An American Thought Experiment

BlogsCanada points me to How to Save the World, where one Dave Pollard asks his readers to turn the tables:


Suppose that some time in late 2000, Russian and Chinese leaders, with the covert support of some other national leaders, were convinced that the US election results had been materially altered by a small right-wing clique, and that as a result the US was in fact no longer a democracy, and its weapons of mass destruction, now apparently in the hands of an unelected, psychopathic and illegitimate group of radical religious extremists, posed an imminent threat to world peace.

He raises fair and articulate questions about how the American people would respond to an occupying army, UN-led or not.
