After 1st BCT finishes its dwell-time mission, expectations are that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that the mission will be a permanent one. “Right now, the response force requirement will be an enduring mission. How the [Defense Department] chooses to source that and whether or not they continue to assign them to NorthCom, that could change in the future,” said Army Col. Louis Vogler, chief of NorthCom future operations. “Now, the plan is to assign a force every year.”

I honestly cannot imagine soldiers turning against their families and friends in the event the government turns on us in the way many here are probably sure they will. I do not believe in brainwashing to that degree, they know they are not sworn to protect or do the bidding of greedy bankers who infiltrated the government. In actuality, they should probably be turning on the government, since it is SO obvious it's been hijacked by those who not only wish to harm our nation, but are doing it as we speak. Either way, I just cannot see them rounding us up, they ARE us. The army is made up of OUR family and friends, they are being screwed just as badly as we are, probably even MORE SO. Even though they cannot come on here and express it, any thinking soldier has probably taken a few moments to figure out that 700 BILLION dollars can buy ALOT of armor. Not to mention, they are probably wondering why, if we are in as MUCH financial crap as they are trying to scare us into believing, are we NOT pulling our soldiers out of Iraq, RIGHT NOW!? That's a HUGE expense we can cut IMMEDIATELY. But no, they will continue to hold Haliburton's investment, with minimal resources, yet a HUGE cost to America. I can guarantee regardless of what the government mandates they say, they aren't happy.
