I have an extensive and well-thumbed library of militaria, including guerrilla and unconventional warfare. So do many of you. But always remember some timeless concepts, as the chances for a quiet and orderly society are evaporating by the day.
C-A-R-V-E-R. Google it. Learn it, live it, love it.
You can't get ballistics off of buckshot. You're also going to have a tough time getting fingerprints off of expended molotovs.
IEDs can be made out of anything. The VC used to put a bullet in a piece of bamboo over a nail in a board, and it worked just fine. Hollywood explosions are a modicum of black powder substitute in a baggie with an ignition source, sitting under a gallon of unleaded in a trashbag.
Indians used to cut telegraph lines, then ambush the wire repair party. Some ideas never get old. Except now we also have water mains, fiber optic cables, cable TV, cell repeaters, etc., ad infinitum.
If a few cubic yards of concrete accidentally get poured into an underground vault, you ain't repairing that for some time.
The same is true if you weld manhole covers and service plates to their rings.
If you shoot the boss, they can replace him in 15 minutes. If you hit the truck with the tools and supplies, that takes days to weeks to replace. But if you take out the guys who fix the stuff, they take months to years to replace. And the other ones don't want to show up for work either, afterwards.
BLM and Antifa already have a rep for burning things, and trying to derail trains. They should get 100% credit for anything like that going forward, forever.
If someone shoots a guy driving a truck, there's a body. But if someone drops a letter off with pictures of his kids at school, and he decides maybe he ought to call in sick, there's no body, and little to follow up on. (One might even have the envelope delivered at a truck stop, and suggest he uncouple, and return home without his load.) Same result.
A train track missing a rail on the outside of a medium curve will usually derail a train. (With modern rails, you have to bridge the contact between the section with wire or something, which BLM has figured out, per recent news reports.)
If that derailment happens to interfere with a major industrial plant, arterial roadway, etc., that's a two-fer.
This is the same reason military manuals recommend dropping tall objects (trees, towers, smokestacks) over roadways, bridges, and power transmission lines. Half the effort, twice the result.
Magnesium burns at 3100°. Thermite (which is equal parts rust dust and aluminum powder or flakes) burns at 4000°. Liquid and natural gas pipelines, cell towers, and telephone block boxes are rather fragile.
ATMs are nowhere near as robustly protected as banks.
You should have maps of solid blue areas, and the downtown hubs, which would essentially become free-fire areas in sporty times. No sense inconveniencing your own people or their neighborhoods if a precision attack would do a much better job.
If a HVT has a back-up generator, they probably don't have two generator back-ups.
Find single points of failure, and exploit them.
Backgammon depends on luck. Chess is for planners.
Going head-to-head against armored vehicles is bad.
Getting the guys inside when they come out to take a piss is much easier.
At modern ordnance counts, it would take hundreds of attacks to cripple a battalion. The same thing can be accomplished with bad food and bad water, and a few hundred cases of the trots.
Armies march on their stomachs. Logistics caravans are always more lightly defended than they ought to be.
Even Samson was defeated by first being weakened, blinded, and hobbled.
Achilles' strength, too, was legend, but the moral is the same: find Achilles' heel.
If you're asking questions of prisoners, remember the immortal words of Dennis Miller:
"Red is positive. Black is negative."
Also remember, it's not technically "waterboarding" if you use diesel.
It takes one bad election to make an insurgent; it takes 10+ years to make another communist. When in doubt, always remember, every dead communist is one less communist. Don't be squeamish or sentimental.
These are by no means comprehensive nor exhaustive in nature; merely a few thoughts to keep me warm inside on a cold night.
I mention all this not to unleash havoc, but because evidently one side has clearly forgotten what a high-trust society this is, and thus has absolutely no f***ing idea what happens when you use any means available to undermine the most basic trust in the electoral system, and everything else disappears almost instantly as a consequence.
Read up on what happened in places like Beirut, Sarajevo, and Caracas.
Or just wait awhile, and see it firsthand.
