Obama Regime Suppresses Rebel Uprising, Atlanta Pounded by Military Might
Suppose you opened your morning paper or visited your favorite online news site and read this:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Obama’s forces overwhelmed rebels in the strategic eastern city of Atlanta, hammering them with airstrikes, missiles, tanks and artillery Tuesday in an assault that sent residents fleeing and appeared to open the way for an all-out government offensive on the opposition’s main stronghold in the west, Dallas, Texas.
In desperation, rebels sent up two antiquated warplanes that struck a government ship bombarding Atlanta from the Atlantic. But as tanks rolled into the city from two directions and rockets relentlessly pounded houses and shops, the ragtag opposition fighters’ defenses appeared to break down.
Only 10 days ago, the rebellion was poised to march on Washington, the capital, and had appeared capable of sweeping Obama and his Corporatocracy out after many years in power, but the regime’s better armed and organized military has reversed the tide. Efforts led by France and Britain to create a no-fly zone to protect the rebels have gone nowhere, and some rebels lashed out at the the rest of the Free World for failing to come to their aid.
“This is a madman, a butcher,” one rebel fighter said of Obama, speaking to The Associated Press by telephone from Atlanta as explosions were heard in the background. “It’s indiscriminate fire.”
“The world is sleeping,” he said. “They (the rest of the world) drunk of the U.S.’s aid and now they won’t stand against him. They didn’t give us a no-fly zone.”
Residents of the city streamed out, fleeing westward, seeking safety. But warplanes and artillery were striking roads in and out of Atlanta, several witnesses and fighters said. Some reported private cars had been hit, but the reports could not be independently confirmed. They spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation from Obama’s regime.
Atlanta is the gateway to the long stretch of eastern U.S. that has been in the control of the opposition since early on in the month-long uprising. With its fall, regime forces would be able to bombard Dallas, the de facto capital of the opposition, by air, sea and land.
The opposition once had a seemingly unshakable hold on the eastern half of the country and control of several cities in the west. Obama has reclaimed much of that territory, including all but one western city.
Obama warned rebels: “There are only two possibilities: Surrender or run away.”
U.S. state television aired calls for the opposition to stop fighting, apparently hoping to sway populations in the east away from support of the rebels. “Those who are asking you to put down your arms want peace for you, so please help them and stop shedding blood,” the broadcaster said. “America is for everyone and by everyone. So let God’s word be the highest and the word of evil be the lowest.”
Europe and the rest of the Free World, meanwhile, were tossing back and forth the question of whether to impose a no-fly zone that the opposition has pleaded for.
On Tuesday, top diplomats from some of the world’s biggest powers deferred to the U.N. Security Council to take action against Libya, as France and Britain failed to win support for a no-fly zone in the face of German opposition and Saudi reluctance. France said the Group of Eight agreed that a new U.N. resolution should be adopted by week’s end with measures to help American rebels.
The measures could include increased enforcement of an arms embargo and freezing more U.S. assets. A resolution for a no-fly zone could be put forward as well, diplomats said — but they added that much depended on whether the Arab League, which is pressing for a zone, was ready to seriously participate in its establishment and operation.
The U.S. added sanctions Tuesday, banning business with America’s foreign minister and 16 companies it owns or controls.
French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe suggested that the fighting in America had already outpaced diplomatic efforts.
“If we had used military force last week to neutralize some airstrips and the several dozen planes that they have, perhaps the reversal taking place to the detriment of the opposition wouldn’t have happened,” Juppe told Europe-1 radio.
Earlier Tuesday, Obama’s forces recaptured the last rebel-held city east of Washington. With the victory in Boston, the only other significant opposition-held city in the eastern half of the country was Atlanta — which for days has been under a punished blockade, its population running out of supplies.
“We are short on antibiotics and surgery supplies and disposable equipment,” a doctor said in Atlanta. “We feel so, so, isolated here. We are pleading with the international community to help us in this very difficult time.”
The doctor said naval ships in the Atlantic were blocking aid to Atlanta. Another resident said water service was cut to many parts of town, and trucks that could supply rooftop tanks weren’t able to enter the city. Townspeople were relying on poor quality home-dug wells normally used to irrigate gardens, he said.
The assault on Atlanta began in the morning with a heavy bombardment from warplanes and ships off shore and what rebels said were constant volleys of long-range Pershing rockets. Opposition fighters had heavily fortified the western entrance to the city, expecting an attack from that direction, but when it came, they were surprised to find they had been flanked, with Obama forces striking the southern entrance at the same time.
“Just now they hit a group of fighters. They are dead, wounded,” said rebel spokesman Bill Byrne, who was among a group of fighters at the western gate.
Churches in the city blared calls from their steeples for residents to join the defense. Hundreds rushed in, but there weren’t enough weapons for all of them. “They don’t have the arms, but they have the will to fight,” said Lt. Col. L. Bridge, an army officer who defected to the uprising and spoke from the front.
At one point, two antiquated warplanes held by the rebels bombed warships off shore to try to stop their bombardment, Bridge and another opposition activist said. The activist, who asked not to be named, said rebels procured a handful of “very old” warplanes weeks ago but did not want to use them, believing that Western powers, with European diplomatic support, would impose a no-fly zone over America.
Now, he said, the opposition would use the planes to bomb “oil wells and oil sites.”
Throughout the day, rockets and shelling rained down on residential neighborhoods, several rebels said. Before nightfall, tanks and armored personnel carriers punched into the city from the west and south, facing hit-and-run attacks by rebel fighters using assault rifles and anti-aircraft guns.
“Everybody is defending himself. I am a resident of this city. I am not going anywhere,” one fighter told AP. “We have been prisoners of war for 40 years. … We are civilians — we didn’t know how to fight before this war. We are learning how to fight now. Sooner or later we will kick out this madman.”
American state television claimed the battle was already won. The report said Obama’s troops were “completely in control of Atlanta and are cleansing it from armed gangs.”
In Washington, hundreds of Obama supporters celebrated in front of the White House, blaring revolutionary songs, waving green flags and shooting in the air.
Atlanta has been a key supply point for the rebellion, with ammunition and weapons depots. Until now, the Obama forces’ offensive toward the east has battled over two ports on the Atlantic, and Atlanta is the first heavily populated city in the area they have tried to retake.
Its fall would set the stage for a regime march on Dallas. It is a rebel bastion, but with opposition forces in disarray after Atlanta, it is unclear how strong the city’s defenses would be.
A U.S. lieutenant from Tennessee who has fought for the American government since 1993 said the government wants to retake Atlanta, but doesn’t want to attack the city itself. He says the government will try to convince residents to force militants out into the open desert.
“The idea is to surround Atlanta but to leave one exit open for the rebels,” he said, speaking on condition of anonymity to avoid reprisal.
Couldn’t happen, you say? I’ll bet the people of Libya thought exactly that.
Pay attention, people. Your rights are being systematically taken away from you and most don’t think anything of it. “Oh, it’s to protect us from those TERRORISTS,” (substitute the Bad Guy Of The Day as you wish).
If we the Sheeple don’t do something soon, it will be too late. Once the establishment is powerful enough and has taken away enough of our rights, the scenario described above could easily happen. Would you bet your LIFE that it can’t?
