I do agree though that this seemed poorly planned and even more poorly executed. They thought Trump would be there and send in his personal guard, or something.
I have since found another as well, now ex-officer Fam of Houston, however, even with a handful of these people in their ranks, an all-out insurgency would not last that long. The US is far from the failed state of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, or Ethiopia. It's not even close to Ukraine, the Balkans, or Kosovo.
