You mean if people were destroying a city and other peoples properties, like in LA in the 90's or London right now? Yes, I would try to prevent
idiots from destroying other peoples property. If you are talking about a civil war in this country, then on that point you are probably wrong. Many
in the armed forces draw a very clear line between fighting in a foreign country against an insurgency or a foreign military and picking a side in a
civil war in their own country. My friends in the military are from all over the country, I doubt that everyone would agree to take certain actions
within the US. I've got country friends, city friends, from the east, west, Puerto Rico, all over. There would definitely be some deserters no
matter where in the US the action were taking place.
Contrary to popular belief, the higher echelon you get to in combat arms the more down home American value type guys you come into contact with. The
highest level operators are much more the survivalist, hunting, fishing, redneck, beer and pickups type and much less the establishment type. If you
think these highly trained and extremely dangerous guys are going to turn their weapons on Americans, maybe you need to meet some of them.
Also, those of you who have not been in combat probably don't realize the zeal with which the enemy fights us, we allow them to fulfill their destiny
and they allow us ours. Men in combat are exactly where they want to be, on both sides. Many of these crybabies talking about PTSD and all the
terrible things they had to do, probably never did anything.
