[] – Thomas Friedman, The American Civil War, Part II
I began my journalism career covering a civil war in Lebanon. I never thought I’d end my career covering a civil war in America. We may not be there yet, but if we don’t turn around now, we will surely get where we’re going — which was best described by Senator Jeff Flake on Monday: “Tribalism is ruining us. It is tearing our country apart. It is no way for sane adults to act.”

*** UPDATE March 8, 2020 ***

We started this thread in November 2018, when it began to dawn upon us that a civil war in the US a real, albeit still remote possibility.

Update June 2020. A lot has changed since our last update, March 8 2020; keywords Corona and George Floyd. BLM uprisings, most of all in the US and UK. Historically attacking statues of the opponents is a precursor to war. All the signs are that the US are on the verge of a racial-bolshevik revolution. The Dems and Reps have developed in real war parties and no reconciliation seems possible anymore. The only way out of a fracturing of the country, a la the USSR-1991, that fell apart in 15 pieces.

[] – 40% of GOP Voters Think Civil War Likely

[] – Metropolitan police chased out of the capital by BLM/Antifa thugs

Nation-wide toppling of statues of founding fathers means eventually the toppling of the old United States and its constitution. Here in Raleigh, situated on the wrong (dark) side of the Appalachians and as such expendable.

Statue of Confederate general Albert Pike toppled in Washington DC

Seattle, “autonomous zone Chaz”. Beginning of the fracturing of the United States, setting a nice pretext for US white nationalists to follow.

Our hunch of how the US will be fractured: largely along ethnic lines: SW, will be reabsorbed by Mexico, restoring early 19th century borders. Independent SE, with capital Atlanta; basically everything East of the Mississippi River and Appalachians. Independent Heartland, between Rockies and Mississippi River, Appalachians and North of River Red in Texas. A New Israel in New York City and Upstate New York. Furthermore some fractured states in the Rust Belt. New England will probably sooner or later be reabsorbed by Old England. The US will disappear from history, much to the delight of Eurasia. The East and West coasts will become the new fly-over countries and the Heartland will become a junior partner of the EU, with a post-Breton Woods, post-dollar-reserve currency of ca. $30k/capita.

*** UPDATE JULY 2020 ***

We’re more than 2 years into this thread, as well as a pandemic, the Floyd George catalyst point and the BLM movement of proletarian shoppers and statue topplers. According to some, it is merely a matter of a few months now until “the bear will go lose” (Dutch proverb) or the boogaloo (CW2). The November elections won’t help pacifying things either.

No statue is safe anymore in Anglosphere

Our prediction of how North-America will look like after the “boogaloo”: a white ethno-state, coinciding with the Mississippi River basin. A black-nationalist state in the South-East, with capital Atlanta and everything West returns to Mexico. Alaska becomes a Russian protectorate. The difference with similar social developments in Russia in 1917 is that this time around massive, decisive foreign intervention is to be expected in the boogaloo, when the US empire will go the way of the dodo, probably overnight, comparable to 1989. The Trump years can be seen as the US variety of Glasnost in the USSR.

Armed black-nationalists appear on the streets

China is clearly anticipating something and no longer shows any respect for either the US nor UK:

[] – Chinese state media says double US aircraft carrier deployment to the South China Sea is ‘at their pleasure’ and they could destroy them at any moment with missiles in chilling threat

[] – Hong Kong: Chinese ambassador warns UK over ‘interference’

China apparently feels strong enough and effectively has unilaterally cancelled the 50-year agreement with the UK about the status of Hong Kong. The embarrassing anarchic developments in both the US and UK are no doubt an important reason for this behavior.
