I have seen this issue brought up many times on ATS. Many have thought about this in regards to many theories.
So here I am to ask:
Would any active-duty military, if ordered to, fire upon US citizens?
If so, why?
If not, why not?
Definitely deserves an answer, IMO
At 4:45 p.m., commanded by Gen. Douglas MacArthur, the 12th Infantry Regiment, Fort Howard, Maryland, and the 3rd Cavalry Regiment, supported by six battle tanks commanded by Maj. George S. Patton, formed in Pennsylvania Avenue while thousands of civil service employees left work to line the street and watch. The Bonus Marchers, believing the troops were marching in their honor, cheered the troops until Patton ordered the cavalry to charge them—an action which prompted the spectators to yell, "Shame! Shame!"
