    The point is that there's a weird inconsistency in the argument about big brudda, not that it would be nifty to make war against American civilians.

    But, since you mentioned it, notice anything different about, say, the rag-tag jungle and mountain villagers and Suburban red state Americans?  

    •  now that you mention it, I see some differences... (3+ / 0-)

      -Suburban red state Americans are Americans, the same nationality as the Military we're supposing is going in to stop them.

      -'Red State' implies some degree of conservatism, the same ideology held by a lot of cops and combat solders.  I don't remember us sending the military, sworn to uphold the constitution of the United States to fight conservatives supporting the constitution of the United States in Viet Nam, Afghanistan, or Iraq...

      -Attacking fellow Americans, from American bases, which require resupply from outside, whos soldiers often live off-base, whos extended familly lives off base, and whos retierees go on to live off base is not a recipe for success.
