ADT on A Balloon Gone Up

What was happening was that the Party was quietly setting up the mechanics and logistics of a long-haul strategy to free our Homeland. We now had one advantage over the pre-10/22 period, in that at least now we know how “it” was going to happen. We knew we wouldn’t be dealing with some kind of bizarre post-apocalyptic road warrior science fiction scenario, nor would we be dealing with any kind of nationwide mass uprising against the regime. No space aliens, no biological warfare plagues, no post-apocalyptic world. Straight colonial war of a small nation for independence against a larger occupying power, just like the Old Man had predicted, and for that there were plenty of encouraging historical precedents.

--“A Distant Thunder”, pg 295
