First, you assume a repressive government taking command here in the US. Our congressmen and Senators come from their home areas all over the nation.
Don' think for a moment that an oppressive government will come to fruition here in the US. Some group may through force assume the title, but it
would be a short-lived reign.
Guerrilla war doesn't work against an oppressive government? Tell that to the Batiste survivors from Cuba. Tell that to the Chinese. Tell that to
Formosa. Tell that to the French. The English. Czechs. Former clients of the USSR. Tell that to the Americans who once already put together a
Army that bested the best Army in the world. It takes a while, and a lot of lives, but you know nothing of the SOB's that make up this country.
You may be right when it comes to portions of New England and California. But not the rest of the country.
And that close air support? If ever once used against its citizens, our military bases would overnight resemble Fort Apache or the Alamo. One single
attack. The US military doesn't have enough men to fight the people here in the US. And if compelled, our military would not follow those orders.
No way they are going to war on their own families and people.
You've got the German people, the German Army, and Hitler confused with the US. We swear allegiance to no man. Only to defend our Constitution.
And we take that oath as some seriousschitt.
And you missed one of my earlier points. We in the US have millions of former veterans. Hundreds and hundreds of thousands of combat vets. Not
poorly trained fat accountants. Men who have fought in other wars and who are far from untrained. I can move fifteen feet from my computer and reach
an M-14, an AR-15, and a .45 Colt. One of my specialties in the military was an engineer (12B5S) with extensive training in explosives. I also had
11B4V, 11C4V, and 054V. I know how to cook.
We also have small weapons development companies here in the US that have developed significant weapons systems and force multipliers. Most of our
really good stuff originates from these small companies. Every development here is the US is designed, built, and manufactured by private companies.
Who would likely not regard a takeover kindly.
And rather than just seeing some of these high-tech developments on television, any attacking military could enjoy a first-hand demonstration.
As Americans, we'll fight like hell among ourselves over the smallest of things. But you let some jerk attempt to take charge and impose his will,
you'll have to take on all of us! It has never, ever worked in history against a Western Power. Never.
No, friend, whatever floats your boat.
