    Default The Second Civil War (Movie) and a book request

    Last night I watched a fairly poorly done movie, with a pretty good cast - The Second Civil War. I found it on HBO Films....

    The premise is that India nukes Pakistan, and forces in the US decide to import thousands of Pakistani orphan refugees, into Idaho. This follows similar situations of the US allowing in the years previously refugees from different countries, each ethnic group into one state. Rhode Island for example gets all Chinese immigrants, and pretty soon all the elected officials are Chinese...

    Some hilarity ensues...and in the end, well watch the movie if you have a couple of hours of absolutely nothing better to do.

    It did remind me of a book I read years ago....a similar situation in that the US Government is pissed off at Idaho, and drops a unit of the 81st onto Boise....if that sounds familiar to anyone could you let me know what the book is?

    Thanks in advance....

    Got it on DVD, thought it was a great movie, just watched it again about 6 months ago. Secede / succeed - sounds similar but very different meanings lol
    Everything marked, everything 'membered. You wait, you'll see.
