This is a page I found from another forum on which things might start when things start to get bad here. It discusses issues about riots from recent police shootings to a financial collapse. It is a very interesting read but pretty long. It seems pretty well thought out.

westernrifleshooters.wordpress.com...

This could possibly go in civil issue/unrest but it is mainly a survival article as well. Mods please choose where it might go. Thanks

The US National Guard has already admitted if there is a large scale unrest in the USA the military is spread too thin to be able to be of effective use. This would be in the event of unrest in 3-4 major cities.

Picture protests in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington DC getting out of hand at the same time. The Army and Police would have their hands full pretty quickly.

If the military is called in, imagine soldiers (not really trained well in large crowd control) getting nervous and accidentally firing into the crowd.

The protests would get larger, in more cities. Once they run out of troops, they would probably use drone strikes (police have already been practising with drones in the USA over civilian areas) in order to control the crowds.

News about events would be extremely scattered, very quickly. Cable news networks would be spinning the news in whatever direction they pleased, most would be blaming Republicans for whatever strikes were happening.

The Army would likely get a few divisions that would fracture and refuse to deploy against Americans. The police would be more likely to deploy against US civilians using the large amount of military hardware that they've been supplied for free.

Once you've got a bit of unrest in some large cities, throw in a terrorist attack in one of those centers to add to the panic.

Things would escalate out of control very, very quickly. Martial law would probably be declared, communications severely limited.

Hospitals would be overflowing with days long waits, insurance companies wouldn't be able to process the large number of applicants.

Long distance transport would collapse pretty fast, leading to food shortages, gas shortages, power outages (if not already cut in those cities out of control by the Feds) and more civilian unrest.

On the bright side, Americans are too wrapped up in the next episode of "Keeping up with the Kardashians" to really pay attention or care enough to actually do anything about anything that truly affects their lives. Large scale protests of this sort in the USA require the population to unite over some sort of civil rights issue, and with the divisions in America right now, it's not likely this would happen any time soon.

Well I agree that it would take a lot of soldiers, the Guard is not really a federal unit, each state has one under authority by the Governor of each state but yes they would be a little few. I served in the NG before going active duty Army and worked some disaster areas. I don't think they would have any issues with going after rioting thugs, they have in the past.
The article I linked talks about the vast amount of vets and law abiding who would be more effective in a situation like that.

That was an intense and eye opening read, it's crazy how fast things can go horribly wrong. Luckily im armed and so are my family and most of my friends. Most of us have been hunting sence we were kids and are decent shooters. Hopefully it never comes to this but I'm still stocking up on ammo just in case.

^ This.

I've been seeing threads on ATS for years, contemplating mass riots and overturning the government, blah blah blah. It's all talk though. Nobody actually wants to be the one to initiate it.

There's an old Native American saying. "It is better to have less thunder in the mouth and more lightning in the hand."

I have no doubt the radical left will try and initiate it as the elections get closer if it looks as if they will loose,power at the federal level. Communists dont leave office once elected. You have to drag them out kicking and screaming. They will attempt to burn down the entire system before they are ousted.

Hopefully the gullible supporters wont fall for the trap but history has shown otherwise. They anti LE agenda has been picking up steam for a few years now and I think we will see it peek during the next election if things dont look good for their side.

Honestly,IMO,the breakdown of gov will be the only opportunity for law abiding citizens to "take out the trash".

Another positive from the breakdown of gov is that the "less fortunate" won't get paid anymore for dropping "babies" all over the place.

Sounds like a win/win situation to me.

Interesting article. There are certainly many scenarios that could cause this situation. Regardless of the source, this is likely to be the most obvious first sign of the SHTF....(i.e. food riots when folks run out of their meager home stores after some kind of event).....

While the article definitely has some racist undertones, the assessment of the situation of what would happen in cities, especially in economically disadvantaged areas, is likely to be pretty accurate. It won't be pretty if it ever happens.
