“It is not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog”. This axiom is soon going to be put to the test in the United States.

Dr. Jim Garrow is a name you are going to be seeing a lot of in the truthful media for the foreseeable future. Garrow is a former deep cover CIA agent who has his hand on the pulse of the crises which are befalling America. What separates Dr. Garrow from many high level sources who are disgusted with the status quo, is that he is on the record and is publicly visible.

While many of the 200+ command level officers fired by Obama are informing many of us in the media about the current state of affairs, they are not on the record. Other than self-preservation, the major reason why these former military commanders are not on the record is because some of them are involved in planning a guerrilla war against the occupation forces commanded by this administration under the auspices of DHS. And this is precisely what Dr. Garrow stated on my December 22, 2013 show which you can listen to here. He also went on to say that a coup attempt is probable and that a prolonged guerrilla civil war is likely. All of  my sources state that the coming civil war will be a guerrilla war.

Why the Coming Civil War Will Be a Guerrilla War

There are a total of 1,455,375 active personnel in the US military. The United States has over 200,000 troops stationed in 144 countries. These 200,000 men and women will not likely be a factor in the coming conflict and will prove to be in grave danger in the coming conflict.

I constantly have former military write to my website and proclaim their allegiance to the Constitution and pledge to destroy all enemies both foreign and domestic. I do not doubt their resolve or courage, however, there are not 30 million combat ready veterans who would be ready to fight as they frequently claim. There are only 1.8 million veterans who are under the age of 35, which would be the prime fighting age for any resistance force. This means that in the best case scenario, that any resistance that the occupation forces could muster would consist of about 2.5 million men who have combat training in both our active duty personnel and our veterans. The mere size of the army that the Chinese could muster, in addition to the DHS, the Russians and the Canadians, would dwarf any force that the American people could place on the battlefield. And if the confrontation came following a power grid take down, the odds would be worse.

The only choice that this country would have to resist the coming occupation and genocidal purge would be to make the war a guerrilla war.

The Sides Are Drawn

The coming civil war will consist of the present administration , the DHS, the Chinese, the Russians and the Canadians versus the American military and the American people.

Could a guerrilla war succeed? Is America equipped to fight a guerrilla war?

Four Types of Conflict

Military strategists identify four levels of conflict; (1) nuclear war is the trump card of all conflicts; 2) conventional warfare; (3) guerrilla warfare; and, (4) terrorism.

Terrorism is the least preferred option by any insurgent group. With terrorism, there is absolutely no hope of final victory because territory is never occupied. For that reason, nobody aspires to engage in terrorism if they have a viable alternative and the American people do have a choice given how well armed we are. However, terrorism arising out of a defeated guerrilla force is a distinct possibility as it would represent American guerrilla’s fallback position should they be defeated.

Please allow me to make one point perfectly clear, all of us, in these dire circumstances will be front line participants. Being a sheep will not ensure survival, it will only mean that you will die like a sheep. Most Americans will be targets of the occupation forces as the MIAC Report which labeled Libertarians, Constitutionalists, Second Amendment Supporters, Ron Paul Supporters, veterans and now Christians as domestic terrorists. Does it make a little more sense as to why DHS made these bold proclamations as to who is a  domestic terrorist?

DHS understands and has demonstrated their understanding of these facts and has also prepared for what I just wrote about in the previous paragraph.

Can a Guerrilla War Succeed?

Guerrilla warfare, for most of human history, is not new. Tribal war, which traditionally pits one guerrilla force against another, is the oldest form of warfare. The new “conventional” form of warfare, which pits guerrillas against “conventional” forces, is more recent as it arose in Mesopotamia 5,000 years ago.

The good news for future American freedom fighters is that guerrilla war has been getting more successful since 1945, but unfortunately guerrilla fighters still lose most of the time. An analysis of past conflicts featuring guerrilla war, reveals that only 25% of guerrilla forces, out of 443 such conflicts since 1775, were successful. The government prevailed almost 64% of the time with the remainder of the conflicts ended in a stalemate. Conversely, since the end of WWII, the percentage of success for guerrilla forces has indeed gone up to 39.6%. Yet that still means that government forces have continued to prevail 51% of the time.

When the American people engage in a guerrilla war in the upcoming years, the people have less than a 40% chance of success.

Guerrilla wars are rarely short and as a result do not favor the American culture and our collective psyche of instant gratification. When Americans flip the switch on the wall, we expect the light to come on. Will Americans set aside their entitlements as well as their entrenched soft lifestyle and rise to the occasion? Only time will tell.

Successful Guerrilla War

The Vietnamese culture with an external locus of control predominating the people in which the group is more important than the individual is the perfect mindset for guerrilla fighters. This could prove to be the American rebels biggest challenge because guerrilla warfare is not something that one does like driving over a speed bump. It is a way of life, a very hard way of life filled with misery, extreme sacrifice and unspeakable losses.

Successful guerrilla leaders such as Lawrence of Arabia, Mao, Castro and Giap all concur that there are three phases of any guerrilla war. However, before the phases can unfold there are two preconditions which must be met.

The first condition which is a prerequisite for guerrilla war, is based upon the fact that there has to be a decisive battle for the belief systems of the people as a whole. The globalists have invested billions of dollars in order to dominate the mainstream media. On the other side is the alternative media. Both sides are vying for control of the belief systems of the country.

There are two very distinct ideologies playing out today in the court of public opinion. On one hand, the future rebels are adept at exposing the loss of national sovereignty and civil liberties every chance they get. Conversely, the globalist dominated media is spending billions of dollars to convince the masses that there is no such thing as a conspiracy theory and despite some governmental incompetence, the government loves and protects its people. And the globalists are being somewhat effective. Have you ever noticed that when you are describing a globalist inspired conspiracy such as what happened at Benghazi, and no matter how well documented your position is, that your audience frequently responds with “you must be one of these conspiracy theorists.” Our facts are rarely attacked because they are accurate, but the idea of the existence of any kind of conspiracy is what is challenged. This kind of programming coming from the media is brilliant and effective. Who is winning this war of words? The jury is still out, but the unmistakable conclusion is that the ideological battle lines for the upcoming conflict have clearly been drawn.

The globalists sell the sheep on the notion that we have to control you to protect you (from a threat of our creation), and the other side is saying, “we will take our chances, give us freedom.”

The second precondition which must be met prior to descending into guerrilla war consists of both sides engaging in an arms race. In response to the Obama administration’s threat of seizing our guns for the false flag events of the Aurora Batman massacre and Sandy Hook, Americans went on a gun-buying frenzy which continues to this day. DHS has engaged i,n their own arms buildup as they have purchased 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition to go with 2700 new armored personnel carriers and that is not all. The federal government has invested in 30,000 drones, super soldier robots and intelligence gathering techniques which are mind-blowing.

The architect of the Viet Cong Resistance, Vo Nguyen Giap, once said that the war against the French, and later against the Americans was a “People’s War”. The center of gravity is always the people. This isn’t only the center of gravity of the enemy but also the center of gravity of one’s own forces. The “hearts and minds” of the people decide the victor in any “People’s War”.

Vo Nugyen Giap

Giap further proclaimed that, “The war of liberation of the Vietnamese people proves that, in the face of an enemy as powerful as he is cruel, victory is possible only by uniting the whole people within the bosom of a firm and wide national united front based on the worker-peasant alliance.”(The Military Art of People’s War, p. 97-98).

 

“Using fear is the key to motivating the people to fight”.                             General Giap

 

Giap tells us that fear of the oppressor is a strong ally. Tell your neighbors about DHS and their 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition and their 2700 armored personnel carriers. Speak about the Civilian Inmate Labor Program. Let people know they can be snatched off the street without due process under the NDAA. Talk to your friends about the detention camps and the Wackenhut buses that will take you there along with the trains containing shackles. Ask your neighbors how we can pay off $238 trillion dollars in unfunded mandates?  Make your friends see that a currency collapse is imminent.

It is time to scare the excrement out our fellow countrymen because these threats are real and they are life-threatening for the majority. Fact-based fear and repetition of the message are our best friends in terms of driving the public to our side. Subsequently, when Phase Two of the guerrilla war commences, we have the support of the people. However, don’t waste time on the hard core sheep among us. We do not need a majority to wage a successful guerrilla war.

Giap and his colleagues were brilliant at couching their words in such a way as to demonize his enemies, thus drawing closer support from the people. Notice his use of the term “The People’s War.” The “people” already resent the elite because they know that they are not and never will be part of the elite.

Average people understand that the golden rule is based upon those who have the gold, get to make the rules. Giap was a master at turning envy into resentment and then into hatred. People emote before they act. Consequently, we in the alternative media need to continue to appeal to the emotions of the people.

Remember, the use of the term “people” builds a sense of collective identity that is needed in every successful revolution. Therefore, fellow patriots, every word coming out of your mouth must speak of these problems in the collective. It is us vs. them, not black vs. white, gay vs. straight, citizen vs. illegal. The latter conflicts are the creation of the globalists to distract us while they continue to enslave us. This is class warfare and you need to pound the message into people’s head that the leaders of the major corporations pay no tax and you work until June of each year paying off your debt to this criminal government.

If you are talking to your friends about baseball, the weather and your child’s report card, do not fail to drop in a zinger about the globalists.   

Winning the Minds of the People 

The late Colonel David Hackworth, a highly decorated Vietnam war veteran, once told PBS that he knew very early on, that if the US was going to win the Vietnam War, they had to win the people. The French made the mistake of ignoring the people and the Americans committed the same mistake. The Viet Minh and later the Viet Cong won the hearts and the minds of the people and thus, won each guerrilla conflict.

Hackworth related the following metaphor in his PBS interview, “The guerrilla is the fish and the people are the water. If you want to kill the fish, you remove the water. If you want to kill the guerrilla, you remove the people, because they find all kinds of assistance, medical help, they put out the booby-traps, they provide the intelligence and they provide the trail-watchers. They are the sea in which the guerrilla swims.”

Defeating a Superior Force?

Most people wrongly assume that American civil war will fail because the other side will have the most devastating weapons and greater numbers of military personnel. However, this fact did not prove to be the decisive factor in Vietnam. The third factor necessary to successfully engaging in a civil war will consist of the resolve of the rebel force.

Over two centuries ago, Chinese military strategist, Sun Tzu, spoke about the importance of placing an inferior military force on “death’s ground”.  The term, death’s ground, simply means that surrender is not an option as it equates to sure death. If an insurgent group feels that it has no choice but to win or die, they will become a formidable fighting force regardless of the discrepancies in military prowess. Therefore, it is incumbent for all of us to keep pointing out how the other side is already preparing for genocide through the use of catastrophic false flag events, mass roundups and indiscriminate executions. The motto of any rebel force must be that for every ten the enemy sends to our shores, we must endeavor to send nine home in a body bag for in the end, any insurgent group will achieve final victory through attrition. The civil war must become too expensive for the oppressing force to absorb.

How Long Would a Successful Civil War Last?

There is not a hard and fast answer to the question as to how long would the American people would have to resist until the opposition makes a risk-reward decision to discontinue the oppression. The Russians, the DHS and the Canadians could be worn down in a few years. The Russians demonstrated their culture’s lack of resolve in Afghanistan. The Canadians are almost as soft as the American people are today. The DHS will emotionally crumble in a few years. However, any formidable military force from an Asian culture will likely have staying power.

The French dominated Vietnam for ages. However, when the Vietnamese people were invaded by the brutal forces of Japan in 1941, the people were placed on death’s ground. When Japan was defeated in 1945, the French returned to claim their former colony. However, Giap and the Viet Minh, the predecessor to the Viet Cong, refused to capitulate and the Giap forces defeated the French in the Battle of Dien Bien Phu in 1954. Are you keeping score, to this point? The Vietnamese people had been fighting nonstop for 13 years.

After the defeat of the French, French Indochina was partitioned by the UN into North and South Vietnam and it was done in such a way to guarantee the continuance of the hostilities and a civil war between North and South ensued. Eventually, the United States sent ground troops to Vietnam in 1964. The war continued until 1975. Yes, that is correct, in order to achieve final independence, the Vietnamese people endured 34 years of war. The Vietnamese used to have a saying, “Born in the North, to die in the South”.

The Chinese and the North Koreans will have the same resolve. However, the military planners in this country have plans for dealing with the Chinese very early on in this coming conflict based upon this principle and this will be revealed in the next part of this series.

America Will Fight

You say that you do not have the stomach for such a conflict? It is too late! War has already been declared on you when this administration passed the NDAA which gave Obama the authority to snatch Americans off of the street without due process for indefinite detention or worse. War has already been declared on you when Obama enacted Executive Order 13603 which allows the government to conscript its citizens in work brigades irrespective of health and age. War has already been declared on you when DHS reached agreements with the major league sports franchises and the malls to allow their facilities to be used as detention camps. War was declared upon the American people when an illegal alien, who was bred by communists, to bring totalitarianism to America was allowed to occupy the White House.

Personally, I do not wish for this scenario to unfold. Therefore, how can I be sure America will rise to the occasion and fight? When Americans witness their friends, family and neighbors being eliminated with extreme prejudice, Americans will come to realize that we have been placed on death’s ground and we will have no choice but to fight to the death.

When Will the Civil War Commence?

The script for civil war is actually very easy to predict. First, there will be a series of false flag attacks which will give the administration the authority to declare martial law. This will be followed by the “inviting” of Russians, Chinese and Canadians to help administer the martial law in the name of protecting America from domestic terrorists (Constitutionalists, Libertarians, Bible believing Christians, pro Second Amendment supporters, etc.).

Gun confiscations will soon commence under these conditions. Artificially contrived food and water shortages will be used to subjugate the people and lure the population into various detention centers. The price for possessing a weapon or possessing more than three days of food and water will be immediate termination. Dissident opposition, such as members of the alternative media and all others opposed  to the new regime will be executed by the martial law forces based upon the threat matrix scores being compiled by the NSA surveillance spy grid. How many times have you been to this website, or websites like this? It does not take much to make you an enemy of the state.

The next part of this series will look at the course of events which will likely occur after this administration “burns down its own metaphorical Reichstag”. Also, the ancillary figures which will factor into the coming of the Second American Civil War will be examined.
