Hello, my friend and welcome back! It seems like every time I look at the news lately, North Korea or some other country is doing something to try to provoke a war with the US. It’s a dangerous game they are playing. This is the subject of today’s post, so grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.
If it’s not Russia flying one of their Bombers close to our coastline, or China dogging our planes over international waters, Iran harassing our ships in the Persian Gulf, then it’s North Korea launching rockets capable of carrying Nuclear warheads and threatening to attack the US. It’s like a game of Russian roulette and sooner or later someone is going to mess up and there will be hell to pay.
Russia is already pissed about what is going on in Syria, and just looking for an excuse go to war with us and their allies, IRAN would be more than happy to join right in. As for China, they are just waiting for the US to do something about North Korea so they will have an excuse to join in as well.
Do you see what’s happening here? Russia wants to use a small country (IRAN) as an excuse to retaliate against the US because they are allies. That way when they do go to war with the US, they can say they were just defending the little guy from the big bad Americans. China is doing the same thing with North Korea. If the US takes any action against either North Korea or IRAN, then you can look for war to follow. Now add to this ISIS and other terrorist groups and you have a recipe for disaster. That my friend would be very bad!
Ex-President Obama pretty much destroyed our military defenses over the last 8 years leaving us very susceptible to foreign attack. Like it or not, right now America is weak and would not fare well against Russia or China. We simply do not have the numbers of soldiers and equipment that would be needed to wage such a war. President Trump is trying to rebuild our Armed Forces and equipment as fast as he can, but the Democrats and Liberals are fighting him at every chance.
Yes my friend, there is blood in the water and the sharks have started circling.
Now, don’t get me wrong, our fighting men and women are second to none when it comes to being battle-ready, but there just aren’t enough of them at this time. The Air Force has had to store thousands of airplanes due to lack of parts and money to maintain them. They are also desperately short on piolets as well. Yes, Obama did a number on the US and we are still trying to recover, but it will take time.
The US also has its own underdog allies in this Chess game of destruction as well. Japan is under a direct threat from the development of North Korea’s missiles and could attack North Korea without China being able to get in the mess. We also have Israel who could counter IRAN without Russia getting involved and so these smaller Nations are moved around like pawns on chess board each protecting their own king. Unfortunately, however, they will pay the highest price while allowing their “Big Brother” ally to protect its self from world condemnation.
SO why am I telling you all of this? It’s because we as Preppers need to be ready to not only survive but defend ourselves as well. We need to be able to defend our little piece of earth and help this great country of ours should we be needed. Food alone is not enough and if you haven’t invested it several weapons as well as quite a bit of ammo, then chances are you may not survive no matter how much food you have. Now is the time to be doubling up on you Ammo and weapons in preparation for what lies ahead. It may not happen tomorrow or the next day, but just as surely as the weapon in a Russian Roulette fires eventually, this game the world is playing will to explode, and when it does, God help us all!
If you have been wondering just why the US hasn’t dropped a big one on North Korea, then you should now know. A war with China or Russia would forever change the face of the earth and leave America in shambles at the very least. Well, that is it for today and I hope you have found this post worthwhile. Until next time my friend, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America.
