To quote immortal technique... The military's not there for the people's protection, their just there to protect an investment... And that's the cold hard truth, the people fighting these inhumane wars, regardless of which side they are on are nothing more than pawns being used in a game. You think your fighting for your country... You've been lied to... You think your fighting for your religion... You've been lied to. If you are willing to kill for your beliefs, you are spiritually deficient. Corporations, government, banks, religion... All tools to keep you physically & mentally enslaved. Patriotism is a taught & conditioned sickness... Just like religion. Most people I know of religious faith only believe what they believe because that's what they were taught, and they think they're religious beliefs are the absolute truth, I pose the following question... Say your a Christian and you believe that to be the absolute truth... What if you were born into a Jewish family and that's what you were taught... That would be your absolute truth... If you were born into a Muslim family, Islam would be your absolute truth... So in that line of thought, being born in America... Were the greatest country on earth... G-d bless America... Lies, propaganda... Lies & propaganda. Please think outside the manufactured box of so called reality that the government, which is controlled by the corporations & the fake man made religious institutions would have you believe. I personally am willing to die for what I believe in, but I would never kill for it... So if martial law is declared or some other bullish!t reason they decide to use military against civilians... Kill me... I'm past the point of no return... I'll be a martyr for my beliefs, I will never be put in a cage...

No most of them don't, and you need to remember the training is meant to keep people in line and not questioning orders. If you question every order things don't get done therefore that sort of behavior is discouraged....

For any Military Personnel on ATS, What are you going to do when you are ordered to the streets of America to act as police over the very people you are entrusted to protect? In other words, go against everything that America stands for?

Do you truly believe that there is a chance that the general population will revolt against it's governement by force??
A small group may but not enough to cause an all out war. It just wont happen.
