i enjoyed reading the comments more than the article. don't get me wrong, i thought the article was great. but the comments were funny. those people who think all those hunters have no effect on our national security and keep foreign invaders out.
like someone said, i think oceans do keep SOME foreign invaders out. not all. look at russia.. all they have to do is cross a small straight and roll through alaska and canada. if china wanted to do the same thing, i'm sure russia would have no problem turning their backs and let china roll through russia to do the same. the saudi's did turn their back to let israelis attack baghdad. so whats to stop russia from letting china do the same. especially if russia wanted to join them. however, alaska is in a very stratigic location and i think canada would be a nice buffer zone in which most of the war would wage.
but my point is, i would like to think hunters are very pro america being that we are one of the few countries that lets people own guns... and if there ever came a time to defend america on our own soil, they would be more then obliged to rise to the occasion. and if they did so, as shown in afghanistan, its not technology that wins wars. its resources and people. its hard fighting terrorists because of their unconventional fighting and lack of uniforms. i would imagine fighting our hunters would be similar.
my opinion, meaning almost nothing, i don't think it will ever happen though. unless our guns were taken away. effectively voiding the whole entire point of having hunters defend this country.
