nuclear war . This war is Biblical . Ezekiel chapter 38
Israel has nukes . Their scientist aren't stupid , the Jews had a very big part in the development of the Abomb
You might be sharing like Japan the experience the effects of the nuclear bomb on your city .Russia and China are going to stick with Iran and will
likely first strike us . With all of the Navy and Military over there in and around Israel and the OIL RESERVES don't think Russia will just ignore
Time to wake up , making little remarks won't help . You need to get ready to survive . Wall Mart will not be stocking their shelves if the S-H-T-F
I hope you don't take this personal, but I kinda can't help but laugh at people who really believe "oil being too expensive" etc will make life a
living hell... (or "a big crap in all your lives" if that's how you prefer to call it)
I know (almost) none of us can remember a time when cars were a rare sight etc, but you do realize that people did live like that once? And they did
just fine, one might even argue, better, than we're doing now?
I wouldn't give a damn if oil prices skyrocketed, yes, a LOT of things would change, but if you buy into the fear-mongering surrounding it, I feel
sad for you, because it's instantly obvious that you have never experienced a moderate lifestyle before, one where you at least TRY to be
self-sustaining instead of being dependent on the giants that want nothing more from you than exactly that; you being dependent on them.
Did you know that if you put a seed in the ground; a plant will come out? Did you know that some (most) plants are actually nutritious? Some bare
things you know as 'vegetables'! Did you know that in the late 19th century a magnificent transportation device called the bicycle was gaining
popularity? It allowed people to get nearly everywhere faster and with a lot less effort than walking, by using nothing more than their two god-given
legs! I can go on, but I'm sure you get the point...
Yes, for some finding an alternative solution to traveling 2 miles will be a living hell at first, but believe me, you'll get used to it just like
the people who didn't even know what a "car" was did. People have the great trait of being able to adjust themselves to their surroundings and the
resources they have available, and though many will have a harder time with that now than at any time before, I'm sure they are still capable.
(this is, of course, going from the almost worst case scenario, which I don't see happening, but please, stop pretending like people will not survive
without oil and other commodities that were unknown to man (in their current form) for most of mankind's history... You'd survive without a car, and
yes, even without an iPhone, laptop, television,... (not saying you own any of those or are dependent on them))
