I was in the armed forces too. The troops know that the civilian government is a crock of sh-- by now. Morale is currently lower than it was after Vietnam. The National Guard may be activated on peacekeeping orders, but the MINUTE they are ordered to fire live rounds on anything but outright rioting/looting/raping and pillaging, they will say "WHAT Th' F!" They will most certainly not support any power grabbing by Clowntin.
