Many days have passed, and lot of water has flown down the bridges, since we last wrote about the December 2006, the deadline. As we wrote in June 2006, United States has now successfully installed a friendly government in Iraq and now looking beyond the borders, to Iran. Israel has been able to convince her friends for taking all the threats for once and for all and is Preparing for the reactions. The war drum is getting louder.
US is building its naval presence around the Persian Gulf and in the meantime, US officials have started accusing Iran of meddling with Iraqi affairs. Iran on the other hand is resisting, claiming her right of civil nuclear use and Iranian President has announced yesterday that he will give good news, to his nation, by April 09, 2007. War drum is beating, getting louder and louder, history is repeating, the question is how much the world is prepared? The war this time might be simple military confrontation as that of US confrontation with Afghanistan and Iraq or it might become WW3 with nukes flying over the world.
Its time for the world’s political leadership and ordinary citizens to think about the consequences of the expanding military confrontations and rising number of natural calamities around the world. Some countries are preparing for the Nuclear War while others are building Vaults for the seeds to survive the Armageddon.
Its time for us to evaluate if we are prepared, for any major natural disaster or WWIII? If not then its time to have a disaster management and recovery plan on hand, for ourselves and our families at least. After the Asian Tsunami hit South Asia and the Earthquake struck Pakistan, there was lot of talking about Disaster Management and Tsunami warning systems but still there is nothing on ground. People have forgotten about them now. Since governments are doing nothing, it’s advisable that the citizens have contingency plans of their own. We need to be optimistic with golden hopes, yet prepared for the worse. Those who survive, needs water, food, shelter, medicine and other basic supplies. At least there should be backups for water and food supply along with some sort of shelter.
