So...are there no concerns about posse comitatus with this?  Military *directly* overseeing our government functions is one hell of a conflict of interest.

Because the members of the politburo are afraid of them to be armed when they're in the same room with them.

Congress (1) is a bunch of scared faggots for demanding this and (2) as another poster noted, they WANT these optics so they can blubber and weep to the press about "We had to surround ourselves with SOLDIERS (EEEEEK!) to protect ourselves from those awful Trump supporters!!"

If I'm not mistaken this is the first time since 1861 that soldiers have been quartered in the halls of congress. Last unit who was forced to sleep there was the 6th Massachusetts Militia Regiment after their march from Baltimore following the riots there.

Swing and a miss. It happening frequently doesn’t mean it’s not a failure of leadership in this instance too.

It didn't even cross my mind that sleeping on the floor is a "problem" (excepting the fact that it's the capital building). Shit, most of us have slept in WAY worse places. A clean, warm, dry, floor? Sure.

Did you expect anything different?  Most of the German army didn't gas the Jews for fun.  They did it because they were cowards just following orders.  They weren't willing to risk their lives, their comfy beds, 3 square meals a day, and a pay check for the lives of some pesky little Jews.  No siree.  Our army is no different.

Cots suck. They are marginally more comfortable than a floor, and carrying them all in a building and setting them up is a clusterfuck in tight spaces...

IMO not worth it in a lot of cases. We rarely used them except in instances of semi-permanent shelter. Personally I'd rather just sleep on my issued isomat or personally owned inflatable mat instead dealing with a cot.

It's not a big deal, every one of them got the job they applied for.

It's not an unusual situation, most don't even think twice about it.

Our folks were RSOI'd, equipped, armed, and sent north to DC in response to the screams for help from the civilian "leadership" there.  What DC then did there in terms of having a troop to task mission plan, having life support, having a reasonable force pro and RUF plan, etc is what you see in the pics.

The whole US Army was only one regiment. Militia had to be called forth to build an army. A couple of pics showed the 29th Division patch - VANG.
Link Posted: 1/13/2021 12:39:18 PM EST
To be clear- I don't have an issue with the lack of cots, but I do think it's absolutely 100% absurd that troops are quartered in the building itself.
