There Will Be No Second American Revolution: The Futility of an Armed Revolt

This article is a must read for anyone in America or those outside of America wanting to see the true crisis the nation is soon to face.

It’s been building up for years, and the nation is indeed in freefall. The only thing left for America is hitting the bottom. It’s a given, and not an ‘if’ but ‘when’ type of scenario. America will see its second civil war, much bloodier than the first. The tragedy of it all, and the article hits the nail on the head: The true American patriots who love their nation will not succeed in any armed revolt. There will be no second revolution, only a failed attempt at best.

Violence is indeed not the solution and America cannot be retaken by force. Those who are gearing up for this battle with all the guns in the world will simply lose. This is not an attack on the Second Amendment or gun ownership, because that right is fully supported here. The point is this: If you live by the sword, you will die by the sword. By the time the second revolution comes, your guns will be rendered meaningless, as you will simply be droned from 50,000 feet above. You cannot compete against force multipliers and a tyrannical government that has purchased enough bullets for every citizen to receive six.

The upcoming crisis calls for wisdom, understanding, patience, discernment and most importantly above all: God.

Note: Since this article is such a well written, very informative and thorough piece, most of it will remained here for archiving purposes.

All that remains to be seen is who—or what—will set fire to the fuse.

We are poised at what seems to be the pinnacle of a manufactured breakdown, with police shooting unarmed citizens, snipers shooting police, global and domestic violence rising, and a political showdown between two presidential candidates equally matched in unpopularity. Continue reading

America the Weak

The intent of this essay is to advance several observations about how we plan and fight wars, in order to shed light upon why we are performing so poorly. We invaded both Afghanistan and Iraq with inchoate plans and inadequate forces to establish post-war security and governance. After winning the first battle in both countries, President George W. Bush offhandedly decided to build democratic nations, a task for which our State Department and US Agency for International Development had no competence or interest. By default, the mission fell to our military, also without competence but with unflagging devotion and determination.

When 2011 arrived, President Barack Obama went against the recommendations of the intelligence community, the Pentagon, and the State Department. Instead of politically maneuvering to keep a residual force to check al-Maliki’s dark instincts, Obama pulled out all our troops. He fulfilled Bush’s foolish promise. Al-Maliki then proceeded to oppress the Sunnis, leading to the reemergence of the extremists now called the Islamic State. Obama quit, but Bush made it easy for him to do so.
