John Lott points out that our soldiers are sitting ducks – when on any military installation.

He is absolutely right about this.  Not much of a surprise, however.  The average civilian would probably be stunned to find out how much the military treats its people as children and idiots.  The brass sees no incongruity between using our soldiers – as cannon fodder, if necessary – to defend the nation and allowing the soldiers absolutely no means to defend themselves.

There are stories told about Vietnam, that I have no reason to doubt, where Viet Cong would throw grenades and other explosives over the fence onto a military base, but the guards were forbidden to shoot at them.  Why?  Well, it seems the Cong wasn’t actually trying to enter the base, so they were not to be deemed as targets.
