America's Option

In the referenced link above, MAINFO quotes Russian Analysts who are predicting a civil war in the United States commencing in early 2010.
Russian Military Analysts are reporting to Prime Minister Putin that US President Barack Obama has issued orders to his Northern Command’s (USNORTHCOM) top leader, US Air Force General Gene Renuart, to “begin immediately” increasing his military forces to 1 million troops by January 30, 2010, in what these reports warn is an expected outbreak of civil war within the United States before the end of winter.
I think we all agree that the United States is in a tight space, made tighter by the irresponsible policies of the Barack Hussein Obama Administration and the US Congress, however the Russians are more hysterical than usual in their predictions of a civil war within the United States by the end of winter 2010.

The people of the United States, albeit foolishly, elected Barack Hussein Obama to be their leader. Buyer's remorse has followed and a number of conservatives have had the chance to say, "I told you so." There is another election in 2010 and people will have the opportunity to make a choice to change the direction of the legislature - or - to keep the Democrats in power, led by such stalwarts as Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Never underestimate the stupidity of the general public - so they may remain in office.

Buyer's remorse/voter's remorse rarely translates into a civil war. And if there was public unrest, I don't know which side the military or police would land on. My sense is that they would be loyal to their oaths of office. I don't think that Barack Hussein Obama is entirely comfortable with that, because the oath of office is to the Constitution and not to Dear Leader personally.

However, to suggest civil war is to lack an understanding of the American people - at this stage of the game.
