Would the US military and security forces have taken a side if the Capitol insurrection was way more successful? Which side?

The coup? Or the old government?
Why were they neutral last time?

Well many of the people involved were either former or active duty military and the capitol police literally let them in so that says plenty.

The military wasn’t Trumpist. The Brass hated him.

[@903658,GhostPoncho] no way. They're to protect the current elected government against all enemies.

they knew the "insurrectionists (🤣)" were just a bunch of idiots and they wanted to avoid a bloodbath so they decided to do nothing and wait for the idiots to have a craving for Mcdonald's and leave the premises.

You don’t remember the group of former defense secretaries and Chiefs of Staff warning active duty not to get hooked up in that stupidity. Our pledge/oath is to our country/constitution and not some power hungry idiot.
