    I'm curious who it is they expect to be fighing. I mean if it's to combat the inevitable result of pulling out of Iraq and the jihadists who will turn their focus here then I suppose that makes some degree of sense, although I would think equipping the FBI to do this job seems more sensible. If it's to have better control of the public then that's BS. I'm sure there are supporters of both intentions.

    I wonder who these troops would answer to and what role they might have in day-to-day law enforcement... it could be useful to local LEO's but the reality is they'll be misused and we'll end up with dozens of people killed in no-knock raids, etc.

    Not to mention the obvious, this being an ideal force to handle a mass-disarming of the general population...

    But to be honest this really doesnt concern me that much as most of these "troops" are CST

    hopefully you don't get the one that his crew dropped off the crane....and having the ass end of an F16 sticking out of my front yard would be pretty rad.
