A Pep Talk About World War III
You know, I never see this scenario mentioned-in survival forums, on gun blogs. Or if it is, it is always some Red Dawn variant or maybe a UN takeover at the outside, something with a very clear USA = GOOD GUYS motif. But I want to bring up something that the bent angle of my dope addled mind can see, but your nice, upright citizen mind has probably not considered.
What if we-not the Russians, not the Chicoms, not the Muslims-are the imperial power in the next world war? And what if that war has already started?
That a world war is coming is, well, pretty much proven by history. Sooner or later, there is always a fucking world war. But even as I see patriots scrambling to fight the evil empire at home, I think "well...what is the cheapest way to buy the loyalty of the citizens?" Generally, with lots of foreign blood. Again, that is sociological and historical fact-focusing your rage outward means you stop asking nasty questions about your civil liberties. And that doesn't even count the staggering majority that will settle down as soon as R's start replacing D's in fedgov.
I'm gonna be honest, America. This question makes my stomach quease. But we already have the military power to do this thing, with the strategic bases to make it happen quickly, and, ha ha, oh yeah, a motherfucking precedent for whatever stupid jackoff occupies the oval office to go to war without the approval of Congress. So whats a brother to do? I don't want to support the evil world conquering empire, but I also don't really want to live in a country that *loses* a fuckin' world war. Or even one that wins, because by the time you win, you are already such a bastard that it doesn't matter.
I don't know what the answer to this one is. But I want it out there, because it seems like a lot of people haven't thought of it that way, for all the "OMG OBAMA = NAZI" rhetoric that gets bandied around.
I want you to wonder, patriots, threepers, preppers, gun nuts, agitators, subversives, scumfucks like me. I want you all to wonder about where you stand in that theoretical conflict. Because the scenario may be the one you least expect-and this one is more likely than you think.
