I think actually the threat is cyber attacks on defense contractors and military-related stuff to steal info. A reaction in the form of counter-strike on the attackers is long overdue, IMO. There could be unintended consequences, of course. But that would be a side effect.

***The first thing you need to do, is make sure you have your essential needs covered. The essentials include water, shelter, food and personal security.***

Personal security, huh? In today’s America I guess that means stock up on slingshots.

Internet, less than 20 years old.

Electricity, most rural areas didn’t have it before the 40’s.

Water, been there since the beginning of time.

Food, livestock, been there done that, raised plenty of either.

Living in a major city or urban area, a guarenteed death sentence through starvation.

“Federal Government prepares to launch Pre-emptive cyber strikes against rogue nations.”

What is the definition of “rogue nations”, anyone who doesn’t agree with the administration.

“10 Disturbing SHTF Threats That Most Preppers Haven’t Prepared For”

I was a National Guards man at Katrina. I was also at the meeting when we put a stop to it! It was the National guard that ended the illegal gun confiscation. It was also on of the key moments in history that brought the 2012 Supreme Court decision of the “Posse Comitatus Act”.

The US Government is full of checks and balances. One of which is the Nation Guard against the Federal Army. That was the moment when “Big Army remembered that they don’t control us. That is why an active duty army infantry from the 3erd IN Div. is on permanent quick reaction force in the US. And they have been used. The guard is made up of your neighbors and peers. They will probably be one of your best allies in a crises, make friends now.

The Guard may be the only Government entity, including the Police, I’ve been around that doesn’t have an us against them attitude, and I’ve been around a lot. We had quite a few people coming up to us saying, thank god you’re here. They felt like they needed help and protection from the local police and fed agencies, and for the greater part they did. Katrina will be remembered in history for a lot more than being a hurricane.

A ChiCom cyberattack which had the effect of shutting down Walmart would hurt them more than us IMO.
