“And if this proves to be the case, then preppers will be forcibly overcome. Their bunkers will not survive the fire-power used against them.”
Possibly true, but I ask that you consider The Case Of The Finnish Sniper”. One man, with only a bolt action rifle, killed over 500 Russian soldiers. He did this in winter, when tracking him was far easier than tracking in most of America, most of the time.
As a sniper, he didn’t shoot from a known bunker, he kept moving.
Coming from both an American and a Jewish background, I am aware of the possibilities. I am also not going to become a bar of soap without a fight.
Those unwilling to fight will be killed in unspeakable fashions.
Took me a minute to process that. Oy.
Bless you. Fight well.
Guns and ammo check.
Gold, silver and bartering supplies check.
Most of those who have taken steps to prepare for a post-collapse America have acquired the basic essential goods and trading supplies that will be needed in the event of worst-case economic, financial or societal collapse.
Weve created bug-out, bug-in, and self defense plans that we hope will be sufficient enough to give us the edge against potential thieves, looters and criminals who will undoubtedly be coming for our supplies when resources in the general population begin to run dry.
Stocked with the latest in SHTF weaponary and ammunition, the overwhelming majority of us believe that well be able to neutralize any threat that may present itself.
Never underestimate the imagination of someone who has been soundly refuted.
Your sentiments are perfectly reasonable, and I for one find no fault with them.
However,the constant subject of the article under discussion is the advent of something on the order of an apocalyse rather than a hurricane, a house fire as one poster sarcastically alluded to, or perhaps a war fought in another country.
With a hurricane for instance, one may reasonably expect to recover since the rest of the nation is intact and able to send help. But an apocalypse speaks of wholesale devastation with no expectation of help from a neighboring state.
It is on the basis of an apocalyptic scenario that my observations rest.
Good on you, bro. It's a shame that so many of your genetic cousins here in America seem unable to grasp the notion. I daresay that those who managed to make it out of Europe ahead of the indigenous soapmakers don't have that blindness. Especially those concentrated at the east end of the Mediterranean. THEY "get it".
What's your game plan? Any insights the rest of us might have missed? (You're right about the Finnish Sniper... in an 'end of the world' situation, we wouldn't even have the advantage the fins had - they had police protection...)
