Thanks for the perfectly obvious response of total disbelief in this little Kabuki drama.
The military recieve orders... they don't give orders.
And as you are quick to observe, they properly take their direction from local and state authorities.
This whole thing has the fishy aroma of liberal, MSM manhandling all over it.
Sorry, but I would rather be at the mercy of the military coming to the rescue, than politicians and bureaucrats!
