The Sword of Damocles

.
When is an army the most dangerous? Some might argue an army is the most dangerous when the tide of battle turns in their favor, and they sense victory just ahead. That would not be an unlikely scenario, but there is another time even more critical: when an army is out maneuvered, and begins an extended retreat, continuing long after the surrender. The pain of defeat can be more severe then the agony of war!

Will the empire play into Confederate hands?
.
Resentment can fester just below the surface for years or decades even centuries and passed on to future generations, waiting the day when the honor of their forefathers might be avenged. The passing of time can put many on both sides into a false sense of ease. The War was generations ago, what has it to do with us today? Then suddenly without warning the defeated army comes to life and turns on their conquerors from within the secure walls of the empire. Like the gift-horse given to the ancient Trojans, and used to secretly transport enemy Greek Warriors into the sanctuary and security of the luxurious and beautiful city of Troy, only to have these warriors come forth at an opportune moment, and wreak devastation.
.
A very thin line between continuing and perishing often determines the rise and fall of empires. An example is given in the story of Damocles; a native of Syracuse in the fourth century B.C., which was ruled by the tyrant Dionysius the Elder. The uncertainty of human existence, and thereby of empires was demonstrated when Damocles was invited to join in the 'grandeur and happiness' of the ruler Dionysius.
.
The tyrant ruler invited him to attend a magnificent banquet where he would be entertained and lavished with great fanfare and splendor. While thoroughly enjoying himself, Damocles happened to look upward and spotted a naked sword hanging directly above his head, pointed downward at him. Nothing more then a very thin human hair suspended the sword. Damocles then realized the precariousness of his personal security, and that of royalty. These things, which offer deceptive mental and physical peace, can so easily pass away, more quickly then they have been provided.
.

The year 2011 ends a century and a half since the bells of freedom and independence rang out across the Southland in 1861 and a new nation was born: The Confederate States of America! We as a people fought four bloody years and lost the battle phase of The War for Confederate Independence. Yet today that long ago conflict looms over the Yankee Empire like the Sword of Damocles. Even as you read, that sword hangs by a thin human hair over 'Babylon on the Potomac. Unlike Damocles, today's tyrant rulers have not the inclination nor does it seem the time, amidst their power politicking to look upward and see what looms overhead.
.
There exists over today’s empire only a small thin human hair standing between super power status and that of a third-world power or of perishing completely. We forget that within the lifetime of anyone born prior to 1989, the Soviet Union maintained the second largest military force on earth, with 150 divisions on its Western flanks, possessing the worlds largest nuclear submarine fleet, missile fleet, and tank corps. Inside of a few weeks it was all history, as the Sword of Damocles fell upon them. Like Damocles the fall didn't come from an outside force, but from within the empire. Indeed, from within their own capital city!
.
While everything crumbled about them [and in such a short time] a panel of generals plotted to take over an empire which history had already by-passed. These shortsighted men, who had walked in the halls of power in the second mightiest empire on earth, did not see the end coming, even when it was imminently upon them. Why you might wonder, couldn't such learned and experience men not see the end coming? Because they, being so totally confident of their overwhelming military power and the might of their superior technology, thought the end should it come, could only happen in the midst of an invasion, during the smoke and fire of battle. At the very least, it would be accompanied by riotous conditions across the width and breadth of this mighty empire.
.
In the end, it took no more then a small puff of political wind, and less then 200 men, to bring down the tyrannical might of the Soviet Union. In the midst of their arrogance and the goose step of their armies, they had failed to look upward, and see the Sword of Damocles hanging above their heads. How could it be said the Sword of Damocles hangs over the Yankee Empire? Are their just reasons? Many such reasons might be listed but for the sake of space, only a few will be mentioned. They proclaim rights under the Declaration of Independence as sacred and unalienable, and then deny those same rights to the Confederate States of America, as well as their own unborn children.
.
Hypocrisy in assuming an aloof and nearly divine moral tone in regards to slavery and segregation, when they themselves perpetuated these institutions, transported slaves and profited thereby. Aggressively invading, conquering and subjugating a free and independent nation, without provocation! These barbarians Committed rape, robbery, murder and arson on a colossal scale against peoples foreign to themselves. Committing a holocaust against the Confederate people and nation, constituting crimes against humanity and war crimes, not unlike those carried out by the Third Reich of Nazi Germany.
.
Aiding, abetting, supporting and defending mass murder, referred to by them as freedom of choice, against 50 million-plus innocent and unborn babies. These Yankees committed what today would bring charges of crimes against humanity and war crimes consisting of wanton slaughter, cultural genocide, as well as the violations of treaties and other commitments, against the American Indian Nations. Transgressions against the Almighty God and the Holy Scripture, constitute abominations so repugnant, they desecrate the very foundations of human civilization and behavior. Our modern demolition and disposal techniques, historical revisionism, and bureaucratic secrecy, have made it impossible to show you in graphical reality of the instruments of torture or the ovens, as was possible after the Second World War.
.
In what form the Sword of Damocles will fall upon the Yankee Empire, we can only imagine. Perhaps some seemingly happen-chance incident holds the trip key, starting the dominoes to tumble. It may well come when our modern day retreating Confederate Armies cease their retreat and turn to fight. The factor unknown to our adversaries is the time and the form it will take. Likely it will unfold upon a political, cultural or literal battlefield and under conditions of Confederate choosing, according to a scenario, which will neutralize the huge advantage they have over us.
.

The honorable Jefferson Davis, Confederate States President, stated so long ago, "The Principle for which we contend is bound to reassert itself, though it may be at another time and in another form." No one, not even our adversaries, could have predicted the rise and growth of this present day Confederate Movement. Thus "another form" of which President Davis spoke my turn out to be in play today! Surprisingly, the movement is already well underway at the beginning of the twentieth first century, and this describes the second part of the Davis quote, the "time."
.
However, the Confederate people being an honorable and descent people who cherish all human life are not without some measure of mercy toward the nation, which holds us under occupation. Though that mercy has in no way been rightly deserved! Allow it to be said, there exist a way in which the sword of ultimate judgment, may be removed from over their heads, and our foes are invited to take this just course. Begin by openly declare the truths of history, and allow Confederate and Southern history, heritage, culture and nationhood to be taught and practiced throughout the land, in our institutions and public places. Pass a federal bill into law clearly indicating the South had lawfully and constitutionally seceded, and formed a new nation, the Confederate States of America. Rather than ignore or resist the empire would do well by actual aiding the process of liberating and restoring the Confederacy.
.
Return sovereignty to all the individual States; allow each of them to govern over all affairs domestic within their own borders. Including, but not limited to abortion, race relations as well as bible and prayer in public schools. These are divisive issues to be sure, but they are State Issues! The empire should concentrate on carrying out the mandate prescribed for the federal government and described in their constitution, such as securing our borders against illegal immigration, mass migration, and maintaining a solid based monetary system. Should these things be done, the United States would not only survive, though as a smaller nation.
.
It would stand among the most honored and respected nations on earth. Its moral, ethical strength and influence would far surpass any military strength it once enjoyed. The two nations, the Confederate States and the United States would then stand as brethren and powerful allies, among the nations of the earth. Short of the aforementioned, he who believes this present empire will continue indefinitely stands blind to the shifting winds of time and history. The thin human hair holding the Sword of Damocles above their heads grows thinner and weaker with passing time. In like manner as with every empire of the past, that hair will eventually break, and the Sword will fall upon them.
.If it appears to some that a nation has been spoken of negatively, it is only in pursuit of the truth! Having been created as a Voluntary Republic of Sovereign States, it has since been transformed into a Consolidation of Socialist States. Thus they have placed the Sword of Damocles hanging over them there them. Therefore they alone are capable of its safe removal, a process that will only commence should they turn from their present ways and pursue truth and honor. However, I wouldn't bet the ranch on that happening anytime soon!

"For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark. And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know what hour your Lord Doeth come." (Matthew 24:38-42
