If you were on the bomb squad trying to defuse a weapon, and you made the wrong, fatal move, the speed of light twixt your eyeballs and your brain wouldn’t be fast enough to allow you to see you just screwed up.
Ka-boom! You’re burnt toast.
Similarly it is argued that if World War III went nuclear, in that hour–we every-day citizens wouldn’t find out about it until we were already caught in the middle of it. Meaning? Well it’s just not feasible that we could count on much advance warning to let us know it was time to deploy our bug-out plans or whatever else we had mapped-out for surviving “the big one”. Whatever that is…
At least that’s the message we read in Bruce Beach’s latest newsletter. And he makes a good point. If you hadn’t already heard, we are informed that it’s a fairly good bet that a tactical nuke may have been exploded in rebel-contested Ukraine. If true —that if that had been a real nuclear blast—(and there are some indicators that it was), there was almost a week-long delay before many of us got the news.
And you may be hearing about it for the first time here. Please notice that the corporate controlled media never reported this episode.
If you go ahead and read the newsletter which I’ve posted here, you will not be able to ignore the major point that Bruce is making between-the-lines; that is, if you wait to the last minute to make your preps– you probably waited too long to expect anything other than a very inconvenient outcome. Even if you have a fancy bunker or really sophisticated preparations for an “all-hazard” disaster scenario, it still requires some really good, early warning intelligence to enable you to get into tactical position for whatever is on the way.
Bruce mentions he has an alarm to notify him of a power outage taking place that affects his electrical power. That’s something on my personal prepper list. Considering that the electrical grid could and probably would be the first thing that will go down in ANY kind of nuclear assault from whatever source, it only makes sense to have a way to be alerted immediately if there is a loss of power in your local area. That would then give you THE prompting to check the radio stations to see if they are broadcasting normally. If you learn that the radio stations are on-air or not, you could have some early heads-up of whether there might be something more to the power fault then a common outage corrected by a short wait for the electric utility crews to fix.
So one takeaway here is that it is one thing to take notice of “The Handwriting on the Wall”. It’s quite another thing to have made preparations well in advance after reading the signs-of-the-times.
Bruce thinks the proverbial house is already on-fire and we’re just waiting for the roof to cave in. I’m not sure we’re there yet, but it is definitely not advisable to delay those preps of yours any longer than necessary.
It’s just not feasible to count on much advance warning to let us know that the “big one” (a major grid-down event) is on the way. For most of us, by the time we suspect something is amiss, the time for ducking-for-cover has already passed us by.
