Small groups of insurgent paranoid wingnuts could not be put down in Iraq or Afghanistan, or Somalia by our military.
The same can become true of US insurgent paranoid wingnuts, like teabaggers, truthers or whatever. So do not give them access to weapons. The world would be a safer place with less weapons.
It’s undeniable that less weapons means a safer world, and that’s fine in small doses - but that’s not what I was getting at.
The US is not anywhere near the need for guerrilla war against the government - nor would most Americans have the appetite for that, IMO. But, maybe things like that are necessary sometimes, and they can work sometimes.
