46. "many militia types are actual combat veterans." I would like to see the numbers on that. And
secondly, being a combat veteran is not the same as leading men into combat. And it appears to me that most of those militia types are rather old guys so if they have seen actual combat it was quite a while ago, meaning they are out of shape and out of practice, all of their little maneuvers in the woods not withstanding.

There will be no "large scale uprising" so any talk about street fighting is just talk.

Any McVeigh style attack will have a huge negative effect on militia organizing, just as it did in the 1990s.

The U.S. Military is too well trained to "fracture into smaller opposing units." It won't happen. Anyone who steps out of line will be face court martial, just like the birther dude.
