    Which country's army attacked it's own, unarmed, veterans protesting over promised benefits?

    There was a movie about it!
    It's surprising that so many people forget the violent force government has used get it's way.

      Correct!
      MacArthur led the Army to disperse and remove the 43,000 people, 17,000 vets  who had no jobs from D.C.
      In 1936 they were finally paid.
      2 people died, over 1,000 injured.
      Good job!
      Cheers

      Yes, this is correct.  This occurred in the 1920s.  Everyone should know this.  I read about this & learnt this in 5th grade history class.

      gmwilliams,
      I talk to young people and they have no idea how many times the U.S. government reneged on promises. And it is a lot!
      Most don't know about wage and price controls in the 70's. The lies about Vietnam.
      Thanks for the comment!
      Cheers

    World War 1 in the US had a situation like that.

      Yup, MacArthur led the army in to oust  43,000 vets and families form a squatters camp, in D.C.
      Killed 2 and injured over 1,000 men, women and children.
      About 10 years later the U.S. government final came up with the money.
      Cheers

      Post-World War I in Washington D.C-again, correct answer.  This question should be closed since both answers are correct.
