What did you do for your preparedness this week? (2015-09-12)

As far as current events go, it seems the most relevant this past week has been the buildup to war in Syria as the chess pieces have been strategically moved. It seems that the ‘West’ has wanted war there for several years now, but ‘blocking’ events have not enabled it (yet). Now it seems we’re getting mighty (and dangerously) close.

This week Russia has evidently ‘moved in’ (to Syria) with its marines, five ships equipped with guided missiles, and SA-22 Pantsir-S1 anti-air missiles, to protect its ally (Assad) – and we just found out Friday that Iran has apparently sent troops there too. UPDATE: Reported late afternoon Friday, the worldโ€™s largest nuclear submarine (200 warheads), the Dmitri Donskoy (TK-208), Nato-coded Typhoon, has set sail destined for the Syrian coast…

Are we ready to fight a war with Russia (and Iran)?
With the imminent global economic collapse, it might not be that far-fetched…

There are PLENTY of logical reasons to prepare, and to prepare quickly. Things don’t ‘feel’ right out there these days…

With that said, what have you been doing for preparedness this week, and what are your concerns going forward?


 
My own preparedness has been hampered this week due to being at a different location from home base. Although while I have not done anything tangible, I have spent time ‘thinking’ about additional things that I need to do next – as well as scenarios which may or may not come to fruition.

Which brings up a point… We (you, I) need to spend adequate time thinking, contemplating, planning, gathering knowledge (learning), setting goals, deciding.

It’s not ‘all’ about tangible preparedness assets, rather it is also partially about the ‘right’ assets, the right plans, and the things that you know. ‘Think’ about it.

 
Your turn…
