Remembering back to Desert Storm and coming all the way up to the current day, we’ve basically been at war the whole time. People born in the late 80’s and 90’s have not known what it’s like to not be at war. It didn’t seem like war because it was just that way every day. It was normal.
The difference was we were at war with enemies overseas.
Now, we are at war within the United States and our enemies are here. Many of them live here and some likely hold powerful positions within the country.
People have been asking “why can’t we come together against the enemy like we did after 9/11?”
That answer is fairly simple.
9/11 was a foreign enemy, setting all 'conspiracy' theories aside. Regardless of the theory, that's all we knew at the time.
Currently, our enemy is living in a city down the map from you. The enemy looks like us and talks like us and lives like us. They're sponsored by major corporations like Nike, the NFL, NBA, and even have support from top level politicians.
One might say, "but we have all of this intelligence and spying capability - how can they not stop this?"
Therein lies another problem. It's likely, if you've been paying attention for the last 4 years, that we have enemies in powerful positions with powerful tools at their disposal. Some of these enemies likely spent a lifetime in the Intelligence Agencies.
Getting greedy people to give up control of their power will never be an easy thing to do. America also has laws. While some have abused these laws, we can't just send in the military any time there is a problem.
And, let's face it, the military cannot keep the United States together. The people have to want to keep this great nation and right now there is a divide. While the violence and destruction is being caused by a minority of folks, it's loud and gets coverage. Most Americans want it to stop, regardless of what political party they belong to.
The violent thugs are in the minority but they're getting enough media attention to make it seem like they're the majority.
Look outside. If you're not in a large Democrat run city, odds are that you're not seeing any signs of civil unrest.
That's the majority of America.
All I really need to do is look at the pace of new gun purchases. Something tells me Americans aren't ready to give up this great nation. If this virus (the terrorism) spreads outside of these protected Democrat zones I don't think it will bode well for the bad guys.
Americans need to stand ready to protect their homes, their families, their values, and their country. America has been tested before and it is being tested gain. However, just like before, America will pass this test and become stronger.
