The American Civil War of 2012
So, let's say America gets into another civil war right now.

Who would have the advantage? How would it be divided?

This is how I think it would be divided (see attached):

North - Blue
South - Gray

The gray states have most of the guns and people that know how to use them. Could be trouble for the blue.

Don't worry Rev, it looks like you guys are well on the way to doing that anyhow.

Sadly Canada will follow suit.... Sadcryface2

Really? Hawaii is gray?
It's tough, because people aren't so simple to catagorise anymore they won't pick sides as easily.
Nor would it be as easy to track the progress of any conflict because absolutely everyone is potentially an armed to the teeth death machine.
Also the amount of weapons people have now is insane, look at any high profile shooting.

There's actually a Vertigo series on it, called DMZ, civil war, with NYC as a neutral demilitarised zone cut of from both sides.

This pretty much sums it all up.

There are more of you packed into smaller areas, all the better for those with automatic weapons. Hobo

They're mechanically adept but otherwise pretty much technologically inept. I'd hack into their targeting and C2 (command and control) systems and and have them shooting each other all the while thinking they were winning the war. Big Grin
