I was refering to a non-violent cultural and economic invasion. I know our history. It was my attempt at satire!
Yes, if the Chinese army attempted to invade the continetial US I think that many of us who pratice the 2nd amendment would put up some resistance.
In fact I would stake my life on it!
Over the weekend though, President Obama cited a separate provision in the act to authorize his decision to sanction Iran over continuing rumors of a nuclear weaponry program.
In its brief history, it is not the first time the US has used the law.
Since President Obama approved the act on December 31, 2011, the US Supreme Court has already used the language in the legislation at least once to defend the continued imprisonment of an alleged terrorist held at Guantanamo Bay for the last nine years. Musa'ab al-Madhwani, a Yemeni national, has been behind bars at the Gitmo military prison since 2002 despite never being charged — and being called a model prisoner. Last month, however, the highest court in America used the NDAA to keep him locked up indefinitely, citing that any suspicion of affiliation with terrorism-aligned insurgency was enough to keep him locked up for life.
Iran does not need nukes. Iran is not a random target for the US or Israel.

Invaded? People forget , if a country invades , they will have already annihilated most population centers in the United States.
There is no mass communication , only hand-held radios to the few people who keep broadbands in their home. These are easily jammed on civilian frequencies.
If we get invaded , we will be literally living in the stone age - with rifles and very limited ammo.
I suggest you hide if we get invaded. You will be killed and there is nothing honorable about it. Did i mention dieing generally hurts and you take your family with you?

I have a question (slightly) related to the thread.
1. This Executive Order, can the POTUS do this without any approval from congress/senate?
2. Are there limits to what he can put in an executive order?
3. Are there limits to how many EO's he can make on his own?
4. I suppose what I am really asking (and also with a possible President change coming soon) is can the POTUS act on his own to get his ideas through?
Example. Ron Paul wants to get rid of the Fed,
5. can he do this off his own bat?
