The myth of successful armed resistance in the US in case of martial law
When I read some of the post here on ATS and others forums about martial law in the US, I always see posts that are claiming that if martial law is
ever declared all over the country, the people will fight and it's gonna be worse than in Iraq. DId the people in New Orleans fought when they took
their guns and went into their homes? Also, in Iraq, most of the casualties inflicted to the US army are made by IEDs and suicide bombers, not with
In the US, there's 80 millions guns owners, but of those, how much would fight or keep their firearms when the police/military kick their doors and
take them like they did in New Orleans? Let's say 25% keep their guns, on those 25%, how many people will fight? 50% of those? That's 10 millions
people. You say that's a lot of armed people.
But let's make a comparaison with Iraq. In Iraq, under Saddam, almost every home had at least 1 gun. Iraq's population was 26 millions in 2005, that
means they had at least 20 millions guns, they were armed to the teeth... and who fighted and overthrown Saddam, a dictatorship? Not a lot of people.
Those who fighted only fighted the troops in southern Iraq, killing some police officers, some soldiers but it's not this way that you will regain
your country. What I want to say is that even with the basic technology of the Iraqi government and their equipment, they were able to keep their
dictatorship because of the spies they had in the population.
In the US, the police state is growing little by little, making lists of ``possible threat`` including people protesting against the war and political
enemies, over 300.000 names on that list
militias are surely on that list. Putting cameras all over the place,
like in schools
, manipulating kids
to love the government and denying them access to information
them good behavior drugs
or even spy on their own students.
They start early
to manipulate them by
years old kids
or banning typical school games
taking DNA at birth.
For the adults, spying on citizens by
listening to them
, taking their
fingerprint to have a mortage
or by scanning you, your shoes and your eyes
technology to ``detect violent behavior``
or more technology for police to scan car license-plates
that would help localize someone.
They admits they breach your privacy
and will soon force you to
or maybe become a spy for the US government?
When the private mercenaries
will come for
you, assisted with the
planes scanning your neighboorhood,
what will you do? When everything you say online will be
what will you do to ignite a revolution like the founding fathers did when the time will be needed? You won't be able to talk
, on internet, by emails, on the streets, on the
phone, on radio, without being monitored. HOW WILL YOU ORGANIZE? When your alone or in group, it will be very hard to win a skirmish in the street
without being monitored, recorded and then tracked by the army. They will know who killed who, where you are, who was with you, then they'll come
after you and put you in a concentration camp that Halliburton built just under your nose.
It's hard in Iraq because the technological police state wasn't there FIRST. In the USA, it will be there and full functionnal when the crap hit the
fan. The only way to fight will be in the wild side of the country, and those inside the cities will be under total control. That's why the fight
against a police state must be won at the 2008 elections, because do you imagine 8 more years of push for a police state?
Will you fight when they announce the North American Union? Will you fight when the country is bankrupt because of them? Will you fight when they take
your guns? Will you fight when the election is cancelled? Will you fight if they go into Iran? Will you fight if they impose a draft? Will you fight
if they put martial law? Will you fight if they legalize illegal immigrants? Will you fight if they start chipping everybody?
And to prepare or work to avoid this day, what will you do?
