You know, being as almost all those stories have been debunked and proven to be blatant lies in most cases. The raping and shooting at heli's was a
bunch of crap that shamefully circulated for awhile.
While I may not believe as the OP believes in regards to these troops being home...I am frightened by the mindset you have shown.
If you can believe that crap (about hurricane Katrina; calling them animals and scumbags), then if the military was ever to be used against the
public, they would have at least one soldier to blindly follow orders.
Spines I got news for you...I was at Katrina, I spent 7 weeks there. So bluntly put, your wrong, and I'm guessing were nowhere near the decay in
N.O. during the days prior to the National Guard coming in to take over relief efforts. So YOU my friend are the one full of crap...and debunked by
who? I promise you, those who say it DIDN'T happen are the ones who were NOT there before the NG showed up.
And frightened by my minset...what my common sense to know this is all BS. My FIRST HAND knowledge of what happens if/when troops are asked to work
CONUS assignments outside of Posse Comitatus. Not to mention I am a law enforcement officer near a city with over 6 million people in it...which
means IF this ever comes to be truth, I think I would know..considering it would take ABOUT 8-10 MILLION soldiers just to seize Atlanta alone...if you
want total control of the AO. Of course if you wanted to just shoot and kill every person you see and NOT capture any of them, then you could get
away with 4 million troops for Atlanta. But currently the US has how many serving in uniform? Do the math, and you'll see how far fetched this
And assuming I would blindly follow orders...why because I know more then you about this subject? Because I WAS there at Katrina and saw the SCUM
take advantage of each other...because being civil isn't an option to them? Because you read some articles or watched a news broadcast and THINK you
know more then those of us who were there, or lived the life?
This isn't about katrina, its about a ploy to make people fear something thats NOT happening. But, if you want to get to the root of it all, look at
katrina...and how people DID act during that time, and you can see why the soldiers may have to help out.
