Wishing and hoping in Moscow...
More than 30 articles in the past few days on some of Russia's most popular news sites have suggested that the next US election is a prelude to a new US civil war.

I have been out of the military for 8 years, but I still remember the fucking rules of engagement.
In no scenario is it ok for our Armed Forces to fire at civilians throwing goddamn rocks. That is called an unlawful order. Punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
