Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Fox News this morning: “If local politicians will not do their most basic job to protect our citizens, let’s see how these anarchists respond when the 101st Airborne is on the other side of the street.”
He later amplified his remarks: “And, if necessary, the 10th Mountain, 82nd Airborne, 1st Cav, 3rd Infantry — whatever it takes to restore order. No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters.”
Historically, “no quarter” means that you kill people rather than arrest them. It’s a war crime.
