slo ko - Civilians manufacture military weapons in civilian owned factories that are under government contract. If the shit hit the fan there would be lines outside these places gearing people up.

The militia wouldn't necessarily be organized, but that could work in its favor since there'd be no command and control for the enemy to take out.

Not to mention there are 5 million 12-16 year olds practicing for this on Modern Warfare 2 right now, which is a ready response force larger than the top 4 militaries in the world combined. They might not be soldiers, but I've seen what they can do with a noob tube.


you realize most of these kids cant run more then half a mile? Reality would hit them pretty hard when they found out they couldnt even carry a rifle, let alone a full combat load.

With over 1,500 "Fred Villari's Studios of Self-Defense" franchise locations, I say "NO F-ING WAY!"

Any invading force would be met with a veritable "wall" of Shaolin Kempo Karate.

Brit's conquered and held down over 200 million in India, and they kept it conquered for over a century.

Were protected by 2 oceans,logistically they wouldnt have a place to setup,the biggest part of war is preparation and establishing your presence along various borders.I think the days of superpower vs superpower warfare are over and done with,now with a global economy,most countries who have the money to support a strong military,rely to much on exporting and what not.UN sanctions would basically break theyre economy and they probably couldnt continue to finance theyre military for more then a couple years

Of course this would never happen: China+India+Russia has no chance against the US military. Rest of the world, possibly. Then it would go nuclear, bye, bye world.

Anyway, the US is armed too well, the occupiers would get massacred.

Paintball - "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." - Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto (Japanese Navy)
 

Misquoting Yamamoto

May 11, 2009
 

Advocates of gun rights often argue that in World War II Japan was deterred from invading the U.S. mainland by a fear of American citizens with guns in their closets. They frequently quote Japan's Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto as saying: "You cannot invade mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass."

But this quote is unsubstantiated and almost certainly bogus, even though it has been repeated thousands of times in various Internet postings. There is no record of the commander in chief of Japan's wartime fleet ever saying it.

How do we know? We contacted Donald M. Goldstein, sometimes called "the dean of Pearl Harbor historians." Among his many books are "The Pearl Harbor Papers: Inside the Japanese Plans" (1993) and the best-selling "At Dawn We Slept: The Untold Story of Pearl Harbor" (1981). He is a professor at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh. He told us the supposed Yamamoto quote is "bogus."

In an exchange of e-mails he said:


Prof. Goldstein: I have never seen it in writing. It has been attributed to the Prange files [the files of the late Gordon W. Prange, chief historian on the staff of Gen. Douglas MacArthur] but no one had ever seen it or cited it from where they got it. Some people say that it came from our work but I never said it. ... As of today it is bogus until someone can cite when and where.


We included this in an update to an Ask FactCheck item we posted May 10, debunking an error-filled "gun history lesson" circulating by e-mail.

We make no argument either for or against gun ownership.  But we do object to fabricating quotes and passing them off as historical fact.

quantity often beats quality. massive # of troops > better equipped/technologically superior

but what really interesting to me was recently someone posted a thread about the draft and so many mofers here were screaming about how it would never fly and was unconstitutional, etc.

we better hope we dont get invaded cause a lot of these beeotches will be arguing legal points as tanks roll through the town square (synonym: the mayor on Red Dawn)

Tidbits - All of the survivalists, internet wannabe revolutionaries. wannabe red dawn imitators etc etc would shit their pants & run crying to their mommies as soon as they saw the first troops. Would there be pockets of resistance? Sure, but overall, the VAST majority of this country would fall in line under their new govenors without a peep. Believe it. Americans no longer have the will or the balls to fight.

 LOL @ This bullshit.



LOL @ u believing in pipe dreams.

I wonder what kinds of things former EOD and current EOD guys would come up with.  Lets not forget about the large amounts of engineers we have in several types of technologies.

I would think it would be much more well planned and looking at what the dirt people of Iraq can do with their own IED's - we'd have shit that would create small craters on any path the invading force would travel.

First off the Chinese can't fight worth a shit. In the 70's they had a border war with vietnam and even though the chinese outnumbered them 10-1 they lost. If Truman had not been such a pussy MacArthur would have nuked them in the Korean war and that would have been the end of them. We tend to play by the rules when occupying foreign nations but if enemys set foot to our soil there is not going to be any rules of engagement. The liberals will bitch about it but fuck them.

This is a scenario that many have theorized about and it involves Cuba as the staging ground for Russian/Chinese/Muslim invasion.

Word has it that Cuba is stockpiled with weapons ready to arm would be invaders through Miami.
