Do you guys think teens in this country would be just like in the movie made in 84 or the remake? Or would they all still be eating their fast food and playing with their video games?

Shit, 25+ (not to date myself too much) years ago, I remember running around the neighborhood with the kids who's parents had let the watch that film. We all had our plan put together on how we were going to handle the Russian attack on AmeriKa...but keep in mind Nintendo hadn't hit the market yet, cable TV was for the wealthy, and much of Americas youth was still physically fit.

I think most that live and were raised in the country would, maybe 1\4 of urban raised might. Depends on how they were raised,values,morals,etc. Although without some form of basic training,they wont lasy very long...

Na they with along most of Americans would probably just end up killing each other in the panic of such an attack. Most deaths in the first 72 hours I expect would be from riots, people stealing from each other, ect.

Unless nukes are use or the invaders just shoot and kill every thing that moves.

When growing up in the 80's my friends and I would reenact the scene where they were chasing the girl through the field and we would pop out of our fox holes and all. Oh the good ole days!

A few weeks ago, I would have thought the same thing. But I went hunting with a co-worker last weekend and his son (9 years old) already knows how to run the WHOLE farm by himself. I didn't think kids like that existed any more.

There is hope.

Thanks to bad parenting and video games (modern warfare, black ops, battlefield) most boys as young as 10 are damn near battle ready. A few months tops with basic training and range practice and they're good to go. In a red dawn scenario it wouldn't take long for them to apply their gaming skills to the real world. The violence and realism of these games has already prepared them mentally.

Yes, the majority of you are underestimating something called "instinct". It is in our blood, they would rise up and fight - if for anything, their own survival. But I think there would be many selfless youth who would fight for the sake of protecting others as well.

My kid and his buddies would, but they are all homeschooled farm kids. Kids that ride, rope, buck hay, and don't facebook. Most of these kids from GenY, Millennials, and GenX would capitulate so fast Moscow would be able to import Vodka fast enough.

You can thank their hippy, liberal, boomer parents for the demise of the USA. They raised us to be vacuous, so most of us are!

Land in Compton.
Land in Skid Row.
Land in West Chicago.
Land in Blood Alley.
Land in Detroit.
Land in Southern GA.
Land in anywhere in the Southern U.S. [RedNecks]

Suburbanites would be of no use, but if there is anything that can get the rural and urban youths to unite, it's a bunch of stupid jackasses for nowhere trying to take their possessions and land away.

Re: In a "Red Dawn" Situation Would The Youth of America Rise To The Occaision And Fight?
Christ, I ran into a guy from high school at Woodland Hills in Tulsa. He was a basketball and baseball player, ran track with me one year. He is married to some twentysomething dipshit and he was making fun of the scar under my and my son's cheek.

"Look they, match honey."

According to a former schoolmate, he is now 'metrosexual'.

"I heard you still do a little boxing. Aren't you going to grow up?" He actually asked me that!


I just shrugged and replied, "Well, it's Muay Thai. It's kickboxing."

His wife commented on my Hobart welding ball cap, she said, with a smart ass tone, "That hat looks like it's seen better days. You know they have a ball hat store in the mall."

Without missing a beat, I said, "Nah, they just sell those flat brimmed 'gangsta' wanna-be hats, this one will do me another ten, fifteen years."

They both just sort of stared at me blankly. The rest of the conversation was as shallow as a wading pool at waterpark.

Good luck with shaving your chest hair and your mani/pedis, Trent.

I truly believe that they would surrender to their own deaths rather than actually doing anything.Most now want the world, but only if it is given to them. They do NOT want to put forth the effort to even save their poor miserable lives, because it doesn't really matter, you can't do anything about it.

Younger people have more of an instinct for self-survival. It would be the older people (but not too old) that would take the risks necessary for resistance, because older people don't have as much to lose.
