No...the marshall plan is now Air lifting food to a surrounded Berlin, and good luck in discovering anything about Martial law in High School.
It is funny, people think that Soldiers are emotionless Robots. But America has been under Martial Law before during the Civil War if I'm not
mistaken? And in either case, it HAD suspended Habeus Corpus.
Also look at Soviet Union, now there is a nation where it cared NOTHING about its people. And even they could not TAKE over the government through
Martial Law. The Soldiers just upped and said, "SCREW YOU POLIT BURO, Killing Hungarians is one thing but RUSSIANS IS NOT ON OUR BOOKS, NOR WILL IT
I agree with Byrd, martial law, nor military take over can occur in america. Aside from the fact that the Military's loyalties still lie to their
families, a lot of people in this country still possess firearms of all sorts.
Only in the movies does the heartless soldier that supports NWO-like regiems exist, in reality, the NWO would have to force the soldiers to fight
their own families, only one other nation on earth attempted this, ROME. And because of it Rome had lost a standing army that was roman, forced to
rely on mercenaries Rome lost the "war" it forever prepared for but never came, through an invasion of barbarians.
Rome forever prepared for Civil War, in the end it never had to fight a war against brothers, legion against legion yes, but their soldiers were as
human as anyone, and wouldn't turn their swords to their civilians any more effectively than the Russians, or America ever could.
Where's George Washington when you need him? Oh and it is quite interesting, since George Washington and General Laffayett had to "crack down" on
a few rebellions, with what today would seem like the enslavement of all of america. But as we all see, we are quite free, whether Bush is a bafoon
or not is not mine to judge. But the needs of democracy sway like a branch in the wind, but when the winds die down the branch is always steady.
