interesting you say that. A few months ago while working on Ft. Leonerdwood we saw foreign troops training. I wonder how many other bases also have this happening.

I cannot imagine things would be so controlled afterwords, TPTB would rapidly loose whatever control they would have. Yes they have battle hardened systems but at some point these systems need to use civilian grade equipment and this is where things would breakdown.
Can you control x numbers that easily without modern forms of communcations, how would we know to assemble for our work duties without a radio or TV (or cellphone or the 'net etc)?

brokedown is right, and imagine if the troops were told that "other" troops were already killed by civilians, and that some organized resistance was possible!!!! You don't seem to understand how closed off communication can be in the military.
