Suppose the roundups have begun....

Suppose you live in a country where the police have been militarized. The country is on a war footing and the police and military have just started "roundups". Speak out against the regime and you might dissappear. Offend someome in government and you might dissappear. Expose criminal activity by the government, their agencies or their friends and you might dissappear. There are a ton of other "offences" where you can just dissappear. There are rumors that these offenders are sent to re-education camps but no one really knows for sure 'cause they never come back.

You've listened to the propaganda 'till you think you're gonna puke. The official version of events is so poorly constructed that it offends the senses of anyone capable of critical thought. You can't help yourtself, you have to speak out and you don't live in a "free speach zone". You know they will come for you.

You've resolved that you will not go willingly into oblivion. You want to take a few of these black-suited, jack-booted thugs with you. The population has long been denied firearms so .... what implements of destruction will you use?

Perhaps you'll use the principle of the deadfall. If the principle were scaled up, you could drop a building on the offending criminals. Perhaps you could funnel the bad guys thru a gauntlet and then drown them with water or hose them down with acid (commercial grades or improvised battery acid) . Perhaps you would use a little improvised chemistry? Maybe you would set small ambushes and then take their weapons? Which ideas work best? What were the most sucessful tactics used by the varying resistance movements against the Nazis and Communists?

Suppose one of these "black-suited jack-booted thugs" signed up on a forum and asked your questions, hoping to get someone to admit to planning criminal acts.

Would you answer your questions?

Please resort to political activism. not violet vigilantism. Those "guy"s you want to "target" are people to with family's & friends there in the same boat you are, have the same oppressors. You want to awaken them not destroy them.

you are aether some naive child or a Fed.

I would of course accept the situation fully and comply with out question.
I would laugh and giggle and rejoice for such a thing to occur and can't wait for it to happen.

Why do you ask ?

The police in Canada and the US are both being militarized...
The sole purpose will be for them to rip people out of their homes to be killed off in the near future...
this is why I am becoming a police officer haha

When nwo agenda becomes apparent to most, what kind of a resistance we put up will be the question. In the US there is a constitutional legally binding clause about what citizens are supposed to be doing, they are required to do to reinstate the constitution.

The best beginnings will be public outcry, protests and if they respond in violence then it depends on the peoples will to truly be free.

"the people" are mostly clueless as to what NWO means for everyone, this meaning... there will be very small resistance.

I doubt everyone but myself.
The "government"(lol) will have its way if it wants to.. and there is nothing we can really do about it unless these people are assassinated.. (not saying I'm try to kill anyone)

Eastern European communism collapsed because of economic absurdity & the financial muscle of the West, particularly the US & its military expenditure. Any resistance, be it Hungary, Czechoslovakia or Poland, was completely suppressed by the Soviet military.

Nazi Germany only collapsed because of Allied brute force. Resistance in France resulted in the horror of villages such as Oradour-sur-Glane being simply wiped off the map.

In your scenario there's no-one coming to help, no external force being applied to save you or your nation, its freedoms & liberties. You'll either go out in a blaze of glory, on your own or learn to keep your mouth shut. Simple as.

There are lots of ways, depending how psychotic you are.

Vehicle strikes, fires, rocks, yes, jacking weapons.

How do you bring down a building though? Ah you could ask the guys who brought down the three trade centers. They're at the Pentagon.

If the powers that be try to pacify America, they will fight far worse battle than they fought in Iraq.

There are millions of guns out there in the hands of Americans and Canadians.

I'd love to see the attempted roundups fail and video of dead or dying attackers who choked on a load they couldn't handle.
