"Insurgency is best defined as an organized movement aimed at the overthrow or destruction of a constituted government through the use of subversion, espionage, terrorism and armed conflict… Terrorism is not an end in itself.Jun 11, 2008I personally think that the above definition is wrong. An insurgency does NOT necessarily have to be an organized movement. It is enough for a percentage of like minded people in a nation thinking and acting in concert OR supporting those that are active for an insurgency to grow.
Consider what we've seen over the course of the last couple of days. Everyone remembers Dallas. Then we've seen numerous assaults across the country against police ending with today's drama in Baton Rouge.
Check out what the President had to say about things today.
Did you check out the vid? Did you notice no talk about gun control? Did you hear the appeal to "come together"? Have you taken note of what many will call concern but I call almost fear in the voice?
Call me tin hattish, but something has changed. I don't know what it is. I have no access to whatever intel the Feds have but I am seeing real concern here.
Remember your history. In most insurgency's the first victims are locals. Police, School Teacher, Councilmen etc....whoever is seen as being connected to the govt are usually the first targets. That's where McVeigh went wrong. He targeted the Federal Govt instead of attacking low hanging fruit.
Are we seeing the beginning of an insurgency? I doubt it. Are we seeing the beginning of some serious assaults on police? Yeah. I'm betting on it. Consider all the various groups that have yet to go active. Sovereign Citizens, Black and White Separatists, Militia Groups and Mexican drug cartels....I didn't even touch on ISIS or Al Qaeda yet!
2016 is going to be historic....I can't wait for this year to end. We need a break from interesting times.
Side note: What do you call an old, fat, out of shape prepper? A supply point!
