Citizens Would Win

Quote of the Day

And to the politicians who would so cavalierly violate the rights of their citizens, and who would threaten war so casually, I have a cliched phrase for you:

Molon Labe.

  1. “you keep using that word but I do not think it means what you think it means”
    Too many people forget that Thermopylae was a defeat for the Spartans that merely delayed the Persian advance for a few days. The real victory was achieved by those effete Athenians at Salamis
    Perhaps “welcome to the jungle” in Vietnamese would more accurately convey the impending defeat.

    • I don’t believe the Spartans at Thermopylae expected or intended to defeat the Persians. Their strategy was to delay them until the rest of Greece could muster sufficient forces. So they all perished, but I wouldn’t classify it as a “defeat” so much as a “sacrifice”.

  2. Very good. Agreed to almost all. Except maybe.
    “The second American Revolution is the fantasy of every gun nut, and the disdain of every pacifist urbanite.”
    Like paranoia, It’s not paranoid if they really are out to get you.
    As a life-long gun-nut. The complacency of the urban pacifist coupled with the active communist political insurgency pointed out even before Yuri confirmed my darkest suspicion. That CWII was NOT a fantasy. It’s a f–king nightmare that IS going to happen.
    Unless you all want to give in, own nothing, and eat the bugs?
    If not, gun-nut-fantasy-prepper was the only position left to you.
    Ever wonder why certain amount crazy vets live out in the woods? PTSD? certainly. Or it could be that what they just went through was OBVISIOSLY going to happen in American.
    And we should think of it more as wanting to get a “cave with a view”, rather than starving out in the cold as a refugee.
    Our real problem was timing. (But that’s always going to be the problem when you’re waiting to be attacked.)
    I would gladly suffer all the sneers/whines from pacifist bitches I’ve been exposed to in/all my life. As long as I didn’t have to look into their raped, demoralized, starving, eyes. (Which are always the victims of war, especially a civil one.)
    I didn’t even have to be in war to know that much.
    Cause all I’m going to be to do/say is: tried to tell you.
    And nobody is coming to save shit.

  3. War comes in many flavors. I’m thinking it will resemble “The Troubles” on a continental scale, more than anything else.

  4. The forces of liberty and peace and prosperity may not win, but the scum that started this because the idea that no one is in charge is hateful to them, and the urge to command is irresistible.
    The Communists will know they were in a fight, and they will learn anew that if you kick the lid off of Hell, you don’t know what is going to happen.
    We just need to know where they live when the lid comes off, because certainly they know where all of us live.

    • The way I see it is no one is going to win anything.
      That being said, the commies are easy to find. Their lazy, won’t/don’t know how to help, but still want to be fed.
      I wouldn’t worry about them much. Like Selco said. Chances are you will die of some infection, or some 13-year-old will shoot you in the back with an AK for the fun of it. They’ll be in the same boat as the rest of us. Except their lazy.
      As you say, when you kick the lid off hell. I think we’re going to be more worried about what to eat than what government we have.
      Government is for a civilized country. We won’t be seeing one again in our lifetime. However long that turns out to be.

  5. There is a template (actually several) for defeating an insurgency. The US military is mostly clueless about it but in theory at least they could figure it out. The really big question is what the field grade officers and senior NCOs would do. Follow orders or defect. I don’t have a clue and neither does the writer. I do know it doesn’t involve monolithic states or counting guns.

    And then there are the potential insurgents. What will it take to motivate them. The COVID lockdowns and the stolen elections didn’t motivate them. Perhaps gun confiscation will or perhaps not. Unless the authorities are really, really stupid, they won’t go door to door. Instead they will make some examples perhaps even non-violent examples as in freezing bank accounts and denying health care. Fidelito showed the way.

    Insurgencies are most successful when fought against a foreign enemy. It has been the misfortune of the American military to always be that foreign enemy. Won’t be that way here unless potential insurgents can get over their love affair with the American Empire. We need to define the other side as TWANLOC and then as just outright foreign.
