If the army showed up at your door, it would be a violation of international law. Now if you happened to live in an area that we have claimed is a battlefield, then everything is thrown out the window...Again, why we are throwing our hands up screaming foul.
this is no joke it is for real the bill passed, is now waiting for votes in the House
American rights activists have slammed the US Senate for gearing up to vote on a bill on Monday that would define the whole of the United States as a 'battlefield' and allow the military to arrest American citizens in their own back yard without charge or trial.
ok so it is the ACLU but the law reads as the law reads
The reactions comes after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said last week that “the senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president-and every future president - the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. The power is so broad that even US citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.”
you do see the part world wide? here it is if you missed it
Under the 'worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial' provision of S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which is set to be up for a vote on the Senate floor Monday, the legislation will “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield,” said South Carolina's left-wing Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who supports the bill.
yes folks this says the US gov can come get you anywhere anytime in the world with out warrant for "Acts of Hostile or Belligerent manner or giving aid to its enemy's" towards the US or its Allies or the citizens or the US note how they left out citizens of allies
Under the 'worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial

We talking about violating the Posse Comitatus act, it depends if you have a problem with that or not -- I do. The president has promised to veto it - I hope he does.

Oh yes they can, if you are seen giving aid in any form or fashion to a person deemed as a terrorist under this new bill they can definately detain you or even kill you as a enemy comnbatant and that goes for american citizens too.
This bill is more or less aimed directly at the american people as an attempt to thwart "home grown terrorism" and makes the United States itself a part of the battlefield. Under this bill it authroizes the military to do all of the above without consent and it nullifies the due process system and it makes the head of the military (the president) Judge, Jury and Executioner. Under this bill you have no rights at all. This bill is the first major step towards martial law, which will come next and come soon. This is what it looks like when a totalitarian government begins to take power and assert its tyrannical grip on not just it's own people, but the entire world as well. that One World Government everyone is so scared of the Anti-Christ instituting? It's just about here and this "war on terrorism" is ushering it in. This is how "He" gets a foothold.
