Righto, lets have a brief thought experiment.
The FEDS for some reason actually DID decide to DESTROY their own credibility and assassinate dissidents.
By some ACT OF GOD you get all of the states in America to protest at once.
Do you know anything about logistics?
Anything about intelligence gathering and analysis?
Do you know how to fire a mortar? Or even where to find one with ammunition?
Would you know how to get into contact with groups from another country for support?
What about mechanics? Mechanics for something like a jet or helicopter or tank.
Do you know anything about controlling and modifying a battlefield?
What about basic politics? Because wars (even civil wars,) are merely an extension of politics.
Would you be so sure that whoever came out on top after a civil war was the "good guy"?
If they weren't would you know how to execute a coup?
How about machine logic?
Naval warfare theory?
What about SIGINT?
Soft AI vs hard AI?
Basic leadership skills?
I'm guessing that while many of you are dead set on instigating hostilities, once they commenced you wouldn't know what to do besides "shoot at stuff
that moves," which isn't a bad idea. But it isn't a very GOOD one either.
I'm guessing most of you are like me, more prone to SOA thinking and talking on a computer and having a beer/I'm not allowed to talk about it
