    Didn't catch that on the news, I only saw a few minutes before work. I can only hope no one gets killed challenging those trying to keep order. The military has enough problems on their hands as it is.

    You can't detain someone without good cause. They need to be charged so they can be held for a proper trial at a later time.

    Anyone ever seen The Siege?
    If martial law is what it takes to restore order and a sense of restrainment, then so be it. I just hope to god they don't abuse their position of power...

    And you've got me wrong man. It wasn't even about the charging. It was the idea of people being tried secretly and quickly sentenced. And I won't enter political waters by commenting on holding people without charge...

    sorry, ran off on a tangent........

    i guess what i've been trying to say all along is that none of this behavior shocks me. i've always known that if something like that were to happen in my neighborhood, you'll find me at my front door with my shotgun in hand.

    That is exactly where they are. They aren't scheduled to get back for a few more months.

    Dang, I didn't want to get started, but doesn't the name "United States National Gaurd" Somehow imply that they should be GAURDING THE NATION OF THE UNITED STATES!!!!

    I couldn't agree with you more Shades. I have a friend in the ANG here in NC who is in a "non-deployable" unit. He is a range control officer. He has already served a year in Iraq and is possibly going back.

    So much for "non-deployabe."

    This is NOTHING like what happened at the beginning of 2005 what so ever...

    Now let's take the classic Disney approach and all be friends

    I hope you did not misinterpret my post because I didn't intend it the way it may have sounded. I do wonder what life is like outside our borders and am concerned about what our media like to interpret. I agree we have more resourses. We are a truly blessed country. We do have a lot of resources. I just wondered what other countries were being told (glad to hear it actually) because we are so often blinded by ourselves.

    This is not anything like the devestation of last Christmas. Those people are still recovering and will be years for many areas.

    I am also concerned about how the tsunami and any hurricane effect the ecology but that is a whole other thread. It really is a changing earth. And I don't think you can blame global warming but that could be a whole other thread!

    Pass that bottle around!

    Somewhat the same as you guys with the National Guard going, but our TA (Territorial Army) are gearing for deployment in two weeks or so...

    SnwhtNdwrfs -
    I wasn't aiming it at you at all. In fact, that's why I went back and edited the original post, as I was scared you'd misinterperate it and come to think of it as an attack on you.
