Oh you mean the 42 town-sized forward operating bases inside the treasonous province? They will come in very handy in the 72 hours it takes to resecure that territory.

I always wondered how quick that would go down.

72 hours seems quick, but I guess they wouldn't really encounter actual resistance.

Yeah “muh guns” are pretty useless against predator drones and air support

We did Baghdad in a month; we could do Austin in three days.

Barring the State politicians, I thought Austin was majority Democrat?

[-] [email protected] 13 points 2 months ago

Probably, but nothing makes a statement like taking a regime's capital.

That might crash the beard oil and red suspenders industries..

Both of which are much better for the world than the current main industries of Texas: fossil fuels and fascism.

Houston is the 4th largest city in the country, and generates a shitload of oil revenue. That's way more important than Austin.

makes it real easy to justify liberating it then, doesn't it? most of the people living there want to remain part of the US.

Do people really think that the servicemen in the military would willingly attack Texans? I have a huge suspicion that they'd revolt within the armed forces.

As someone currently serving active duty, yes - depending on the command climate and the servicemember. Especially if the targets are labeled as insurgents and a VEO threat with credible evidence. Now, bombing noncombatant civilians is a different story, but as far as conducting surgical strikes on domestic terrorists, no hesitation.

National guard at Kent state had no issues killing civilians.
