Question from abroad about the US militarySubmitted by Fabio on Fri, 09/26/2008 - 13:55
I`ve got a question, I`m not American and I live in Germany.
You Americans spend a lot of money on those wars in Irak, Pakistan and all the place where US citizen in uniforms and under military command by a bunch of criminals spend their time right now.
I`m very concerned about the US and I learned to love the country through the Ron Paul movement. I feel kind of like an American. I like the original idea of what it used to mean.
My question is:
Wouldn`t it be possible for the US army to revolt?
I mean, they are supposed to protect you guys, aren`t they?
I`m sure they are 99% really great guys who love their country.
Would it be possible to contact many soldiers by family members and ask their fathers, brothers and sons to come back home?
Is there any chance? How bad must things get that it becomes imaginable that for once in a while the US army will do something really important and sane?
What does happen, if your government imposes some kind of martial law?
Would the US army come and help its fellow citizen?
Some kind of resistance like the Germans who tried to get Hitler?
I mean, the enemy is in Washington, not Bagdad.
Or would the soldiers never doubt that their government is right and obey the orders like most of the German soldiers did?
Best whishes to all the Paulites!
