    The US Military will shatter if ordered into US Cities against US Citizens unless a catastrophic event causes it. The Military will not enforce Martial law simply because some President orders it. NDAA or NO NDAA.

    Such a move would cause a civil war to erupt, with some units following orders while others did not. And even among the Units trying to follow orders there would be desertion and sabotage. With troops and Officers refusing to comply.

    The event that would not shatter the Military would have to be Country wide for a Country wide Martial law to be followed. Even local events would have to be so catastrophic that the Military could not see the National Guard handling it successfully.

    I am a Delusional Paranoid that does not trust the Government but I spent 16 years in the Marine Corps and studied lots of military history. There is no way the Military enforces Martial law with out something being so catastrophic they feel there is no other way. Even then I suspect some dissent would occur.

    I dunno we have lots more foreigners in the military now who joined as a fast track to citizenship.

    Why would someone from American Samoa care about shooting up Peoria?

    Aslo an all voluntary military is different from a drafted one.

    Remember we used our military on citizens several times in our history.
    The civil war kinda stands out.
    Troops against union strikes, etc.
    Heck the president even ordered a bombing strike on striking coal miners once.

    Really?

    How do you know the sheeple won't knuckle under, just like they handed over all their gold to FDR?

    How do yo know that your nosey-assed Gladys Kravitz neighbor won't finger you as a "right wing extremist"?

    NAAAAAHHHH!
    ...That'll NEVER happen in America! :rolleyes:

    How many officers and Joe Blow troops ran roughshod over the WWI vets trying to get their due?

    Not that many. And it was a different time. The DC protest was a very small part of the Army.

    Uh-huh...Sure.

    "That was a different time" is a classic lolberal fallback excuse.

    is lolberal part of a trifecta with gubmint and sheeple?

    if it isn't, it definitely deserves to be.

    lolbertarian has a nice ring to it, though
