A Quiz for all you super duper comment posters: What is Posse Comitatus?

North American Army created without OK by Congress
In a ceremony that received virtually no attention in the American media, the United States and Canada signed a military agreement Feb. 14 allowing the armed forces from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a domestic civil emergency, even one that does not involve a cross-border crisis.
Gen. Renuart affirmed USNORTHCOM would deploy U.S. troops on U.S. soil should the president declare a domestic emergency in which the Department of Defense ordered USNORTHCOM involvement.

The Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act limit the powers of the federal government useage of the military for law enforcement.

Oh and you wanted Bush to respond faster over Katrina...remember i warned you about this shit MT.

According to a former Fema associate director
John R. Brinkerhoff it limits or voids the use of military personnel from being called upon to enforce the law in the county without the authorization of the commander in chief. Marshals or sheriffs abused this law when they formed posses in the south. It doesn't bar the president or congress from using the military as such. Argues several branches of the military are not constrained under the act (but these branches didn't exist then). It is hard to tell. I am not a constitutional scholar and is very debatable.

Whats debateable is the limits to wich they canuse the military in such situations deemed neccesary.

To me its always the states responsibility.

I have previously stated my concern/fear of a North American Union. Now here we have the military of two of the countries involved in the sometimes existing sometimes not NAU, making what sounds a lot like a treaty without the governing bodies of the US side. I guess I should listen to you oh mighty Big Dog.

Are you only interested in tooting your horn and being belligerent toward me or does this concern you? I'm not certain, but I don't think Gen. Renuart answers to any state government. I am certain however that teh Canadian military doesn't. So, if the Canadians are called in by NorthComm and a governor or mayor objects, what law governs. I'd like to have a little more to go on but, in answer to the "what's your point?" question, there wasn't much coverage of it. Excepting of course the World Net Daily. A bunch of libs?

MTJ Whats the diffrents between this and NORAD Treaty the USA signed with Canada back in the 50's? That was anther agreement were Canada and US Military protected North America from Soviet Nuclear Attack. Don't get me wrong I don't want canadian tanks on my streets in my city.

He said OUR GOVT respond after Katrina...meaning Our government moving in Aid agencies and mobilizing relief efforts.

NOT what happened in katrina which was they mobilized military forces and BLOCKED aid efforts.

Just keep on believing that the US will put more military on the streets to keep you safe and when you have mexican troops sticking a gun barrel in your face telling you to give up your guns and medicate your kids don't wonder what happened to our nation.

Although usually considered working or farm animals, with extra care and attention goats can make good household pets, and are an excellent source of meat and milk. For most pure breeds, you can get the records of their bloodline from registering authorities or the AKC.
