Is the United State's President preparing for a civil uprising? According to the EUTimes' report posted November 28th, Russian Officials seem to be reporting an expected 'homeland troop build-up' of one million US deployed active military. The report indicates that Obama is expecting absolute civil unrest before the Spring.
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 have previously posted opinions on Russia's expected US break-up here, have speculated on the Federal Government's plan and preparation to wage a civil war against the people here, and the destructive nature such a war would have on the citizens of the US here.
What many people fail to realize is that a comparison to the US Civil War for a situation such as the one in which we are finding ourselves is flat ignorance. The US Civil War of the mid 19th century was no Civil War. A Civil War is one in which there is a struggle for control of the government and the rule of a country. During what should be referred to as the War for Southern Independence there was no attempt to overthrow the US government, rather to be left alone and live under a form of government differing from that of the north. What we are faced with, instead, is a potential for mass rebellion by the people, not by a region of states.
The likelihood of full scale rebellion in the US is low, lacking organized resistance or leadership. The triggers, as suggested in the report are the bankrupting of the US economy and the destruction of the US dollar - both of which are happening before our eyes without organized resistance. Barring some large scale government invasion of the private sector, such as would be needed for gun confiscation, it is more likely that the subjects of the US will wait out the problems until 2010 elections, or press their state governments for nullification of any unconstitutional law.
Full scale rebellion, though, unlikely...
