We now learn many of them were people with a background in military training

This is not the military I remember.
Language in the House-passed version of a massive annual defense policy bill aims to give the military more tools to root out extremists in the ranks by creating a new office in the Pentagon; requiring more training and data collection; and clarifying that service members cannot be members of extremist groups.
Since when are members of the Active Military even have the time to join extremist groups. This BS is nothing but to get the soldiers off the training battle grounds and into these silly ass classes.
And it even isn't all about the Active Military. "We now learn many of them were people with a background in military training. You saw it in the formations they were using as they marched on the Capitol. You saw it in the gear that they were carrying, and in the protocols, the manners in which they were operating on that day. And we're not going to stand for a Defense Authorization Act that doesn't get after that problem."
Well by reading this also, seems like few in the White House has ever served in the US Military. "Like so many things in the military, this is not so much institutional reform, it's leadership. It's educating troops so that they understand their duty to the Constitution," he said.

Is this about trying to predict the future?
Maybe they don't want to train the people now who they think at some point in the future could possibly eventually have some sort of supposed radical extremist views.
Maybe they should focus more on the reasons why once proud Americans who would die for their country, end up standing against it. Such as the corrupt government officials who want to strip away our freedoms so that they can gain even more money and power.
In other words, instead of looking for people who you think you may someday piss off, how about stop doing the things that piss them off.

Sorry but I have experienced many many times seeing and hearing racism and sexism in the military, it is a massive problem. Same goes for the police.
Something has to be done.
