A Black Swan Event in the Making?
Some months back I was reading a fictional/futuristic account of the US Naval forces getting their ass handed to them off the coast of Africa. It played out that some oil rich country was going to sign away it's oil rights to China and the Chinese knew that the US would find or make up a reason to invade and manipulate or force a regime change.
However being a few steps ahead this time China filled the country with covert missile crews and heavily subsidized the local military all very clandestine-like.
The end result was a complete disaster for the US forces especially the Navy but also left many ground units stranded and surrounded in other parts of Africa and the Middle East.
Rumors are flying right now that the four US destroyers laying off the coast of Syria are simply bait as our leaders know these ships are well within the danger zone of missile attacks by Super Sunburn and Onyx class missiles which were reportedly supplied to Syria by the Russians. There are also reports of possible Chinese delivery of the Dong Feng 21 (carrier killer) missile into Iran which places one carrier group within easy striking distance from the Iranian coast.
I cannot say I have ever been an expert on missile systems or ship combat and capabilities, but it has been a long time since any real powerful nation has challenged us and both Russia and China seem almost eager to do so these days.
What if Obummer pushes a war on us and several US ships get sunk before Thursday evening? To be honest folks Russia, China and many other countries have been treating Obummer like the patsy he is for years now. I doubt that arrogant screw-ball would even consider the chance of being out maneuvered and that scares me. It's pricks like that that get good men killed. In far too many ways this whole affair seems like a set up. It follows certain logical conclusions anyone with any sense can see that Obummer and his cronies has followed before.
I just don't like it. It smells.
Earlier today K recommended everyone stock up on gasoline. I think he was on to something there.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
