The irony of the Battle of the Alamo , which was one of the most famous U.S. combat legends of all time, having taken place in Texas, should not be
lost in this day & age.
The ideal of America as a true Republic and all for which it stands, will never fall as long as there is a Texas.
Should TSHTF for whatever reason, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Louisiana stand with Texas, no questions asked.
The influence and effect of the loss of ArkLaTexOma would have on the U.S. as a whole, would be strategically and resourcefully devastating.
For one, the control of the Mississippi and the Gulf. For two, control of the refinement of most energy resources. For three, there are 4 Navy
bases, 4 Army bases and 7 Air Force bases just in the State of Texas alone. Even so, Barksdale Airforce Base in Louisiana, which houses the Nation's
three intercontinental ballistic missile wings-- the two B-52 wings and the only B-2 wing, could wipe out half the continental U.S. on their lunch
I do not see America going to war against itself, since it would logistically make no sense and most likely drag on for generations of civil war &
guerrilla rebellion. With the current population statistics, anyway.
For America to truly fall, there would have to be some sort of coordinated effort taken out from the inside with a non-American, dissociative task
General, normal, everyday Americans are just not going to all of a sudden start killing each other. That is why most of the bizarre headlines about
crazies shooting up random people are perceived as highly suspect and incomprehensible to the majority of the U.S. population.
