Acts of War
The cold war is over but we should never let our guard down.
Having lived through the Cuban Crisis, I sense the reality as to how tensions can rise and get out of control between governments.
The wrong response by the United States to a Middle Eastern problem or North Korea could result in a calamity of event which could escalate quickly.
Having an Emergency Preparedness Plan that includes being prepared for such an event is prudent regardless of the perceived probability today.
Such an event would be a level 4 or possibility level 5 event considering a nuclear winter or a global financial collapse.
