Random links to various news stories and blog posts that caught my attention this week:
Nine Meals From Anarchy – In 1906, Alfred Henry Lewis stated, “There are only nine meals between mankind and anarchy.” Since then, his observation has been echoed by people as disparate as Robert Heinlein and Leon Trotsky…this article goes on to show how our modern world, influenced by the economy, those nine meals are increasingly at risk.
A Bandana For Survival – Dozens of uses for the humble bandana make an essential item in my EDC and get home bags.
Yugoslavia’s Warning To The US – Is the US headed down the same track as the former Yugoslavia? COuld we see the same sort of violence and terror that shattered Serbia and Bosnia?
All Belgians To Be Issued Iodine Pills – The Belgian government has announced that it will be providing iodine pills (actually Potassium Iodide) to help protect against radioactivity in case of a nuclear accident (read terrorism). Is the US doing this? Nope. Should they? I don’t know but you can buy your own supply from several retailers including Amazon.
God bless and have a great weekend!
