So I saw this film the other day and I thought it was an interesting enough(though pretty ASB) premise about the start of a second civil war To recap to the important points: 1.) A group of states led by Texas has decided to break away from the US. This group is called the New American Coalition. In addition to Texas it includes Louisiana, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Georgia as well as parts of Pennsylvania and Maryland. Given that one of the Coalition soldiers is from Kentucky we can probably count that as well. 2.) To accomplish this they’ve sent a large helicopter-borne private army/militia to New York and presumably other major cities to take them hostage and force Congress to ratify their secession. The militia seems to be composed largely of infantry though they do have some light vehicles like humvees. 3.) This plan quickly falls apart as the locals prove to be much better armed and resilient then anticipated. Brooklyn in particular is turned in a huge battlefield within a day of the operation starting. 4.) By the end of the day, the US military proper has been deployed to evacuate non-combatants from the effected areas. So that’s the info the film provides about the situation. Do you guys have any thoughts on how the situation might develop?
