A second civil war would be a sight to see.
i had actually had this idea flowing in my head for a while, i never knew that a book was written, i should look into it.
it makes me wonder what would happen if the most militarily powerful nation went to war with its self.
what would the catalyst be? would there be segregation with in the government/military?
the idea i had was that such an event would happen, brought on by the aid of government members, in every level, as well as that of the military.
There would be a downfall of both systems as the sides developed, one being the original opposers and one being what used to be the old USA. Unlike
the 1860's civil war, this one would not be confined to hemispheres of the county, but a part of the population taken from every region, essentially
every city would initially have some kind of war happening, however when power shifts in these mini wars, territories would be established and i
suppose a front war would ensue.
how Canada would be involved i am not sure, but i think it may be involved in the taking in of refugees, which i think, unlike the previous war, would
be large in number due to the initial chaos of the conflict.
the fact that the USA is so advanced in its arms development it a key factor i think, a mob getting their hands on some modern firearms is a lethal
took in anyones hands, and if anarchy is rampant, then, well, god help everyone.
as i said before, i think that the military, unless they do crush all opposition initially, will be vanquished along with the government quite soon.
that or they will separate over to the two major sides.
the outcome is beyond me, but personally i think it will be a stalemate, if both sides are fighting for the same thing, pretty much, then the fighting
will be hard, long and uneventful
of cause thats just my theory, i know nothing about politics, or military strategy so i can only offer a layman's opinion.
