The vast majority of military personnel will NOT fire on U.S. citizens. You people really need to quit worrying about U.S. military personnel doing this. It will be Obama's buddies at the U.N. that will start the killing of Americans. The majority of military, military veterans, and law enforcement will NOT let that happen without a fight. We are well armed, and we won't let the blue helmets walk around without fearing for their own lives. Guerrilla tactics in the U.S. will be very bloody for any invading forces.

This is nothing more than a feel good its christmas time propaganda piece. Paul Lowe is a life coach. Check out his site.
You can change the world.
You are much more than you think.
I guess were not supposed to remember this famous quote.
Lt. Gen. HONORE: "Put those damn weapons down. I'm not going to tell you again, goddamn it. Get those goddamn weapons down."
He had to order them more than one time.

Don't get this wrong, But the national guard and any Oath Keepers WILL fire on Looters and Rioters that are destroying private property.
Or endangering the public.
Those are lawful orders.
We also will arrest or eliminate criminals praying on the public. Its up to the criminal.
This comes under common law.
Others would be unlawful.if unconstitutional.

Oh yeah, burning down and destroying black neighborhoods while looting really makes a positive statement about "rights". Exactly what part of destroying and taking stuff that is not yours makes a statement about "rights:?
You are right the national guard should have let them destroy their own neighborhood completely. Oh wait that is racist...

I don't know if it's made up, the person who posted the story must have gotten some flack for posting this story on FB and Oath Keepers.
By the way, the site has a nice video of a NG unit that refused to confiscate guns during Katrina.

You make a good point there and it needs to be pointed out. But, I'm sure if you know this, you also know that in August 2005 the largest part of the LA Guard (256th Infantry Brigade) was deployed to Iraq, so though you are right about the reliance of LA on out of state guard units, there is more to the story.
On Honore, I never thought he was just a PR stunt. If I had never personally met the man I might think different but I remember him as a Colonel when he was 1st Brigade 24th ID commander at Ft. Stewart. I was a battallion Command Sergeant Major's driver and I remember him being a boisterous foul mouthed commander who was hard on soldiers, hard on NCOs, and harder on officers. I had three brigade commanders after him and none of them left half the impression he did. He was everywhere usually bitching out some Sgt. Major, Lt. Colonel or Major. The only thing I really noticed different about him in Katrina was that he didn't cuss as much as when he was a Colonel.

They did in Ohio back in 1970. I wouldn't go so far as to say they won't. They have before and they can very well do it again 'under orders'.
