Skip to comments.Beware Of Highly-Trained Armed Parasites In A SHTF Situation
Posted on 02/10/2012 12:57:37 PM PST by Kartographer
This morning, I want to talk about these armed parasites. Some time ago I picked up the book Urban Survival Guide by David Morris. On page 86 of the text, which is really a comprehensive twelve-week urban survival course, Morris wrote:
many peoples survival plan consists of buying just enough ammo to take whatever food they need by force. Just two weeks before writing this, I stood in a circle with eight active duty military talking about how quickly things were crumbling. When the conversation moved to preparations, I found myself listening to them mock families who stockpile food and detail their plans on how to liberate it if they ever need to.
Some of the comments were, If theyre dumb enough to buy food instead of guns, they dont deserve to live. and When it comes down to it, my family is more important than their family and Ill take what I need. and I dont have room to store a year of food, but I do have room for another case of .223.

“I have very little training or knowledge”
Barnes and Noble, military history section. Virtually all of thsoe books will give you insight into military tactics.
Had all this back in '68 , I've studied the maps around this place and it isn't a good defensible position
As far as the books and TV ,Thats just someone else s opinion ,you can read all you want but until you've lived that life style you haven't lived or learned
Keep reading. Good defensive positions are created, not found.
You couldn’t “train” a starving coyote to snif a bloody rump roast.
Sooner or later, the moderator is going to get on your behvioral problem - again, you’re way out of line - and a REAL brave typist.
The double post was my error - that is NOT an *gasp* “apology.
Thanks - nothing wrong with clerks in uniform - they, like everybody else should take great pride in their work. Peace to you!
Urban has pros and cons defensively speaking, depending a lot on the size and cohesion of your group. Hard to have a long clear defensive space. Suburbs are a little better.
For now, I am holding with the theory that it is best to develop one’s relationships with the neighbors, in an urban or suburban situation.
Or a secondary nearby network if the immediate neighbors don’t pan out.
Preparing to be able to go to the swamps you know may not be a bad plan if family obligations do not preclude it or prevent taking them with you.
Having a route picked and supplied can’t hurt if it is not used. As well as some good talks with old connections down that way. Everyone has some gifts they can offer to the situation, and can be a welcome asset to wherever they find they need to be.
That said, the biblical advice goes along these lines:
Do not forsake your friend or a friend of your family, and do not go to your relatives house when disaster strikes you better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away.
One of the things I’ve been thinking about regarding preparations is that you really need a village to survive. A small family won’t survive alone in a hostile environment. You may get through a few days or weeks, but it won’t be easy.
You’re going to need a doctor and mechanics, people who can sew and cook. You need folks to care for children and grow food. ...and you will need people to defend what you have.
It things really go to hell, you need to have a group of people with a rally point. People who will be committed to surviving together, maximizing their strengths and working to a common goal.
