This is a rabbit hole that’s completely beside the point of the article. But if we’re going there…

I personally think viewing the US military as if it would be a dispassionate actor during a nationwide armed revolt is pretty myopic. If an armed revolt were to transpire, the elephant in the room is what exactly the military would choose to do about it. They could choose one side, or the other, or both, and I’m not in a position to really say how that would transpire, not knowing the context. And the context is by definition unknowable, for discussions such as this. It’s not completely clear, for instance, who would be revolting, nor against whom.
