    If Guaido hasn't flipped a majority of the military, I don't see how this ends well...

    You want a clear majority either way. The worst that can happen is the military splits evenly. Then it's a civil war.

    Even if the military splits 70/30 either way it could still kickoff a lengthy guerrilla campaign.

    It's how it's done. Domestically the United States has been, until recently, and obviously with enormous exceptions, a fairly progressive nation. Internationally it's always been just another pig at the trough.

    Oh good. A carrier group and a stealth bomber task force sent to threaten Iran. And we effectively threatened them explicitly. All because Iran was reportedly planning an attack on US assets.
