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.

  1. I agree. I was surprised that they predicted was so soon, in a matter of months. Shocking. And more laughable was the thought of Russia ending up controlling more than half of the former "states". My goodness they have good imaginations!

  2. Well said, sir. I agree that political unrest (which we're seeing right now) is not the same as civil war. I'm betting that the "report" by the former soviet scientists certainly has set BHO and his socialists thinking about what could happen.

    Your observation about the role of the constitution in the oaths our servicemen take is spot on. BHO is just another instrument in support and defense the Constitution. To that end, he wasn't a particularly good choice, but America needs to find this out for herself.

  3. Ah, those rascally Russian analysts, gotta love 'em. Just in case they're on to something here, how does one go about signing up with one side or the other?

    Are there going to be recruiting offices springing up for each side?

    Just curious.

  4. This surely must be wishful thinking on behalf of the Putin people.

  5. My read on this is it should be taken as a warning of our perceived weakness to other nations and not as gospel to the future. The world wars of the 1900's started because countries though they could get away with things because the West and the US was weak and unable to counter them. This is the lesson to take away from this story...

  6. I had a crazy thought last night. How many soldiers do we have left after we ship more to Afganistan? Remember when the English invaded and every man with a gun had to bear arms? We are going to be so thin right now I may have to pull out my shotgun to ward off Russians/ Chinese or anyone else who realizes we are now weak.

  7. Full agreement with LL; Plus, nothing will pull the American people together better then an outside threat. Elections are a year away and that is a short time as far as politicians are concerned.

    My questions are; To whose purpose was this little report leaked/broadcasted? Was it someone in our current administration hoping to get the reeducation camps started, so internment of bad-thinkers can follow? Or did the Russians lose their Charlie Daniels' Record collections???
