    This thread......
    America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

    Just me being critical, it happens every time there's a blue moon.

    About as often as an American civil war happens. And it's not like the likelihood of it happening again and the outcome can be summarized in a sentence or two.

    I thought about 're-writing' for better grammar and to let the somewhat hidden joke be revealed - I'm critical more often then there's a blue moon.

    Seriously, we have been intentionally divided on so many fronts that a united civil war (if that makes any sense?) is practically impossible.

    As I 'tried' to lay my head down to rest (which is a heavy burden lol) I put watching the OP's video on my 'to do list'. It's ~1 hour and has gotta be interesting.

    I don't believe there will ever be a second Civil War. A large percentage of the American people won't even go to the voting booths....not likely they'll participate in an all out shooting war.

    Who would win?

    Well, the immediate "Winners" would be Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea.

    --The absence of the United States, on a world stage, would create a power vacuum on the world stage. China and Russia would rush to fill it, while Iran and North Korea would take advantage of it, to continue with their aggressive policies.

    An American "Civil War," could, in fact, trigger other wars, all over the globe: North Korea invading South Korea, Iran invading large swaths of the Middle East, Russia taking back the Baltic Sates.....

    The eventual victor of the actual Civil War is really hard to predict, for several reasons:

    #1. There won't be JUST "Two" sides. Typically, there aren't in Civil Wars.
    #2. Almost everything depends on where the Military falls. By most predictions, the majority of military personnel, Officers, in particular, would likely side with more Conservative elements. VETERANS, older, without the immediate gear, but still with training (and, often, experience...), are even more likely to side with the right. Whatever the case, I think the BEST case scenario for the Left, would be that the military splits pretty evenly.
    #3. The Leftists will have most of the cities, and, thus, the ports, and much of the production. HOWEVER. This is not the 1800's. Rural America has far more factories and other production facilities than the Confederacy ever dreamed of.
    #4. Because of the chaotic nature of such a conflict, TERRORISM will become a common tactic used by elements on BOTH sides.
    #5. The Conservatives will have most of the actual "real estate." This includes mines, energy plants, dams, and FOOD!. It also includes the vast majority of the ROADS (Basically, the "Reds" could virtually cut off ALL transportation between the various Big Blue Cities.) By the same token, there is a lot of territory to find cover, and, strong, defensive positions.
    #6. Strategically, the Blues (Leftists) would be under far more pressure to go on the offensive against those in fly over country. (For the roads, dams, energy plants, FOOD, etc.) The Reds (Conservatives, could just take defensive positions, and wait.....)
    #7. Foreign interference. This would occur very quickly. From European powers in particular. AND, this could be the one factor to decide victory for the Left. But....it would come at such a cost. The question is: Would Europeans be willing to squander possibly a hundred thousand lives, in order to conquer America????
    #8. The Nukes. WHO gets the Nukes. In such a situation, ONE NUKE, grants immense power. IF, say, the Reds had access to a single ICBM, along with the codes (This, of course, would require that several "higher ups" joined the Reds....)....they could likely keep any foreign powers from OPENLY engaging any combatants in the Civil War. Nukes take the stakes WAY up, forcing the players in to a game of "Nuclear Chicken...."
    #9. Such a conflict could potentially last a LONG time. Far longer than the first American Civil War. It could go on for a decade, or so.....
    #10. Afterward, Humanity would enter a new Dark Age. One, our species may never come out of.....


    Now, this is IF it all went to a straight out shooting war.

    And, that would likely start only after several "Flash Points," everything from terror attacks, to situations like WACO and Ruby Ridge, along with a lot of street battles/riots......
