I really appreciate the response on this. I was in the Army many moons ago, and we were all instructed in the UCMJ, but it wasn't really pushed very
And I was in no way saying that our service people would do anything wrong, they are Americans too. I was more asking how the command structure views
questioning orders in this day and age, and how our military people were trained to think on such subjects.
As far as the use of Federal troops on American soil, well, that's just one Presidential Directive away, and in this climate of "terrorism", could
happen anytime and anywhere.
Irealize that in times of stress, you act first and worry about sorting it out later. I also remember the phrase "Kill'em all and let God sort "em
out". An attitude that didn't work well in the long term, but allowed for a lot more civilian casualties than most people would be comfortable
I would really like to hear from a wide variety of people on this, as it is a subject that is skirted in many posts, with assumptions being made
without actually talking to those military types that would be there on the ground.
