Editor’s Note: The following commentary comes to us from Selco of SHTF School, one of the preparedness community’s most well known authors – and for good reason. Selco survived the Balkan war of the 1990’s and described his experiences in his online course One Year In Hell.

He has seen the worst that humanity has to offer and once again shares his thoughts on living in a world that has completely fallen apart. 

If you want a first person perspective on what collapse looks like then keep reading.

It looks like there is no sense and order in what ISIS folks are doing while they are terrorizing people and burning them alive, stone them to death, kill captured soldiers or simply women and kids. But spreading terror and pure fear makes lot of sense in terms of strategy, especially in already „chaotic“ times and territories where they are trying to advance.

Terror is a psychological game.

The “they are coming for me feeling”

I have experienced for myself, more than once the feeling that „they are coming for me“. It is that moment when you are armed and ready, together with more folks, who are armed too and we are all waiting for attack.

And guys who are attacking are famous for the fact that they do not take prisoners, or that they have few sick guys who are collecting ears from the captured people, while they are still alive.

No matter how well you are armed and prepared and ready to fight, if you hear about their atrocities for weeks and then one evening you are forced to fight with them it will have impact on you.

You will face stress of battle but also have to deal with your own fear.

Of course different people react in different ways, so some guys will break down or give up even before fight, without single bullet flying through the air.

Some guys will even surrender without fight and beg for mercy, even they listened stories about „no prisoners“ for weeks. Often they are the people who can not imagine how truly evil people act. They think because they would not kill and torture other people they do not know nobody would. It makes no sense, but it is what terror does and why it works. It makes people act without sense, makes them do stupid things, to be confused and not logical.

Terror is advanced level of trash talk in sports where one opponent tries to make the other one angry that he loses focus. When it comes to terror it is just fear that is used as weapon.

I have seen that sometimes only rumor about some infamous unit coming to attack is enough that groups who are very well organised simply fall apart.

If you hear that there is unit coming and they will torture and kill everyone in their way including your kids and woman, you have two choices: To fight to the last or run.

In the movies folks will fight to the last, but in reality most of the folks will simply run. The difference is like walking on edge of the sidewalk or walking on edge of a high building. In both cases you walk on edge but only in one case a wrong step has much worse consequences.

Few times I asked myself why ISIS has so much success over there in Iraq and Syria. One of the answers is terror. Nothing spreads so fast like terror.

I also think the idea you can have ultimate power over life and death of people makes many people want to join them. People get high on power and that they can decide who lives or dies. If this happens in group you usually find people trying to be more brutal than other people in their group. To be the most respected a feared one.

You finally can rule over people, to judge, it does not have anything to do with religion, it is in human nature of some folks.

Few months ago I read some US weapon forum and one of the members shows his rifle and said how he bought it cheaply and how it was probably used in Balkan war.

On the rifle butt there was still small engraved sign of the unit visible. And strangely I knew that unit.
Unit was famous in war because they (like many others) did lots of bad things, rape, kill prisoners and similar things like private prisons etc.

But at the end most of them ended up dead, killed like the people they killed.

Once when people realize that bullets can kill you no matter how famous or infamous you are it all gets easier.

People dealt with them, and today they are just something like weird war memory with a sign on someones rifle butt. This is a lesson you need to keep in mind in situations when you face enemies that cause fear and terror in you.

First you need to accept your fear and terror. Some people do not accept it and try to pretend its not there until it breaks out and makes them unable to function. Often in situations when it matters most.

Be aware of your fear and terror but also confident in your abilities to face this enemy. This is attitude that you need to show openly also to all members of your group. In groups emotions always get amplified.

Just like walking on edge of high building you focus on the task at hand, the walking or fighting and forget about consequences for that moment.

Terror needs to be dealt with brute force, before it spreads way too much to be contained. It is like disease.
You can get sick from terror, just like from pneumonia for example. Symptoms are fear,panic, doing illogical things, or having urge to run away before even you realize who is your enemy and how you can defeat it.

This is why we prepare, practice and learn to focus on what matters to achieve our goals. Terror only works if you give it power.

What do you make of ISIS and their actions? Please share your thoughts on this and how you try to deal with terror in community forum or comments below.

          Sometimes even Obama does the right thing.

          Obama Plays Hardball with Israel?
          By Mark H. Gaffney

          Finally. After many years of official hypocrisy, a US president appears to be playing hardball with Israel. The other day, the US government declassified a 1987 report documenting Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program.

          courthousenews.com/2015/02/12/nuc%20report.pdf

          I have been a critic of President Obama, but one has to admire the timing of the release which I suspect was ordered by the White House. Next month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to speak before Congress, at the behest of House speaker Boehner, and the topic of Netanyahu’s address reportedly will be Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons program. The fact that neither Speaker Boehner nor the Israeli government first cleared the speech with the White House has become controversial, and for good reason. Several prominent members of Congress, among them Senator Leahy, have already indicated they will boycott the speech, which will be a transparent attempt at an end run around the president.

          Israeli PM Netanyahu is a smooth talker, but he is in no position to lecture Iran or any other state about nuclear weapons. The just-declassified report shows up Netanyahu for what he is, a liar.

          All sixteen US intelligence agencies agree there is no hard evidence that Iran is attempting to develop nuclear weapons. As a signatory of the nuclear non proliferation treaty, Iran’s nuclear power program is fully safeguarded by IAEA inspections. Israel by contrast is a rogue state that secretly developed nukes while thumbing its nose at the world. Israel has long refused to sign the NPT.

          The declassified 1987 report indicates that from the 1980s on the US was well-informed about Israel’s hidden nuclear agenda. Israel’s nuke program is evidently a carbon copy of the US program.

          We know that Israel smuggled nuclear technology (triggers, known as krytrons) out of the US, highjacked a ship on the high seas loaded with uranium ore, deceived US inspectors, and much more, all the while lying about its true intentions.

          It also appears that Israel provided the IAEA with phony documents about Iran’s nuclear program.
          http://www.iranreview.org/content/Documents/Israel-Provided-IAEA-with-Fake-Documents-on-Iran-s-Nuclear-Program.htm

          Timing is everything in politics. With the report now public, Obama will be in a stronger position to apply pressure on Israel to sign the NPT and open its nuclear sites to IAEA inspectors; or face the prospect of losing US economic and military aid. Why? Because a US law (the Symington amendment of the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act) bars the US from giving aid to nations that engage in clandestine nuclear weapons proliferation. For many years, the US chose to ignore the law. But now that Netanyahu plainly intends to stir up trouble for Obama in Congress over Iran, the president has apparently decided to take off the kid gloves. If Obama follows through, and I hope he does, it will the smartest policy move of his presidency. The president deserves all the support that we the people can give him on this issue.

          The timing of the 1987 report was no coincidence either. No doubt it was occasioned by a three-page expose that appeared in the London Sunday Times in 1986, based on evidence provided by an Israeli whistleblower named Mordechai Vanunu. The stunning Times expose featured inside photos and details about Israel’s top-secret plutonium separation plant buried 80 feet below the Negev desert. For years, Israel had claimed that its Dimona nuclear plant was peacefully generating electricity. But Vanunu showed this was a deception.

          For his courage Vanunu suffered a fate worse than death. Kidnapped by Israeli agents, he was taken back to Israel in chains and convicted of treason in a kangaroo court. The man of conscience spent 18 years in Ashkelon prison, 11 of them in solitary confinement, during which time he endured terrible abuse by his Israeli handlers. Though Vanunu was released in 2004, he remains under house arrest in Israel to this day; a shocking example of double jeopardy.

          I want to personally thank Mordechai Vanunu for the incredible courage he has shown over many years, which now finally appears on the verge of bearing positive fruit. Never doubt that one brave man can change the world. Vanunu did. He will be remembered for his strength in the service of truth, while Netanyahu may well become notorious as the dissembler who destroyed Israel’s credibility.

                The world’s people are sick and tired of the lies, deceit, false flags, racism, genocide and theft by IsraHell and its supporters….did I mention the constant redirection of the TRUTH and whining? The so-called “Jews” ARE NOT Semite nor of the seed of Abraham (not that ridiculous stories count) and the Holo-hoax has been scientifically proven to have been IMPOSSIBLE! So, these filth lied about their right to reside in the home of Palestinians (who are Semite), lied about the 6 MILLION, hid the fact that THEY are the filth behind Communism, the Bolshevik Revolution and organized crime, aka, Mafia! Hitler DID NOT commence the War…the Jews did and the Zionists were in bed with Hitler and sacrificed orthodox “Jews” to better argue for a homeland. It’s NO COINCIDENCE the “Jews” have been run out of more than 100 locales, it;s their filthy, aberrant behavior and NOT a conspiracy of “anti-Semitism”! There’s a very clear “cause and effect” at work and Israel is the TERROR STATE of the world and needs to be wiped from the planet! You love these filth so much? Go live in Israel and take part in the world’s “FINAL SOLUTION” you pig!

              Please Swinging:

              Go back through your KJV Bible. Look up all the blessings God promised ‘Israel’ and then convince yourself He promised ALL those blessings to the people/land called Israel today.

              You know He does not/cannot lie, Swinging. So are all those promises made to Israel yet to happen to that little piece of real estate or have they already happened to the country you live in?

                Pissed Off Granny,

                You make an interesting point however certain references in the KJV do refer to the terrain and placement of Israel. Who knows for certain, but there is no doubt that the whole world is in turmoil and our country is being desecrated by those in charge, who are at the beckon call of the devil, of this I am certain.

                Zechariah Chapter 14
                1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

                2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

                3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

                4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which [is] before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, [and there shall be] a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

                5 And ye shall flee [to] the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, [and] all the saints with thee.

                6 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the light shall not be clear, [nor] dark:

                7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, [that] at evening time it shall be light.

                8 And it shall be in that day, [that] living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

                9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

                10 All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and [from] the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses.

                11 And [men] shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

                12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

                  The Bible says the Mosaic Covenant/Law has been REPLACED, “MADE VOID,” “BLOTTED OUT,” “SET ASIDE,” “TAKEN AWAY,” “ANNULLED/CANCELED.”

                  Hebrews 7:18
                  Hebrews 10:9

                  You missed one….

                  For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

                  Matt. 5:18

                  Unless I’m mistaken, heaven and earth have not passed away.

                  The Law is a reflection of the character of God. It is unchanging.

                • anonymous2 says:

                  Here’s another one.

                  Luke 16:17 However, it is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for one stroke of a letter in the Law to be dropped.

                • John Q. Public says:

                  @ anonymous2

                  To pretend that the Mosaic Law was not replaced would make God a fool. If the Mosaic Law could save, if Mosaic Law could open the gates of Heaven, there would have been no reason for the Incarnation, Ministry, Passion, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. There would have been no need for the New Covenant. All Jesus’ suffering would be unnecessary, meaningless, a complete waste—and that is NOT the case.

                  Try to understand the time line.

                  WHEN HE WAS ALIVE:

                  After describing the Beatitudes on the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said “So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For amen I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot, or one tittle shall not pass of the law, till all be fulfilled. He therefore that shall break one of these least commandments, and shall so teach men, shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven. But he that shall do and teach, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, that unless your justice abound more than that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:16

                  AS HE DIED:

                  “Jesus therefore, when he had taken the vinegar, said: It is consummated. And bowing his head, he gave up the ghost.”

                  AFTER HE DIED:

                  “REPLACED,” “MADE VOID,” “BLOTTED OUT,” “SET ASIDE,” “TAKEN AWAY,” “ANNULLED/CANCELED.”

                  Hebrews 7:18
                  Hebrews 10:9
                  Colossians 2:14
                  Jeremias 31:31-32

                  Indeed, the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes remain and will remain until the End of the World, but the moment that Jesus on His Cross fulfilled all the figures and prophecies; and perfected all that was imperfect, the Temple veil was torn and the imperfect Mosaic law and the manmade traditions of the Pharisees were “REPLACED,” “MADE VOID,” “BLOTTED OUT,” “SET ASIDE,” “TAKEN AWAY,” “ANNULLED/CANCELED.”

                I don’t know much about the Bible, because no matter how many times I read it, I can never fully understand it all. I think Jesus spoke in parables for a reason, to allow us freedom of choice based on our interpretations. The problem is, we get into violent, divisive arguments over something that was NEVER really meant to be clear to start with.

                But I do know ONE THING for sure.

                I can state unequivocally that at the heart of EVERY EVIL perpetrated in this world, there is but ONE ROOT CAUSE:

                A LACK OF RESPECT FOR THE LIFE OF OTHER THINGS.

                I defy anyone to name one evil act that would still happen, if a respect for life had been recognized and observed. Name any evil you like:

                Murder.
                Slavery.
                War.
                Torture.
                Oppression.
                Crime.
                Genocide.
                Democide.
                Eugenics.
                Corruption.
                Greed.
                Hatred.
                Jealousy.
                Animal abuse.
                Abuse of our planet…

                The list is long, and yet in every case, it couldn’t have happened, had there been respect for the life of the human, the animal or the earth, by the perpetrator.

                Religion is being used as an efficient tool to divide us. We’re spending way too much time quoting and arguing over bible texts that have never been universally clear.

                SEMANTICS rule the day in these arguments and ‘semantics’ are just another method of lying, a way of rewording something to make it sound more palatable. Deception. A LIE.

                I can have faith in My Personal God, without quibbling over the meanings of bible verses. I don’t need to turn to God to understand the need to have respect for life….ALL LIFE, AT ALL TIMES. God lets me answer my own questions.

                We can see how this application works out in real time, in EVERY confrontational situation.

                NOT ONLY HAVE WE BECOME A BUNCH OF MONKEYS WHO SHIT IN THEIR OWN BEDS, BUT WE THEN HAVE TO ARGUE OVER WHO SHAT, WHY THEY SHITTED AND WHAT THE MEANING OF ‘SHIT’ REALLY IS. Then we have to argue about whose job it is to clean it up and who should pay for it. Nobody ever wants to take responsibility for their own shit.

                For fuck’s sake people, THINK for a minute. PLEASE.

                  If Jesus intended for people to have mutually exclusive doctrines and that holding opposite dogmas and subjective morality still saved, why would He emphasize the fewness of the saved, the “narrow gate”?

                  Why would He spend so much time telling the Pharisees that voiding the commandments of God with their man-made opinions would send them to Hell?

          I agree: the Japanese in WWII fought a formidable war against the allies, island by island. The Japanese only rarely were captured alive and most fought to the death. They were fanatical in their devotion to the Emperor. ISIS can compare to them as an enemy. Fanatical, embracing death where we embrace life, batsh#t crazy, willing to do any number of atrocities, and showing no mercy or decency to the enemy.

          When you face a foe such as this, you must completely obliterate them from the face of earth. Trying to find them jobs at McDonalds just will not do (the government’s proposal the other day).

          We are still many; they are still few. We still have the numbers advantage. We need to use that. All animals fear one thing the most: fire. And fire is a very effective way to destroy and breakdown a brutal enemy such as ISIS. Just as was done in WWII, where flamethrowers were used to ‘cook-out’ Japanese soldiers from their hiding places, we need to start firebombing ISIS. The image of them seeing their fellow fighters running around on fire will be harrowing and demoralizing. The most cost-effective weapon to start would be napalm. For closer fighting, use the flamethrowers.

          The Main Reason We have Terrorism to day is because Ronald Reagan paid off the Iranian Terrorist to release the 52 US Hostages. The Day Reagan was inaugurated in Jan 1981, Reagan release back to Iran like $5 Billion in Frozen Iranian assets here in the US. Thus the Hostages were released and that was the Birth of Terrorism today as we know Terrorism, and that told the world America will pay off handsomely if they attack us.

          Non-interventionism is the best policy, I agree.

          I also agree with your skepticism about these terrorists really wanting to hurt the U.S. so bad. I’m supposed to believe that thousands of dedicated jihadists with plenty of weapons and funding can’t manage to attack the U.S. directly.

          As a thought exercise play enemy commander. I give you 10 committed jihadists and $1 million; how much damage could you do to the U.S.?

          Seriously imagine how easy it is to have a two man team with an rpg shoot a commercial airliner 100ft after takeoff. Have you ever looked at how many US airports this is relatively simple? Shoot two down and imagine the impact on the economy.

          Or just send a 4 man team with AKs into the mall, shoot everyone for 3 minutes or so, then maybe leave and repeat. Or how about shooting up a few walmarts instead?

          Really get everyone’s attention by killing everyone at a few daycare centers. How many people stop going to work if they’re worried their kid will be killed tomorrow at school?

          Look at how much chaos the DC snipers caused for so little money and training.

          You really expect me to believe that all those ISIS terrorists can’t manage any kind of an attack on the US? Not a single one can pretend to be a US grad student and just fly here? Didn’t many recruits leave European countries to go to the middle east and fight? Yet not one of them can commit even simple arson in Europe or the US?

          There are just too many ways that I could cause huge economic harm and destruction if I had even a small fraction of ISIS at my disposal. I don’t believe the government’s story here at all.

            Very good points: it also begs the question: who is really running ISIS? They are clearly fanatical and willing to die for their cause. Yet, they seem to lack the will and intelligence to carry out any attacks in the US. That does not compute. As you point out, the mayhem they could do with just a little bit of investment and a strong will to do what it takes, is immense. So why don’t they do it if they hate the West so much? When you think about it, it does not make any sense. The British have openly admitted they let terrorists board flights and travel back and forth to the war zones. We are less dealing with a classic terrorist threat and more with a group of individuals being ‘run’ by various secret agencies for various geopolitical ends.

        • The Old Coach says:

          Musloids have been invading and terrorizing everybody around them since A.D. 632. That’s over 1149 years before there even WAS a United States.

            “On September 30, 1985 four Soviet diplomats were kidnapped and Arkady Katkov was shot in the head by Hezbollah’s head of security, Imad Mughniyeh. The Soviets gave the kidnappers 48 hours to return the hostages and dispatched some guys they call Spetsgruppa A (Alfa Group). The kidnappers and their relatives were identified by supporting KGB operatives working with the Druze militia, and some of the relatives were taken hostage.

            Following the standard policy of ‘no negotiation’, Alfa proceeded to sever some of their hostages’ body parts and sent them to the perpetrators with a warning that more would follow if the Russian hostages were not released immediately. Among the body parts was a decapitated head and some testicles.”

            The tactic worked and no other Russian national was taken hostage in the Middle East for the next 20 years, until the 2006 abduction of Russian diplomats in Iraq.”

            Maybe if we followed the Russian example and started rounding up ISIS family members (if we haven’t got any left in Guantanamo) they might think twice. If only the NSA gathered USEFUL information on real terrorists …but I digress.

          Black Jack Pershing vs. Muslim Terrorists

          “One important thing to remember is that Muslims detest pork because they believe pigs are filthy animals. Some of them simply refuse to eat it, while others won’t even touch pigs at all, nor any of their by-products. To them, eating or touching a pig, its meat, its blood, etc., is to be instantly barred from paradise and doomed to hell.

          Just before World War I, there were a number of terrorist attacks against the United States and it’s interests by, you guessed it, Muslim extremists.

          So General Pershing captured 50 of the terrorists and had them tied to posts execution style. He then had his men bring in two pigs and slaughter them in front of the, now horrified, terrorists.

          The soldiers then soaked their bullets in pigs blood, and proceeded to execute 49 of the terrorists by firing squad.

          The soldiers then dug a big hole, dumped in the terrorist’s bodies and covered them in pig blood, entrails, etc.

          They let the 50th man go. And for about the next 42 years, there was not a single attack by a muslim fanatic anywhere in the world.”

          • sixpack says:

            I could skip the broom handles, but the rest is how I was taught — to make it so not worth their time and trouble to attack me. For terrorists, it’s “win, lose or draw”, so we have to remove the “win” and “draw” options.

        Although man has done some evil, we are also capable of extreme good:

        What species has landed on the moon?
        What species has documented centuries of their own endeavors, good and bad?
        What species has overcome their own diseases to prolong their lives?
        What species is willing to go into almost certain death to help others that are less fortunate?

        I could go on and on, as I’m sure you could. What’s the point?

        We are the dominant life form on this planet and ultimately, we are responsible for it.

        From the oil spills in the ocean to the nuclear waste both on land AND in the ocean (Fukushima), we own these.

        Pollution and the destruction of our planet is all on us. Beheadings? Really? WTF?

        I’m not an environmentalist until the environment is dying…I’m not a Bible thumper until I perceive “The End of Days”…I’m Human.

        We WILL make mistakes, and it is on US to correct them as a species. I’m sure there’s some bat-guano crazy bears out there, maybe the other bears take care of the issue, I don’t know. One thing I do know is that we need to work together, intelligently, to eliminate the problems in the world and I for one do not see this happening with the current world leadership.

        I don’t blame my fellow man, I blame the leaders of my fellow men. I want the trouble makers out, but until enough people are fed up with the status quo and there is a “Human Army” to take out the trash, we’re in trouble.

        Please don’t be fooled by the “politikin'”, the Republicans and the Democrats (as they call themselves) are just flip-sides of the same coin. They’re all in bed with each other.

        I take a risk in even posting this in here, but keep the underground alive brothers, we’re needed. Don’t lose hope. Look forward to what we CAN achieve together and not just the negative things.

      As a general instance of this:

      So I’ve heard there are a lot of bums in Detroit, who are at this very moment huddling in abandoned buildings and basically freezing to death, most likely quite literally.

      Now you would think… back in ancient times, these guys would band up, take some shelters, cut some trees, make some fires, and all basically be “drafted” into their “military”, defending their “tent city”.

      But they don’t now.

      And let’s recall all the bulldozers rolling over tent cities of late.

      And why don’t they?

      Totally. Utterly. Pathetically. Laughably. HILARIOUSLY. Out-gunned. That’s why.

      These people are going to die, no joke. They are dying right now as I type this. No sh*t, they are watching their life end in first-person perspective right this very second now.

      If that wouldn’t motivate someone, I don’t know what would.

      And people are all like “I’m gonna do this and that and bag me some blue helmets and on and on when it comes”.

      You’re going to grab your ankles and kiss it goodbye when it comes, most likely. If Detroit is any indication. It’s not like it’s going to be this big “thing” that goes down all at once and it’s like “ok obviously this is it”.

      This is definitely “it” for those guys. How’s that resistance of theirs coming along?

      Better to be already in a situation that’s sustainable right now. With any luck “it” will just pass right by you.

    On 9/11 I was standing under the world trade center in another city besides nyc; there are many wtcs in the us. Pigs came and told everyone to leave and wouldn’t tell us why. Streets were so jammed you couldn’t move anywhere. I went to a shopping mall to wait it out. The mall kicked everyone out and I was just walking in the streets. And the day after that’s when I started to EDC.

    I was urban for many years now I’m semi-rural. You can certainly be an urban prepper. It’s just not as strong a position as preps and safety go. On the other hand my urban apartments have never been broken into. But three of my rural properties have been broken into when I wasn’t there. After that I started sleeping with handcuffs and police scanner in the dresser.

      Those cops that had you move from a potential target (as they damn sure didn’t know what was next) did you a favor.

      The book, “Surviving Economic Collapse” written about Argentina has a lot of real world useful advice. He stated those in rural areas had no support and were targets. I think a half acre lot in the suburbs with a well organized garden and good neighbors is probably the best. If by chance you had a large extended family on multiple acres that would be best.

        It is the consensus of many halakhic [rabbinic law] decisors that the yefat to’ar [non-Judaic female prisoners] can be subject to involuntary intercourse [rape], though only once, after which she must undergo a specific regimen prescribed in the Torah [i.e. Talmud], conversion and marriage, before her [Judaic] captor is permitted further sexual relations with her.

They survived the great depression. When i asked him what he taught about the population difference, he laughed and said that there was no chance in hell that we would survive this. He told me that we would be invaded by China, and that we would become canibals, and that he sees us killing and eating each and the foreign soldiers killing us, murder, rape, attrocities to the extreme and to each other, and the soldiers, once the animal population got depleted, it’s canibalism. He barely made it with his wife and kids, and almost starved to death, then they got to Lousiana, the food was plentill full, thanks to the local animals and vermins, that solved the food supply issue. I listen to people and talk to soldiers who have been in war, and real situations and experiencing. They tell me its, kill or be killed. It is really something else. I am now prepared for hell on earth as we know it. If its invasion, i am ready, if its local civil war, i am ready. When it hits, me like eveyone else who talks tough, will probabley Sh….t my pants, loose bladder control and run like hell. If we are cornered, the red necks in my are who i run into all the time says that the attackers, foreign or domestic, will be dealth with in a very severe manner. They said that they will stay here, fight here and die here. One of my friends signed up for Selco’s Shtf school. I just about sh…t my pants, and lost bladder control reading it. Selco, internationally known, locally respected. I highly recomend his course. You have got to read it. Now we have found out that the food supply has now been cut off and that food is not coming in in the ports, and Isis is coming in and has a Jihadist traning camp off of County Rd 3 in Brazoria, Texas. See Google and do a search, i was really supprised at what was going on. Something bad is about to happen, and it’s not looking good at all. I really feel sorry for the unprepared, they are really screwed. The 1.2 million chinese soldiers in the Sierra madreas in Mexico who are being told to get ready to invade Houston and Texas. These punks have no idea what awaits them once they enter Houston, Cypress, Katy, Woodland, Conroe, etc. Even i cops i have met told me that something is coming and that they have begun personal preparation. The armament in my City and the outskirt cities, is non the less HORRIFIC. Any of you Chinese, Russian, Nato, Un soldiers reading my post, good luck to you all once you get here. You will know the mistake that you ‘ve made when you arrive in my city.

      NUMBER #1 WE DO NOT IMPORT LARGE QUANTITIES OF FRESH FOOD FROM CHINA. FROZEN/CANNED/ YES.small qtys.BUT NOT ENOUGH TO DISRUPT THE US FOOD SUPPLY.UNLESS YOUR COUNTING Poisoned bird/DOG FOOD.
      NUMBER TWO .YOUR ARMAMENT’S statement regarding YOUR LOCAL TOWNS AND CITIES comment is absurd. WITHOUT A LEADER/COMMANDER/support staff and heavy artillery.That’s called an army.you can have all the ak47s and ar15s you want .DO you know what a small group of heavily armed men of just 10,000 can do? devastate entire towns and cities and the people that live in them.MY dad fought against the Chinese in korea and they ran out of ammo.to many to kill Your dreaming. wake up!!!

      ISIS causes manageable trouble which justifies a US military response. The canon fodder of ISIS has no idea that their leadership is compromised. This will sooner or later show its true intent when both Islamic rebels and overt elements of the US military attack Syria.

      When the alliances don’t make sense then those alliances aren’t really allied. Its like what one sees on TV where one Federal Agency is going undercover posing as criminals while another Federal Agency out of the loop is investigating them. I’ll bet even some of those on the inside have a difficult time understanding friend verses foe. I can’t imagine explaining this to Joe Biden. The SNL skit would be hilarious.

    OFF TOPIC — 100% SATIRE / HUMOR

    An “A.S.S.H.O.L.E.” Will Be Everywhere, Promises President Obama

    Washington–President Obama today signed into law the “America’s Secret Services Helping Our Liberties Endure” act, or ASSHOLE.

    “This much needed piece of legislation will give us the tools we need to place an ASSHOLE on nearly every street corner, making our great country impervious to another 9/11,” said the president, adding “There will be an ASSHOLE on your cell phone, an ASSHOLE monitoring your ISP and many more ASSHOLE’s in our schools, work places and other public meeting places where al Qaeda types can and do flourish.”

    “We must endure a few privations, such as temporarily suspending the Bill of Rights in our never-ending struggle against those who attacked us on 9/11, but no freedom loving American will object to that small sacrifice to help us prevent al Qaeda or IS or aL Nusra from again striking the homeland.”

    DHS Head Johnson said that he would personally see that ASSHOLE’s were everywhere, smothering the homeland in a blanket of security agents from which there would be no escape for those seeking to do us harm, protest against the act, or those foolish enough to rally for reinstatement of the Bill of Rights.

    Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen issued a press release saying that to help pay for all these ASSHOLE’s, the Fed would be willing to loan the USA some more of its own money, and as long as we can only pay back interest on the money previously borrowed, then the agents of terror would never bother the homeland again.

    In the calm safety of my armchair I long ago decided I’m more afraid of dying dishonorably than of dying. Samurai wars meant the melee, within which one warrior squared off against another warrior. The carnage was horrific but honor governed conduct.

    In advance of being in the situation one doesn’t know how one will behave. I like to think I would behave honorably.

    Seems to me a drone-fired missile that drops out of the sky, one minute Abdul is alive, the next moment he is dead, is at least as much about terror as anything ISIS has done.

    Personally I don’t care which species of Islamic rules which acreage in the Middle East. Our government is just as intent on ruling there as the locals are. Difference is, it’s their home, they have a right to be there. We don’t.

Humans as a species is a failure.

    2000 years and we cant get it right.

    I hang my head in shame at all the money wasted on the cold war alone from 1955-1995. ICBM bombers flying 24/7, nuclear missile silos, etc etc and in the end… all that time and money wasted… we could have done so much long term good with that money.

    And today all this nonsense terror, wars, lies and BS… it is all a money making scam. They invent an enemy to make money fighting.

    General Dwight Eisenhower and General Smedley Butler (War is a racket) told us LONG AGO all we needed to know about the scam of wars… and what did we do with that info???? NOTHING!!!

      To a certain degree, most of us probably feel the same way as you do at times, because we all know the future is not going to be getting better. No one is asking you to physically take yourself to the fight. If the fight comes to you, then I would hope you would have the decency to defend yourself if such an event was to unfold upon you.

      I often think how nice it would be to live on an habitable tropical island, by myself or with a small select group of like-minded individuals. No Governance, just straight up common(sense) laws. People helping each other on daily activities and enjoying what nature has to offer.

      South- Don’t stand an fight, lay down, you’re harder to spot. Seriously, here’s what I saw;
      When we’re thrown into a totally new situation- usually we freeze as our minds attempt to analyse the situation and come to a rational (read sane and safe) course of action. Our minds buzz but usually we stand motionless . If it’s a new and violent situation, we freeze longer, a kind of mental shock ensues. That’s why some simply run away- or cower.
      It’s better with training, often we simple become mechanical and do what we were trained to do- still in shock as many will atest to
      Most of us who were peacetime troops admitted in humble honesty we didn’t know either. We simply hoped we’d react correctly and lead as we were taught and would keep our guys alive best we could. The usual promise was; If we survive-I won’t laugh at you (much) if you piss yourself if you don’t laugh at me…much.
      It’ll help if you talk with your guys about it before hand. (and after) But training is best, train JUST THE WAY you’d do it. No patty-cake. ‘course, that raises eyebrows sometimes. be careful. Hope it helps.

    I just heard some of the top Christian Preachers are tell their flocks “There is a STORM coming”

    For me I have already made up my mind. I will stand and fight, I’m too damn old to run, and when I had my knees replaced I don’t run that well. I also with my training will stand and fight, because I have learned to shut down the run reflex. I also know that it might be better to retreat and regroup and fight another day.

    I also know this is my home, my family, and to someone else it is just a piece of land, or just another person. I’m willing to let them loose their life try to take it.

    I pray for all the folks on this site that they never have to find out if they will fight or run. I have come close to take a couple of lives, and the feeling you get is not pleasant. To me it was a very sickening feeling. No shakes just sick to my stomach.

  25. WhiteWolf says:

    Excellent article. When confronted with an enemy like ISIS it’s best to understand that for a time you’ll need to shut your humanity down. The best example IMHO is the legacy Vlad The Impaler left for us. Was it sick? Yes. Horrificly brutal? Yes. Did it work? Absolutely. We often talk about the difference between sheep, sheep dogs, and wolves. Wolves are a perceived threat from the get go. However, if you’be ever seen a wolf mauled to death you’ll notice the pack usually retreats. If you’re smart you string up the carcass as a reminder. If not they’re soon to return. While I will never promote violence against innocent people, groups like ISIS should be met with a force of violence that would make Vlad himself turn away. Images from Hell should be burned in to their minds so that they know what awaits them should they continue their evil paths. That’s my two cents anyways. Maybe it sounds hateful and scary, but I’ve seen too many Christians, men, women, and even children murdered by these bastards to care anymore.

  30. Houst/Katy/Cypress/Shtf says:

    About my comment about the chinese soldiers in the Sierra Madras. The first time i heard this honestly was on the youtube videos about the truck driver who was delivery food, goods, etc. I had heard quayle and Hodges and Dr Jim Garrow talk about the Chinese that have entered out city on Visas. We have all heard about the Russians in our coutry by the 20,’s thousands, the UN, and Latvians soldier nationals. I see the comments that some of the folks here have been bashing Dave Hodges and have a right thier opininons. I belive he is telling the God Honest truth. Now here is and incident that happen to me and this happen in the month of January of 2014, right here in the Galleria Houston Tx. A female friend who is a tatoo artist in the Galleria, whom i was hanging out with, i happen to tell here about a hodges article that i read earlier about russian soldiers seen in cities up north. Alex Jones of all people had a caller tell him that he had run into a russian soldier in Conroe Texas, that he went up to the man and asked him where he was from and he said Russia. Now back to the tatoo shop incident. I showed my girlfriend the link, and she goes, this is serious, let me post it on facebook, i told her don’t do that, its being monitored by the agencies. Her comment was this “f…k them, i could care less”. She posted it. We went out in the parking lot by her car, she lit up a cigarette, we then noticed a white lexus pull up. This was mins later after her post on her Facebook page. She goes, oh, i have a customer. We go back up to the store front. WHEN I LOOKED. I saw this tall about 5″11″ eastern european looking dude about 27-28 yrs, extremely muscular, caves, quads, arms, built like a brick sh…t house. He looked right at her.

    Him-what is this place
    her-its a tatoo shop, do you need to get a tatoo.
    him-where is the computer.
    me-whats the problem.
    him- aggressively, its that your computer.

    I panicked.

    I noticed that he was very built, very extremely muscular,i cannot emphasize the muscularity, since i am bodybuilder, and a martial artist. He looked me right in the eye point blank, and then turned entered the store and walked right up the the computer. I then stoped him

    me-come on, lets go outside. where are you from and whats you business here.
    him-i am from russia.
    me- i am from north Houston, and i am not afraid of you, so you better move on.

    I taught he was going to attacked me. He was a trained killer, its was obvious. Then i noticed him looking at my body sizing me up, i backed up 6 Ft away to prepare for his attack, then i told him

    me-i am from up north, we will be ready for your kind once you start sometime, go back to where you came from and dont come back again.

    He then turned around and left in his white lexus. This son of a bitch was so musclular he may have been a super soldier, possible. My point is something is going on. He was russian. He came by the store and demanded to see the computer and he was acting weird. He matched the physical distcription of s Spetnaz. People, we are being surrounded and foreighn soldiers are now in my city. A retired cop me 6 months ago that he was in central America, and that 2 retirees told him that chinese soldiers are massing in Mexico and panama to Invade the United States and he then told me that he is meeting up with the patriots and Veterans because this really happening. I cant prove this happend to me to anyone, yet it did. This incident backed up Steve Quayle, David Hodges 100%, period. Was the russian monitoring facebook and who told to go investigate the store. he damands to see that computer. Whats wrong with this picture? Now i am hearing about operation Boa and Lighning from Hawk on Steve Qyayle site about this so called operation will be going down to stike all patriots, veterans and gun owners over a 3 day period between now and Ocotber 1st. Something is cooking. Needless to say, my friend says she will not post on facebook ever again. I warned her.

      Marcus –

      Technically you are correct, but there is a huge problem.
      People like us, that are awake and know whats going on for the most part – are maybe about 10%.

      90% or more of the population of America are DUMB!!!!!!
      (a) complete denial
      (b) don’t care
      (c) self centered assholes
      (d) all of the above

      Answer: d

      We are a very small percentage, and according to the Federal Government – our 10% or less of us are Domestic Terrorist.
      We are left no choice but to be attacked first, either way we are screwed if we were to take the first strike. The propaganda machine that has been working so well to the dumbed down society, that they themselves would buy into it and turn onto us.

      I have 3 Threat Levels – starting with highest priority.

      (1) Government [federal, state, local & foreign]
      (2) Society [uninformed sheep, gangs, and self centered assholes]
      (3) Law Enforcement [modern day steroid rage thuggish kind]

      (4) Foreign – only way this will be a threat, is because the US Government themselves invited them here to create problems. I see no foreign intrusion or invasion from the outside, unless they feel like committing suicide. I just do not see that happening, common sense should play a strong role to any foreign entity. This is Why I do not see an outside threat, just an inside one.

      Which brings me to my last part of my post.
      If the political theatrics (domestic/foreign) do not play well for the establishment, then for sure another “event” will take place on US soil.
      If TPTB can not get their WWWIII going off with a bang, then for sure they’ll create their Problem – Reaction – Solution

    I have learned to value a life of peace and quiet, unwilling to do harm as revenge for being born.
    However inside there still lurks that monster, waiting for the day it can be unleashed upon evil, I welcome that.
    It will be most unfortunate for evil people on that day, several times I have been close to serious injusry or certain death and walked away without a scratch, I believe due to divine intervention, only god can remove me from the earth.
    I have reached one determination because of my life experience, when the day comes I can and will unleash that monster for the protection of others.

    ISISrael —–
    Israel has 400+ NUKES.
    Israel HATES Christianity & GENTILES.
    Israel thinks GREATER ISRAEL should rule the World.
    Israel has “DUAL-citizens”whose only true loyalty is to Israel, embeded throughout American government/society. According to the Zionist creed, Israel is the state of the Jews, all the Jews. Every Jew in the world belongs to Israel, even if temporarily residing somewhere else If Israel could provoke nuclear apocalypse between America&Russia …..and maybe even China ….. BY WAY OF DECEPTION…. Israel would be the ONLY NUCLEAR ARMED SUPERPOWER left………
    Especially if it nuked many of It’s HATED/HISTORICAL “enemies” While they are bombing each other.(Germany, Poland, England, Egypt, Iraq, basically ALL gentiles should “bear the YOKE of Israel”)Noted Israeli military historian Martin Karfeld stated that Israel could find itself one day forced to exterminate the European continent using all kinds of weapons including its nuclear arsenal if it felt its demise neared, stressing that Israel also considers Europe a hostile target.
    Does Israel have nuclear missiles aimed at the main world capitals?? — Nothing surprises me anymore. Seem like every world government today, is hell-bent with death, destruction or wars.

    Israel BRAGS about doing similar in Babylon(75,000dead) Egypt(all the FIRST BORN)
    Israel’s MOTTOES:
    (1) NEVER forgive & NEVER forget.
    (2) By Way of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War.

    I am being accused of posting fantasy tales., Thanks Free Slave for the positive comment. This was a heads up, i am letting people know that what Steve Quayle and Hawk talked about, the russians in our cities is real. One was in my face demanding to see my girlfriends computer. Who the hell aggressively just barges into a business like that. IT OBIVOUS THAT SOME AGENCY SENT OUT THE RUSSIAN SON OF BITCH TO SEE WHO POSTED THE COMMENT OF FACE BOOK. HE WAS ACTING VERY AGGRESSIVE TOWARD ME AND MY FRIEND. I TAUGHT HE WAS GOING TO ATTACK ME. It seems like Kaynine thinks that he has it all figured. I dont live in a fantasy world. When soldiers from other countries come here, they will have hell in my city. Everyweek, the ammo is running out of the Academy and Freedom Munitions. You thing, that i am making up that story about the russian up in my face in the galleria. THIS IS A REAL INCIDENT, THIS IS A REAL FACT OF LIfE. THIS HAPPEN TO ME. My first comment about the chinese soldiers, i was told this by a retired cop who was told this by other cops, while he was in central America, that chins is massing troops in Mexico to invade us, and i have been told this by former veterans and soldiers who live in my city. Lots of soldiers are moving to Texas for a reason. This is the last Free remainding state. So keep blasting me Kaynine, you think you know it all. If cops are telling me and others to arm up, it means they know something is going on, so this is not fantasy. Selco did that post to remind us what is about to happen and how we might handle it, and the results of shtf. Fantasy tales coming from me, not happening. I dont live in s fantasy world. There are things i know that i cant even post on this site. Things are far worst than we can ever imagine. i hope Selso deletes your account. 10,000 soldiers with heavy artilery cannot take down Houston. All 10,000 of them will be dead in 1 week. At some point within days, these little punks have to come out of thier amored personal carriers, to engage the population face to face, this is when the fun starts. They invading army will need access to lots of women and girls and go house to house, this is when they are going get thier invading asses blown away. They will get a SEVERE RESPONSE, WHEN THEY GET TO KATY, CYPRESS, NORTH HOUSTON. 1,000,000 INVADING US, now this can cause a major problem. Still they have to spread thin, they will not survive. We win this war, period. Kaynine, shut the hell up. No wonder they are desperately trying to take our guns, tpdb know that thier plans to have us invaded will fail miserably, of course, they need to disarm us to make it a cake walk for the jihadist, chinese, nato and russians when they get here. As for any of you invading punks reading my post, you have been forewarned. My city is not Iraq, it not Kobane, not Syria. This city is armed with fire power to the ENTH DEGREE. Kaynine, you think you know it all eh. You dont know sh…t.

    Judging from the comments, the world would be a heaven without white people and muslims. I say let’s make a big space ship and send them all out to space let them kill each other off on the moon. As a native American I wish all you people would get off my land and go back where you all came from.

  46. Houst/Katy/Cypress/Shtf says:

    Leonard, welcome to the board. I never taught i would be getting bashed up on this site. I have been monitoring this site since 2010. One my buddies in Native American. He was adobted by a White American Couple. They funded his College and he is a Nurses Aide. He belives in our Constitution and lives in a Red Neck Area. What the Anerican people did to the Natives was really bad.. Most American Patriots of today like the Native Americans. Your land is your land, i back up you land comment. I understand what your talking about. I love the native Americans. I am your friend. The war of the near future, i see natives fighting with Americans, to fend of invaders.

    Post collapse and restoration. There should be ZERO immigration when the government gets restored.

    Our problems exist because our government got infiltrated.

    Too many good people who don’t understand how evil and devious the Communists/Fascists/Muslims are.

    I believe we will win and recreate America. No Welfare. No property taxes. A simple sales tax. Sealed borders. For starters.

  48. outside observer says:

    One thing is for certain if anything…..humans are a failed species. There is very little to no hope for you. As I read the posts in this forum it is clear that insanity prevails and humanity will always do what they have always done….self destruct.

    They realized long ago that unsupervised humans can be used as planet cleaners……drop a few of them off on any planet….come back in a few thousand years and it will be a glazed dead dirtball ready for whatever comes next.

    The universe will never be a safe place as long as even one human breathes.

    Thank you for your time.
