    From The article:

    "Understand, this is not coming from Alex Jones or Jesse Ventura, or from anyone else the left often dismisses with great ease.

    Garrow is a well-respected activist and has spent much of his life rescuing infant girls from China, babies who would be killed under that country's one-child policy. He was also nominated for Nobel Peace Prize for his work."

    I looked at his Facebook page...he is a birther. Dismissed.

    Military leaders that will or wont really isnt the question. The question is will the actual troops with the weapons do so if ordered too. I have enough respect for our men and women in Uniform to believe the great majority will not obey an obviously illegal order.

    Can we please vet this article and its claims for veracity before spreading it around? And I mean Garrow's claims. With only unnamed sources, his article carries no weight.

    I don't even consider this a real article since it is coming from a tabloid website.

    Surely military leaders being shown the door would speak up if this were true?

    Haven't read the article, and doubt I will, but sadly in regards the question above, two words... Kent State.

    Being a Marine i know that the officer or whoever giving me the order to fire upon fellow Americans would get the first bullet.

    Just why I ask myself do folks even read and furthermore post an article that is so inflammatory when there is no sources named. I mean, how many times do we go down this road, folks start getting into conspiracy theories, and the thread gets warped into who is wearing the most tinfoil.

    I might as well start a thread that says JFK was shot by Big Foot and unkown government sources confirm it.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    Well, Obama actually got one! Stupid stupid stupid. Whoever wrote the article needs to brush up on debataing skills.

    Except that JKF actually was shot by Big Foot under orders from the face on Mars.

    Being well old enough to vividly recall the event, and having at the time followed all the investigations, it has never
    been clear to me if that was "ordered" or a grand screw-up of the sort that happens when folks get scared, or get
    too big for their britches.

    It is sort of not a very good example of what real troops would or would not do. Pointing to Kent State is a bit
    like pointing to Abu Ghraib as the norm and the expected. Stuff happens. That doesn't make it the norm.

    If, and its a big if, this were true, I'd say there might be grounds for impeachment right there. Certainly explains the bizarre behavior of Obama. Perhaps he is mentally unstable. Who knows really.
