Mutinous National Guard
Go On Looting Spree

by Thomas W. Chittum
Sept 22, 2003

. . .If there is on thing Sgt. Skull cannot abide it's mutinous dogs. I hope you've been paying attention because it's Sgt. Skull's quiz time. When was the last major mutiny by American soldiers?
. . . I bet you haven't a clue, but Sgt. Skull knows because he has a nose for mutinous dogs.
. . .On September 19, 1989, hurricane Hugo slammed into the Virgin Islands, an American territory in the Caribbean Sea near Puerto Rico. The population of the Virgin Islands was 85% black and Hispanic, and 15% white. They were all American citizens living on American soil, and the American flag flew overhead. The hurricane knocked out almost all electricity and water services, and leveled hundreds of homes and stores. The anarchy that followed the devastation of the hurricane was a preview of the impending civil war that will destroy mainland America in our lifetime.
. . .In the aftermath of the hurricane, looting and anarchy erupted along racial lines. According to the New York Times, "Armed gangs of 100 or more plundered the streets." There were "roving, machete-wielding gangs ..." Whites were "punched, clubbed and driven from their homes." The whites had to arm themselves with machetes to defend their lives and their homes. When local authorities called out the mostly-black national guard to restore order, the guardsmen revolted and joined in the looting. These mutinous national guardsmen were American soldiers who had sworn a military oath of loyalty and obedience. It meant nothing. Numerous eye witnesses reported that the national guardsmen and police robbed stores and drove off in national guard trucks they had loaded with the merchandise they had stolen.
. . .Black rioters armed with machetes roamed the streets for days, sometimes in gangs of 100 or more. They looted and burned stores. They threatened, robbed and assaulted white people, sometimes driving them from their homes. Hundreds of imprisoned convicts escaped and poured into the streets, fueling the chaos. The whites had to defend themselves with whatever was at hand. Some had guns, but others had to stand guard over their homes with machetes. Many whites fled to the airport in unsuccessful attempts to flee. The anarchy lasted for days. Order was only restored when President Bush ordered in paratroopers from Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. When the soldiers arrived at the airport, terrified whites begged to be evacuated.
. . .The events described were not a piece of B-movie fiction; they really happened. What's more, they happened in America, not in some foreign banana republic, but right here in our very own banana republic. All the people involved were Americans - all of them. The black rioters were Americans. The escaped convicts were Americans. The looting police and looting national guardsmen were Americans. The whites who had to defend their homes with machetes were Americans. The whites who fled to the airport for evacuation were Americans. The paratroopers who rescued them were Americans. They were all Americans, all of them.
. . .Know this: When stressed, our multicultural imperial society broke down into an anarchy of clashing tribal fragments. Know this: America is an empire, and only bayonets and police truncheons are holding it together. Know this: Throw in some popcorn and you've got yourself a fair-to-middling preview of our impending mess here when the Glorious Imperial Economy goes belly up.
. . .Our Glorious Imperial Legions now face utter defeat in Iraq. When the last imperial carpetbagger leaves hanging onto the skids of a helicopter, the dollar will tank, gas will cost more than $5 a gallon, and our economy will crash. If you don't think our military units will mutiny, check out this link which has actual New York Times account of the Virgin Islands national guard mutiny. Have a nice imperial day.
