You are right about my being in the military; I served in Korea during the war.
Even then we had psychopaths and sociopaths who would kill for fun and likely wouldn't hesitate to follow such orders.
Troops are hand-picked for certain missions. Soldiers sent to serve in the Mainland would have no doubt been assessed as to their psycholgical state.
They will be men who have been profiled and who have likely already stated that they would follow such orders, and would have no problem at all
serving in "the homeland."
I repeat, this brigade has been selected because the soldiers serving in it have answered 'yes' certain to questions in the numerous instances
during which they were being profiled. You can bet they are going to follow orders.
Killing people can be a lot of fun for some people. It doesn't really matter who - so long as they are not family. This is sadly the mindset for
many soldiers. Many men become soldiers for this reason.
I was drafted - you know, FORCED to serve under pain of imprisonment and family exile. Luckily, I was able to convince myself that I was going in
the place of an Evil Man, an thus could do good where someone else would have done wrong.... Basically I rationalized it to myself, like many of us
"The US population is armed."
Trust me: They are cowards and won't do a damn thing until the TV tells them to. The population is too dumb and too scared to ever do anything like
start an uprising, or engage a brigade in combat.
Edit: *I see you've backposted;
Several Articles including the Original Army Times article have been posted on this thread. I only posted that article as further substantiation.
I am surprised the number of people who suddenly began believing the government would/could do no wrong after this deployment was announced.
9/11, Waco, USS Liberty, WMD's in Iraq, 2.7 trillion missing on sept. 10 2001, Gulf of Tonkin.... Yup, Thi administration would never deploy troops
on US soil - yet they admit to sexually torturing children in front of their parents to get info from them (Google: John Yoo Torture Memo), and have
taken away all of your rights with the Patriot Act....
This Sets the precedent: The Posse Commitatus Act has been violated and no legal action has been taken against the perpetrators.
The soldiers in the brigade know about the Posse Commitatus Act, yet they did not refuse orders. They followed their orders to disregard that act and
continue their operations within "The Homeland" - now what dos that tell you about the quality of those men?
The soldiers know they are breaking the law, and setting a dangerous precedent. They don't care, that's why this particular group was selected.
Not one of them has refused to deploy. They are wilfully engaged in Treason, but who cares.... no one is going to stop them
