First of all, you dont get charged with desertion. If you knew anything about the military or really do have friends in the military, then you would
know that it is ENCOURAGED not to follow immoral orders from your superiors.
Whats more, your oath is to uphold and protect the constitution as it has been stated over and over again on this thread. I will also state, that
under the UCMJ soldiers that disobey orders that VIOLATE their oath to uphold said document, are PROTECTED. Not that it would matter at that point if
it came to it, because there would be a backlash against the government BY the military for ordering such a thing.
Second, its not a waste of time, its an honest inquiry, and as you can see, there are plenty of people who have thought about this. Looking around and
seeing whats going on in America, is making people ask A LOT of quetsions.
If i were you i would spend MORE time looking at things like this and becoming aware of what is going on around you.
3rd. Nothing in my OP said anything about FEMA camps, i did however ask a series of questions and hypothetical situations.
4th. Dont try to sit there and tell me anything about the military yourself...you may have "friends" in the military , but i spent a great part of
my life since 2002 IN Iraq and IN the military.
Any of your friends that say "We do what we are told" without question is either a bad soldier, or someone you just conjured up to give your post
Not trying to be a jerk, but dont come on this post thrashing people and being ugly for no reason. If you dont like the subject then DONT comment on
it, if you think its a waste of time , then why even post?
Edit to add: A lot of people are talking about the UN being the ones to do the dirty work, and ive often thought about this too, but its not the
subject of my thread. Im sure that they would indeed be tapped to come in and do things like this , if the situation came about. However with the
amount of military STILL stateside and former military personnel still living here, I dont really think we would have to worry much about that. We are
a pretty darn well armed country, with a huge amount of the population familiar with military operations , maneuvers and combat experience.
You get those of us who have been trained and know how to organize soldiers , and those vets who know how to mobilize, and the UN is gonna have some
pretty serious problems on their hands
