Start by reading my previous post.
Note that in that post, I never said that I was against the use of Militia, and I think that if you had followed this blog for much of the eleven years it has been out here, you should know that by now. I fully support the idea of Militia, and while I don't fit into either category of it, organized or un-organized anymore, due to age, there is nothing to say that I couldn't assist a militia unit to become operational. In fact, I performed duty in the Air National Guard along lines connected to this (logistics planning, exercise, testing and evaluation in Organized Militia units).
The Internet is a fine tool for assisting the assembly of Militia, at least for now. If the Militia "movement" really gets going, I expect the Government to attempt to end the use of Internet for that purpose. Good luck to them, there are many, many savvy IT people who would help establish a new network almost immediately.
How does one get a militia unit going? Talk is cheap so I'll spend some of that coin...
To start with, a leader is needed. The definition of leader here is largely one of communicator. The leader is probably going to have been a good communicator all along. The leader decides to form a unit, and when drawing the plans, the leader FIRST considers mission: the employment of the unit, and it's scope of mission. This could range from defending a few blocks of a neighborhood against invaders from outside of that area, all the way up to defending large chunks of a major political sub-division, such as several counties. Note that the drift of this paragraph is on defense of a slice of land and it's buildings, etc. This is how most militia units come into being: they are NOT force-projection units, they ARE areal defense units. Militia can act in force projection, but to do so requires a huge leap of transition from a few folks defending their neighborhood when the usual order fails, up to and including a unit capable of travelling long distances, supporting itself away from it's home area and performing missions NOT related to simple areal protection. This is several orders of magnitude more complex in all organizational and logistical respects.
To relate this to the Harney County, Oregon situation, Ammon Bundy brought his people hundreds of miles and then took over a Government compound, declaring it and the extensive land it controlled to have changed hands and not be controlled by the Bureau of Land Management anymore. That's a tall order for a militia mission, and the military would probably not even try that without the use of a battalion-sized unit (close to 1,000 troops). If contesting for land in this size range, a military unit might have to be a Division or greater. Bundy does not have even a platoon available, maybe not more than a rifle squad. (See this Wiki, down a ways under "Armies") Even if Bundy were to attract a few hundred more folks to join his militia, he wouldn't have more than two companies at best. Given the remoteness of his objective, at least half of his force will have to be engaged in resupply at all times. Logistics theory and practice does not favor success of his operation. Weather in that area is barely better than sub-arctic at present, with daytime highs in the twenties and night-time lows near or below zero. If this report is accurate, Bundy's militia did not come properly equipped to hold the territory they have seized.
The lesson here is quite clear: if you are to have a successful militia, and we NEED successful militia, it has to be formed from a plan which includes it's SPECIFIC mission, not a political concept, but a military mission, definable in military terms. Ammon Bundy's militia seems to have been formed more along the lines of a political debating society, what we call an "activist" group nowadays, but as one who has performed military duty out in the cold Northwest winters, AND one who has performed in a debating society/activist group, I'm here to tell you that there is ZERO crossing-over between the two experiences. Sorry, Commenter Richard, I do concur with your political objectives, but they cannot be accomplished this way in Harney County, Oregon.
