When you see American fascist groups like the Patriot Front would-be-rioters arrested in Idaho, it's easy to laugh at their apparent ineptitude. Don't underestimate the threat.

Even if one can ignore the rabidly bloodthirsty nature of this movie, it is still absolute garbage. The morals of this story are, and I am not exaggerating in the slightest: soldiers should ignore orders to stand down, and you should take actions without thinking about them.
