I don't know what to say. I could concede and say your right, we really do need at least some guerrilla warfare to straighten this county out.
That's just foolish ramblings frustrated single men that are pissed at their circumstance.
There is no feasible way anyone in the modern military that could break off a section of troops to attack itself. Do you see how foolish that sounds
when you read it out. You think that its 100% plausible that an Army General takes a tank platoon willing to follow his orders and shoot at other
Americans? And you don't think this General will be stopped the moment this is mentioned? Nothing but more fantasy....come on guys.
There will be no revolution - unless you can present cause, action and resolution.

You have got to be kidding me right?
Do some research of history over the last 100 years and tell me it is not plausible that a military officer would be able to successfully or
unsuccessfully do such a thing.
Here, I'll give you some recent ones.
"In the early hours of 28 June 150 balaclava-clad soldiers from the Honduran military surrounded the house of President Manuel Zelaya in downtown
Tegucigalpa where the President slept unawares. A dozen of them broke into his bedroom, grabbed Zelaya in his pyjamas and bundled him off to the
airport where he was unceremoniously put on a flight to Costa Rica."
"It took Pakistan's military only 17 hours to carry out a devastating military coup.
But it could have unravelled in less than an hour as the man at the centre of the overthrow sat in a plane circling above Karachi, battling to land
before the plane ran out of fuel.
But Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's failure to stop General Pervez Musharraf from uniting the army showed how well prepared the military had been to
defend their high command and take on the civilian government.
"On November 1-2, 1963, a military coup toppled the South Vietnamese government; [Premier Ngo Dinh] Diem (1901-63) was killed; and a
military-controlled provisional regime was established. A period of political instability ensued, with South Vietnam trying to strengthen its
anti-communist military effort. By 1965, the Armed Forces Council, headed by Generals Nguyen Cao Ky (1930-) and Nguyen Van Thieu (1923-), was running
"Dr. Thaksin Shinawatra is a businessman who became the wealthiest person in Thailand, eventually turned into a politician, started a new political
party which quickly became the first absolute majority in Parliament in Thailand's modern history, initially had great popularity, but then used
toughly disciplined party votes to erode democracy, became corrupt and autocratic, alienated many in the intelligencia, and was deposed by a military
coup on September 19, 2006........ It was obvious that democracy had ceased to function under Thaksin, and it increasingly looked like the only way
out was a military coup to forcibly restore democracy
. This was rumored, but the vast majority of people found it hard to imagine a military
coup in modern Thailand. Besides, Thaksin had put some loyalists in key positions in the military and police force which appeared to trump that
I'll stop right there and let you do your own research.
As matter of fact I will just stop right there on this thread altogether.
It is apparent you demand that such a thing is absolutely absurd and completely impossible. We all live in fantasy land. That's what they thought in
Let's list some other impossibilities.

Man will never fly.
Man will never go to space.
There will never be a black US president
