With the growing threat of war coming to America, the U.K., and Israel, learn survival strategies now so that day doesn’t take you by surprise. Even if you live in an area not known for military threats, you can still be at risk.
Are you ready for a major war? Expect economic collapse. Expect martial law. Expect a breakdown of society and mass food shortages.
When wars begin, first strikes happen unexpectedly …
How many readers here remember the surprise attack of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese on December 7, 1941?
What if a second Pearl Harbor takes place one day unexpectedly? What if one day the sky is filled with foreign fighter planes screaming overhead as one missile after another rains down across your region, state, or even hometown in a first strike attack?
Across the sky it would be a scene of “world war” magnitude as down below business districts, government buildings, and military bases are obliterated by one strike after another.
The White House … destroyed.
The Statue of Liberty … in ruins.
Los Angeles and New York City … both cities now smoking, charred craters.
If America is Attacked…
There is always the chance that American citizens will find themselves not prepared for life under a government that was no longer standing.
But Who Would Attack America?
We have Democrats and Republicans. Liberals and Conservatives. Those who think the U.S. is unbeatable. Those who know better …
What is the truth? Should the U.S. fear it’s enemies? Mention Russia and China to the average person — considered threats by the Pentagon during the Cold War days — and still considered threats today — and you might hear someone say: “Why would China attack the U.S.? They need us to buy their imports.”
“Why would Russia attack the U.S.? Russia’s military is weak. The U.S. is unbeatable.”
But are these true statements? Start digging into the facts and neither statement has merit. Russia has a lot more capabilities than we give them credit for, including access to an incredibly large stockpile of nuclear weapons and the distribution network to get a number of “suitcase nukes” into the U.S., if Russia wanted to.
Also worth mentioning: Russia and China have been steadily building their military capabilities, and at the same time have been in growing alliances, from economic trade and joint military exercises, to also doing business with U.S. enemies like Iran and North Korea.
Irish Times: Russians offer North Korea a new alliance
Wall Street Journal: China-Iran Trade Surge Vexes U.S.
XINHUANET: Russia, China, deepen ties, conduct joint military drills
China Post: China and Russia spying on U.S. at Cold War levels
Some of these articles go back a few years. The point of all this … to show that the U.S. has a lot to be concerned about when Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea are all meeting behind closed doors.
Two of these countries (both Iran and North Korea) have threatened publicly to destroy the United States, North Korea saying specifically it would destroy the U.S. with “precision nuclear strikes.”
If you haven’t heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and WATCH THIS VIDEO. He’s going to be the talk of 2016.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a UNIQUE SYSTEM that changed his life forever.
I already tried it myself and let me tell… you I was completely blown away… His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Whether you believe these threats are real — or they’re just propaganda — I believe there is just cause to be ready for war to one day soon come to the U.S. and it’s likely to involve nukes — and a lot of Americans dying.
North Korea: Threat After Threat After Threat
Don’t make the mistake of thinking these precision nuclear strikes North Korea is threatening would be fired from within North Korea’s borders.
What if North Korea puts these nukes on a cargo ship bound for the U.S. and then simply fires several nukes at coastal cities from a few miles off America’s shoreline?
Why Preparing for War May One Day Save Your Life
1. Be Prepared for Martial Law
What does it mean to be prepared for martial law?
It means that you need to be ready for U.S. government forces to make a local grab for power where communities across the region are told to lock down in homes or even possibly “FEMA camps”. FEMA camps may first appear outside areas that have suffered mass casualties, damaged or destroyed homes, and destroyed or leveled buildings.
Since any forward attack on the U.S. homeland is likely to follow a pre-emptive attack on the electrical grid (we’ve heard too many times how fragile the power grid is in recent years), expect an immediate disruption in transportation systems critical to food supplies. This means that under martial law we can expect government rationing, where long lines form for basic food needs, stretching several blocks or longer.
2. Be Prepared for U.S. Defense Computers to Go Haywire
The Chinese and Russian military have been accused many times of cyberattacks and intrusions on top level computer systems at multiple levels of U.S. defenses. We can bet that reach includes U.K. systems and other Western allies. Taken offline, we could expect this to hamper U.S. defenses and communications in ways that could give the upper hand to an attacking nation.
What About “Mutual Assured Destruction” from the Cold War?
3. Be Prepared for a Compromise of America’s Nuclear Missile Silos
With so many stocks of nuclear weapons held by the world’s superpowers (the U.S., Russia, and China), America’s policy of “mutual assured destruction” was in place to tell our enemies that “if you nuke us, we will nuke you.” The 1983 movie War Games showed how a computer hacker could accidentally start a world-wide nuclear war simply by triggering one country to fire off it’s nukes. Thankfully this was just a movie — if something like this had actually happened we would now be 30 years into a post apocalypse and the earth only beginning to recover from a world wide nuclear war that would have annihilated much of humanity back in 1983 – 1985.
So what about “mutual assured destruction” being a deterrent today? Well, it is still in place, and it is still a deterrent. Here’s a frightening fact for people to consider: If we are attacked with nukes by an outside nation, that would mean that they had probably circumvented (hacked) our computer systems at such a level that the attacking nation(s) somehow shut down communications or electrical power to the ICBM’s (nuclear missile silos) while also in some second scheme pin pointed the location of each of the U.S.’s nuclear submarines, and then dealt with those subs in some manner.
With our nuclear defenses thoroughly compromised, “mutual assured destruction” would be a null issue.
Regions Near the Coast: Attacks from the Air and Ocean
4. Things Are Not What They Seem
Successful first wave attacks at different times of history have arrived sometimes disguised as something else (such as a real life “Trojan Horse” from ancient Greek writings) or simply have been a complete surprise (the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941).
What avenues could a “Trojan Horse” strike the U.S. and disguise first wave attacks? Consider:
Cargo Ships that are carrying surface to air missiles, helicopters, tanks, and even troops.
Cruise Lines that are also carrying weapons, missiles, and troops.
Commercial jets flying in to the U.S. from overseas (the plot from the first “Red Dawn” from the early 1980s where a first wave attack was launched by Russia and allies and disguised as inbound commercial jets).
Orbiting Satellites carrying small (or large) nuclear tipped missiles that could withstand entry through the atmosphere and be fired on U.S. cities.
Foreign Exchange “Students” (some of these foreign exchange students, many who are here from China, may not be here just for a college degree — they may be here awaiting “orders”).
Which brings us to:
State and Civil Government: Attacks from Forces Already in the U.S
5. They Were Already Here
If you’re going to set up a new government once the first government falls, why obliterate standing and operational government buildings when you can simply take them?
With millions of illegal immigrants within our borders, and tens of millions more of “legal” immigrants and non U.S. citizens, such as international “business owners”, foreign “diplomats” and foreign “exchange students”, it’s not a stretch of the imagination to see a first wave attack including highly trained foreign special forces soldiers and foreign “secret agents” planted here for that purpose.
Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of famine and war.
The international spy game is alive and well and every country has it’s own form of CIA, MI6, and KGB (now called the FSB), and it may not be that difficult to plant foreign agents at various levels of government and even within the U.S. military.
My bet is that any scheme for an attack and takeover of the U.S. will include widespread distribution of foreign agents within U.S. borders, which has probably already taken place. And the more years that pass, the more likely these agents can get deeply entrenched into U.S. life, government, and military. Finally, many of these foreign agents may be currently turning real U.S. citizens into “double agents” (by lies, money, or by coercion) who turn on their homeland to support a new government and new rule of law.
Being Prepared for a Missile Strike
6. Duck and cover — and put on protective chemical gear
In the Middle East, Israel has been under a constant state of threat from missile strikes and public bombings courtesy of hate-filled Islamic attackers. Because of this, schools, government, and numerous businesses across Israel and public marketplaces have access to bomb shelters.
Unfortunately, the population at large across the U.S. does not have access to bomb shelters nor have they taken part in any bombing drills.
Supplies for nuclear and chemical emergencies
We can’t simply get under our desks to survive a bombing — this isn’t an earthquake. It’s a missile strike — and that missile may be outfitted with a chemical weapon. We need something better than an earthquake drill in place. Or some of our kids are likely to die from chemical attack. For now, preparation comes down to us. Useful items for wartime include a personal radiation detector for detecting if you’ve been exposed to radiation or if an area has. Recommended elsewhere on the site, are chemical protective masks rated for a nuclear or chemical emergency and potassium iodide pills (which reduce the chances of several types of cancer if taken within a short time of radiation exposure).
When it comes to chemical protective masks, these are standard in places like Israel and we can bet a number of people are well versed on what to do in the event of a sudden attack.
Like Israel, American schools need war drills
Shouldn’t schools and colleges that are located in major cities have some kind of drill in place for a chemical weapon attack? Many of our students are sitting ducks and they’re not going to know what hit them.
Missiles Are Falling From the Sky – What to Do
7. Evacuate to the countryside or take cover in a bomb shelter.
If you have the option, like a lot of people in Israel have today, head immediately for a bomb shelter.
Several cities around the U.S. and U.K. may have a bomb shelter from the Cold War days where city officials could flee to in the event of an impending attack. It’s hard to know which ones are available to the public though — and what their policies are for letting just anyone have access to it.
Even though that bomb shelter may be nearby, it’s possible that in the chaos of the day, you may never actually get inside. What if the bomb shelter had filled to capacity and someone had simply locked the door to anyone else?
A number of people from the prepping community have built bomb shelters, with several being built during the Cold War days.
If a bomb shelter isn’t available, the other option is to high tail it for an open area away (or out to the countryside) and get away from any important buildings, large bridges, or tunnels.
Each of these are possible locations for missile strikes — especially large bridges and tunnel systems. A great way to cause havoc for a few million people who live in places like New York and San Francisco is to immediately take out large bridges and tunnels, effectively trapping hundreds of thousands of people inside an isolated area, and cutting off evacuation routes.
Chemical weapons detonated within an isolated area could wipe out tens of thousands, like a Nazi gas chamber exterminating Jews in World War 2.
Building a Bomb Shelter to Protect from Nuclear Fallout
Building a bomb shelter for surviving a nuclear attack (and chemical weapons) is an option, and it can be done relatively inexpensively. But do you even need to build a bomb shelter? That really depends on your proximity to where a nuke or nukes may strike.
If you feel safe because you live a hundred miles from the nearest major city or military base (possible targets for a nuke), be sure to check the direction of prevailing winds in your region. The wind can carry nuclear fallout and so for the first few days (when nuclear fallout is heaviest) you may not be that safe — not unless you take steps to secure your home from nuclear fallout.
Avoid Stopped Traffic Fleeing From Warzones
8. Have Detailed Road Maps — Because Evacuation May Bring Traffic to a Halt
When it comes to maps, Delorme makes a detailed map for every state. Use one of these maps to locate routes out of any and every city in your state. Also locate distant small towns, state parks, military bases, nature preserves, and little-used roads and highways.
An important point to consider: the majority of the population in your region probably doesn’t realize that numerous alternative routes via county roads and or gravel roads and or forest service roads (which are typically found outside of large cities in the countryside) even exist.
… And you don’t have to wait for a regional war to break out to benefit from a detailed state map. Today, if you face periods of heavy traffic, use one of these maps to find side roads offering easy alternative routes around stopped traffic due to accidents or simply heavy rush hour.
Finally, go out on a weekend with one of these detailed Delorme maps and in your spare time follow some of these alternative routes. You can be familiar with any number of evacuation routes — just in case.
Being able to evacuate can be a life-saving survival tool. Realize that if you live in a major city, and there is a catastrophic event like a nuclear weapon detonated anywhere within a hundred miles, your entire region may be racing to escape on the only roads they know — the interstate freeways and highways.
If you get caught in that mess, don’t expect to get very far.
Another reason for buying a detailed state map? If the grid goes down, there’s a good chance your mobile device will not work for much longer, if at all. So don’t count on the latest GPS saving the day.
You’re going to want a few good maps on hand.
Once you have a good road map like Delorme, from there you’ll need one or more “trail maps” (search for “trail atlas” or “recreation map”) for your specific region that includes topographic features depicting lakes, foothills, mountains, forest, meadows, and more where you can fish and hunt and simply survive — for those who are capable.
Life After Grid Down
9. Prepping for Long Term Survival
The electrical grid goes down. For good. You need a power source. Like portable solar panels. You need food and water and critical emergency supplies … And you need to put serious thought into weapons for hunting and self defense.
You also need a survival plan with a number of specific objectives. You see, once the grid goes down, you may only have weeks … or just days … or just minutes before enemy planes thunder overhead and a terrifying scene from the movie Red Dawn plays out in the sky.
Teens and college students scrambling out of schools, running for their cars and trucks parked outside.
Teachers, administrators and city officials gunned down and local citizens who did not escape penned up in concentration camps with several facing execution at the hands of their captors.
Living without power, cars, electronics or running water may seem like a nightmare scenario but to pioneers it was just the way life was. Having the skills to survive without modern conveniences is not only smart in case SHTF, it’s also great for the environment. Keep in mind that the key to a successful homestead does not only lie on being able to grow your own food but on other skills as well. LEARNING THESE SKILLS WILL take time, patience and perseverance, and not all of these skills are applicable to certain situations. Hopefully, though, you managed to pick up some great ideas that will inspire you and get you started! Just like our forefathers used to do, The Lost Ways Book teaches you how you can survive in the worst-case scenario with the minimum resources available.It comes as a STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE ACCOMPANIED BY PICTURES AND TEACHES YOU HOW TO USE BASIC INGREDIENTS TO MAKE SUPER-FOOD FOR YOUR LOVED ONES.
The Invasion of the U.S. Had Begun
10. Don’t Wait Too Long To Evacuate — Or It May Be Too Late
Did you make it out in time? Did your kids make it out in time?
Not trying to scare anyone here but these are some serious questions to consider — if the U.S. is truly on the brink of a major war that most of the U.S. probably doesn’t expect anytime soon. Maybe it’s time for the U.S. to wake up and realize that we may truly be on the brink of war — a war of Biblical proportions.
It’s also a good time to start praying — even if it’s the first time in your life.
Faith in God is going to be the only way out.
