Throughout history that is how things often begin. With the white population being only in the single digits percent-wise, it is hard to imagine much more than short term defensive tactics and a rear guard action intended to let as many escape the country as can occur. Banding together and thinking through defense options is good but ultimately it is a war that whites cannot win. Other countries may aid evacuation but I wouldn’t count on much more. Those with passports and any kind of entry visa to someplace else may have an easier time of it, but if I were there I would think long and hard about what my exit options might be. I hope it doesn’t come to this but it is prudent to entertain the thought.
I am one of those who has no intention of running away from barbarity, so I can’t agree with you there (your end remarks). But I do agree with you that the likelihood – merely in my humble opinion like yours – is that when things do erupt they will erupt all of a sudden, sparked by some mundane or not-very-spectacular “provocation”, and no-one will see the moment coming.
