This is what happens when an idiot in the White House appoints another idiot as head of the U.S. Army.
In the aftermath of Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez’s murder of four Marines and a Navy petty officer at a Naval Reserve Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee, questions once again are raised about the policy, begun by then-President Bill Clinton, of disarming service members on military bases.
Responding to those questions, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army Gen. Raymond Odierno told reporters that arming troops in those offices could cause more problems than it might solve.

Electric Yerevan & Lessons on the Color-Spring Tactic
he Electric Yerevan protest provides us with an excellent opportunity to review some of the basic underlying mechanics and psychology of the Color-Spring tactic. It is important to share these publicly, for it is indeed probable that the Color-Spring tactic will be increasingly applied in the world as a “hybrid soft-power/hard-power tactic”.
A moral principle held by Gene Sharp, who was one of the tactic’s main developers, was that violence is not necessary for revolution. What is strange, contradictory, even dishonest here is that violence is reduced taxonomically to the physical violence of the state’s gendarmes against the civilians.
