A serious thought came to mind while watching this mindless, staged protest. What would happen if a civil war did break out in this country. Could our Law Enforcement and Military contain it? We have two armies in this nation: our regular army which pledges allegiance to our Constitution, and a second army, run by the military-industrial complex which is owned and controlled by the neocons and only has allegiance to making money. Who's side would this second army, created and controlled by the MIC, fight on? We don't know! The neocons are attempting a soft coup, so I think that it is obvious which side they would take, if a civil war should ever happen. We have downsized our regular military while we have increased the size of the MIC. We do not need to have tens of thousands of Troops overseas to protect other countries from non existing threats. We need them here before anything begins. My point is simple, if a civil war breaks out, can the Government control it and at what cost? Can NATO assist? Only limited, if at all, because they would face the same dilemma. Would Russia benefit from the destruction of America- NO, and they know that. They do not want the destabilization of America with an unpredictable future. My guess is that we would have to reach out, and Russia would help. Some think that it can't happen, but look back at the Russian Revolution, the French Revolution, WW1, WW2. Nobody at the time thought that it could happen. Connect the dots. We need strong allies, and Russia and China would be the place to start.
