Thank you for sharing your informed opinion on this. I did my six years in the guard and left, but I agree with much of your assessment. The dream of American soldiers disobeying lawful orders is exactly that, a dream. To be honest, I don't understand where that dream comes from, or why anyone would think such a thing might happen. Yet, I see it on all the gun channels as well as here. It's pure fantasy. Something people should think about: the vast majority of the armed forces are very young, impressionable ...quite frankly they're still kids. I know I was. They do not have the decades of life experience that many of us have now. If this happens, they will be told that they are fighting to defend the country from domestic terrorists. And they will believe it. I have thirty years of post military service life experiences. Thirty years of learning from experience and observation that government is not trustworthy. If I were in the guard today, I might be persuaded to throw down my M16 and take the jail sentence. I have also already lived the best years of my life, but a 19 year-old young man, with his whole life ahead of him, might think twice-if he considers it at all.
