The evidence is overwhelming that this is a low-intensity insurgency, and not just handfuls of “extremists” or conventional criminal sectors, though those are obviously present as well.
On Monday, June 1, the insurrectionary wind continues to blow on the streets of many cities of the United States, while President Trump implores mayors to restore order on the spot, and promises to send the army to subdue the revolt. A revolt of this magnitude in the United States has not been seen in decades. There have never been so many curfews and National Guard soldiers deployed in the territory for decades. The last riots that required so many counter-insurgency measures date back to those of April 1968, which started in response to the assassination of Martin Luther King.
