The silver lining for us regarding the deep budget cuts and social engineering the military faces is that, were the unthinkable ever to transpire, then we’d be facing a military that is a shadow of its old self.
Even today, the only dangerous units are the combat arms units, and they’re a fraction of the military. Your average combat service support unit would get torn to pieces trying to occupy anything more dangerous than a chow hall.
The combat arms unit we have are second to none, but their senior leadership is, quite frankly, second to all. Given the increasingly poor record of success the military enjoys due to the increasingly politicized commanders, it’s likely that promoting the most obedient will continue to reward the most inept.

Then what happened at Waco?
The Davidians never fired a shot, even though it was reported by the schmuck mediots that they were heavily armed.
