The 82nd Airborne Division has been ordered to deploy to Washington D.C. in order to help break up the riots in that city. The 82nd was the same group sent into Iraq to quell the Iranian insurrection. Let's see Antifa try pulling stuff on them.
I foresee a rude awakening in their lives if they decide to risk it. It would be a good learning experience for the country. Our people need to remember that it's okay to break riots instead of waiting for them to tire themselves out.
Breitbart News says that a good source told them that the 16th Military Police Brigade from Fort Bragg was also being deployed to Washington. Trump talked to the governors on the phone today and told them if they didn't stop the rioting in their cities, he would.
Trump told the governors:
“My first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people. I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation, and that is exactly what I will do.”
“As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily-armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults and the wanton destruction of property.”
The deployments to D.C. comes after rioters looted stores, defaced national monuments, and burned a historic church a block from the White House.
Trump during a press conference on Monday announced he was dispatching military units in response to the riots.
Trump also spoke to governors earlier during a conference call in which he urged them to show strength and take back the streets from rioters.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), an Army veteran who is close to the Trump administration, said Monday morning that “anarchy, rioting, and looting needs to end tonight,” and suggested sending active duty forces.
He added: “And, if necessary, the 10th Mountain, 82nd Airborne, 1st Cav, 3rd Infantry — whatever it takes to restore order. No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters.”
