I’ve long said that I didn’t think a military coup was likely, and while armed insurrection from Possum Hollar already has occurred, I stand by my original assertion:
WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event.
OK, I understand and applaud the over-abundance of caution, and after all that we’ve learned about the insurrectionists of the Stupid Coup this seems wise. But at least to me supports my belief that a military coup will not happen. That someone is already working to ensure that it doesn’t is both alarming and comforting.
