    I can see why

    I can see why you are ot a fan of the website - it is written like the guy is off his meds. Seriously off his meds.
    The only things missing was the UFO part.

    As for the question posed.

    Yes, they will.

    The history of the uS has shown this to be a fact, so why wonder?

    There is this -http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/snprelief4.htm
    A month later, on July 28, Attorney General Mitchell ordered the evacuation of the veterans from all government property, Entrusted with the job, the Washington police met with resistance, shots were fired and two marchers killed. Learning of the shooting at lunch, President Hoover ordered the army to clear out the veterans. Infantry

Eisenhower served as his liaison with Washington police and Major George Patton led the cavalry. By 4:45 P.M. the troops were massed on Pennsylvania Ave. below the Capitol. Thousands of Civil Service employees spilled out of work and lined the streets to watch. The veterans, assuming the military display was in their honor, cheered. Suddenly Patton's troopers turned and charged. "Shame, Shame" the spectators cried. Soldiers with fixed bayonets followed, hurling tear gas into the crowd.

    You might want to relook at your 'heros' of WWII. Deep in the throes of the Depression, it was a bad time all around. Wobblies had been causing problems around the same time.

    But if you think you can mass, and then ignore an order to leave - don't be shocked at the results.

    The likelihood of a occurrence is low, but history can be instructive, it can also be deadly if the lessons learned are missed.

    Fortunately the old Aristocratic Army officer corps of old is long gone. The worry of a senior military officer anxious to curry favor with politicians still remains.

    You might want to look up the history of the WHY the posse comitatus Act was passed in the first place. You may be surprised, as that bit of history rarely makes it into the schoolbooks.

    According to the situation but basically YES. They will follow orders. Some may fire to miss but would not count on it.

    We had it bad here in the US. They had it far worse in Europe owing to the damage from WWI. We saw how that turned out.

    When times are hard, and the local Government (anywhere) has failed or has lost its way, you are looking for the same conditions to appear again.

    Banditry (remember John Dillenger etal)(gangs today)

    Mass migration of population (Oakies)(immigration today)

    Corruption in local and state governments. As some seek power, the levers of Government are a tempting target - see
    1946 battle of Athens, Tennessee

    Currency manipulation (all of them now)

    Tax oppression - and mass cheating. (Greeks pay taxes?)

    So, a study of history can be instructive to a person preparing. History may not repeat itself, but the echos of past problems are still seen today.

    And what if those around you are shooting at us...on which side do you join in?

    Are you going to be with them when they come to take guns and preps? To put down resistance to unconstitutional acts by the fedgov?

    To see what extent US servicemen will do to their fellow countrymen, we need to look no farther than the Civil War itself. Their are plenty of documented cases where Union troops fired on and killed civilian non-combatants. Southern Heritage 411

    There is another side to this coin---would we fire on our own soldiers? I could not and would not unless there was no way out.
