Wow, it is amazing how misinterpreted this was (blame the Portuguese natives, who should had understood the message in the article) - this is not about revolutions and coups (even though the "revolution" issue is briefly mentioned by the army spokesman). It is simply about the major military unions standing with the people against recent budget cuts enacted by the Portuguese govt in face of its debt crisis (and which have primarily hit public service and servants - where the army is included). The situation is complicated, yes; there have been demonstrations, yes - but revolutions are non-issues. Portugal is a stable western democracy - it is not Libya. What would a revolution do? Impose a Communist Dictatorship? Fascist?

WOW! Portugal has a military? Why?

Seriously though. That is awesome and I wish I had the confidence that the US military would do the same, but alas, I do not. There would be some rank-and-file, but the upper leadership would side with the banksters and politicians hoping for a payday.
