**Please note that nothing I say is to be used offensively, but only as a means of last defense against an unlawful assault on your homestead.**
As to satellites, I don't think there is anything that we can reasonably do. I know there are ghillie suits that mask IR sigs, but I believe they
cost 12-15k and are only available to SF/3letter agencies, so that is not an option. Maybe pray for a mid space collision. Who knows, maybe The Big
Guy with throw you a bone.
Seriously though, worry about what you can control. What you need to do is wargame your place. Don't answer these questions here, but you need to
look over alot of things.
First, Figure out the goal of the home invasion(kill, capture, rob, or enslave) and plan from there.
Where will they come through? The door, the window, the roof, blowing a hole in your outside wall for their own door or coming in through the
neighbor's shared wall?
Anticipate the strength of a probable assault. Are you a High Value Target? Are you active in the patriot community, a militia member, publicly
outspoken against authorities, trained in firearms, chemistry or explosives, a ccw holder, former military, trained in small unit tactics? These could
all be targets for an unconstitutional government coming for the people who may pose a threat/may form or lead a resistance movement. Figure out how
many you need to defend against and triple it.
Once you figure out the probable opfor, figure out what means they have at their disposal. Black Helicopters, Machine Guns, Suicide Bombers, AH64
Apache helicopters, APCs and Tanks, MQ9 Reaper UAVs, knives, bangalores, bulldozers. Plan your defenses based on your perceived threats and your
manpower. Fighting solo would require significantly more automation and remote operation than if you have a fire squad to hold the position.
There is the chance that if things were really bad, they could just blow you away with RPGs or hellfire missiles, but at that point, if you do what I
suggested, you will likely have taken out enough to rest well and enjoy the afterlife.
Not to mention, if the Muslims are right in the global religion lottery and Allah rewards martyrs, well I bet you'll be enjoying some tacos at the
end of the day
Oh, and as always, the defenses are useless if you do not practice.
PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. There is no substitute for putting rounds down range and doing dry runs of your strategic defensive plan. Have a backup
plan and a backup backup plan. There is no such thing as "too prepared" but there is such a thing as "too dead"
Set a timer for a couple of hours, go to sleep, and when it goes off, roll out of bed and defend your house. the baddies aren't going to wait until
you are in your defensive position to come, they'll come when you least expect it, be it when you're in bed, in the shower, on the pot, cooking
dinner, or playing madden.
Run house clearing drills DAILY. There is no substitute and if you do not know your own place like the back of your hand in the black of night, you
don't deserve to defend it.
And as always, EXERCISE YOUR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS AT ALL TIMES
. Your pistol should always be with you so that you can fight your way to your
rifle. Your rifle should be loaded plus one in the chamber so you can fight your way to freedom.
I'd also recommend a tactical vest and a pack that is loaded with everything you will need to bug out kept in the trunk of your car, because you may
come home to an ugly scene one day at which point, just keep on driving like you don't live there.
