A US Marine writes a warning to those calling for Civil War in the US. He says it is an article he wishes he didn't have to write. He wants those calling for an uprising to stop and think.

He also says that Marines are ready to defend the Constitution. That those calling for Civil War have no idea how tough the marines are, what its like to be scramble from semi-automatic fire, or to face other weaponry of war. Not only that, he points out those calling for the civil unrest are out of shape. Not like those that will be sent in to kill them.

The Marine writes in 'An Article I wish I would never have to write-To those calling for a civil war, this Marine wants you to stop, and think'

.... There are no second chances, no time for regrets, and no do-overs. This is not Call of Duty.

Now I 'd like to disperse a myth here - many of you think that US military would not fight civilians. I can't speak for all, but in my case - the moment you declare civil war, you're no longer civilians. The moment you attack the constitution, you're now enemies of that constitution. And I swore to defend and support and if necessary give my life for that Constitution and utilize every tool, technique, and weapon at my disposal to do so. And trust me, I'm not alone.

I hope some of you heed my words and cool the rhetoric and focus on achieving your goals diplomatically instead of physically. It would never want to receive a frag order to Maryland, or North Dakota, or Texas, but it is an order I will follow no matter how much it pains me to do so.....Source: Newsvine

There is no name attached to the article but it does say he is a Sergeant. We really don't know if this is a from a real US Marine, or some sort of psy-ops ploy. But the supposed Marine makes some valid points on the military mindset and what would happen in a insurrection. The military will be used effectively against any outbreak of civil unrest.

There used to be something called Posse Comitatus which "prohibits most members of the federal uniformed services (today the Army, Air Force, and State National Guard forces when such are called into federal service) from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain "law and order" on non-federal property (states and their counties and municipal divisions) within the United States. (Source: Wikipedia)"equipment are used in protests and other civil demonstrations and disruptions. In any case, Posse Comitatus will not protect citizens from the American Military in case of a Civil War civil unrest. That act doesn't seem to apply anymore since the military and military
