Continuing the discussion on the Civilian National Security Force Obama wants to build, guests former Army Staff Sgt. David Bellavia, author of “House to House” and an Iraq war vet, and Matt Spalding of the Heritage Foundation, were on to discuss and ponder the need of a civilian security force and just who they would be “fighting.” Bellavia has an interesting comparison (not equivalence) between a group loyal to the Iraqi State and not the country or the people, that Saddam’s Fedayeen were for his rule in Iraq. The parallels are striking, and only a military person who helped topple Saddam’s regime could understand it.
Why would Obama want a civilian force just as powerful and as well-funded as the U.S. Military to protect our “national security?” From enemies foreign or domestic? And who decides for this group (presumably AmeriCorps as the umbrella organization) who they’re going to fight to defend our national security?
More questions than answers, and we need more answers. STAND UP! Ask questions, and don’t give up until you get an answer.
