Ho Hum    same stuff different day :munch:

Not really, China making islands and destabilizing the area isn't same stuff.

Russia ringing  alarm sirens and mobilizing their army isnt same stuff.

At least 3 modern countries telling their citizens to stockpile food and water for a week or more isn't same stuff.

You could probably do go back in increments of 10 years and find just as worse, if not far worse stuff than this. 

True but the only problem is if one goes they all go. its very similar in my mind to WWI with all of the maneuvering and peace/protection agreements that set off the powder keg.  except this time

US- Nukes

Russia- Nukes

China-Nukes

N Korea- Nukes

S. Korea- Nukes

Iran- Nukes (most likely already have them being so friendly with Russia)

Israel- Nukes

Uk- Nukes (nato)

France- Nukes (Nato)

 

Everyone involved save Japan, The Phillipines, and Ukraine has nukes. Im not saying WW3 is going down, but the posibility of it is pretty substantial at the moment. We are either going to

A. Let a sovereign nation be overwhelmed by Russia's military as they rebuild the Soviet Union. (Remember they tried to do the same to Georgia not too long ago. 

B. Intervene and stop them either directly or indirectly supplying them with weapons. 

 

either way presents major problems.

WWII taught us you can't let nations go unchecked conquering their neighbors. 

WWI taught us the danger of all these protection agreements.

If it all fell apart could you survive?

 

Do you have land? Do you have food? Can you hunt? Can you purify water?

ya I'm sitting on quite a few acres, i grew a pretty successful garden this year, we have pecan trees, grapes, figs, and muscadines, and a small pond here. I love to hunt. This house used to be connected to a well that still works, so with a little tweaking i could probably get it going again in an emergency.

I've actually have grown interested in prepping too honestly.

Not storing stuff, but becoming more used to living off the land.
