amazing they did not surrender their flag too

Surrender? Not hardly! Did you post the right video?
What a proud force we have there.
They were told by the protesters to take a knee and the capitulated.
Surrender by any other name
Did they shoot the non-violent protesters in cold blood?
No but they should not have capitulated to their demands

Such action harms no one and calms the crowd. Did they leave their assigned post?

I am truly sorry you are so thick-headed.

I have to side with you on this, because I can't second guess the CO at the scene. Butt stroking people at that point does no good.

That said, at some point the mob may be so aggressive that bayonets will be needed.

The base commander should kick these National Guardsmen out the unit and strip them of their rank for being idiots. ... :cool:
That was a Captain. He probably is the Commander of that unit. It is what Captains do.
