Pentagon to Deploy 20,000 Troops by 2011
The pentagon plans to deploy 20,000 troops by 2011 to help local authorities respond to a nuclear terror attack or other catastrophes. One, are they expecting something they are not telling us? Two, I grew sick of the color of the day when I lived in NY. Is the alert red, orange, yellow or green? Three, is this a pretext for something else? While on some level, I felt "comfort" with the troops deployed in Manhattan and around the city, I also felt that it would have been more effective for those that were legal to carry somewhere in NY to be able to carry in the 5 Boroughs. Unfortunately, the sfacimes that run NYC do not recognize pistol licenses from anywhere but NYC, but getting a license in NYC is impossible unless you are a friend of the mayor or pay exorbitant amounts of money. If you are Howard Stern, Donald Trump, Robert DeNiro, Harvey Keitel, Michael Bloomberg, or Joan Rivers, but I digress. I have to wonder how Obama will do this when there is Posse Comitatas. Bush tried to modify it and was beaten back. Hopefully this will not come to pass.
