This is truly the stupidest era.

A pandemic is wreaking havoc on the country.  The VP is playing with sci fi scenarios and the president is planning a coup.

You say that as if you believe or hope we're in some sort of culminating era - stupidity's last gasping stand against progress or something.  I doubt it, I think the kicking and screaming is just getting underway and we haven't seen anything yet. We're often warned of a right-wing backlash but it'll be nothing compared to stupidity's.

We're at the start of an era.

Yep, trump is talking about using martial law to try to keep his sorry ass in office. That to me is not only stupid but downright scary. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail and trump will leave the WH either under his own steam or between a couple of secret srevice agents.

Anyone with half a brain would recognize how important being able to control the space around earth is.  Most communication, especially regarding military is satellite based.  So is the use of most specialized weapons.  It’s the future of all military operations.

A  treaty prohibiting the weaponization of space was signed by 110 countries back in 1967 and has been in effect ever since. The USA and USSR were two of the five originators of the treaty

Actually no it's not l'il buddy shady, he brought up the idea at a meeting last Friday. But don't worry, he will leave office come January and then the world can begin to return to normal. Maybe donny can then go tend to his "bone spurs"

I think that if he simply announced this, it would cause processes to start to break.

It would be interesting to see if the military would follow such orders. Their first oath of loyalty is to the constitution.

Oaths are meaningless. The average soldier would blow away their own people given the order. 

The upper brass would be the difference.

History is full of examples where soldiers have refused orders to fire on their own people. Revolutions often start that way.

America is full of recent examples of soldiers ignoring their oaths.

And you think the average soldier is trained on what their oath to the constitution should actually mean? 

Quote
When I joined the Navy, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. But not once, in all of my training, did I receive meaningful instruction on the document to which I had pledged my life.



Should that point arrive, those charged with carrying out such orders will bear an enormous burden. From my time in the Navy, and from conversations with those still in uniform, I fear that the American military is not prepared. It has failed, at every turn, to provide those charged with defending the Constitution even the most basic understanding of what it means.

Hopefully we won't find out but I repeat, revolutions have started this way, including the Russian revolution. They usually start with the soldiers shooting the officers who gave the orders.

More often than revolutions, the soldiers “just follow orders” and kill for the despot.
