To all the people out there that are so hell bent on wanting a Civil war
But lets first define what a CIvil War is
What is a definition of a CIVIL War – from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_war,
A civil war is a war between organized groups within the same nation state or republic, or, less commonly, between two countries created from a formerly united nation state. The aim of one side may be to take control of the country or a region, to achieve independence for a region, or to change government policies. A civil war is a high-intensity conflict, often involving regular armed forces, that is sustained, organized and large-scale. Civil wars may result in large numbers of casualties and the consumption of significant resources.
With the above definition, one of many, please can you explain the following?
· How will a Civil war be fought in South Africa?
· How will you distinguish between who is your enemy and who is a friend?
· Where will the fighting take place?
· who will do the fighting?
Fortunately for SA in order to have a civil war there need to be 2 sides that are organised, and niether side is militarily organised, live behind high walls, don’t even know their neighbour. So if you follow the definition of a Civil War above, then the chances of a Civil War happening in SA are very, very slim thank Goodness as Civil Wars only Benefit Criminals an no-one else.
Yes ,So the majority of the minority folk in South Africa feel marginalised, oppressed, and fear their interests will not be taken care of, so what options do these Minorities have, currently under the Constitution they have a voice and protection, but for how long and if this option is taken away what options do the Minority Folk have.
The frustrations are building up and it is reaching a critical point, the question is not will it explode but when will it explode and what will the consequences be or will nothing happen with a mentality of "if I am okay behind these walls then all is okay" and pretend that nothing is happening and go into self denial. What happens next?
We know that CIVIL War is not an option, so what other means do the minority have at their disposal to fight a PERSEEVED corrupt unjust government.
