    You obviously never served.

    Besides there is this little law called Posse Comitatus. I would love to see it changed for certain restricted areas near the borders.

    There is a law that prevents the US Armed Forces from being used to protect the United States from invading foreigners?

    There is a law , which Ollie names, which prevents US military forces from operating within US borders, yes. The Coast Guards are permanently exempt, and the National Guard does not fall under the law, but regular military , yes.

    Too bad all our National Guard troops are in Iraq guarding their borders.

    I don't know that I think the military should be there, but at the very least the border patrol should be militarized in both their training and their weaponry.

    Yes, but how many times has the law been broken? Anybody remember Rodney King and the use of US troops in LA?

    A summary of key exceptions to the Posse Comitatus Act follows:

    • National Guard forces operating under the state authority of Title
    32 (i.e., under state rather than federal service) are exempt from
    Posse Comitatus Act restrictions.

    • Pursuant to the presidential power to quell domestic violence,
    federal troops are expressly exempt from the prohibitions of
    Posse Comitatus Act, and this exemption applies equally to
    active-duty military and federalized National Guard troops.

    • Aerial photographic and visual search and surveillance by military
    personnel were found not to violate the Posse Comitatus
    Act.

    • Congress created a “drug exception” to the Posse Comitatus Act.
    Under recent legislation, the Congress authorized the Secretary
    of Defense to make available any military equipment and personnel
    necessary for operation of said equipment for law enforcement purposes. Thus, the Army can provide equipment, training, and expert military advice to civilian law enforcement agencies as part of the total effort in the “war on drugs.”

    • Use of a member of the Judge Advocate Corps as a special assistant
    prosecutor, while retaining his dual role in participating in
    the investigation, presentation to the grand jury, and prosecution,
    did not violate Posse Comitatus Act.

    • The Coast Guard is exempt from Posse Comitatus Act during
    peacetime.

    • Although brought under the Act through DoD regulation,
    described above, the Navy may assist the Coast Guard in pursuit,
    search, and seizure of vessels suspected of involvement in drug
    trafficking.
