OR -- what if a bunch of these survivalists was to attempt a massive coup against the US government? Would we be able to suppress it? We always assume that terrorism will come from some Muslim fanatic in the Middle East. We always assume that violent coups only occur in countries far away. Are we prepared for the fanatics who are citizens in the US?

I had a opportunity back in the 80's to be working with a crew of "survivalists" Sometime during that period, the SKS rifle was selling in Salt Lake City for a hundred bucks and some change. These guys were buying them and ammo like it was gold. Preparing for an internal battle in the USA. Yea, it was something to behold.

Originally posted by utherpendragonI think we are seeing how fast our army can be deployed. Take the latest troop build-up in Afgahnistan? Almost makes my head spin, how quickly we were able to jump on that, and then send roughly 2/3rd of what the commander on the ground requested. Please check, Obama meets with McCrystal for 30 minutes on the tarmac.... what a dam shame.

The best! And could many times larger at a moments notice if need be.
Dont ever doubt the U.S. military

I am not doubting the US Military, if they made their own decisions, and ran the game like it should be, I agree. But the talking heads in D.C. seem throw the brakes on.
