Under Siege By Terrorism, Germany Warns “Population Obliged to Hold Supply of Food For 10 Days”

Editor’s Comment: It would seem that all the reassurances on the part of Merkel and others for the status quo, in the face of massive upheaval and mounting civil unrest in Europe, have limited shelf value. No one is settled over migration, and terrorism is only growing as a threat.

Instead, German government is urging all citizens to stockpile a minimum of 10 days of food, water and emergency supplies, and hinting at a much larger attack that could disrupt ordinary life in a potentially catastrophic way. Germany has been openly preparing for an unprecedented military response inside the countries borders in which martial law would be used to restore order after a major attack.

As our regular readers know, the threat of terrorism is only one small reason to be prepared with a food supply and other essentials. During an emergency, these preps may not only be life saving, they may provide the only way of remaining independent and self-sufficient. The fact that Germany has issued this warning is a testament to how badly the powers-that-be are allowing the stable Western democracies to be attacked within. It is only a matter of time before it happens here in the U.S.

German Government Urges Citizens To Stockpile Food, Water “In Case Of Attack Or Catastrophe”

by Tyler Durden

For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government plans to tell citizens to stockpile food and water in case of an attack or catastrophe, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper reported on Sunday.

Following Angela Merkel’s proclamation that Islamic terrorism is not a function of the massive influx of muslim immigrants into Germany thanks to he immigration policy, we could not help but be a little surprised that, as TagesSchau reports, the federal government, according to a newspaper report wants to encourage the population to begin stockpiling food and water again, so that they temporarily can take care of themself in the case of a disaster or an armed attack. As Reuters details,

Germany is currently on high alert after two Islamist attacks and a shooting rampage by a mentally unstable teenager last month. Berlin announced measures earlier this month to spend considerably more on its police and security forces and to create a special unit to counter cyber crime and terrorism.

“The population will be obliged to hold an individual supply of food for ten days,” the newspaper quoted the government’s “Concept for Civil Defence” – which has been prepared by the Interior Ministry – as saying.

The paper said a parliamentary committee had originally commissioned the civil defense strategy in 2012.

A spokesman for the Interior Ministry said the plan would be discussed by the cabinet on Wednesday and presented by the minister that afternoon. He declined to give any details on the content.

People will be required to stockpile enough drinking water to last for five days, according to the plan, the paper said.

…the precautionary measures demand that people “prepare appropriately for a development that could threaten our existence and cannot be categorically ruled out in the future,” the paper cited the report as saying.

A further priority should be more support of the armed forces by civilians, it added.

Germany’s Defence Minister said earlier this month the country lay in the “crosshairs of terrorism” and pressed for plans for the military to train more closely with police in preparing for potential large-scale militant attacks.

So apart from stockpiling enough food and water for 10 days; supporting the military; protecting yourself from “a threat to our existence,” everything is awesome and Merkel’s immigration policy has helped?

We ask – what do they know? Or is this simply more scare-mongering since “A nation in fear is even better influenced and controlled.”
