As I have written here before it is nothing less than murder to place unarmed soldiers on the streets with the mission of guarding anything in the face of mobs who have no respect for government and certainly no respect for soldiers.
The mob tried to capture and occupy Lafayette Park across the street from the White House last night. They tried to overturn and demolish the statue of President Andrew Jackson in the center of that park. Do you think they won't be back?
The District of Columbia National Guard are part time amateur soldiers. They will be very afraid of the mob.
Esper, McCarthy and that ass, Milley, think this is a good idea? Incredible. pl
