    enough that there will be some question as to their dedication to a project that would be mounted against American citizens.  Of course, the reason why Bush has sent primarily National Guard Units and left his military apparatus largely in tact here in the States is something to ponder.  It is a frightening question as a good percentage of Governors would likely not allow their forces to be used against Americans while the Federally controlled military would have a Commander in Chief who has already proven that he doesn't mind.  To extend it out to its logical conclusion, the States' resources are at this time so depleated by Iraq that the National Guard would not be able to defend their states from either an external or god forbid an internal assault.  It is scary really scary.
