Former red team planner for the government here.This post is probably a hoax, but some of it is plausible.
The United States Government has extensively studied the concept of second American Civil War (along the assumption that it will be left versus right. HMM. I WONDER WHY THEY MIGHT POSSIBLY DO THAT.)
Their conclusion is as follows: They don’t have a snowball’s chance in Hell of winning. The moment civil war is declared, the government loses. No scenario or outcome ends in their success. Period. It’s just a matter of how long it takes.
Private rifles and handguns are pretty feeble compared to US military firepower, but most of those military weapons will be useless against a truly popular uprising. It would be a bloody disaster.
