spinifex: I want nuclear subs with nuclear weapons systems so bad ... but lets not still fool around designing something new. Lets just get the best there currently is in existence today and get them combat ready ASAP. Core national defence!

spinifex: Then lets get serious with SAM weapons systems (including early warning and electronic warfare aircraft to enhance the use of SAMs)

spinifex: The rest of defence spending can be diverted into those two areas. The days of running around doing asymetrical warfare police actions is over for both Oz and the US. The next war will be much more like WW2 ... but teched up!

malewithatail: In one swoop, the USA has created the 5 th most powerful army in the world. The total amount of aid given to Israel in the last 60 years is 100 billion, and now they gave the Taliban 80 billion dollars of stuff. Who is this insane president anyway ?

Every scout knows the value of being prepared. But for a growing subculture of so-called ‘Preppers’, preparedness has moved well beyond DYB, DYB, DOB, DOB.
At the extreme, some are busy stockpiling armaments, food and clothing while awaiting an inevitable Armageddon: be it religious, economic, social, or ‘all of the above’.
They’re the visible part of the Prepper story, but they’re not the whole story.
Other more moderate souls see being better prepared for a possible misfortune as not only prudent, but a return to values of personal self-reliance and responsibility.
