Its easy to say you wont rob,hurt, or kill for food when you have a full stomache and plenty of food in your kitchen....... Lets not forget people, that we humans are really animals, we just wear clothes.
Besides, if the military were going to do such a thing, in the planning phase when we gather our intel, this is more than likely the first place we'd troll for potential threats. Don't think your online privacy is worth a crap when you have an organization that has highly developed crypto.
“Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
“Education is dangerous - Every educated person is a future enemy”
Above two quotes from Hemann Goering (Reich marshal under Adolph Hitler).

People here state that the U.S. citizens will fight back. I don't think so. Look at the $700b bailout,
the Patriot Act,
We don't fight back worth nothing.
Look at the other nations, Greece, the Asian nation that took over the airport. For the smaller scale things, these people will stand up the government. Even when a cop shoots an innocent man, we might have a hundred people protest, but nothing else.
You can honestly sit here and tell me, you see a brigade of tanks and armed to the teeth soldiers coming down your street you are going to fight back? Yea right.

Exactly. It is what I said, we make the reality. If certian "Im billy bard arse and I will fix their little red wagons" armchair toughies want to go out and stirr up chaos, it is those who will be rounded up and put into prison, camps or put down for good,
while the rest of civilized society goes on with their lives and actually deals with problems in a civilized way.
Seems like there are some who are itching for trouble, want trouble and think they can overcome anything that is sent their way.
Well, who is stopping them? Why do we not see any of these toughies going into the streets right now flexing their tiny muscles and showing who's boss?
When it comes right down to it, they want to see someone else take the first step first..
since none have done that...looks like no one wants to be the first to demonstrate how stupid all this nonsense really is and to be the first to be taken away in a body bag and box. And your box wont have an American flag drapped across it either.

Well, my personal belief is that IF US soldiers ever come for us, a majority of us will not know it and we will go quietly. As the news gets out about what is happening, other US citizens may have time to arm themselves. A really good question is: could you as the average US citizen shoot a US soldier? Can you keep doing it thinking all the while that you are just and right in what you are doing? Would you put your family and loved ones at risk to stay that course?
