Ok Ill try to keep the lead in short...but you know me. I spend friday night in a cheep hotel in Tampa..going to see the vA hospital sat morning...nothing to do so fliped chanles and came accross a History Channel..or A&E on the Militia...Now I dont know anyone in the Militia nor ever had so much as a conversation with anyone I would call a credible source. So MY impresion of the Militia and members is based purely on the indepth research and unbias reporting of what I seen on TV. Based on this I had the following observations: 1. Asside from the Mossouri 51st (They must have a good PR person) all the people the TV showed were either fat old white guys dressed in BDUS, web gear and carring AR-15 showeing how they practice patrols ect.. and not doing a vary good job of it. Or Neo Nazie skin heads talking about white (black) what ever power and their plans to over throw the goverment and create a perfect system. 2. The groups all seemed to be only 10 to 20 members..seemed to always meet in some guys tool shed like school boys with a No Goverment agenst allowed sign hangin on the door. 3. They talked about how the groups/members were paranoid of being spyed on by the goverment (then played govemnet tapes taken from telephone taps). 4. The group members kept talking about how their group would save, over through, defend what ever America in case of invasion ect.. Now that seemed silly for 20 people to think they could stop a goverment agency (ours or someone elses). 5. Finaly if you are..want to be.. what ever part of a group that is afraid the goverment is watching you...then why go on national TV running your mouth.... Also why would someone want to join a group that is gaurenteed to get thir name placed on a whole lot of list with a lot of goverment agencies..and none of them good. So based on this My impression is that Militia..joining..belonging..and the members.. seem like some silly school boy game of lets dress up in BDUs and play army.... Now I know no one with any sense would admit to being a member on a web site....or post like this... but does anyone have an opion on the Militia????
