Case in point. NorthCom has now fielded a single brigade combat team.
OK. So the guvmint now has some troops here in CONUS. Big deal. Do you think that this unit is going to be able to do anything of note?
Jeez Louise folks, we can't even manage pacify a pissant country like Iraq with 4+ combat divisions and more mercenaries than you can shake a stick at. We are supposed to be afraid of a single 5,000 member group that is made up of good god-fearing rednecks like the rest of us?
I think that we ought to keep things in perspective here folks. This is most likely not a big deal and I doubt if the troops in the 3rd would allow themselves to be used to repress anything here in the States.
Keep you powder dry and worry about the important shit.
