    Nope, this war will be much different, in part because we are so spoiled. What will happen to the U.S. economy if Russia and China simply shut down the internet? Banks won't be able to talk with each other or transfer funds, peoples' bills will not be paid and utilities and mortgage companies will not even know if they have been paid. If, as I suspect, the Russians are preparing to take down a significant number of satellites, everything based on GPS such as weaponry, surveillance, air travel, and your little navigators on your phones, as well as the phones themselves will become unusable. Even the Teslas and other electric cars won't run, as they require GPS to function. The West has now seized more Russian assets to finance the Ukraine war and Third World countries and others are pulling their gold and other assets out of the Western economic system to protect them from seizure.

    I don't think Russia will even need nuclear weapons, but they have many more than we do in any case.

    I have noticed my laptop is having problems lately. Whatever any of them do including our own tyrants, nothing we can do about it.
    Sad,huh?

    Maybe I should take my horse back?
    I keep thinking I am prepped to the hilt but there is always something. Like during covid I needed a couple things for my first aid kit. I keep prepping because of news about land and water confiscation in other states. Wisconsin has its own oddities.

    I may have ported elsewhere about watching the video of how the Institute for the Study of War thinks the invasion of Taiwan will take place. They are fighting WWII. They made no allowance for drones. They showed amphibious landings and how Chinese troops will move northward form their landings in the south of the island. What about the Chinese balloons? Not even mentioned or considered. Even missiles fired from the mainland were not considered.

    Prep by accumulating whatever you need for daily life @Mary Stetler. That way, if nothing happens, you won't have to go to the store anyway.:) Food inflation was listed at over 40% since Biden took office. Energy is rising rapidly, although he has kept that rate lower by draining the petroleum reserve. It can't hurt if you are buying stuff that is rising in price.

    Yeah, I see something like an updated Red Dawn scenario or something like the aftermath survivors lived in during the movie The Postman.



    Or maybe the world of the series Jeremiah.

    I am beginning to believe that the Elites and the ultra wealthy who are building bunkers are not doing so to avoid radiation, but to avoid the civil unrest that appears to be on the horizon. They want to protect themselves from US.

    More worrisome to me is the example presented in the movie The Road with Viggo Morgensern.

    I've only watched that once. The Road is just so gut-wrenching.
