Aren't there rules about submitting heresay articles around here? If not, there should be.
I am not sure I see a problem here, anyone who joins the military takes an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foregin AND domestic.
Why is this suddenly a shock to people around here?

Fascinating post raj, but if I may ask, what does this have to do with the price of oysters in China? Your "commenteries" all consist of denials, attacks, obfuscation , and mis-direction, this last item being a good description of your last post.
If you want to discuss how great BLACKWATER employees are fine, go start a thread on it, it has NOTHING to do with whether American troops would fire on American Citizens.

The next false flag operation will kick off the uprising of the citizens and the law and military who have been brainwashed will believe these people are terrorists and will kill them.
This is all being very carefully planed out to bury any desent once and for all.

I never saw anything about "shoot American citizens, including their own friends and family members" in that video or story. However, I suppose if they had weapons of their own and were attempting to use them that there is no doubt in my mind the military would intervene.
I see nothing wrong with this. The possibility of a country-wide panic is very likely during a time of crisis. The military is here for stability and protection, not to kill its own citizens... they ARE citizens. People forget that. Military people have families, friends, and PAY TAXES just like you and I. This is the dumbest news story I've read in a while. Of COURSE they're going to prepare for civil unrest in a world that is becoming more globally unstable by the minute.
If you take the military out of the picture, then what? It's almost like the people who hate police, yet when they're in trouble, who do they call?
This is just breeding more conspiracy, distrust, and hatred against the countries most trustworthy and loyal group of people, the MILITARY.... not the government. It offends me really. While we're sitting on our asses in front of our computers, these people are spread out all over the world obeying orders that they might not agree with in the hopes that their children have a world to grow up in.

More like a case of Americans being given a taste of their own medicine to me. They like boasting about how their Army is the best in the world and what savage killing machines they are, now they will know how it feels to be an Iraqi citizen. Though not all Americans are like that I think most deserve it.
