I don't think Iran has any interest in bombing the US. Look back over history and we have such a love hate love hate relationship with Iran - I'm
pretty sure that all the powers that be know this is a game.
rogue suitcase nukes are another story and if they're mixed with drugs - swell - no sense will prevail. But I thought that their problem was the
launch. other wise they're just local issues (which is horrible and sad - but not the end of life as we know it for everyone.)
Americans (humans in general) are VERY resilient and Americans especially are very quick to forget. And there are LOTS of us. And we are very
If I was king - it would be a nightmare trying to figure out how to control all of us in a catastrophe. We might be subdued for a little while - but
certainly not more than a week. Not most of us.
Not the moms, let's put it that way. Life gets in the way. I love ATS but life keeps interrupting my reading time
Moms would find or even start
the black markets to get the things to quiet their kids. They'd protect the other moms as soon as things started looking weird, so they wouldn't
have to take care of their kids too.
The press was acting as an observer of Katrina till that mom came up to CNN or MS NBC and showed her limp baby needing water. Then CNN gave her water
from their van and people all across the country started saying - ok this is ridiculous - let the people passed the armed check points and out of that
area even if they are on foot.
I was helping getting supplies to Mississippi during Katrina and I can tell you there were grassroots networks and trucks and busses and vans and if
you weren't near the dome and behind that New Orleans barricade. It may have been the wild west in the South and it may have been abandoned but it
wasn't contained and it wasn't marshal law that anyone could see. And the people were truly better off in churches and shelters or with friends
that first week - than those standing like cattle outside surrounded by armed guards. And now Mississippi is still abandoned. But guess what - so is
much of New Orleans - so it didn't help to stay anyway.
I agree - have a place to go that's in a boring low populated area that will be ignored till everything blows over. And my guess is it wont take
long. But then again, I'm sure there was a women just like me thinking this before Shock and Awe in Baghdad and probably one before the Taliban took
over Kabul 15 years ago. It must seem like modern life has been blown back to the dark ages for her and isn't bouncing back fast enough.
ugh lets hope we've spent our lives karmically stacking up enough that we can make up for any part in those lives.
I'm concerned that exciting and fresh as tshtf scenario can sound to all of us on these threads. It may actually be dreadful and dreary and drawn
out and we should have been manifesting puppies and rainbows with all our ideas instead.
we'll see. Maybe we should hope for an uneventful october instead of I told you sos.
