"Next Year's Wars"

"Only the dead have seen the end of war."

Foreign Policy magazine presents: "The 16 brewing conflicts to watch for in 2011."

And if the ATF, either inadvertently or at the behest of its Obamanoid masters, does something Waco-stupid again, make it 17. And that one would dwarf all the rest.

Doesn't necessarily have to be the feds.

A Taser death. The officers involved would rather not talk about it, of course. The police union says it's about time officers in such circumstances were treated more gently and fairly.
We killed a guy. That's all you need to know. Now f--- off.

Amen to that.

Ah, but Bill Kinstone totally discounts that possibility. Not sure which Fusion Center he is from...

Rousted by the FBI anti-terrorism task force and charged with disorderly conduct for painting the Fourth Amendment on his bare chest and taking his shirt off at the airport.
A 20-minute drive from the place Patrick Henry cried "Give me liberty, or give me death!"

Wish I hadda known. People shouldn't do this kind of thing without 20-30 close friends. Waiting OUTSIDE the TSA secure zone, if you take my meaning.
These ARE the good old days. They're going to look back and wish and pray for this kind of "disorder."

Public sentiment and anger is at a place now that I find interesting. You can see things said on mainstream websites that never would have been said a few years ago.

The tinder is getting really, really dry here in our country.

I have come to the conclusion after a lot of meditation and cogitation that no matter what happens, no matter if there is an incident that makes the Branch Davidian standoff look like a kindergarten picnic, ANY response by the malitias or whomever is going to be portrayed in the lame stream media as the equivalent of Ft. Sumter. Unless what the feds do is soooooo egregious and sooooooo visible that no rational, sensible person could say the people's response was justified (and even then) the lame stream media will howl that what the govt did was justified, and even if it was not the response was not justified.

With the other side owning the media in fee simple, I do not believe that the rank and file sheeple will believe that the feds started anything. I know the leftist pundits will deny the feds were at fault.

Be it a "Ruby Ridge", a "Waco" or a super "New Orleans" the media will portray any response as unprovoked rebellion.

Defender-
We need several hundred thousand more disorderly conduct charges.

Bad Cyborg,

You are likely right. Not taking the Fedgov's side would be suicide for a media organization.

Even other patriots would scatter and trip over themselves to put distance between the "rash" actions of the citizens daring to resist. We all want to look oh so legitimate. Oh so respectable. Oh so morally high-ground-ish.

Any and every bit of resistance will be isolated, demonized, and attacked. The feds never start anything. They are the government, see, and therefore automatically legitimate. ;-{

If, for instance, someone would have forcibly resisted the theft of his or her firearms during Katrina...would it have been portrayed as a citizen righteously defending his liberties, or another hooligan taking shots at the poor, noble policeman?

I agree with the "no free Katrinas" idea. Let's take it a step further, though. Just as TSA trying to prevent another 9-11 is reactive, not proactive, focusing only on Katrina and Waco is reactive. The SSI declaration on Katrina and Waco is good and as it should be. Don't misunderstand. I'm merely saying that we should be on the lookout, proactively looking for the next attack on our liberties.

It actually could be the Feds that start it for us:

e.g. the Mexican narcowar spreads from Nuevo Laredo and Ciudad Juarez into Texas. Then, our own Feds bumble into action against the justified response from our armed citizenry.

Just remember that "lone wolf" is what they fear the most. And "grey man" "lone wolf" is especially frightening to them. You need to look around YOUR AO, of course, but the best selling vehicle for quite a few years has been the Ford F150. Most popular color has been silver. Probably won't work in New York City, but elsewhere...

And the Religion of Peace will take care of the situation in New York City.
