Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Molotov could have never possibly imagined that his name would be forever ironically linked with the concept of struggle against authority.

It's somewhat refreshing to read about the basic formula/composition of such a simple and effective improvised incindiary device...on Wikipedia.

I have some suggestions for enhanced effectiveness of these particular weapons, however perhaps I should refrain from stating them here, out of respect for Tyler. Wiki mentions several ingredients that are known to increase efficacy, such as simple detergents or pieces of vulcanized rubber.

Do your own DD on this topic.

This video also rocks, night and day they battled the Greek riot police in Karetea with lasers and molotovs. Low-tech but highly effective.

No American Idol in Greece. What the fuck do they put in the water over there? These people do not fuck around.

I don't know, but they've been drinking it for a while.  Just ask Darius or Xerxes.  It's nice to see people who refuse to back down.  There may be hope for humans after all.

They certainly have been drinking it for a while. The family of one of my parent's hail from Greece. I remember visiting the country almost twenty years ago. The impression I was left with is that they all seemed to be arguing with one another! Maybe it has to do with a culture of bargaining for all/most/some of their daily needs. As opposed to the United States, where we pay whatever the price tag says. One is a society that breeds passivity, the other NOT. Greece is also a country in which it tops the charts, worldwide, in tobacco consumption. The side effect of nicotine is distinctly not passivity. That's my take on the situation.

Think again, its is more like -What the fuck do they don't put in the water over there?- Greeks are just well fed humans.

The old dominant species of the planet. If you don't have the strength to fight back, check your food and water... You will be surprised.

Pigs are officers who take the wrong side of the law. These officers are not looking out for their fellow citizens, they're only there to serve and protect the interests of the people looking to install a landfill pretty god damn close to a major town in Greece.

The majority of Greek police are pigs. Instead of turning on their masters and storming parliament where the real criminals are, they turn on their fellow citizens.

This is why we call police pigs. They look up the shoplifters and let the big fish get away scott free.

cossack --- I hope that your opinion is shared by many.....


I hope that there are thousands of strong men and women truly ready to restore the greatest nation to its people. 


I hope that all reading these posts share their insight with everyone…..


The hard working -- decent people of this nation are going to have to fight to take it back.  Right here --- in our states, in our towns, in our backyards.


This isn’t just payback -- we can’t leave this mess to our children – we have to start the fight now…

Who do the police officers care about most in a situation like this? Themselves and their family. Not you and not me. Because no matter what anyone says, in the end when the common folk are without a home or food, the "Good ole Boys" will be taken care of, as long as they "keep the peace".

I would gladly take up against those who say they are there to "serve and protect" because you can bet your bottom dollar that the "Good ole Boys" will be there to "serve and protect" TPTB not us. So when it does get here, remember who it is that gets screwed in the end.

When the shit hits the fan, the police and military will wait for it all to burn itself out before they move in...just like the Rodney King riots...they know you can't stop an avalanche once it starts.  When the killing is done and things have cooled down, they will move in to maintain the new order.  Make your plans...hopefully this never comes to pass, but the the probability now is much greater than it was 12 months ago...if you own a home you have insurance, eh?   So why not make your own policy?

yep, it's on.  it's been on.  in the states where the union bargaining rights are being taken away, it is easier to have the police on our side.

you can present a very convincing arguement to a policeman by starting off the conversation with how you think their union is being screwed and you don't think it's fair to those who risk their lives to protect.

they can't answer poorly to the statement, whether you believe in your statement or not.  starting points.  always useful.

this can be done and to get started one needs to turn off the damn tee vee!

police on our side helps immensely.  thanks to the politicians, they made our job easier for us.

funny how this all works to a full circle isn't it?

I've worked a great deal of emergency incidences with LEO's. There's a good reason why people choose to make a career of law enforcement. It's because, for the most part, they're too incompetent to do anything else for a living. If there's one thing I can tell people, it's that most all LEO's tend to have a huge egos, and if you stroke it just right, you can talk your way out of almost anything (provided you're not intoxicated).

They get off on fear and intimidation. Be respectful, but show no fear. Try to ignore the uniform, and speak to them as if they are the king-shit-of-the-universe that they think they are.

Many LEO's are very proud of their patrol vehicles. Compliment them on how quickly they caught up with you during that traffic stop. ("Damn bro, what do you have under that hood? You are QUICK!") Lay it on thick, but try to be convincing in your compliments. They've all got a highly tuned bullshit-detector.

I junked you in defense of the good LEO's who are out there...the ones who are not incompetent and who chose a life of public service because it was their calling.  It is like saying all soldiers are babykillers.  I agree that there are LEO's who are on a major power trip.  I grew up in a law enforcement household and have known officers who are decent and hardworking citizens.  I also knew an undersheriff who broke a man's neck in the processing room just because he could do it.  The decent officers refused to protect their boss and the victim won his lawsuit.  It will be the good officers we will rely upon during these hard times.  They are going to be between a rock and a hard place and will have to choose sides, but I'm betting that most will be brave and side with the people. We are already starting to see this among judges regarding foreclosures.  I think a lot of the problems we are seeing with the different systems in our country is the result of spinoff from the top down.  The disease has spread and the sociopaths have taken positions of power.  The people are beginning to see:  blinders are being lifted and all will have to account for their actions from now on.

I concur, 

   But, that is for the best.  Our children should not have to pay for our complacency.  We have been conned, robbed, and have had our freedoms taken away while we have been entertained by our televisions.  Huxley's Brave New World came to fruition.  Unfortunately, as the next stage, Orwell's 1984 is also being instituted.  We either fight back (by choosing not to play this game), or accept our fate (and our children's fate) as slaves.

The sad part is that nobody has the guts to murder anymore. All violent revolutionary groups, from the Brigades Rouges to Action Directe, died at the turn of the century.
