Former CIA Counter-Terrorism Official Agrees With Washington Examiner: Yes, We Need to Declare Literal War on Half the Country aka "The Insurgents"

I'm so glad we rid ourselves of the "authoritarian" Trump, so we could usher in a "non-authoritarian" government which is salivating at the prospect of murdering American citizens.

When it comes to domestic extremists such as those who stormed the Capitol, a longtime CIA officer argues that the U.S. should treat them as an insurgency.

That means using counterinsurgency tactics -- similar in some ways to those used in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Robert Grenier served as the CIA's station chief for Pakistan and Afghanistan in 2001. He went on to become the CIA's Iraq mission manager and then director of the CIA Counterterrorism Center from 2004 to 2006.

"We may be witnessing the dawn of a sustained wave of violent insurgency within our own country, perpetrated by our own countrymen," Grenier wrote in The New York Times last week. And without national action, he argues, "extremists who seek a social apocalypse ... are capable of producing endemic political violence of a sort not seen in this country since Reconstruction."

You will not be surprised to hear that he does not mention antifa or BLM or the "Summer of Love" -- and the summer of arson, looting, and murder -- we just experienced.

Violence Privilege is the one true real privilege.

I'm glad there is technology and means to find, arrest, and charge rioters. So weird that the technology and prosecution doesn't work on rioters who spent the better part of a year razing cities, attacking federal courthouses, burning down churches, police HQ. Wonder why that is.

The neoliberal war machine -- backed by its Junior Partners, the neocon liberals who hijacked the conservative movement -- is tired of travelling for its Forever Wars, and so has decided to make its next match a home game.

And don't worry: there will be no restrictions on the Rules of Engagement for this one. They mean to kill these True Enemies, not win hearts and minds.
