With the recent incidents in the Ukraine making the news headlines (in Europe) daily, I think I will throw my opinion into the ring for comment. The USA has sent 1B$ to the Ukraine and the EU is sending 15B€ to help them out (buy them out) from Russian control. Where is this money coming from I ask? The EU has bailed out Greece, Spain, Portugal, Iceland and "I think" Ireland (maybe wrong on that one). The social systems in Europe are really something, supporting people who do not want to work as well as many that will work. The immigrants coming daily into Germany (mostly from Muslim countries) are in the 10s of thousands, all receiving "welfare" from the first day they arrive. Now with the extra money going to the Ukraine, I think it is just a matter of time (short time) before the governments have no more money to support their social systems, and say to their CITIZENS, sorry no money this month. CHAOS!! Ad to this scenerio a terrorist attack on the electric system - no lights, no gas, no cash registers working - again - CHAOS. Or throw in the possibility of Russia just re-taking the countries they lost with the fall of the Berlin wall - again - CHAOS. When civil unrest in the USA happens, it will domino over here really fast - collapse of the dollar (which is a big joke here anyway) - again - CHAOS. Anyone wonder why I am a prepper?
