Which military is he going to use?
I’ve never been in the military and I have zero basis for making any kind of statement as to what the rank and file military man would do or not do. If you have military experience or exposure, I’m in no way trying to negate that experience.
That said, there are plenty of Nat’l Guard reserve units available, and maybe I am incorrectly assuming that. Maybe half of them would disobey orders to put down a civilian “diturbance” but far fewer would disobey orders to put down an out of control race riot in a Detroit or a Newark or a Camden or an Oakland. Sure, there are plenty of folks who are armed. I think the claims as to how many of them would fire upon a squad of Nat’l Guard soldiers are overestimated, as well.
I am not predicting how this would turn out. I am only saying that there is a period after early November and January 20, 2013 when a booted-out admin is very much in control of things. If it’s chaos they want, I believe they would unleash it if they felt it would serve their aims.
