What is this “doorstep” fantasy all over the place? It’s silly to allow an enemy to fix you in an inescapable position.
If a totalitarian government happened here, it’d make much more sense to tke advantage of the enemy’s predictable patterns of behavior to engage them somewhere besides your doorstep. Of course, this should be at a time of your choosing. Vasily Zaitsev was quoted as saying “impatience is death”.
Also, when targeting them, it would always be nice to place a barrier between your position and the target. Say, a river, a deep gorge, a busy interstate highway, etc. This means that in the unhappy event that one of the UN gun confiscation troops spots you, they still cannot easily storm your position.
Things like this could instill deep paralytic fear in these Pakistani troops we must surely be speaking of.
Interesting parlor conversation though.
I don't get the assumption that after the 20th century and it's historical lessons, anyone would sit at home, waiting for the knock on the door.
We all know where that winds up.
I have to chuckle at this. By in large, Gov't does not forcefully have to take the weapons and arms of the individual.
As a whole, Americans comply with the law. So Gov't creates laws to control the sheep.
We already have enough laws on the books to take guns away. There aren't many people who stand against gun permits, and other controls on weapons. As a American, we don't need a permit to carry or have a gun. Nor should there be any restriction on any such weapon. Yet, will still as a whole, comply. Class III, FFL, lol.
Even criminals are outlawed and prevented from having a gun in most cases! Even a criminal should have the basic right to defend themselves. As we create more laws, we will have more criminals. The police state will create a criminal out of everyone. Throw in medication and other 'things' that in the future will prevent you from getting a gun.
By force, lol.
FMCDH is a suicide gospel for people we cannot afford to lose. Engaging a trained tactical squad on your doorstep with your babies sleeping upstairs is romantic nonsense.
There are, well, let's say MANY soft targets on which the regime relies for its survival, the propaganda organs being first on the list. They cannot possibly cover them all.
If they mean to have a war (not yet totally clear, IMO), but if they do, let's hope more than a few of the patriots are familiar with Sun Tzu.
