Ive studied the breakdown of regimes & revolutions most of my adult life. Trump should study them too, especially USSR in 1991, Serbia in 2000, or Ukraine in 2004. It's when soldiers refuse to carry out politicized orders, or be used as political props, that regimes break down.

Today Trump declared war on the people of the United States, threatening states that if the did not request federal troops in their states, the troops would be deployed forcibly. That’s illegal, and it would invoke a civil war.
