Is the General confused? I thought that he swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. Given the necessity of disarming everyone before helping them, I would have to be naked, in freezing weather, and having lost half my body weight before accepting such help. I would rather be among those whose doors are kicked in by the jack-booted-thugs. I am sure that we will fare as well as those who are officially "helped".
I think you are confused!
