There is a movie that came out a few years ago with Sean Connery & Wesley Snipes called Rising Sun.
In the movie, Snipes takes Connery into the really bad part of town and explains to him that "The Hood Creatures" are probably America's Last Home Grown Resource.
I feel that the writers missed the mark. I think the American "Good Old Boy" is going to ALWAYS be the final, last and probably most effective line of defense.
They are very loyal to their friends, family and coountry. They have a lot of time on their hands, they can work on anything, they are VERY smart when it comes to things that interest them. They hunt, shoot, fish, trap, track, evade and there is no real way to "infiltrate" them.
This is just another example in my Doctorial Thesis.
