Prepper News Watch for April 16, 2013

Prepper News Watch

Terrorism – Of course, they’re not calling it terrorism, but what else do you call exploded IEDs? In addition to the two that were exploded, several other unexploded IEDs were found.

Leadership – Or rather, the lack of leadership. News reports coming out today show us that our current political “leaders” know *nothing* about leadership. They haven’t a clue as to how to handle a couple of small bomb explosions, how can we expect them to handle a large scale attack? I am not belittling the deaths and injuries that many people suffered, but this is an issue that needs to be addressed. Past disasters in this country have showed us that government is not able to handle crisis on any level. Yesterday’s terror attack is just another page in that book. It’s ironic that the politicians whom concern themselves with controlling every little aspect of our lives have failed to learn how to properly handle a crisis themselves, despite the millions spent on emergency management training.

You, the Prepper – What needs to be taken from this is twofold. First, terror attacks are a reality and can happen at anytime; don’t let your guard down. Second, then the crisis hits, don’t wait for government help, you’re on your own. You’ll need to think fast and take action to protect yourself and your family.
