"I Can't Do It" Say Some GIs Being Deployed to Quell Uprisings.

'A number of United States service members concerned about the possibility of being ordered by President Donald Trump to suppress uprisings in cities across the country are looking into ways they can personally abstain from such actions.

Trump has promised to “deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem” of protest across the country in order to end demonstrations that have sprung up following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis more than two weeks ago.

On June 1, Trump explained his rationale.

“As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults and the wanton destruction of property,” Trump said.

But organizations that provide advice and information to soldiers on becoming conscientious objectors or dissidents while in service say they’ve been receiving an influx of calls from military service members in the wake of Trump’s promise.

“There are a lot of concerns, and there’s a lot of personal conflict and moral crisis that service members are experiencing right now,” Garett Reppenhagen, executive director of Veterans for Peace, said to New York Magazine. “In the last 15 years, we’ve seen our foreign conflicts escalating all over the world. But I don’t think that folks thought that the global war on terror would be fought here in our country against Americans.”'>>>

1. Another Reason To Be Encouraged

From the top Brass down Twitler is losing support from the Military.

That means if the Fat Orange Poopy Pants Prez refuses to budge after Biden thrashes him the military looks ready to go in and drag his fat rear end out. Then we can hope he faces multiple charges of tax evasion and fraud and eventually gets sent to Prison......where this fraudulent fat creep belongs.
