This topic has been around for a long time, talking about what a walkover it would be. It’s not that clear cut. For example, the military. I think most service members who have been in combat, will tell you, they aren’t fighting for the Alt Right or the Left/ests. They are fighting for the guys to the left, right, front, and back of them, their team, their unit.
The police are not going to divide as easily. They are just people, like you and me. They have families to provide for. They may not like it but if LEO’s bodies start hitting the ground. That thin blue line will stiffen in outrage.
Then you have to take into account mobility. In a Civil War 2.0, you are going to have to find a way to concentrate your forces to overcome the Mobility, and Force Multipliers that today’s military has.
Then you have to consider prosecuting an asymmetrical war. The reasons it works so well, is morale. The people, who have used it so effectively against us, they hate us. Deeply, passionately, and with the fervor that only true believers in a religion that is antithetical to what we as a country believe. Do you really think that alt right guy_001 is going to be ready to chop off Joe the Janitors head to make a point, or Bob the Butcher’s?
It’s all great theory, but give the far left the credit for some intelligence. How do you cook a live ? You boil him real low and slow. He just swims around until he is dead. You don’t drop him into a roiling, boiling pot of water.
Last, where are the men and women, who have the strength, the moral fortitude, the sheer ability to galvanize the citizenry? Like the Founding Fathers of our Country? I don’t know if we have that as a country anymore.
This is going to sound horribly callous, and I truly apologize if I offend anyone. But do you really think, this hasn’t been going on since the 80’s? I know for a fact that it was war gamed in the 80’s. I could probably introduce you to one of the people who came up with that report. This has come up so often, since the ubiquity of the Internet, that it rolls around every few years.
Maybe, that video is right, maybe it’s not? All I can tell you is this. There’s a reason that the Civil War is the war that had the greatest amount of American casualties. EVER.
