    Interesting that the military would intervene and "force" civilian workers back to their jobs during a labor dispute. Unpresendented! The last time the US military intervened in domestic affairs was during the Amerikkkan Civil War. I certainly don't see any correlation between the Civil War and this farse they refer as the "War on Terror" to justify the military being involved in domestic affairs.

    Step 1: Create 9/11

    Step 2: Pass the Patriot Act

    Step 3: Impose Martial Law

    The US Army is considering measures to force striking workers back to their jobs at a Goodyear Tire & Rubber plant in Kansas in the face of a looming shortage of tyres for Humvee trucks and other military equipment used in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    A strike involving 17,000 members of the United Steelworkers union has crippled 16 Goodyear plants in the US and Canada since October 5.
