    The first concentration camp opened in 1936. Think FEMA?

    Probably not.
    The doom and gloomers will just assume the media covered the rebellion up.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    No, they really didn't. By all accounts, Germany was a pretty miserable place to live during the rise of the Third Reich, thanks to the pretty horrible terms of the Treaty of Versailles. Which is why the Third Reich rose to power in the first place. And it was no great shakes after the rise of the Third Reich either.

    But congratulations on going Godwin.

    After almoust 200 years of civil war in Germany (between the small states) the conclusion learned was that every political leadership in the future should always avoid such divisions to take place.

    After the Austrian civil war in 1923 and the birth of the second republic after WW2 in 1954 the two main political parties created a "contract of friendship" in which they swore to never call for violence against the other again. Which now is a kind of "code of honor" in the republic followed by every party.

    I guess the disapointment in the North after victory and the resentment in the South towards the North because of the brutality with which the North pilleged and occupied the South, prevented any reconsiliation.

    Or am I wrong with seing this that way?

    That being said, I think it highly unlikely that civil war will break out in the US again.

    There certainly remains a bit of animosity there over north and south, but that's basically over. Americans are too divided for there to be a civil war here thats anything resembling our other. But civil unrest and popular uprising over the increasing attacks on civil liberties is somewhat of a potential problem.

    I have not paid much attention to news in general, let along military-specific news.

    It is hardly surprising that the military numbers are being cut, considering the reduction in active conflicts (Bush had terrorism and the 2nd war in Iraq, Obama is winding down the same war and messing around in small stuff he probably has no business messing in.)

    And, hell, maybe those officers deserved to be relieved, I have no idea.

    Why would any of this mean a damn military rebellion, I have NO idea.

    If you buy into sensationalist nonsense, sure.

    I think the nation is long overdue for some sort of civil war, revolution, or other armed uprising, but I do not expect to see it happen.

    We've allowed our government to go too far amok, to the point where I do not think that anything short of a large-scale, organized, armed uprising will ever bring it back in line; but we've grown too cowardly, complacent, and ignorant to do what needs to be done.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    We are already having a civil war. Haven't you been hearing the mean things that is being said on TV? Haven't you read all the mean blogs out there? People aren't holding back. They are attacking their opponents with vengence. There is no telling what bad things they will say about each other next.

    It's rough right now. How can you deny this brutal civil war that has been raging for so long?

    Btw. I voted no.
