Whenever a secession takes place, the larger political entity rarely takes the news with grace and dignity. Revenge and attacks are the usual response.
America has gone through a few secession episodes itself, like many other nations throughout history. For example, when the American colonies seceded from Britain in 1776, the British did not take it too well, and war would follow. Neither did the U.S. northern states let the southern states secede peacefully in the 1860's.
While it's great news to see England and Wales vote to get out of the European Union, it's not over 'till it's over.
How will the globalist elites proceed from here? Will they the let the British leave without causing any trouble, or can we expect the usual revenge tactics?
Former Reagan Administration member Paul Craig Roberts offers up some thoughts that argue the latter will likely take place:
The EU and NATO are evil institutions. These two institutions are mechanisms created by Washington in order to destroy the sovereignty of European peoples. These two institutions give Washington control over the Western world and serve both as cover and enabler of Washington’s aggression. Without the EU and NATO, Washington could not force Europe and the UK into conflict with Russia, and Washington could not have destroyed seven Muslim countries in 15 years without being isolated as a hated war criminal government.

Will the globalist elites strike back?
That's yet to be seen.
Does history suggest that the British should be vigilant if they're serious about their independence?
