Governments Request “Contingency Planning For Extreme Scenarios Including Rioting And Social Unrest”

Mac Slavo

The writing is on the wall. If you can’t read it, then you’re going to have a problem – very soon. It was in early 2009 that we first warned our readers of the coming wave of riots and social unrest that would envelop the globe. Nearly three years on we’re seeing a progressive increase in tension among those affected by deteriorating economic conditions and the trend towards social unrest seems to be accelerating. Absolutely nothing has been resolved in terms of the economic and financial woes facing the world, despite the literally trillions of dollars of wealth in the form of credit and monetary easing that has been committed to the crisis.

As the economic paradigm shifts and hundreds of millions of citizens from the world’s advanced economies are thrown into poverty (including 100 million from the U.S. alone), the situation is getting critical. So much so that what once existed only in the realm of conspiracy theory and alternative news web sites – that governments, especially in the U.S., are planning for large-scale economic meltdown and social unrest – is now a foregone conclusion in political circles.

Europe, as we discussed in 2009, is now coming unhinged and we have the real possibility of not just a collapse in the sovereign debt of a single nation, but the entire European Union and their beloved currency. This is not just some far-out possibility. The collapse of Europe now seems more likely than ever, and governments and regulatory agencies all over the continent are calling for immediate preparations, planning and strategies to deal with the imminent collapse of sovereign debt of individual countries, European banks, and the Euro monetary system that is the glue holding it all together.

“It’s in our interests that they keep playing for time because that gives us more time to prepare,” the minister told the Daily Telegraph.

Recent Foreign and Commonwealth Office instructions to embassies and consulates request contingency planning for extreme scenarios including rioting and social unrest.

Greece has seen several outbreaks of civil disorder as its government struggles with its huge debts. British officials think similar scenes cannot be ruled out in other nations if the euro collapses.

Diplomats have also been told to prepare to help tens of thousands of British citizens in eurozone countries with the consequences of a financial collapse that would leave them unable to access bank accounts or even withdraw cash.

The EU treaties that created the euro and set its membership rules contain no provision for members to leave, meaning any break-up would be disorderly and potentially chaotic.

If eurozone governments defaulted on their debts, the European banks that hold many of their bonds would risk collapse.

Some analysts say the shock waves of such an event would risk the collapse of the entire financial system, leaving banks unable to return money to retail depositors and destroying companies dependent on bank credit.

The Financial Services Authority this week issued a public warning to British banks to bolster their contingency plans for the break-up of the single currency.

Some economists believe that at worst, the outright collapse of the euro could reduce GDP in its member-states by up to half and trigger mass unemployment.

“When the unemployment consequences are factored in, it is virtually impossible to consider a break-up scenario without some serious social consequences,” UBS said.

Underestimate this events at your peril. Similar events played out in Europe in the early 1930′s, and we experienced a decade’s long depression here in the United States, followed by five years of world war – and that’s when we were a creditor nation without hundreds of trillions in debt and liabilities.

The collapse of Europe, as we have argued for several years, is imminent. If it so happens that Europe does collapse as we forecast, and capital flees to the safety of the US dollar (thus boosting the dollar’s strength and causing a stock market meltdown) than we urge readers to consider the repercussions that will be felt in America. Within a period of a few months to a few years a similar scenario will play out with our own sovereign debt and currency. And, when the world’s reserve currency goes into meltdown mode, all bets are off.

There’s a reason governments the world over are preparing contingency plans. They know it’s coming, and they know it will be pandemonium. There is, as we noted two years ago, No Way to Avoid Financial Armageddon.

Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst -

* Collapse of purchasing power due to hyperinflation

* Interruptions to the normal flow of commerce

* Disruptions to food supplies

* Political upheaval

* Increased violence

* Riots

* The militarization of Main Street

* And the potential for failure of our domestic utility grid.

We realize these are extreme potentialities and many might suggest we take off the tin foil hat, but the same was true when we and others forecast a collapse of Europe, civil unrest and government contingency planning three years ago. That has now been actualized.

The next leg of this crisis will take hold in the United States in due time. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Start thinking about money during a collapse, bartering items, post-collapse trade skills, and creating a solid preparedness foundation.

FROM NOV 2010
http://www.shtfplan.com/marc-faber/pentagon-military-actively-war-gaming-large-scale-economic-breakdown-and-civil-unrest_11222010

The Army, in a year-long war games series called Unified Quest 2011, is looking at a variety of possibilities and how to deal with them, including:
the implications of “large scale economic breakdown” inside of the United States
how to maintain “domestic order amid civil unrest”
and ways to deal with fragmented global power and drastically lower budgets
Clearly, the U.S. government is making contingency plans to deal with a worst-case, all-out-collapse scenario of not only the economy, but our social and political systems.

The war gaming, according to reports, began in 2008 at the onset of the economic crisis, but planners from not just the United States, but around the globe, may have been aware of the dire possibility of economic collapse even earlier. It’s well known that the U.S. government as well as foreign counterparts have been preparing bunkers and continuity of government for decades, but recent preparedness activities suggest that the planning in some aspects has been expedited. Anecdotal evidence indicates that the US government has been the leading buyer of freeze died foods for the last couple of years, and private emergency shelter contractors have reported a shortage in equipment and supplies for building personal-sized bunkers.

In a previous report titled Homeland Security To ‘Regionalize’ Emergency Supplies Over Next 90 Days, we pointed out that FEMA, headed by Department of Homeland Security, is decentralizing emergency supplies from one main distribution facility in Washington D.C. to fifteen regional facilities around the country. Even the Russians and the EU are in high gear. Russia has reportedly begun planning and development of 5,000 new underground bunkers for the city of Moscow scheduled for completion no later than 2012. The EU, in 2006, commissioned the building of a “Doomsday Seed Vault” in a mountainside several hundred feet above sea level. The facility was built and fully stocked with millions of seeds from around the world within 18 months....”

* Collapse of purchasing power due to hyperinflation

This statement blows the entire credibility of the article. If we have a total collapse the ultimate effect will be not inflation, but deflation.

Senators Demand the Military Lock Up American Citizens in a “Battlefield” They Define as Being Right Outside Your Window

While nearly all Americans head to family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Senate is gearing up for a vote on Monday or Tuesday that goes to the very heart of who we are as Americans. The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.

Senators need to hear from you, on whether you think your front yard is part of a “battlefield” and if any president can send the military anywhere in the world to imprison civilians without charge or trial.

The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. Even Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) raised his concerns about the NDAA detention provisions during last night’s Republican debate. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.

The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday. The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing.

In Harry S. Dent's book The Great Depression Ahead, one of his great concerns was that the 2010's could be a perfect repeat of the 1930's: economic depression, increased political extremism and a real threat of a general world war.

Interestingly enough, I think the USA would be one of the countries that could actually come out ahead. There's one good reason for this: if necessary, we could tap into the gigantic mountain of resources to keep the country going. Economic self-sufficiency, as economic doomsayer Gerald Celente noted, will be the order of the day. It should be noted that the USA can use NAFTA connections with Canada and Mexico to get access to the following strategic products:

Petroleum products

Crude oil (onshore, offshore, oil tar sands and oil shale)
Natural gas (onshore and offshore)

Coal

Mines in USA, Canada and Mexico

Minerals

Almost all the major industrial metals, plus rare earths and actinides (uranium and thorium)

Agricultural products

Almost all the major agricultural crops, including tropical agricultural products grown in southern Mexico

Renewable energy

Wind power from the upper US Midwest and in Alberta province in Canada
Solar power from the US Southwest and most of northern Mexico
Tidal power from off the coasts of Canada, USA and Mexico

In short, under the right political environment, North America could end up being the big winner in the long run.

According to the link below, 4 to 8 weeks. You need water though. That is more important then food. And apparently the fatter you are, the longer you can survive without food. Although I certainly would not want to be around a fat starving person.

You made a small typo.

You should have written “......WHEN he wins.”

It’s ok.....I make typos all the time. :)

In Heinlein's formula, the Fakers and Takers now significantly outnumber the Makers. The only ways for things to improve are to either turn more Fakers and Takers into legitimate Makers, or for unforeseen events to kill off the surplus population of Fakers and Takers.

Which way does history tell us is more likely to happen?

Weimar German and Zimbabwe come to mind as countries that underwent economic collapse and hyperinflation.

Lots of crappy countries have 'resources' - that's NOT what will save us.

Japan's been an economic powerhouse for decades - one of the world's largest economies - and they don't have ONE natural resource. Not iron, gold, oil, natural gas - nothing. Japan sits on a barren rock. It's NOT resources that count - it's the ideas behind a culture. If our ideas turn more 'left' we'll fail - - if 'right' we'll make it.

Don't fall for that old Marxist claptrap about 'resources'... it's a fool's game.

Well, yes. BUT this is not “just” the U.S. it is a global collapse. (Europe is far far worse than the U.S.)

And the Derivatives debacle is even bigger than that of the Commodities market.

How large do you think that “bubble” is?

Now what outcome do you expect?

Great...then there will be all sorts of military weapons and ammo just waiting to be picked up off the ground after they make the mistake of tangling with the real military and veterans. Want an M240B? Your chance is coming...

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
