From Michael Yon's despatch:
"Veterans .. view this news cycle through a different glass. After things truly began to spin out of control in (Iraq), many people were fighting for vastly different reasons. The situation was difficult to track even for dedicated analysts. .. The always-there lunatic fringe is uncorked. .. The actions of a serial killer look like the work of an insurgent or group. Criminality skyrockets, and what would earlier have been seen as just a bank robbery looks like part of a movement. ... They will simultaneously fight the government while fighting each other. They inevitably have internal disputes. Wars allow criminals and the insane to fulfill their vast potential. Young men with guns, no rules, and a sense of divine authority, are the most dangerous animals on earth.
In the U.S., this could translate into the normal unleashing of the insane, of the criminal elements, and people who are merely fighting “the man,” ethnic divides of many sorts — white and black is only a subset — religious, and other motivations ranging from environmental terrorism, anti-globalism, save the dolphins, save the whales, pro-life, anti-Semitism, and endless sorts of backwater motivations that become wrapped in violence. ... All this white noise is perfect breeding ground for militant Islam, and anti-Islamic violence also no doubt would raise its head. If violence increases to high levels, National Guard will not save the cities. They will be pop up targets. The BLM movement has its own agenda and, though not baseless, is itself on the verge of terrorism. Meanwhile, a completely different sort of people see the FBI as a puppet for the Clintons and other “elites” who are not just above the law, they are the law.
The biggest problem at hand is straightforward: millions of Americans see injustice, and disrespect for the population, coming from the government. Different sorts of people arrive at this conclusion from different roads. BLM comes at it from a racist agenda while others are tired of seeing the .1% sailing above the laws that are made for the 99.9%."Read the full article and browse his sites.
