(FinancialHealth.net) – Riots swept across America over the last several days. President Donald Trump believes the violent Leftist group Antifa used peaceful protests to destroy cities, and he is not happy. According to reports, the military is standing by just in case they have to restore order.
According to Minneapolis’ 5 Eyewitness News, the Army’s elite 82nd Airborne Division’s Immediate Response Force was put on standby alert to possibly deploy to Minnesota. If they are sent into action, they won’t be bringing their weapons.
This wouldn’t be the first time the unit has helped during a difficult time. In 2005, 82nd Airborne deployed to New Orleans to help after Hurricane Katrina. Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) is in full support of sending the military in to keep the peace.
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. https://t.co/OnNJmnDrYM

Hopefully it won’t come to this. It would be great if the rioters just chilled and allowed the justice system to work. However, if the protests do get out of hand, 82nd Airborne can put a stop to the violence quickly with or without weapons.
