    I'm not into potus politics. The President can call out the military in a case of national emergency, but the governor of a state has authority over the state's national guard.

    I'm guessing it's newspeak for strafing?

    Ppl should be glad they meekly submitted to those executive orders, saved their miserable skins from a dose of friendly fire.

    Actually it is just flying low to the ground at a high speed. The engine noise and the air turbulence it creates makes people want to hug the ground. Think of getting on and off a helicopter with the blades moving at high speed. Even though the blades are several feet above your head (with no chance of hitting you) the noise and turbulence makes you duck.

    In my opinion, it's plausible, calling on the Air National Guard for a "Buzzing" mission would be the same as calling up the Army National Guard for riot control duties...it's not the active duty military. I would doubt there was ever consideration of bombing protesters.

    In my opinion the Federal Government was way to lenient in leaving last summers civil unrest in the hands of the State Governors. After 72 hours I would have activated the State Guard for federal service, rolled into the cities, and restored order...period.

    They literally do that at air shows, even with F15s.

    They're loud but there are far fewer safety restrictions in the U.S. about altitude and flying over crowds at air shows.

    Probably not the best Idea, but a plausible one. Rioting went on for what...90 days? President Trump should have activated the Guard for federal service after 72 hours, and restored order. Peaceful protesters don't destroy property, throw rocks at police, and assault people.

    Every year in Chicago we have an "Air and Water Show" and it Blue Angels and such involved in it, I live about a block from Lake Shore Drive so for several days out of the year I'm "buzzed" by jets flying over my head. For. Several. Days. And, yeah, I do know what being "buzzed by a jet" looks and sounds like. :sigh:
