I have recently read a thread started by someone else that mentioned the same topic I now again present.
I read this forum daily to keep abreast of world events since MSM is less than worthless.
We continually see threads and information regarding troop movements, armament movements, military exercises (shows of strength), unusual formations of military aircraft, flights of military aircraft at other than normal times in other than normal locations and on and on and on.
These things cost literally billions of dollars and appear to be increasing in intensity daily.
The major world powers appear to be squaring off in many locations of the world.
The lesser players are doing likewise and, naturally, the terrorists and assorted nuts are continuing to wreak havoc with daily life all over the world.
All members here, so inclined, are making preparations of various types in anticipation of some event that will impact them personally because of their location or the world in general.
I realize that this is somewhat considered a "doom site" but the same info discussed here is getting into every internet web site I visit including Facebook which I don't visit but I am told by others that it is, likewise, loading up on impending doom.
In the midst of all this verbiage, on the web, in the news and in table talk at restaurants etc. there seems to be a recent "lull" in the discussion, threats etc. as hardware has been moved or is being moved into place.
IMO the world has essentially "squared off" for conflict and is now just bringing up reinforcements and waiting for the first shot to be fired.
I could go on for pages of miscellaneous supporting examples but I believe that is unnecessary for this crowd.
In addition to the various militaries of the world the right and left political factions are squared off.
Various races are squared off. (Here and all over the world.)
In some relatively small arenas the rhetoric has been replaced by actual violence and it appears to be increasing in frequency.
Prophets of doom/violence are coming out of the woodwork on the web and occasionally in the MSM.
Months ago the Curmudgeon had a thread saying he felt all hell was getting ready to break loose.
I am of the same conviction today... at this moment.
The relatively modest/mundane thread topics on the main page are indicative of the uncanny silence.
The pickup of activity in the BS is indicative of action taking place about which no one is actually speaking.
I go about my days here in the woods doing what I normally do and keeping in close contact with loved ones and friends to make sure they are aware of "things" as much as is possible.
I recommend highly others do likewise.
I don't know where or when but...
something big is about to pop.....
and I believe it is down to hours.
