Once again, the innate fear that is instilled in people by the theater of war is astounding and I have to bring them back to reality. There are and
will be no "air strikes" on US soil especially against groups known to be affiliated with unarmed citizens and with the open message of the end of
American emotion stands daily on the brink with many people, only staying complacent because of things such as family and well being. When these
things are taken away from people, they begin to have nothing to lose. This is why resistance began growing so heavily ever since the economy began to
Could you imagine the support the resistance would receieve from the people on the fence when it is reported that a bunker containing American
citizens including unarmed women and children was bombed by the government in the name of the "greater good". Do you think they would be able to
hide such a thing? When the next neighborhood over receives an airstrike, I think it will be quite obvious who was responsible and why.
Resistance in the US would not be like stories are made out to be in Afghanistan or the jungle refuges of Cuba. It would be in your neighbors home. It
would be in the grocery store down the street. It would be in the local bar. If the government ever decided to blow up such bases using their
grandstanding technology - everyone knows damn well how that would effect the outcome of such movements.
So no. I will not buy into the fear that the government boogey man is more technologically advanced than we are. I already know they are. But I also
know that in order for the power in America to stay in power, they need to appease the people, not make them all their enemies, and thus - their hands
are tied with just how much they would be capable to use against American people. Let them bring all the gases, sonar weapons, ect - it is still not
enough to the willpower of a strong resistance.
And do not ever forget, that just because the military has hold of advanced weaponry and it is illegal in public - does not mean the public cannot get
a hold of it. We all know that story. In fact, in some cases it is easier for the public to get a hold of more lethal weapons than the military can
due to the procedures, checks, and balances the military has to go through in order to use and apply such weapons to different units... and no, they
don't have an infinite supply of high tech weapons to go around to every soldier.
Last but not least, you assume the military would be on the government side when in fact, some of them will, those expecting a nice fat paycheck and
having no moral high ground - but many will be standing alongside of the resistance and even working both sides. That is the reality of it all my
It is all a big game of cat and mouse and the government has turned most everyone into mice to hide in their holes and never question the power
structure. All it takes is a little insight to realize that the whole structure is an illusion that can be walked right through.
