It was something of a paradox.

In boot camp we were instructed the absolute last place you wanted to be was in hand to hand combat and or a knife fight. My Drill Instructors put emphasis on using anything and everything but your hands to get the advantage, distance was your friend.
Then we went to our hand to hand combat training, to include how to use a knife.

Even in Krav Maga, we were trained in how to disarm an assailant with a knife. But the instructor noted it was likely you would not come out unscathed, but bloody.

Thank you Dirk. Your advice is always good. Its nice to see how others would react in this instance. I think most people would run away from something such as this happening. My leg isnt going to let me run very well, and if my family is with me I would tell them to take off and do what I could to minimize the threat to them. Having your point of view and expertise on the situation is a welcome bonus.

I feel for everyone affected by this attack. I wonder when these people are going to wake up. Yes these people are wanting to come here and do more damage……but I guarantee they already have quite a few in place.

How does one respond to a knife attack?.

Their will be blood, lots of blood, your going to get cut.

Rule one two three four and five.

You have to control the weapon, to control the weapon you have to control the arm/hand, and direction of thrust, or downward thrust

While your focus is on the knife, hopefully your stomping on feet, kicking knees and ankles. Understand it’s going to take both hands to control the weapon, work on wrists, elbows and fingers, the stuff your break, the more you turn a determined attack into a potential retreat.

The fights not over until you control the weapon, and the perpetrator. Unless your a real fast runner, running, or turning your back will just get you killed via your back.

The minute it’s over, get a belt a shirt, a sock, anything available on to use as a tourniquet, on any cut and heavy bleeding limb. Apply pressure seek friendly assistance, steal their belt, or other clothing items to secure your leakage.

Sit slow your breathing and blood flow. Conserve energy. Focus on remaining alive.

When the police arrive, remember this, memorize it. I was afraid for my life, or the life of others. The bad man demonstrated his willingness to kill by stabbing me with his knife. I defended myself.

It would not be wise to say something like ” he started it, and I finished it. I’m alive because he’s dead, and I killed him.

Best advise. Don’t say anything, demand an attorney, and do not answer questions without your attorney present.

The police will not call an attorney for you,” well if it was me, I wold happily call an attorney for you”.

A brief statement of fact is exceptable. I was attacked by the suspect, make sure the police understand the identity of the responsible, by physically pointing at him.

Also do not have the knife in your hands when the police arrive. They have zero idea as to who is responsible for the assault.

Hoping this helps so some should they find themselves in this unfortunate situation.

Dirk

I have been attacked by a man with a knife, in a phone booth of all places. He was huge, and strong. Being in the phone booth likely save one of our lives, I was able to control the knife hand, but truthfully the phone booth had taken his mobility away from him.

I did get a slice on the back of my hand, and I did break his wrist, and heavily damaged his shoulder, by yardimg on it. I kicked him I stomped-on him, I bit him. I WAS NOT GOING TO LOSE!

My hands were engaged. I could not get to my radio or my 1911 until I controlled the flow.

I was lucky.

I don’t share this stuff, to boast. If my experiences can help, then their worth being mentioned.

Best advise. Don’t get in that situation.

this vehicle and knife attacks have been common in Israel for years now – no media coverage to speak of – just Muslims attacking another body of people of another religion – could be a connection

Please read this, then in your own head tell me where we are at. I did not write this, but have copied for review daily.

In 2004, Richard Poe wrote in a article/Book-named ” Velvet Revolution”, which outlined these seven steps and strategies. Poe Writes this is the same blueprint used repeatedly by George Soro’s in other countries.

1.Form a shadow Govt.
2. Control the air waves.
3.Bleed the State dry.
4.Sow Unrest.
5.Provke an election crisis.
6. Take the streets.
7.outlast your opponents.

This isn’t rocket science, and I would take this to the next level, Soros is their point man, he’s their ” Boy” Soros isn’t really driving. Do you really think he is solely responsible for the amounts of money being spent, do you think Soros owns all the media corporations.

He doesn’t, this is Bildinerg, CRF, this is BIS, this is the top one percent imposing their will on We The People.

Friends, while I truly believe Trump can help, I’m a realist, and recognize that we are a failed nation. People on my side have zero change of reconciling with the left, frankly I don’t even want to try. I’ve seen their vision, and I simply don’t stand by them.

This nation is in for a split. Civil war? I don’t know. i do know we are one progressive side phone call away from serious clashes.

Don’t underestimate the left they are well orginized, had leadership in place, have transportation, medicine food, water legal sources, clubs rocks cap stun etc etc. you would be foolish to not understand that they also have vast weapons and ammo stored.

Keep in mind it takes about a day to instruct novice shooters to be battle field proficient. Those who excell will be further trained as sharp shooters and snipers, sappers and engineers.

Please pray for our nation. I hope you all continue to prep, load bullets, and pay attention, who knows what the trigger will be.

Mollypup, I agree to an extent, but I don’t think they would risk an EMP, I think they’ll use cyber to attack, it’s easier and I believe they already have the combination but not in the right order of that combination, yet.

The government may see a missle (EMP) coming but can’t see a cyber attack coming. Just look how many cyber attacks we’ve already have had over the past few years, the joint chiefs of staff, white house e-mails, the DNC, DOJ, DOD, all the private sector companies, etc..

Only missile we’ll “see” will be an EMP.

My theory anyway. Why? Well, why threaten the entire world to take out an enemy when an EMP will leave them virtually dead in the water? Retaliation? I suppose that is a risk, but if one covers ones bases well enough, not very high a risk. I’m certain the rest of the western world would not want to risk falling to the same thing.

IF the nuke option means “the bomb” whichever country decides to target us has just signed their death warrant, which means you’d darn well better have other missiles en route when you hit the US. Still, even with that……..it’s a total no win situation.

Sane leaders, don’t opt for the no win situation. Which is why we’ve yet to see this option used.

I’m going to venture to guess this is why EMP was developed.

Only other effective means of delivering a nuke to target would be terrorist style. (while praying no one assumes it was you) It’s not going to be very effective that way. Odds are you’ll be found out (even if it’s a guess) & we’re back to the no win situation.

Not worried about a nuclear attack. There isn’t a whole lot one can do to prep for that situation unless you’ve got cash to burn & a very deep hole in the ground in which to hide for a very long time. Unfortunately, even then you’re odds probably aren’t even 50/50. Believe it or not the aftermath is far worse than the bombs.

That is one scenario I don’t want to survive. I want to go as quickly as possible. Might be the only time I’d consider suicide a viable option.

Well said Dirk, it’s just a matter of time before the lid on the pressure cooker blows. Our enemies don’t fear us any longer and our allies don’t respect us.

We as a country are falling apart, our representatives in D.C. are fighting each other, they are not fighting for the people that put them in office, they’re representing themselves as a party, democrat against republican, republican against democrat and the fake news is pouring gasoline on the fire.

North Korea, Iran and ISIS are the ones to watch out for. Russia and China are pushing us around but they’re too smart to really start anything (nuclear). Although Uncle Vladamir is having a good laugh, all he’s done is hack our internet to spread the hate/division in the U.S. and it’s working in his favor, we are fighting amoung ourselves. We owe China too much money for them to send a nuc.

Then, you have all the snowflakes out there, but spring is here and the snowflakes will melt, but they’ll soon turn into buttercups and it’ll start all over again. All anyone can do is prep for what they believe is their worse case sonario.

RM, my apologies, wasn’t trying to call you out. For what it’s worth, I,did try and point out that the prepping part was spot on, as usual from you.

I often don’t think, I just post. It’s a good trait, and a bad curse, at different times.

Think is obvious I’m pro trump, HOWEVER, I’m growing very very concerned. I spent this morning watching the Senate hearing with FBI/NSA, directors. A couple of points became crystal clear.

The left are way way ahead in orginization, their is zero chances that the senators or their crew of useful idiots could have put all the Intel dump together. They literally beat the snot out of trump, even knowing non of its true. Per both directors, and the senate committee.

They were factual, orginized, and drove their points home systematically, what became crystal clear to me was that only one entity is capable of an Intel,dump of this magnitude, that’s deep state. Those folks HATE trump.

These are the war Hawks, those that have and are pushing for war.

I think it’s clear that all the moving parts for global war are in place. What remains unclear to me is the trigger, what will the trigger for this event be. I don’t know. Is it N Korea, is it Syria, is it the Pacific islands. I think all are viable, I just don’t know.

I have been pretty honest regarding Trump only buying us time.

My initial grasp of air after the election was that ” for at least the foreseeable” future WWIII was off the table.

After this past week, I think that window is closing quickly. One of my observations is that after 8 years of Obama, the rest of the world no longer takes the US seriously. They think we’ll turn the other cheek, like we did for 8 years.

Russia, China, Iran, the US,etc etc, all need to answer to the world, for our actions. We as a nation are culpable for our poor past leadership, and our bullying the rest of the world.

We are weak, very weak right now. Our military has been gutted, our professional,forces are simply worn out, from continuous war, our equipment is old and in need of repair, or replacement.

While we spin our wheels in the ME, our potential enemies used their capital to build a competent modern series of war machines.

China has its first ever foreign military base, and the Iranians and North Korea are both in need of a little spanking.

While my family continues to prep, I just have a very uneasy feeling. It’s not that we are each being spied on, I think it’s clear to,all that our govt is clearly doing that. I just don’t think most people realize just how far down the rabbit hole our nation really is.

It scares the living sh-t out of me, not for my sake, but my children and grand children’s sakes.,

I don’t know, however I do value everybody here’s oppinion. Please chime in, and share your immediate intermediate, and long term vision of where we are, are headed and how we end up in 4 years.

Thank,you in advance.

There’s two general nuclear scenarios one can consider. First is the “all out war” with much destruction on each side. That is the scenario most of the maps are generated around and they are useful for planning on where to live before such a war. After one it might help you find safer places. This scenario is also quite unlikely because of the destruction on both sides. Much more probable is the rogue actor scenario. ISIS and North Korea fit in this category. They have very limited strike abilities so the “map” approach helps only in understanding both blast and radiation distribution. Avoid downwind and don’t be too close when it goes off. If you are too close, you’re dead. If the blast didn’t get you, the only remaining concern is the radiation.

In my little mind the rogue actor is the concern but they will target something with very high visibility. In the US, that’s a major city, military installation, something of national significance, or infrastructure. It is an attack on infrastructure, specifically the grid, that is my concern but radiation and burst aren’t the killing aspects to worry about with an attack on the grid. ISIS can’t do that because you’d need a high altitude burst and they don’t have the launch capability. Honestly, nukes not one of my top concerns.

NOTE: (Photos are large and were making the page scroll, so I’m just posting the link) -k

If a nuclear bomb is dropped on your city, here’s where you should run and hide
http://www.businessinsider.com/nuclear- … =buffer-bi

  • People who survive a nuclear blast may be exposed to radioactive ash and dust called fallout.
  • Finding a good shelter as soon as possible and going inside is critical to surviving fallout.
  • A scientist has come up with a strategy for when and whether to move to a better fallout shelter.

President Trump has egged on a new arms race. Russia violated weapons treaties to upgrade its nuclear arsenal. North Korea is developing long-range missiles and practicing for nuclear war — and the US military is considering preemptive attacks on the isolated nation’s military facilities.

Meanwhile, nuclear terrorism and dirty bombs remain a sobering threat.

Though these events are unlikely to trigger the last-ditch option of nuclear war, let alone a blast in your neighborhood, they are very concerning.

So you might be wondering, “If I survive a nuclear-bomb attack, what should I do?”

Michael Dillon, a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researcher, crunched the numbers and helped figure out just that in a 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical and Physical Sciences.

Likewise, government agencies and other organizations have also explored the harrowing question and came up with detailed recommendations and response plans. *** CONTINUED at LINK, above ****

Great artical Eochief66, thanks for sharing. I’ve been saying for many years that civil unrest will begin slowly and then esculate. I don’t believe we’re in a civil war yet but soon will be. But back in the 60’s I remember all the civil unrest then, all the rioting in the cities, we’re not there yet as far as politics, but getting awful close. If things don’t change in the next year or so, yes, it will get very violent, just like the 60’s.

The far left and the fake news are loading their guns waiting for an oppertunity to squeeze the trigger.

How about a solar charging system, such as Goal Zero for the non-disposable batteries? I have a fold-up portfolio version in a couple of ESD / Foil bags in my car at all times

They have small fold-up systems for 50-100 dollars, such as: http://amzn.to/2lLYUMg

Ken,

I think that location and who you surround yourself with have a large part with being ‘woken up’, there are obviously a million other factors, values, upbringing, etc. I was stationed overseas for a long time so for me there was no such thing as prepping and the places I was stationed were all very liberal. Once I made back stateside where I could hunt and fish again, along with other things I was actually able to start prepping. The wife and I are now on our way to financial freedom by paying off our house and everything else early but I still prep in the name of saving money and providing security for her. I was also able to see the whole political landscape because of my travels both official and non-official. I’ve seen the middle east tear itself apart and knowing Europe the way I did and the way I see it now it is complete chaos. My wife who is very liberal isn’t blind to it either, she is constantly asking me if things she sees on TV are real, as in she can’t believe all the violence out there right now. We also live in St Louis (which we love) but she reads about assaults and shootings all the time and just wants to leave. That is precisely why we are paying off the house early and trying to figure out where we want to go after this.

I think there will be a lot of sporadic violence in the next few years with Trump in office but if he wins re-election I expect way worse. I think right now liberals believe that he will be out in 4 so they aren’t going to be completely awful but once they realize 8 years with him I expect to see full-blown riots. Just keep your head on a swivel and keep prepping and you’ll be alright.

im one of the babies here at 44. I wont lie 10 years ago I was sheep. GOing to work and ignoring most things. Im not sure what woke me up but something lit a fire under my tail a few years ago. Im still years away from having what I want and need but im years away from where I was just a few years ago. Being here and reading and learning from most of you has helped exponentially. Now that the wife is on board 100% its even easier. Reading stuff like what Dirk wrote just a few posts up has me worried. I feel the same way and I cant shake it. I think in the long run we may be alright here but I am really unsure. Thank God I got out of the city when I did and woke the heck up. Thanks to you guys I at least have a fighting chance now.

The revolution will not be one grand event, but millions of acts of political defiance and ignoring whatever is politically correct. When it becomes so common that it is the norm, you will have your war!

The real monitory support for the left is thin. I have a relative who is well off and very liberal. He also lives in a gated community and sends his kids to a very white private school. Tear those walls down and you will see his true colors in a hurry.

Nor should you assume every minority supports every other minority. As a Native American I like most people from India and many from Mexico! Most are willing to work for what they want and have damn little use for those who don’t. Hell – I can’t stand my own useless people, why would I tolerate your useless people? Nor do I give a crap what happened decades or centuries ago! Past time for everyone to grow up and get on with their life! Swamp

I am only 56 , young compared to others here so my knowledge in limited .
I have never seen America at the point we are at now . People are being pitted against each other for a reason , race against race , cops against the people , dems against repubs , poor against the rich , man against woman or gender ? against gender ?? ,religion against religion , or no beliefs against beliefs , morals against morals .
There are books that others have spoke of about the method being used to advance there agenda . i have read them and a few others they will give you a better understanding of what is going on .
With all the turmoil being fueled by each side by there speeches we are at a tipping point and it is being driving by fear . i think there is an agenda and it might start a war on our soil , history repeating itself 1860-1865 , it want be north verses South it will be neighbor against neighbor . I do not know what will be the spark to start it and there are a lot of sparks , i have popcorn and a chair just waiting to see what might happen .
