Germany have announced plans to reintroduce conscription following their warning to citizens last week that they should stockpile food & water. The announcement comes amid an effort by governments around the world to prepare their citizens for World War 3.
The German government will discuss their emergency plans Wednesday.
The BBC reports:
Germany may reintroduce a form of national service for civilians to help the army deal with a future disaster. The role of civilians is part of a new civil defense strategy to be discussed by the government on Wednesday. Since the strategy was leaked to the media there has been intense debate about stockpiling food & water. In a crisis civilians might be obliged to help direct traffic or provide fuel & accommodation for the military.
Germany only scrapped conscription in 2011. However, it was not removed from the country’s constitution, which means it would be incredibly simple to reinstate. Not sure I like the look of this.
The German Federal Office of Civil Protection & Disaster Assistance published a list
The German Federal Office of Civil Protection & Disaster Assistance (BBK) put the following list on their website as a guide:
– 28 liters (6.2 gallons) of drinking water
– 4.9 kg (10.8 pounds) of bread, noodles, rice, potatoes
– 5.6 kg (12.3 pounds) of vegetables & pulses (preferably pre-cooked)
– 3.6 kg (8 pounds) of fruit & nuts (in jars or tins)
This it states is a survival list that should last an individual for 2 weeks in the event of a national emergency. Wolfgang Kast, a public health manager w/the German Red Cross said,
“People have become less & less prepared for an emergency…We’ve got accustomed – not least bc of the internet – to having everything available at all times.”
In addition to the food list he suggested medicines, a flashlight, spare batteries, & candles. Hardly comprehensive, but it’s a start.
The American government has also issued recent warnings. Last summer there were 2 alarming warnings urging Americans to get prepared. 1st, in May, President Obama said:
“1 of the things that we have learned over the course of the last 7 & a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for a disaster. And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit. If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don’t wait.”
This was followed by DC Homeland Security Director Christopher Geldart issuing a warning to residents:
“Everyone needs to dust off their evacuation plans, understanding Metro isn’t a reliable option over the next year. When we put more vehicles on the road – like an emergency happening in the middle of the day & everybody leaving at the same time – that’s going to cause backup & it’s going to take people a good time to get home,” Geldart said. “It will take longer – much longer – than they are used to. So what we’re telling folks is, you need to have a plan w/your family.”
And that’s not all. The hints are everywhere that war could be on the horizon. The rest of the world hasn’t exactly been calm & peaceful, either.
In general, Europe doesn’t have the prepping mentality that exists on this side of the pond but it looks like they are starting to consider that the government may not be in a position to help its citizens.
The UK hasn’t come right out & said that Brits should start stockpiling food & water, but the government there has produced a Preparing for Emergencies booklet that few people even know exists. It’s ‘What You Can do’ page lists essential items that should be to hand in the event of an emergency & advises that enough food, water & medication should be available to last a few days. The booklet also gives advice on various emergency situations & how to deal w/them.
The pace of world events is picking up…yesterday it was announced that Turkey had evacuated an entire town as it intends to engage in across border action w/Islamic State in Syria. North Korea has fired a missile from a submarine in violation of International law.
Every day, something worrying occurs on the international stage. Worrying developments that threaten stability across the globe.
Make sure you have:
– Emergency Food
– Firearms & Ammo
– Water Filtration
– Extra Cash
There’s something very suspicious about all of these unsettling events happening in such close succession. We shouldn’t be waiting for governments to tell us to prepare. We should be doing it of our own volition. We should be taking responsibility for the safety of our families. And we should be doing it now.
