Notice the flag is backwards on the truck. "In wartime the flag is worn backwards to show advancement.. take the flag and put it on a flag-pole and run at the enemy.. it flies backwards"

Don't you think it would be the most stupid thing ever for the US to imprison its own people under Marshall law? literally the entire world would condemn it along with 99% of its military & leaders, its not even in the realms of fantasy, it more in the realms of total stupidity
Right on! Even if the US government could imprison all of us, where would they get the manpower to hunt all armed dissenters down? The People vastly outnumber all amount of troops the government could in fact put on the ground, and there is no guarantee they would be loyal to their masters. I think if the government really wanted to do this martial law lock everyone up thing, they would have done it a long time ago.
Next time you see one parked at a rest stop, ask the driver where he is taking it. Of course, that was probably the only time you will see one up close until they are rolling down the streets promoting law and disorder.
German army's crisis role widened
The German military will in future be able to use its weapons on German streets in an extreme situation, the Federal Constitutional Court says.
The ruling says the armed forces can be deployed only if Germany faces an assault of "catastrophic proportions", but not to control demonstrations.
The decision to deploy forces must be approved by the federal government.
Severe restrictions on military deployments were set down in the German constitution after Nazi-era abuses.
