Battle Strategy for Red Cloud's War
We do not restart Red Cloud's War without considering the ramifications. The Reign of Terror when the U.S. government hunted down and killed so many who fought in the Battle of Wounded Knee '73.
We do not forget the pain.
So we will not fight with guns this time, unless you try to kill us, again. This time, we will use our brains and our Indian ways. And the sleeper agents. Those who no one knows are Indians in body and / or spirit.
This time we hit infrastructure.
Surgical precision strikes at stuff. And the stuff that moves stuff. And the stuff that keeps stuff moving.
Those millions of miles of fiber cable. Those thousands of miles of railroad track electronics. The huge electrical power lines that keep the economy pumping and humming.
That stuff. We take it all down.
The first step is simply to stop doing work that's important. The maintenance undone, the sand in the gears, the leaky pipes of progress.
Then some of us. A few of us. One perhaps at first will become a hornet. A buzzing bee in the system.
We will not target everything, for we won't do what the U.S. did to Iraq in Shock and Awe while thousands of children died. Or with the sanctions before them as they still do to Cuba and Iran like angry vindictive little children who just can't let go of the pain of their mother's unlove, or their father's beating.
We have not any quarrel with people, we have a quarrel with the structures of power as currently constituted. And with the leaders who lead those structures without thinking of the children and the grandchildren for seven generations.
So think about that really important part, in that really important machine that runs the really important service we all depend on.
That's what we'll be attacking.
But rest assured. We won't attack anything without fully understanding the ramifications for people. Human beings. Our sisters and brothers. So we will put people first.
And we will think of all our relatives, the birds and the fishes and the buffalo.
But oh, your profits will by the wayside
