What the military are for

Had to laugh at this headline: Saudis use armoured vehicles to suppress internal dissent. Armies etc are not for protecting the people from external enemies; their main purpose is to protect the rich of any country from the rest of the people. But a lot of folks will get indignant that the Saudis are using Cdn war machines to “suppress” their people. So naive. War Measures Act anyone?
