Now I 'd like to disperse a myth here - many of you think that US military would not fight civilians. I can't speak for all, but in my case - the moment you declare civil war, you're no longer civilians. The moment you attack the constitution, you're now enemies of that constitution. And I swore to defend and support and if necessary give my life for that Constitution and utilize every tool, technique, and weapon at my disposal to do so. And trust me, I'm not alone. I hope some of you heed my words and cool the rhetoric and focus on achieving your goals diplomatically instead of physically. It would never want to receive a frag order to Maryland, or North Dakota, or Texas, but it is an order I will follow no matter how much it pains me to do so.
"For those of you calling for a civil war, I implore you to stop and think about what you're saying. Look around your neighborhood and your city. Now imagine using that terrain to survive. Imagine dodging semi-automatic rifle fire as you scramble from cover to cover, dragging your wounded child behind you. Imagine the deafening report of a mortar as it strikes the ground a 150 feet in front of you, the overpressure enough to shatter your teeth and perforate an ear drum. Try and envision a Stryker rolling through neighbor's front lawn or a F/A-18 making lazy loops over your head in Close Air Support for the troops in the distance."
If he is so concerned about defending the Constitution, why doesn't he get up off his butt and remove the criminal politicians and bankers out Washington D.C.???

I agree with you, but all of the Tea Party posters I have "met" on forums think that the corporatocracy is just fine. They are protecting the robber barons. People on both ends of the spectrum are, in fact.

dp you folks remember right before we invaded Iraq,
millions of leaflets were dropped on Saddam's
Republican Guard Troops which basically said
"if you abandon your tanks, you will not be harmed"?????
Well this post by the so-called Marine seems to be
the same kind of Psy-Ops ploy as those leaflets were.
It tries to soften the enemies resolve to fight.
Except they are using internet means today to get
their propaganda to the Revolutionaries.
