In 73 days regime change will be an accomplished fact.
My position will be overrun on 20 JAN 08. Dying in place is not a viable option. Surrender is. Some may escape. Others may choose evasion and resistance. Among the most effective resisters will be those who have prepared themselves to be Stay Behinds.
A Stay Behind force is left in position to conduct a specified mission when the remainder of the force withdraws or retires from the area. Sometimes the best way to get into the enemy’s rear is to hunker down and survive while his front rolls over you. From the British Auxiliary Units to the Nazi Werwolf to the Fedayeen Saddam, Stay Behinds planned, trained and equipped for Irregular Warfare before they stayed behind. NATO had an extensive Stay Behind army , and the Italian contingent, Gladio, became famous among conspiracy buffs back in 1990, and was resurrected to serve as a truther boogie man in 2005.
Make good use of these 73 days. Many things that are comparatively easy to accomplish in the permissive present will become much more difficult, complicated and visible in the non-permissive future.
