American Insurrection

america is an armed society.
every year a huge number of americans take to the woods in pursuit of deer, elk and other critters of the fur, feathers and flesh persuasion. and, if you read hunting magazines and gun magazines, you will well recognize that they are armed with very sophisticated weapons, in some measure, such as optics and ballistic aids, the rival of the most modern military organizations.
so, say that america erupts in rebellion against the gun confiscation measures being cooked up by obama and minions, apparently to be spearheaded in congress by the likes of pelosi, reid, feinstein and others of that ilk. senator feinsteins pronouncements relative to her legislative aims include words like "confiscation," and "registration," long despised and detested words among pro-gun americans.
if she wanted to "press some buttons," she's pressed some buttons.
what can we view as the likely model of american insurrection?
well, it won't be along the lines of major tank battles on open terrain, such as witnessed recently in the middle east. syrians, iraqis, egyptians, hezbollah and hamas have proved it foolhardy to go up against the modern armor of the west, principally the armies of the u.s. and israel.
fighting modern armies on open terrain is a rather foolhardy proposition, unless you are the top of the military food chain.
no, i believe that the model of conflict in the middle east as we have witnessed the last several years during the "arab spring" and other insurrections provides the proper intellectual modality to anticipate the outlines of such conflict by civilians against an established and entrenched regime.

An interesting article to say the least and one I agree with.
Thanks Woody, for kicking it along.

Yeah , this is so wide spread that I doubt that you can point to any specific spot and say " it will start here ". There was a man who was present at the battle of Cold Harbor during the Civil War , who stated that the tremendous / constant volume of fire poured out by both side`s , sounded " like great sheet`s tearing in the wind". It will bust loose with one terrific burst of fire, and spread across this place faster than a weather front.

The "arab spring" was also a product of FB and the ability to communicate. I'm reading quite a few articles detailing how FB is shutting accounts down do to "political" (ie Conservative)speech. Some of these are quotes from our Founders and, surprisingly, Gandhi. Might "they" be getting worried?

Yeah nice read. I posted some thoughts about it myself. More of a reality based article.

Think about it for a minute Kenny. What will you do? When will you know it's time to act?

The guy next door gets raided, the media has painted him an extremist. Flash his posts all over TV.. Now multiply that by a million all over the nation but only one or two a week. When do we jump to help? when does America stand up for the "Raided?" We won't We'll continue to post about insurrection and sign petitions until all of the sudden there's only a few of us left... Baby steps.

Ken, I read this yesterday (saw it linked on Theo Sparks' website) and printed out a copy so I could read and re-read it.

The "logical" part of my mind says the government can't be stupid enough to even try to take away our guns. But then there's the voice of disbelief that chimes in and says, "Yeah, but somehow the bozos got elected and then re-elected -- if things are that fracked up, then almost anything could happen."

Keep up the good work you're posting here on your blog -- it's great to be reading things that need to be brought into the light.

Regards,
Tom Stockton
