JI: Virtually everyone in Israel speaks some version of English. Some Brit, some American and some Aussie/ South African. You walk about near the beach in Tel Aviv and you almost do a double take and think you're in Miami Beach! The major distinction is the groups of young(18-19), khaki clad, off-duty soldiers, who, nevertheless,are sporting ( loaded magazine attached, but not seated ) M-16s in front cross body carry, hand on pistol grip, everywhere you go. It is surprising on the first day and invisible by the third. Not much street crime to speak of, as a result thereof. Also, no feeling of menace apparent. Not even up on the Golan. Tough Jews those Isrealis!

At the beginning of this latest conflict, the world was threatened with what some believe may be a Super-EMP. Check out the links in below url.

https://emptaskforce.us/index.php/4-resources/

The Civil Defense link has a scenario about what can happen in a prolonged blackout (appendix C).

I had forgotten that I had started this thread. There's a saying, "Better late than never." In this case, better premature than never.

From the current events, thus far I've learned:

-- It's useful to have a tractor in an emergency situation. Sometimes you get a free tank to take home.

-- Tactical jars of pickled tomato can be used to take down drones.

-- Alright, here's a serious one. (Had to lighten the mood first, because it's just so terrible.) Once you leave your house, what you take with you may be your only possession for a while. Woman runs to the air raid shelter (with her child & dog???), and from there she has to head directly to the border to avoid getting shelled.

-- Race can surface as a factor when you're a refugee, even if things seem OK during peacetime.

-- Your preparation may not matter that much if you decide to join the fight.

-- You only have today. I'm seeing more than one couple getting married in uniform. Peacetime may not be that different from wartime. You never know.

A somber thought, and one that hopefully won't come to pass!

I wish we began moving earlier because we would not be rushing so much, but we need to be close to family in situations like these. Now, we can prepare more than just physically for whatever the current situation leads us.

WW III. In a recent poll, cockroaches were 97% in favor.

I remember from reading about this subject in the late 1950s-early 1960s, that the clear survivors would be swine, rats and cockroaches.
