8. A soldier is forbidden, by law,

of carrying out illegal orders. The international trials at Nuremberg after WWII illuminated the consequences to soldiers who violated that principal.

Trump may be experimenting with the use of the insurrection laws to see how far he can go in unilaterally declaring an "insurrection."
Who knows, perhaps he can declare an "unfair election" as an insurrection and put the military into the streets in order to retain his power.

Perhaps Trump could even define a post like this as an "insurrection" and disappear the poster into the fog and night of a military prison.
