The title is salacious – I know. Why aren’t more people calling this what it is?!?! foreign embassies are the land of sovereign nations – this is a basic tenet of international law. PLAIN AND SIMPLE – THE UNITED STATES WAS ATTACKED TWICE THESE PAST FEW DAYS! ONCE IN EGYPT AND AGAIN IN LIBYA. My heart goes out the families of those Americans serving overseas who died.
Now, any history student can tell you that the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria is what caused WWI. How hard is it to imagine the storming of US Embassies and the murder of a US diplomat could cause WWIII? This is already a screwed up area of the world and these sort of “sparks” can ignite the world into a blaze of war. Israel is clearly itching to bomb Iran – the Islamic world couldn’t hate the US anymore than they already do – China and Russia seem to be supporting our enemies (Iran and North Korea) and the world police (the US) could be pulled into full a blown WORLD WAR.
From a prepping stand point this doesn’t change much but it should give you the incentive to step up your preps. World war which will inevitably involve some middle east country or countries will spike oil prices, spook the markets and cause massive panic. We will very likely not see attacks on US soil as the fight will happen overseas but that does not mean that mean we will not feel the effects at home. Our country is divided politcally and socially like never before and our economy is in a very fragile state. Anything serious could tip the balance and cause a knee-jerk reaction that results in a depression or worse.
It was said that today’s headlines are a terrible reminder how violent the world is. Remember that statement. Protect yourself and your family.
We could all wake up ANY morning and find that Isreal has bombed alleged nuclear facilities in Iran - a terrorist cell (backed by a shadow foreign nation) has sucessfully attacked the US or China has attacked someone over disputed territories or North Korea hit South Korea with another artillary strike.
PREP NOW and PREP HARD – You may be running out of time!
