Having read what the op had written, and giving it much thought the following can be stated:
Civil war is a messy thing, far more than any other armed conflict. It will split families apart, and often pit brother against brother. It tears
countries apart, and are very messy, unlike any other war or armed conflict that we see, it is one of the far worse of all wars.
People in this country often talk about taking military action against the federal government, a few have in the past attempted such, when they feel
that their rights are trampled on or taken away. And to that end while it is the right of the people to demand redress, before any shot is fired or
any act of violence the question must be asked as to why such is needed and or required.
While we, the citizens may know the answer to such, if we look back at history, with any and every revolution or civil war, there is always a
declaration, and in that declaration, the arguments and reasons for these actions are given. The reason for this is 2 fold, one is it lets the rest
of the world know why such actions are being taken, and to gather the public support, of which it is the latter that is required in any civil war. If
the general public does not support such actions, then if those who would advocate civil war or armed rebellion, and they are not convienced, then it
is doomed to fail.
The second part and this is the one that is the most messy of all, what happens after all of the dust has settled and everything is said and done. In
times past, with every other civil war, and history is loaded with such, there are backlashes and cruelty that is seen and often inflictedon neighbors
and those who are precieved as the enemy. If you look at the numerous conflicts in Africa, where civil wars have taken off, it is brutal to the
In all of the discussions, when there are uprisising of the people in the US, there lacks several things, one is a list of grievences that pass the
test that would convience 2 groups of people, the first is other countries, and the other is the very people that they are stating that they are
wanting to help. The other is a leader(s) who are willing to stand up and die for their belief. Such has not been seen in this country since the
late 1960's, when social change was brought about by one person, and his message still rings through today.
