80 percent of us want to live in peace and coexist. IF you are saying the nutcases on the far left and the far right are going to fight, I think you could be right about that, but most of the country doesn't hate one another.


I agree that the greater majority of people just want to live in peace. But that does not exclude them from fighting if things go bad. I believe there is a greater portion of the country that would participate if a civil war did break out. While the desire to live in peace is strong, the desire to throw down against a tyrannical group or individual is stronger in many.

A couple of interesting wild cards are state military forces.

The National Guard units may or may not respond to orders to federalize, depending on the situation.

But often forgotten is that some states have "state guard" or militia units that answer only to the governor. They're typically only used to assist in the wake of disasters, but their hierarchy and operation is military in nature.

Cheers

My grandmother used to say that even within a family there is always strife. How can we have peace when even families can't get along?

Lot's of truth there.

True, but strife rarely escalates to armed conflict, much less on a national scale.

Cheers

Maybe true, but not likely. Most people these days live paycheck to paycheck, on the edge of disaster. People are quite honestly afraid to rock the boat or they could be out in the street. There may be a strong desire to resist tyranny, but the survival instinct may overpower that. Now, if the infrastructure fails, like we have food shortages, then all bets are off. If one side tries to cut off food to a perceived enemy, then I think we will be in a SHTF scenario to be sure. The French revolution was largely the result of people not having access to food. Most upheavals start that way.

I agree with your assessment, however, I think that is what will eventually happen.

If I were on the tyranny side of things, the first thing I would do is cut the infrastructure and put the other side in survival mode, then make sure they knew I had everything they needed to survive. Dangle the carrot so to speak. Living on the edge, as you put it, means a lot of people have little to lose and little to fear. Its the guy with the nice house and three cars that are all paid for that will want to maintain the status quo. Its in his favor to do so. But he is in the minority.

Those guns are gone rusty. Time for some action.

Anything is possible i suppose.

But if you wish UN troops upon your soil, Civil War 2, would be the way to go about it.

All the preppers and nutters logged in their bunkers in the hills would just love that.

Personally i don't see your nation being that silly down to the likes of Trumps nonsensical ramblings.

For a start who the hell would be silly enough to turn up?

To OP..

I was looking at Lebanon to see when their wars started and found it was a civil war stemmed out of rich Muslim Socialists moving into the country. After a while, they wanted to take over and it turned into a civil war. That country still hasn't recovered fully. So people need to question where the money for these movements are coming from out her in the US. cause it looks like we are going to repeat history again or ban religion all together.

a reply to: JAGStorm I'm inclined to say no. Reason being, it would be short and one sided. The extreme left is not as numerous as the media would lead you to believe. The average democrat doesn't say much except vote for their candidate. The feral ones you see on the news are a very small number. Now domestic terrorism from groups like Antifa are very plausible but, that too will be short and snuffed out very fast.
