before martial law is declared ?
No that is an interesting response. Almost combative out of the gate. Who would your preference be as far as a leader during these trying times. From your comments I know that you have insights and opinions that we all could be from hearing.Will they have weapons? Or did emasculated and ineffective Trump whose generals turned on him and sided with the communist revolutionaries take them?
Not sure what you are getting at. I was getting at the fact that Trump's military thumbed it's nose at him and he let it go - no response to insubordination from America's Commander in Chief. I referenced it in HJB's John Bolton thread. Pasted below as referenceNo that is an interesting response. Almost combative out of the gate.

All that may be - but what more does it say about Trump's judgement to appoint yet another person working against him into his inner circle.
Trump only needs a mirror to see where the blame lies. He surrounded himself by traitors, fools, and people working against his agenda.
He doesn't even have his military leaders on his side. He's been kneecapped and he did it to himself. Esper and Milley are in open defiance of their commander and chief.
No, they weren't armed. Because the National Guard were never there. Lafayette Park was cleared out by the US Park Police with, maybe, some help from the Secret Service. There was no military involved.I'm pretty sure they were armed the other night when so that the president could go get his picture taken close to a church.
You made a specific comment about a specific incident that happened on June 1. NG may or may not have been in DC on June 1 but there was no military involvement in clearing Lafayette Park that night. None. Read the article again. Highlighting something doesn't change the facts of the matter. You're welcome to prove me wrong. And that was a pretty shitty attempt at deflection."The federal government has deployed law enforcement officials from numerous agencies, and National Guard troops from a number of states have been sent to the District of Columbia. Barr is directing the federal law enforcement response in the city."
So there were National Guard troops in DC, and I believe they are armed. Maybe not at the church but I think they were protecting the fence line at that location. I believe several of them subsequently turned up positive for the Chinese virus after that too.
