department of homeland security is telling us to start prepping right now. Their saying that we should stick up on supplies that would last for 6 months. The reason for this is because our power grid is a prime target for terrorist organizations. The article that I got for this, for some reason, decided to change "says dhs" to "says council" which is relevant.


[Link of article will be in description cause my fuckin phone is being retarded and wont let me paste the fuckin link which is pissing me off rn]

I read a similar article a couple days ago. It might have been the same article. Here it is: https://defconwarningsystem.com/2018/12 ... rld-order/

I can't tell you how many times we blow the trumpet, telling people to get ready for disaster. But time and again, people wait until it is right in their face and then it is too late. The store shelves are empty, and people are fighting over scraps.

/sigh

The same website put this article out 11 days before the one linked by the OP:

I remember seeing that article also, but due to homeland security telling people to stack up on supplies could mean were at a serious situation right now. President gotten word about this, but hasn't reached out to the public about this yet
(In my opinion there probably trying to give Donald Trump a statement that's sugar coated so panic wouldnt break out so suddenly because if he were to tell people to stockpile on supplies, panic would go through the cities).

I've talked to a lot of people about the advantages of maintaining even a minimum stockpile of supplies if for nothing more than severe weather and/or power outages. In my experience, a burning bush could appear telling people to stock up on supplies, and a large number of people would still choose to ignore it.

I understand human psychology *after* a disaster has occurred, and I'm trained to deal with that. But the psychology of "it can't happen to me" still baffles me. Perhaps preparing for a disaster in advance makes the prospect too real for some people.

There’s the default mindset of Americans today who for the most part even their parents have never seen cataclysmic event happen in last 60 years.

Let alone have no historic memory of a larg scale event happen and there not be the government or aid groups come in with help relativity quickly.
We’re americans we can always find away to rebuild and help other regions. When power infrastructure is damaged in one area linemen are transfered in to help from all over the country.
This is unknown in much of the world and definitely in history. Life in america and lot of the west is an anomaly in history.
Eventually at some point in time this type of response and support will not be there.

I don't think this thread belongs in the Terrorism category but I will chime in. I think it is good to have a minimum amount of preparations, but the dynamics involved in a true crisis would steer me away from stockpiling huge amounts of goods. My property (Where I live) includes a water source (pond) with fish, and adequate space to grow plenty of food. The problem is the adjacent population would most likely rob, lute, take, burn or use anything I have stockpiled. Even if a person has weapons as a deterrence, most people could not defend against a massive amount of people. Therefore my prepping is based on being mobile. I have a long term back pack crammed with everything from handheld radios to food and shelter, to a short term hunting backpack with shorter range radios and short term supplies. I have a tri-band programmable hand held, that I can use to communicate with all my radios in both backpacks if I need to give the smaller backpack to friends or family members.
