To any American soldier ordered or tempted to shoot a migrant who throws rocks....

DON'T DO IT.

You will NOT be protecting this country. You will NOT be a hero. You will be seen as a murderer everywhere in this world except among a minority cult of deplorables.

2. I find it very hard to believe a commander would establish those rules of engagement

In fact, other than, photo ops they mostly will be in support roles.

3. What happened to the Kent State shooters. They shot because of rocks.

 

They pled self defense and the case was dropped.

In civil court they settled for an amount paid by the State

5. Kent State was started by one single panicky National Guard Sargeant

who was then joined by 29 of the 77 guardsmen present.

I don't think regular troops are going to fire into a crowd of unarmed civilians.

4. They will not be armed for this assignment.

They will be given "support" assignments away from the border.
