Let's do a little very simple math.
That's 80 solders per state.
Assume 40 cities or towns large enough to be a problem.
That's 2 soldiers per city.
Hardly a menacing force.
Are you still shaking in your boots?

It's very simple really: People screamed out, "Take our liberties, just please make us safe!" after 9-11. People demanded the President to take action. In a united voice we screamed for blood. For justice.
Whats even worse, is they knew the public would do that to begin with, hence why it happened.
We're at a huge disadvantage, they had ~200 years to plan this, they control almost every single part of our lifes and most of all.....
They got these.

Background: the First Brigade of the Third Infantry Division, three to four thousand soldiers, has been deployed in the United States as of October 1. Their stated mission is the form of crowd control they practiced in Iraq, subduing "unruly individuals," and the management of a national emergency. I am in Seattle and heard from the brother of one of the soldiers that they are engaged in exercises now. Amy Goodman reported that an Army spokesperson confirmed that they will have access to lethal and non lethal crowd control technologies and tanks.
George Bush struck down Posse Comitatus, thus making it legal for military to patrol the U.S. He has also legally established that in the "War on Terror," the U.S. is at war around the globe and thus the whole world is a battlefield. Thus the U.S. is also a battlefield.
What do you guys think?
"Could face martial law..." - to some degree aren't we already facing it? and with the U.S Army given persmission to control our streets ... thats more control than should be given up to any one group of men to decide. This is a republic is it not? WE DO make decisions don't we? Then somebody explain to me why I woke up to this...
[edit on 9-10-2008 by ConMi27]
Note the quoted words in your insert..."unruly individuals".
Now does it take a slide rule to figure this out or what?
If you have mass public chaos, YES they will enact marital law. OK?
If you have calm, decent normal daily activity of the populace, they WONT enact martial law. OK?
Even a pre schooler can figure that one out.

We keep talking and thinking about our troops patrolling in our streets and bringing order and law among us. Whatever orders given against Americans that might be.
As stated 4,000 soldiers isn't a lot when you figure into the fact that we have 50 states. What if however those 4,000 were used to command and train foreign troops that would be in America ruling over us?
Something else I've often wondered about too, any idea how many illegal aliens are over here living? What if they were offered citizenship and amnesty to simply wear a soldiers uniform and do what is asked of them. How would they have any loyalty to the average citizen?
Just some thoughts
