We have tens of thousands of battle-hardened combat veterans who are civilians.
Many if not all are armed. And if you'd ever talked to a former Marine - they'll square you away in a skinny minute. There's no such thing as a former Marine. Once a Marine, always a Marine.
I'm former Special Forces, the guy down the street is a former Ranger, and a few blocks away a good friend is nightmare to his enemies, and he's as tough as nails.
Any US military force if attacked will of course fight. If I'm on my post guarding it and am attacked, I'll kill every SOB I can, citizen or not. They don't come for me - they'll have no problem from me.
The only way we'll have any significant problems out of our military is if the citizenry attack them or their positions. A good portion of our military have their own families, their own hometowns, and they'll be lighting a shuck and heading home.
Even if we can only field 20,000,000 or one out of four gun owners - that's the largest army in the world.
Our Marines couldn't take any of our larger cities without losing most of their men, and there won't be replacements coming.
We want them to hold their lines on their bases, ready to defend the nation, and we can put this thing back together once the general killing gets done.
You're outta your gourd.
The premise of the thread was the effectiveness of a militia against the New World Order. This genius, supposes your candiass talking and reasoning approach has already gone to hell.
You sound pretty smug, but very immature and inexperienced in how things work. Do you sincerely think things are going to continue as they are going?
Sometimes, the smallest events kick off the greatest disasters. Look up what kicked off WWI. I guarantee you, it had nothing to do with the United States. But we damnwell got into it.
A guerrilla style fight can do exactly as I said. You can bleed a much larger force dry.
You may not like firearms, and sounds like you didn't have much of a male role model, and you certainly didn't serve in any combat units - but let me assure you - your assumptions are wrong.
Even a minor interruption in transport will mean the lives of some fifty million Americans inside 60-days. Some drugs used by 30,000,000 have to be refrigerated, and are at best stocked for 30 days. And that's just one facet of our population.
You grow up if you get the chance, and then come back and discuss matters such as this with a mature, informed, logical basis, and I'll be the first to star you.
