    The idea of any nation out there being able to project the kind of force to effect even a minor invasion of an infinitesimal portion of the U.S. is kind of silly. But really - American Rednecks, working in concert with the U.S. military, on their Home Turf against EuroArmies, with no holds barred?
    NEWS FLASH: Americans would be EASILY made to fight each other, no euro armies necessary. take away food stamps, veterans benefits, unemployment, and let the UFC championship rated R begin

    Exactly, and those enemies are already being created out of people who care about this nation the most.

    Much easier than a country that cares about it's own people, obviously.

    you might get some rioting in the inner cities from the loss of food stamps. Maybe.

    Certainly the idea of society-threatening internal violence is (though still far from any kind of likelihood) more plausible than foreign conquest of the U.S. In the sense that getting hit by lightning 14 times while being attacked by a shark and winning the lottery is technically more likely than being abducted by an alien race desperate to make you their king.

    I'm also curious how he can claim in one breath not to care about the country because it abandoned him in 1913, and yet implicitly claim in the other to be one of those who care about the country most?

By militias?

    Living in the woods in America, I am not sure I have the freedom to say what I would do, especially after my dogs were shot a month ago, and I am not sure if I would refuse a local militia to fight against invaders either, because I would like to know who is taking over, and there would probably be no internet to research.
    Conditionally. If the war was prosecuted unjustly by the elite, they would have to answer for it, after or preferably before hostilities end. If not, then I would probably abstain. It's their country, let them defend it.

    If for whatever reason the United States started a world war justly, then I would serve.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Well I would wager I have probably followed those conflicts closer than you have, and so can rather dismiss the idea that awareness of our ineffective and insufficient activity in Syria would require refusal to partake.
    I will end our discussion by saying that I find it strange that you have a picture of Ben Franklin for your avatar, yet you advocate for US participation in foreign wars.
