The Coming Civil War Of 2016

Imagine Tea Party extremists seizing control of a South Carolina town and the Army being sent in to crush the rebellion. This farcical vision is now part of the discussion in professional military circles.

Obama’s official CIA code name is Renegade…the lawless one. And his limo is called the Beast. Any questions?

At issue is an article in the respected Small Wars Journal titled “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A ‘Vision’ of the Future.” It was written by retired Army Col. Kevin Benson of the Army’s University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and Jennifer Weber, a Civil War expert at the University of Kansas. It posits an “extremist militia motivated by the goals of the ‘tea party’ movement” seizing control of Darlington, S.C., in 2016, “occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council and placing the mayor under house arrest.” The rebels set up checkpoints on Interstate 95 and Interstate 20 looking for illegal aliens. It’s a cartoonish and needlessly provocative scenario.

The article is a choppy patchwork of doctrinal jargon and liberal nightmare. The authors make a quasi-legal case for military action and then apply the Army’s Operating Concept 2016-2028 to the situation. They write bloodlessly that “once it is put into play, Americans will expect the military to execute without pause and as professionally as if it were acting overseas.” They claim that “the Army cannot disappoint the American people, especially in such a moment,” not pausing to consider that using such efficient, deadly force against U.S. citizens would create a monumental political backlash and severely erode government legitimacy.

The vision is hard to take seriously. As retired ArmyBrig. Gen. Russell D. Howard, a former professor at West Point, observed earlier in his career, “I am a colonel, colonels write a lot of crazy stuff, but no one listens to colonels, so I don’t see the problem.” Twenty years ago, then-Air Force Lt. Col. Charles J. Dunlap Jr. created a stir with an article in Parameters titled “The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012.” It carried a disclaimer that the coup scenario was “purely a literary device intended to dramatize my concern over certain contemporary developments affecting the armed forces, and is emphatically not a prediction.”

The scenario presented in Small Wars Journal isn’t a literary device but an operational lay-down intended to present the rationale and mechanisms for Americans to fight Americans. Col. Benson and Ms. Weber contend, “Army officers are professionally obligated to consider the conduct of operations on U.S. soil.” This is a dark, pessimistic and wrongheaded view of what military leaders should spend their time studying.

A professor at the Joint Forces Staff College was relieved of duty in June for uttering the heresy that the United States is at war with Islam. The Obama administration contended the professor had to be relieved because what he was teaching was not U.S. policy. Because there is no disclaimer attached to the Small Wars piece, it is fair to ask, at least in Col. Benson’s case, whether his views reflect official policy regarding the use of U.S. military force against American citizens. source – The Washington Times

  • So,you think it will take that long for America to wake up and stand up for her freedoms? Seeing America no longer Honors God and His Word,not doing away with debts after 7 yrs ,(*sp Shmitah)no public prayer,can’t mention Jesus,can’t post the 10 commandments anywhere ,murdering unborn babies in the womb which are God’s hertiage Psalm127:3 & Life is in the Blood Lev.17:11..2015 will be worse then ’08.Our nation cannot stand without God.She has fallen.God is the Only answer thru Christ Jesus.God will allow the total collapse of the entire World,not just America…Beware

  • I believe there are no, at least very few, real (as in Bible believing) Christians in powerful governmental positions in our country these days. Mostly they claim to be whatever is popular and/or will get them elected.
    If ‘it takes one to know one’ then I honestly believe our top leader is NOT a Christian. I don’t know what he is but I know what he is NOT. I am a Christian- a Bible believing Christian- and that is how I know what he is not.
    We were warned two thousand years ago about imposters. Why is anyone now surprised that prophecy comes to fruition right before our eyes? Have the Christians in The USA been so arrogant that we didn’t believe WE would ever suffer persecution? What were we doing all the while as our nation turned into a sewer and while Christians on the other side of the planet were being slaughtered for being Christian? Perhaps we were busy enjoying our abundance while wrapping ourselves in red, white and blue-thinking that would protect us? Does God really care what country we live in?…will He say, “Oh he’s an American! That’ll save him from what’s coming!”…?
    We’re the last of any free people on the planet; the last of what stands in the way of the anti-christ taking over the entire planet and many of us still cannot see what is taking place. Many have chosen the PC path over God’s laws.
    Presently the enemy is setting all his ducks up in a row. He will practice war by killing Christians-getting us out of the way- for his ultimate goal of defeting our TRUE king, Jesus Christ.
    It is hard to believe that such ‘educated’ people actually think they can war with God and win.

    • They don’t think they can war with God. You have to believe in God first. Look at Europe, and how it has essentially turned from God and embraced atheism. Science is a tool for disproving God through conclusions and philosophy of secularism.

      Religion is seen as something weak people who fear death believe in, another Santa Claus for large children. It’s only a matter of time, a short time if you’ve payed attention to the younger generations today, until the god of self reliance has replaced the God of the Bible in this country as well. Religion is in decline in this country, and has declined in Europe. This has given Islam openings into countries it normally wouldn’t be able to do well in, where it’s aggressive strategy for expansion is now working.

      It seems to me, we’re facing a soon to come time where either the Bible will prove itself the truth through prophecies we’ve uttered for generations as “the last days”, or we’ll see Christianity become a small whisper in a world that brushed it off its feet for good or ill. And, if there’s no truth in it, that’s how it should be, as no generation should grow up with faith in something that will only let them down because it’s not real. But, if our God is living, it sure does seem like the end game is in sight.

      Then again, how many generations have said the same thing?

      • Well, Jesus never spoke a lie. Ever. And He spoke of these days clear as a bell. No question. It’s real. And it’s coming.

  • Maybe 2016 is the military’s ETA of The Great American Meltdown. They vastly underestimate “we the people”‘s ingenuity, cantankerousness, resourcefulness and backbone. We haven’t forgotten what this country’s made of.

  • Don’t believe I’ll be around to see it!!! More like they will be rounding up tribulation saints among others…

  • The same people that seated a foreigner and Muslim Brotherhood thug as President of the U.S. are now sponsoring a globalist, Luciferian as President. Romney will simply finish what Obama started which is handing the U.S. over to the U.N. and global governance. Obama already authorized U.N. troops to invade the U.S. in case of an emergency. I suspect that Romney will ensure that such an emergency occurs.

    • I too was troubled to see Romney secure the nomination. I don’t know much about him being a globalist or Luciferian, but his Mormon faith teaches that Jesus and satan are brothers. Nothing could be further from the truth. Obama-Romney. Six of one, half a dozen of the other. As stated above, those of us who belong to the body of Christ won’t be around. We’ll be raptured out. Then all hell will break loose.

  • I wonder what kind of situation is being invented right now to usher in the use of our military as law enforcement…and I wonder what ‘they’ are tricking us into paying more attention to so that ‘they’ can bring this about right under our noses. The attempts to disarm the America People have failed, apparently, so now they will just use the military against us. Watch! Prophecy is coming to fruition almost faster than we can keep up with it. Chistians have been a big hurdle in the path to total control of the planet. I have no doubt that we will be the next target. After that, controlling the rest will seem a lot easier because those remaining will still not be aware of the truth. Watch!

    • About Christians being the next target, haven’t we always? It’s comforting to know we are “in Christ”, that is, “in — locative of sphere”. As yolk in an egg, surrounded and protected all around. To know this is to stay calm, no matter what.

    • Googled UN troops authorized in USA, and found it’s been in place since Clinton and papa Bush era. Congress passed a bill to allow US troops to act with UN troops to quell hot spots, a global police action, without having to declare war. It’s supposed to be just an in-out op. Here’s the thing, it could be used on American soil as well if deemed necessary. Yikes.

  • Both Romney and Obama’s biggest donor is Goldman Sachs. They both work for the same people. Paul Ryan voted in favor of TARP, NDAA, SOPA, and warrantless wiretapping. Romney and Ryan will simply finish what Obama started in ceding U.S. sovereignty to the U.N…which is owned by Goldman Sachs.
