When all hell breaks loose here, the economy collapses and/or Bottom Up caused Top Down....what do you think is going to happen to our troops that are deployed to sand box hell holes ?
We have to be honest with ourselves and know what it means “when all hell breaks loose”.
First thing is the economy collapse: The dollar becomes worthless; the average person/family cannot buy supplies to support their self or family. Unemployment at an all time high and burglaries and looting is rampant. People not prepared are starting to die.
The Government is finally in a panic and doesn’t know what to do. If Obama is still in office he declares Martial Law and establishes curfews. All travel stops. Banks close and the Post Office no longer delivers mail. Everyone feels the shrinking sense of hope and depression sets in. More deaths occur. Hospitals no longer take regular patients and many close. Only those employed by the government have access to basic needs. They grab control of everything; gasoline is rationed, food purchases are made by allowance and only for those who have managed to keep some cash. All oil products will be mandated for government use first. Whatever they cannot control they outlaw. They start to seize all guns. Riots break out.
Shortages of all food items in all stores occur due to the lack of gasoline to make deliveries. The utilities may still be working if there are no outages due to breakage, accidents or acts of God. Depending on the time of year, people freeze, people have heat related emergencies. Water in some areas may be scarce. More riots are breaking out and more people die.
Forest fires burn unchecked, and relief for floods, tornadoes and hurricanes can no longer be had. In less than a month all government services will be shut down and the riots that have been plaguing the cities has moved to the rural areas. The gang bangers rule the night. Ambushes start to occur in broad daylight.
Call it poetic justice but only the elite that can afford security have any mobility and even that will end due to the amount of violence from the mobs. The movie industry collapses. All radio & TV are now propaganda tools of the government. The internet has been shut down. All communications become limited and under the control of the government.
All this and we have our military in Hell holes across the world and a government that may or may not want them to come home. It all depends on who is in control of the Government.
What do we do to have their backs?
This is not a post for people to jump to assumptions that our troops are going to come home shooting people. These troops are our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, moms, dads, husbands, wives, uncles, aunts, cousins............these men and women (troops) are our family - Not our enemy.
All off topic comments will be deleted from this point forward!!!
OK Folks, It seems no one willing or is capable of answering Twana's question. I have nibbled around the edges of it but as I read the comments it looks like it needs another approach.
ATTENTION!!! * NOW HEAR THIS!!! * WAKE UP!!!
This issue is so far under the radar the troops overseas will NOT be a priority when ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE (the SHTF) unless they are fully controlled to do as ordered, even fire on their brothers and sisters if so ordered. There is only one thing in my opinion that can be done to insure they get the attention that will be required at that time to get them home.
ASK the question, "How will they get home when the economy collapses?" to everyone you know and don't know. Get it out there that it is a concern of yours & your family. All Vets and all who have family members currently serving whether overseas or not (you never know when they will get that assignment) should be asking their Congressional do nothing and all of their family members. Get their support and have them start asking WHAT IF?. Start asking anyone that can put it in the media. Ask the question in your local "letters to the editor". Ask it on all the internet sites you frequent including Facebook. Anyone know a videographer that could produce a UTube video? If done ther right way it could go viral and force the MSM to ask the question also.
By raising awareness you will cause others to ask the same question. Besides as I said earlier THE FED MONITORS ALL PATRIOT SITES. Anything you can think up will cause the enemy (OUR CURRENT GOVERNMENT) to devise a strategy, a roadblock, if you will and most involved will find a residence change to one of those FEMA camps we have all heard about. As Clarence and others have said, get prepared yourself. How do you expect to help anyone if you are not and need help from all those in the same boat as you?
I think what Twana tried to tell you all, Strategy, Conjecture, and Planning does not belong in this Topic. Start your own and I wish you well and hope the Feds are merciful.
Semper Fi, phrowt

A concern I have held for a long time is this. If and when all Hell DOES break loose on our own soil, our troops overseas may be TRAPPED overseas and UNABLE to come back and help protect us! I simply do not want to believe that the majority of them will come home and under orders from Obama, shoot their fellow Americans; Something Obama plainly is NOT! I think it might be an idea to plant the thought in our active duty military to NOT re-enlist at this time, but rather come home and look after AMERICA'S interests, NOT Obama's, Not Karzi's, NOT Chavez', NOT Putin, NOT Sarkosi....NONE of those ungrateful, self-serving socialist, drug-dealing THUGS!
We can do a LOT to defend ourselves with simple items found in most Kitchens......
ARNIE, Nancy Battle, Professor Terry Lovell of Arizona and one THOMAS HUGHES and Several other Go Getters would help recruit
Richard.........Hold up..............don't do anything yet. We have to do this right. And instant action is not helpful.
they will be ordered to surender, then put in internment camps or be slaughtered, either way, obama and his cronies will betray them. they certainly dont want them coming back to the states ande joining the resistance.
Comforting to know - -WE ARE NOT OBAMA's CRONIES . But John, you make quite a point to think through. BHO and Co. want to insure complete control. If they extracted troops, might they not want to send them to an in termediate stopping off point? It wouldn't be Diego Garcia nor Australia, which is how I would route them. What would prompt BHO and Panetta to agree to something like that? Now if we had in custody a wanted international villaIn maybe that'd be leverage. But if BHO could do it his way he'd probably strand our forces somewhere in the mideast - -assuming he'd be disposed to extracting them to begin with.
Remember when b o gave his speech from Hawaii when he started off with it being good to be back home in Asia? Before he was through he promised to send troops to (I think it was Australia, someone please check for the speech?) he was mentioning the growing threat of China in the area and promised to increase our troop strength to help ward it off. I thought it weird at the time when it was he who ok'd the picture of Mao on the NY office building to celebrate Mao's anniversary of seizing power. Now, I'm wondering if this isn't to get troops there for the alliance between the OAS and Russia and China? Does anyone agree it might be their idea of a new Camp GITMO for American troops to be detained in?
Sorry, I don't believe this at all.
Kenneth, don't bet on it. At the end of WWII the US abandoned over 20,000 troops to the Russians as well as hundreds in Korea and Vietnam. The politicians for the most part don't care one whit about the troops and the pretender in the White House certainly doesn't.
My greatest concern for our troops is, "who is going to support them against combatant forces if the homefront is under a siege of arms and insurrection." I forsee a possibility that our troops are going to be left to fend for themselves while the home front sorts out its own controversies which will take an undetermined amount of time. Our infrastructure has a tendacy to move slowly at first when a conflict occurs. I hope and pray that this will not come to pass. Just more food for thought!
These are definitely responsible questions...and need some well thought out answers...
Jager, The cost of blood will very expensive if your wrong and we do nothing but just hope it turns out how it should.
If it breaks loose here and Obama decides to enact martial law then our troops overseas will stay overseas, that's why there are so many soldiers from other countries training here. They are the enemy we'll be fighting here. All we can do is help to protect the families of our military that are stuck overseas.
