Imagine Tea Party extremists seizing control of a South Carolina town and the Army being sent in to crush the rebellion. This farcical vision is now part of the discussion in professional military circles.
At issue is an article in the respected Small Wars Journal titled Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A Vision of the Future.

“If the trend continues, by 2016 the military will be largely populated by balkanized enclaves of victim groups more intent on getting back at their oppressors than on defending their country....”
All of the military has been turned into a social experiment by the libs.
My son is doing his duty, which basically breaks down to obeying the lawful orders of his immediate superiors. When you were in the military what did you do to correct the Constitutional problems with the President and the Joint Chiefs?
Interesting to ponder if something had spurred Lee to change his mind in April of 65 instead of 70. If he had given the order to head for the hills and begin “irregular operations,” who knows what the USA would look like today? A GW could have stretched on for a decade or longer. The North might well have quit first. Interesting alt history.
The military probably has plans for dealing with domestic insurrections. These two writers, who don't have any real authority, introduced the "tea party" into discussion of such plans, even though it doesn't really fit -- probably because they didn't know what the "tea party" was, though maybe because they wanted to rile a lot of people up and create a commotion. It looks like it worked.
It always comes down to the spending loot and the groceries. If the fedgov ends up shattering the economy, the military will walk if they can't be fed.
The real fight is the Looters and Moochers vs the Producers. (As Neil Boortz aptly puts it.)
The govt. Looters loot the Producers to buy votes from the Moochers. It’s a simple as that. And now it’s coming to a head.
That's manifest in some of the quotes we periodically see out of DU.
“Going back to an 1800’s technology also means going back to an 1800’s population.”
Actually, it would have to rise back UP to an 1800s population.
The massive dislocation die-off might take us well below sustainable 1800s pop. levels.
How do you explain the COL’s obvious derangement or motivation, in naming a regional and ethnic “National Villain” in this scenario, instead of a generic “Pineland Liberation Army” as has been the protocal?
Was his half-byline hijacked?
I rule out just plain stupid.
Fancy, pedigreed and degreed stupid, maybe.
“Think about that for a while.”
And sometimes “emergency orders” and “decrees” are not announced publicly at all.
That is, the FBI could turn into the KGB, and we would not be informed, until we noticed that some posters were no longer posting in places like this one.
338: A great caliber, another great post.
Obama is getting scared.
I reported you to Admin after you added me to the list. Is that still okay?
What did the Admin say?
But, a possible outcome.
Admin almost never speaks to me. Sigh... ;-)
