overview

Wars are difficult for many people to imagine occurring in their own cities or towns, ... yet they are fought everyday between rival factions for one reason or another. Wars can be waged between law enforcement and criminals or political parties and corporate entities. They can develop between coworkers, neighbors and schools or be confined within a single family unit. Any number of circumstances can be a catalysts for an all-out war with the potential to encompass entire regions of citizens and countries. It is the indifference's between opposing parties and their unwillingness to agree or compromise on sensitive issues which can create the chances for launching wars. Wars are also initiated by design for reasons associated with ulterior motives which so many people are simply unaware of. Wars can occur at anyplace and anytime if allowed to metastasize and spiral out of control. It is then when a minor dispute can become a national issue that wars stand the potential of turning disastrous for everyone. People are often hard pressed in believing that such an event can happen to them until it actually occurs, ... which in many cases is too late.

War on Homeland Soil

.

War on homeland soil refers to such an event which occurs in the land or property where aggressors have engaged the current and controlling occupants with the aim of suppressing, dominating or taking control of persons and assets.

The word "WAR" implies a degree of resistance from the controlling inhabitants of the homeland in such a way that balance may be incurred in the hopes of defending against a hostile takeover by the aggressors.

Despite who may be fighting whom, ... be it factions residing within the same region or foreign entities looking to conquer, ... the meaning of "homeland" makes reference to a localized event. An act of aggression or war against residing inhabitants.

References to domestic or homeland wars often depict conflicts between groups of local inhabitants residing within those regions and are commonly referred to as  "Civil Wars" yet are not limited to those scenarios. Wars fought on a home land territory can be the result of an invading force such as from foreign or even alien entities, ... all with their own variation of motives

The term "War on domestic soil" implies a direct or collateral degree of damage to inhabitants of a specific homeland or region with the potential to suppress or eliminate aspects of freedom. Just the same are situations which have similar effects which are imposed on the inhabitants by their own administrative governments and is commonly referred to as "militarization".

.

.

Variations of war on homeland soil can be categorized yet not limited to the following descriptions.

.

Civil wars 

A civil war is a war between organized groups within the same state or country.   The aim of one side may be to take control of the country or a region, to achieve independence for that specific region or to change government policies. Civil type wars typically encompass most all citizens living in or around regions where the was is waged.

.

Drug wars

Drug wars encompass many such conflicts between rival factions and or law enforcement. Drug wars can be fought between those who sell drugs and for reasons associated with "turf", (claimed regions), attempting to acquire customers within those regions. Drug wars are also waged between law enforcement and drug dealers on behalf of law abiding citizens and those who make laws against drug trafficking.

.

Social wars

Social wars are similar to that of civil type wars and are typically fought between opposing parties residing within the same country or region. The separation between civil and social wars may be best defined as a difference between cultural perspectives. Social wars have typically been waged between specific tribes or cultures withing the same region. This is certainly a situation that has the potential for one side to commit acts of genocide on another.

.

Religious wars

A religious or holy war is a war primarily caused or justified by differences in religion It is evident that religion as one aspect of a people's cultural heritage may serve as a cultural marker or ideological rationalization for a conflict that has deeper ethnic and cultural differences. Religious beliefs can without a doubt become the catalyst for civil and social type wars and have the potential to infect or encourage wars against distant countries. Now days, ... the world is being subjected to  instigators of religious wars known as "Jihad".

.

Corporate wars

Corporate warfare is the concept of one or more companies which wage war for their own interests. Many people believe that in these modern times the concept of corporate war has become a reality. It has become evident with election procedures whereas corporations utilizing their money and resources have corrupted the democratic processes with the aim of influencing election results to swing in their favor. It is also believed that corporations and their influences have grown beyond control and now posses the power and financial strength to make or change the rules we live by. It has now become accepted knowledge by many enlightened citizens that corporations are in control of military forces by which wars can be waged.

.

Wars of independence

A war of independence is a conflict occurring over a territory that has declared independence. Once the state that previously held the territory sends in military forces to assert its sovereignty or the native population clashes with the former occupier, a separatist rebellion has begun. If a new state is successfully established, the conflict is usually known as a ¨War of Independence¨. 

.

War invasion

War is a state of armed conflict between societies. It is generally characterized by extreme collective aggression, destruction, and usually high mortality. The set of techniques and actions used to conduct war is known as warfare.  An invasion is a military offensive in which large parts of combatants of one geopolitical entity aggressively enter territory controlled by another such entity, generally with the objective of either conquering, liberating or re-establishing control or authority over a territory, forcing the partition of a country, altering the established government or gaining concessions from said government, or a combination thereof.

.

All the variations listed above have common threads associated with war. Despite the nature or cause of war they can inevitably result in death and destruction for many people residing within the regions.

.

Militarization of homeland soil

.

Militarization on homeland soil makes reference in this content to the  presence and deployment of regional law enforcement and military type entities within the borders of the country for which those forces represent.

.

These are situations which are also domestic in nature. The display of militarization by an administration or government is typically intended to reinforce the final word of rule and to maintain a degree of order by way of intimation through the very presence of said forces.

In some countries, ... the final word of authority is dispersed through measures of violent acts by those militarized forces as a result of a wide variety of motives. The variation of motives in many instances depends heavily upon who is in control of those forces. History often depicts that countries which are accustomed to utilizing the show of force typically subject their citizens to a life without the ability to prosper or think beyond a set of given parameters. Punishment of sorts is often administered to those in defiance or opposition of rules set forth by administering parties. A defining word for such action is "oppression".  (An unjust and cruel exercise of authority or power without care and compassion for the outcome or results to it's citizens).

Now days, ... many regions are becoming militarized by their state and local law enforcement agencies with the aim of increasing power and might of the presiding authority. Aspects of intimidation are becoming enhanced by way of increased budgets which have allocated huge sums of money and resources in the aim of turning law enforcement agencies into militarized machines of suppression.

Additional counter measures are often launched with the aim of reducing the ability for citizens to protect themselves from an out of control government. Such measures include enacting new rules and laws preventing the ownership of defensive weapons and armament. An unarmed civilian is much easier to control or force into a particular set of parameters or behavior.

Causes for domestic or homeland war?

.

A domestic or homeland war can be initiated and realized through various means. Some are internally encouraged while others are a  deliberate act of war caused by external forces. 

.

»  Internal

   A war caused or initiated from the result of internal or domestic disputes within a country or region.

.

»  External

A war caused or initiated as a result of a forign entity or invading force.

.

.

Internal / External Catalysts

.

Internal 

Spontaneous localized demonstrations can quickly turn into a riot resembling war like characteristics with tenancies to explode into an all out war but will typically not evolve without greater support and planning. It is the kind of effort that will inevitably fail without making a substantial difference through acts of destruction and violence alone. These are initial measures taken as a result of failed negotiations through a democratic process or lack of satisfaction in a governmental or judicial system. Localized demonstrations and riots are not without their degree of concern and effects, ... however they typically lack the overall unity and serious support and planning in order to be effective.  [More]

Effectiveness comes from reoccurring events which can certainly add fuel to a growing cause. It is a common belief amongst instigators that repetition encourages the increased chances of success. Each time an event occurs it stands the potential to draw favor from supporters which can increase the number of activists who desire to join the fight. A progression of strength in numbers can inevitably lead to a definitive and viable division between what once was a minuscule or minor endeavor and what can become an all out Civil war. If those who are determined to succeed at acquiring balance gain the support, planning and hearts of the citizens than the results for negotiations may equivilate to a reasonable outcome or war. [More stuff]

It is when an opposing party gains enough strength or support and becomes organized enough to present a viable threat that an administration engages with the aim of stopping further advances through counter measures of force. This is when it becomes war. True spontaneous wars are more of thing from the past. The United States experienced a network of demonstrations initiated by the during the "Occupy Wall Street" movement as well as the events surrounding the police brutality accusations. In both circumstances the demonstrations and rioting was vast and encompassed a great many people across the country. These events also had what appeared to be an outside influence and support of factions and organizations with power and influence which may have participated in orchestrating such an event. These sorts of events have the potential to grow into a civil war if all the supporting elements and planning are accounted for. Elements of support involve a reasonable cause in addition to viable equipment associated with defensive measures, technology, planning, and the power and backing of the people. Once momentum is achieved the balance and outcome resides in those factors previously mentioned.

Civil wars can be the result of those with an ulterior plan orchestrated with the intent on causing division or war within a nation? This has been done in previous history as a method or catalysts with the aim of uprooting current administrations or rulers. Persons residing within a war zone will most certainly be effected by such an event and stand the potential of loosing property, freedom and their lives.

Other contributing factors known for initiating internally based wars are associated with religious indifference's, ... divisions between the wealthy and poor or corporate and political aspects. Additional causes for war are induced or enhanced by the use of drugs and alcohol which is certainly no secret for opposing or forign entities. What better way to dismantle a nation than to infiltrate its upcoming generations with mind altering substances, ... only to convince them of lies and deceptive views of their own country.

.

External

Wars being fought on homeland soil are certainly not limited to internal or domestic catalysts and situations. It is well understood that wars can and have occurred as a result of invading forces from abroad. These are referred to in this content as "external", ... simply defined as a homeland war initiated by invading foreign entities. History depicts that many such wars are common for the human race whereas an invading military campaign utilizes force on another nation with the intent of conquering or acquiring resources. Wars can also be waged from external entities without utilizing military force or action as such. Now days, ... as a result of world economics, ... wars can be created through the back door of a nations economy. Words such as "sanctions" and "embargo" are terms which define actions against another nation that can cripple economic flow and progress. The result of such actions can bring most modern civilized nations to their knees. This is a vulnerable position which can be taken advantage of and exploited for an invading opposition.

.

External causes for war on a homeland region are typically that of the agenda of an invading forign entity. History depicts that in Biblical times the act of conquering neighboring villages was quite common and almost equivalent to that of a sporting or recreational event. In those days such an event had been done with the aim of acquiring resources but was not always the case. On many occasions the scope of an attack was to eliminate all life forms within a city or town and to destroy all structures which remained. Killing others was often the sole reason for an attacking one another.  [More]

Other external circumstances involve a deep rooted hatred between nations or cultures where wars have been waged between factions for many generations. Some wars become apart of cultural differences which seem to be never ending, ... even if those fighting amongst one another have no idea as to why they continue in doing so. [More]

Who is effected by a homeland war?

.

Almost everyone within the region is effected by war

.

It is assumed that anyone living within a region of war is effected. For the most part that is true. How we react, ... how we live, ...where we live in relation to the fight and our level of involvement are key factors in what happens to us during such events occurring on our homeland soil.

This is a reality typically assumed for impacting unstable regions or third world countries. These are regions thought of to be less civilized and vulnerable to disputes or attack. It is well understood that wars do happen and are fairly common in specific areas on Earth but are certainly not limited to those conditions or specific cultural parameters.

Unless we have a complete understanding as to the consequences and effects of war occurring on the land in which we reside, ... the potential exists to either perish or loose what little freedom we have during such events. That, ... for most people can become a disaster. For the most part, ... anyone unprepared for such an event stands the potential to become victimized by wars occurring on their homeland soil.
