Hunkered, we can’t stop them.
Only watch them continue to destroy the country.
Agreed – IF “hunkered down” only means hiding passively in fear. But that wasn’t the intent of my flavor of the definition. I see it as a very long haul operation, one for which we’ll need to be firmly in the position of dealing with, not necessarily in one specific place, but always alert and aware (and not passive).
