I do what is required of me within the confines of my particular set of skills. I only follow lawful orders. Using the power of the military is not a
lawful order if your target is your own people.
I'm glad you posted that. Although I didn't mention it in my post, I firmly believe that the American people have absolutely nothing to fear from
our men & women in uniform - i.e. our Military (capital M - noun). In fact, if the sh#t does hit the fan, I would want as many of them around to
stand shoulder to shoulder with as possible.
It is the militarized (small "m" - verb) "civilians" of our various law enforcement agencies that have begun to give me the shivers. Just look
around - you'd almost have to be willfully blind not to see it.
And I come from a family of cops. Multiple members and multiple generations on both sides of my family were on the job. All but 1 have since
retired, and you should hear what they have to say about this - they make me look like a choir boy.
The one thing that does concern me regarding our Military is in the event they (or worse, the National Guard) are called upon in a domestic situation
the potential for a catastrophic mistake is extremely high. All it would take is for one moron in the crowd to throw a rock or bottle and one nervous
service person who's gripping the trigger too tightly and you'd have a riot/massacre on your hands. And unlike Kent State, in today's
interconnected world of instant news/video etc., it would spread like wildfire. In fact, if the PTB were engineering this, I'm sure that is exactly
what they'd be counting on. Then they could look glum and shake their heads saying "What a tragedy. In order to prevent further tragedies we have
instituted the following (insert martial law / dictatorial edicts here). Have no fear, everything will be OK..."
I recognize the above is a an extreme scenario and my ATS/Conspiracy hat may be screwed on too tight but sometimes the warning signs are too loud to
Orwell's "1984" or John Titor's civil war here we come...
