i prefer constantly adaptive. defensive, offensive, mobile, static. when my enemy expands i retract, when my enemy retracts i expand. like the snake, when you attack its middle, each side defends, attack one side the middle with the opposite side defends. the powers that be in a strategic sense do not have enough moral influence due to a well informed, armed, disciplined, and trained percent of the population who foresees the trap through the guise of propaganda. a mass shooting, well staged is the perfect smokescreen for disarmament propaganda. i believe the british people have succumbed to being mislead in an evolutionary backwards direction. you cannot accept the spectrum of weaponry you have now for if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. i say convince people to see it our way. we've taken and given good advice back and forth, bad advice back and forth, if anybodys opinion means anything over there, inspire people to say, "hang on, why does the military get these guns and we don't? who the hell says they are more trustworthy?" has anybody seen the movie 12 angry men? if you convince 12 people and they convince 12 people, things can turn around
