“It is not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog”
This axiom is soon going to be put to the test in the United States. In any upcoming revolution, the American people will be outnumbered by foreign troops and Artificially Intelligent Robots and other high tech devices designed to destroy any rebellion. The Russians could be coming down our chimneys by Christmas. With the Russians and the Chinese gaining a foothold in the Middle East, the isolation of our allies by Putin’s superior strategies, and the soon-t0-be-collapsing economy, America will soon become Amerika.
In the next three parts of this series, I will detail how America is being carved up like a Thanksgiving turkey. America has no chance of surviving its massive debt, impending war and the social chaos that will very soon consume this country.
The Coming Three Part Series of the Demise of America
In am in the midst of creating a three part series which connects the dots and details connected with America’s impending fall as a world power. Presently, America is the victim of a three part strategy designed to fundamentally transform the country that includes the following plan: (1) the pre-collapse strategies (e.g. immigration, etc); (2) the destruction of the American military in the coming war; and, (3) post-American collapse strategies which will totally enslave the remaining Americans.
In my personal estimation and the estimation of my many of my key sources, there is no way to avoid a catastrophic collapse of the United States. However, even in a post-collapse America, there is still one option left to the American people that would keep, at the idea, of American society alive.
America’s Only Viable Option
While some of the 260+ command level officers fired by Obama are privately informing many of us in the media about the current state of affairs, they are not on the record. Other than self-preservation, the major reason why these former military commanders are not on the record is because some of them are involved in planning a guerrilla war against the occupation forces commanded by this administration under the auspices of DHS. One of my sources state that the coming civil war will be a guerrilla war and it will be prolonged. Another former General has told me that the American people do not have the stomach for guerrilla war and that majority of our people will lay down like sheep and be slaughtered. The latter point will be addressed in a future article. This article deals with an analysis of the means of forcible resistance, available to the American people, from which to resist the tyrannical takeover of the United States government by the banksters and their minions.
The remainder of this article is written for a time in the future when our armies are defeated, our economy has collapsed and we are occupied by foreign based UN troops
Why There Must Be a Guerrilla War
There are a total of 1,455,375 active personnel in the US military. The United States has over 200,000 troops stationed in 144 countries. These 200,000 men and women will not likely be a factor in the coming conflict and will prove to be in grave danger in the coming conflict.
I constantly have former military write to my website and proclaim their allegiance to the Constitution and pledge to destroy all enemies both foreign and domestic. I do not doubt their resolve or courage, however, there are not 30 million combat ready veterans, with the technological means and military organizational skills who would be ready to fight as they frequently claim. There are only 1.8 million veterans who are under the age of 35, which would be the prime fighting age for any resistance force. This means that in the best case scenario, that any resistance that the occupation forces could muster would consist of about 2.5 million men who have combat training in both our active duty personnel and our veterans. The mere size of the army that the Chinese could muster, in addition to the DHS, and the Russians, would dwarf any force that the American people could place on the battlefield. And if the confrontation came following a power grid take down, the odds would be worse.
The only choice that this country would have to resist the coming occupation and genocidal purge would be to make the war a guerrilla war.
The Sides Are Drawn
The coming civil war will consist of the present administration, the DHS, the Chinese, and the Russians versus the American military and the American people.
Could a guerrilla war succeed? Is America equipped to fight a guerrilla war?
Four Types of Conflict
Military strategists identify four levels of conflict; (1) nuclear war is the trump card of all conflicts; 2) conventional warfare; (3) guerrilla warfare; and, (4) terrorism.
Terrorism is the least preferred option by any insurgent group. With terrorism, there is absolutely no hope of final victory because territory is never occupied. For that reason, nobody aspires to engage in terrorism if they have a viable alternative and the American people do have a choice given how well armed we are. However, terrorism arising out of a defeated guerrilla force is a distinct possibility as it would represent American guerrilla’s fallback position should they be defeated.
Please allow me to make one point perfectly clear, all of us, in these dire circumstances will be front line participants. Being a sheep will not ensure survival, it will only mean that by living the life of a sheep, means that you will die like a sheep. Most Americans will be targets of the occupation forces as the MIAC Report which labeled Libertarians, Constitutionalists, Second Amendment Supporters, Ron Paul Supporters, veterans and now Christians are considered domestic terrorists. Does it make a little more sense as to why DHS made these bold proclamations as to who is a domestic terrorist?
DHS understands and has demonstrated their understanding of these facts and has also prepared for what I just wrote about in the previous paragraph.
Can a Guerrilla War Succeed?
Guerrilla warfare, for most of human history, is not new. Tribal war, which traditionally pits one guerrilla force against another, is the oldest form of warfare. The new “conventional” form of warfare, which pits guerrillas against “conventional” forces, is more recent as it arose in Mesopotamia 5,000 years ago.
The good news for future American freedom fighters is that guerrilla war has been getting more successful since 1945, but unfortunately guerrilla fighters still lose most of the time. An analysis of past conflicts featuring guerrilla war, reveals that only 25% of guerrilla forces, out of 443 such conflicts since 1775, were successful. The government prevailed almost 64% of the time with the remainder of the conflicts ended in a stalemate. Conversely, since the end of WWII, the percentage of success for guerrilla forces has indeed gone up to 39.6%. Yet that still means that government forces have continued to prevail 51% of the time.
When the American people engage in a guerrilla war in the upcoming years, the people have less than a 40% chance of success.
Guerrilla wars are rarely short and as a result do not favor the American culture and psychological makeup because of our collective psyche of instant gratification. When Americans flip the switch on the wall, we expect the light to come on. Will Americans set aside their entitlements as well as their entrenched soft lifestyle and rise to the occasion? A future article will examine the psychological elements needed to engage in a guerrilla war.
Successful Guerrilla War
The Vietnamese culture with an external locus of control predominating the people in which the group is more important than the individual is the perfect mindset for guerrilla fighters. This could prove to be the American rebels biggest challenge because guerrilla warfare is not something that one does like driving over a speed bump. It is a way of life, a very hard way of life filled with misery, extreme sacrifice and unspeakable losses.
Successful guerrilla leaders such as Lawrence of Arabia, Mao, Castro and Giap all concur that there are three phases of any guerrilla war. However, before the phases can unfold there are two preconditions which must be met.
The first condition which is a prerequisite for guerrilla war, is based upon the fact that there has to be a decisive battle for the belief systems of the people as a whole. The globalists have invested billions of dollars in order to dominate the mainstream media. On the other side is the independent media. Both sides are vying for control of the belief systems of the country.
There are two very distinct ideologies playing out today in the court of public opinion. On one hand, the future rebels are adept at exposing the loss of national sovereignty and civil liberties every chance they get. Conversely, the globalist dominated media is spending billions of dollars to convince the masses that there is no such thing as a conspiracy theory and despite some governmental incompetence, the government loves and protects its people. And the globalists are being somewhat effective. Have you ever noticed that when you are describing a globalist inspired conspiracy such as what happened at Benghazi, and no matter how well documented your position is, that your audience frequently responds with “you must be one of these conspiracy theorists.” Our facts are rarely attacked because they are generally accurate, but the idea of the existence of any kind of conspiracy is what gets challenged. This kind of programming coming from the media is brilliant and effective. Who is winning this war of words? The jury is still out, but the unmistakable conclusion is that the ideological battle lines for the upcoming conflict have clearly been drawn.
The globalists sell the sheep on the notion that we have to control you to protect you (from a threat of our creation), and the other side is saying, “we will take our chances, give us freedom.”
The second precondition which must be met prior to descending into guerrilla war consists of both sides engaging in an arms race. In response to the Obama administration’s threat of seizing our guns for the false flag events of the Aurora Batman massacre and now in Oregon, Americans went on a gun-buying frenzy which continues to this day. DHS has engaged in their own arms buildup as they have purchased 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition to go with 2700 new armored personnel carriers and that is not all. The federal government has invested in 30,000 drones, super soldier robots and intelligence gathering techniques which are mind-blowing. And lets not forget about the untold number of foreign troops available to subjugate the American people. The other side is prepared to lock and load for what is coming. Former members of the military are waiting for many more of the American people to wake up as to what has happened to their country.
The Instruments of Oppression
The architect of the Viet Cong Resistance, Vo Nguyen Giap, once said that the war against the French, and later against the Americans was a “People’s War”. The center of gravity is always the people. This isn’t only the center of gravity of the enemy but also the center of gravity of one’s own forces. The “hearts and minds” of the people decide the victor in any “People’s War”. Because of this, the role of the Independent media has never been more critical.
Vo Nugyen Giap
Giap further proclaimed that, “The war of liberation of the Vietnamese people proves that, in the face of an enemy as powerful as he is cruel, victory is possible only by uniting the whole people within the bosom of a firm and wide national united front based on the worker-peasant alliance.”(The Military Art of People’s War, p. 97-98).
Giap tells us that fear of the oppressor is a strong ally. Tell your neighbors about DHS and their 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition and their 2700 armored personnel carriers. Speak about the Civilian Inmate Labor Program. Let people know they can be snatched off the street without due process under the NDAA. Talk to your friends about the detention camps and the Wackenhut buses that will take you there along with the trains containing shackles. Ask your neighbors how we can pay off $238 trillion dollars in unfunded mandates or bail-out the bankers one quadrillion derivatives debt? Make your friends see that a currency collapse is imminent.
The globalists have even invented another term to complement the phrase “conspiracy theorist” and that term is fear-monger. If one tries to alert the public as to the dangers which lie in front of us, you are labeled a “fear-monger”. Wear that label as a badge of honor for it is fearful to have your bank account, pension, mortgage, civil liberties and even your very life stolen. Extermination of Christians and transhumanism are indeed fearful and the globalist occupation leaders openly brag about all of these elements as being a necessary part of their agenda to establish a New World Order. This debate over a New World Order is not just about freedom and the type of economic and political system that we will have, it is about mankind’s right to survive..
It is time to scare the excrement out our fellow countrymen because these threats are real and they are life-threatening for the majority. Fact-based fear and repetition of the message are our best friends in terms of driving the public to our side. Subsequently, when the active part of the guerrilla war commences, the leaders of the revolution will have the support of the people. However, don’t waste time on the hard core sheep among us. We do not need a majority of the population to wage a successful guerrilla war as this was proven during the American Revolution.
Giap was brilliant at couching their words in such a way as to demonize his enemies, thus drawing closer support from the people. Notice his use of the term “The People’s War.” The “people” already resent the elite because they know that they are not and never will be part of the elite.
Average people understand that the golden rule is based upon those who have the gold, get to make the rules. Giap was a master at turning envy into resentment and then into hatred. People emote before they act. Consequently, we in the independent media need to continue to appeal to the emotions of the people.
Remember, the use of the term “people” builds a sense of collective identity that is needed in every successful revolution. Therefore, fellow Americans, every word coming out of your mouth must speak of these problems in the collective. This is class warfare and you need to pound the message into people’s head that the leaders of the major corporations pay no tax and you work until June of each year paying off your debt to this criminal government.
If you are talking to your friends about baseball, the weather and your child’s report card, do not fail to drop in a zinger about the globalists.
Winning the Minds of the People
The late Colonel David Hackworth, a highly decorated Vietnam war veteran, once told PBS that he knew very early on, that if the US was going to win the Vietnam War, they had to win the people. The French made the mistake of ignoring the people and the Americans committed the same mistake. The Viet Minh and later the Viet Cong won the hearts and the minds of the people and thus, won each guerrilla conflict.
Hackworth related the following metaphor in his PBS interview, “The guerrilla is the fish and the people are the water. If you want to kill the fish, you remove the water. If you want to kill the guerrilla, you remove the people, because they find all kinds of assistance, medical help, they put out the booby-traps, they provide the intelligence and they provide the trail-watchers. They are the sea in which the guerrilla swims.”
The “People” should commence a letter writing campaign to every friend and relative in the military and the message should be very blunt and very simple: “We need you to save us from the banksters who have hijacked our government”. The Nazi’s used to say that if one told a big enough lie, often enough, it would be believed. The same works for the truth. Remember, we do not need the size of the military as much as we need their technology.
Can Americans Win a Guerrilla War Against the Banker Occupation Forces? This is still an open question and the answer to the question should be rephrased to “Does America have the stomach fight a guerrilla war against the banker occupation forces?” This will be covered in a future article. Also covered in a future article is the three pronged strategy being employed to bring the United States to its knees.
