That is the thing, US forces are not welcomed by the general populace to operate on US soil.
The un/nato NEVER will be welcomed other than by a hail of gunfire.
We have seen what they do, they are never there to simply rescue a peoples.

I think you're right. I'm guilty of it, too. The only parts I remember is peeing in the radiator, Russians parachuting from the sky and shooting up a whole high school, and them screaming "Wooooolverrrrriiiiiines!!!!"

Aside from that, I think most people just remember the bits and pieces where Charlie Sheen was "winning" against the Soviets while Swayze and Jennifer Gray were dirty dancing their way past enemy lines.

The Department of Homeland Security ordered 450 million 40 caliber hollow point bullets. Sounds like a Red Dawn to me.

40 caliber pistol bullets aren't going to do anything but get a lot of homeland security people killed.....pistols in a war are about like bringing a knife to a gun fight if they are matched up against Riffles & Shotguns....

They can't even find a viable enemy to make the movie believable, so I don't think there is much chance of it happening in real life!
When hollywood can't even make the plot work, I don't think we have much to worry about. I bet they miss the Russians.

No. My best friend is Armenian, and he speaks fluent Armenian, Russian, English, and a lot of Spanish. Unfortunately I only speak English, and enough Spanish to get by in Miami or a few days in Mexico.

While I would agree in some aspects of that, it seems Hollywood has seemed to pull another rabbit from the hat, which should be hitting theaters in late November.

An updated remake of Red Dawn, starring Chris Hemsworth (should make my wife, Isabel Lucas and Josh Hutcherson. I guess the enemy this go round is going to be the North Koreans… hmmm.. not sure how that’s going to work but should be entertaining to watch nonetheless.

Incase anyone is interested:

Yep. They had to digitally alter the movie, because it was shot with enemy being China, but they had to fix it to North Korea so they could sell movies in China.

I hope it is a good movie, but the premise of NK attacking the US on US soil seems pretty far-fetched to me. The Russians were just such a better bad guy!

At least China would be a plausible invading army. I think the studio wimped out in this decision... NK? Really? You've got to be kidding.....

If foreign troops can get all the way into Colorado without being noticed, me thinks something is wrong.

It's too hot here in Arizona and dry. They wouldn't last long here.

Paratroopers could land here but in about 3 days we would have Russian weapons in our possession.That would make the cops angry though.

This is almost off topic, but it does concern the movie Red Dawn.

For all the chemtrail folks out there I advise you to watch Red Dawn and observe those contrails that you think are always supposed to disappear in a minute or two. Remember the part where the airforce pilot gets shot down? There are contrails from horizon to horizon.

As for an invasion of the US mainland I just cannot envision it. They just don't have the naval strength. Look up their naval fleets, divided between the North , Pacific, Baltic, and Black Sea. It is waay pathetic. Their northern fleet (the biggest by far) has one light carrier and about 16 other combatants, not including corvettes. A corvette is comparable to a US coast guard cutter. OK, some of them are a little bigger but not much. I just don't see the Ruskies projecting their power over here without the US military somehow stopping them. I would think we could arm a couple hundred crop dusters or put our WWII show planes back into service and atleast give that carriers little airwing a run for its money.

Heck yeah, that was an awesome movie and it could be even better in a remake.
I hope the remake becomes reality!!

I don't know if it could happen the way it does in the movie, but there are many scenarios where something like it could happen. I actually find it more plausible that the U.S. government could allow it to happen if it were in TPTB's interest to have something like that happen. Even if that weren't the case, a great many things are possible. I don't rule it out, because it would just be arrogance to think we are immune. Once we think we are untouchable, then we are vulnerable.

Having said all that, I actually really liked the movie when I watched it as a teen. The Wolverines being teens themselves, I related to the storyline. It was a bit scary for me to imagine such a thing happening in reality. Being a girl, I especially hated to think about why Toni (I think that was her name) was the way she was. Sad fact that women suffer in a different way than men in war situations.

An initial invasion is pretty plausible....but the real challenge an enemy would face is the same reason that allowed the USA to become a dominant superpower in the first place....

Geographic isolation.

Logistically, supporting a US invasion would be nearly impossible. Any force would have to cross an ocean, really opening that supply train up to attack. Long range air drops would be an answer, but would require a massive escort (or mass amounts of stealth aircraft).

It's funny that the only military equipped to invade and hold US territory is its own military. But, it makes sense, as we face the same challenge if we are to invade elsewhere. However, our solution is carriers, and multiple global military bases of operation. Not to mention the hordes of stealth aircraft (far more than we say we have).

In any US invasion, the battle would be decided in the ocean, vs. on land, as to whether or not the supply line can be established.

That's a good point. But what about if they could use Mexico or Canada? That's a possibility maybe? I don't know.
